Courage to act

You are invited to join us for a soul-tending circle this Wednesday, January 25, from 5-7 pm PST.

Using the sacred drumbeat to connect to the wisdom of the heart, gathering with intention around the fire of sacred community, this circle is meant to help us root in the deeper wisdom and love that upholds and supports us in every moment.

Only with practice, friendship, and time set apart from the demands of the day, can we glimpse and become acquainted with the Love that generously provides all the ingredients we need for life.

I’ve been thinking a lot about spirituality as I meet with unhoused folks living in shelters without electricity and running water this past week. Really, at the end of the day, what good is it? 

In the practice of spirituality, be it meditation, prayer, sacred circle, or sit spot (as some examples), we practice devotion to something larger than ourselves. For me, that being is Gaia, but for you, “It” might be something or someone else. 

To me, the point of spirituality isn’t found in the names of our Gods or the practices themselves, but instead in what the discipline of devotion engenders in each of us. 

A spirituality worth its salt helps us to learn what is ours to learn, embrace what we’ve previously held at arm’s length, and supply the courage we need to move into action.

I feel so much better a week into it, y’all. This was the next logical step on my journey. Without this sacred community and practice, I wouldn’t have said “yes” to the challenge.

Thank you. I hope you can join us this week.
