Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

Kahlil Gibran

In the May 3rd Silent Sunday online gathering, we’ll be opening to the possibly universal desire to offer our truest expression to the world,  to contribute to ‘the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible’, as Charles Eisenstein has so precisely expressed it.

The longing to be of service often co-exists with feeling limited, confused and overwhelmed. Perhaps these times are particularly powerful for bringing this seeming contradiction to the foreground in our lives.

Together, we’ll explore the importance of nurturing our deepest aspirations as well as what seems to be in the way. Maybe you’ve resonated with the expression ‘what’s in the way, is the way’. The emphasis in the teachings will be on learning to navigate our inner world so that blockades become entranceways.

There will be 3 meditations (2 guided and 1 silent), followed by a sharing Circle and teaching. I also plan on some gentle movement and singing which are age old practices across all cultures that help us to connect to ourselves and others, and clear the way for a deeper recognition of who we really, and what is really going on.

If you feel called to join us, upon registration, I will send suggestions for priming your body and soul this week as we lead up to our gathering.

General intentions for Silent Sundays

  • Learn, deepen & refresh your meditation practice;
  • Take time away from your usual demands, and spend time in stillness;
  • Let go more easily into the flow of life, and deepen into trust;
  • See your patterns with increased clarity and compassion, and use them as a stepping off point for evolution;
  • Gain new perspective on challenges, both personal and global, and relax into peace;
  • Re-vitalize your body, and set the foundation for lifelong health.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to pause
in order to receive the personal and collective updates that are possible
when we keep our hearts open,
our feet on the ground,
and our beings open to the Great Mystery.
