Communion with Heart and Soul

Listening...perhaps this is the most important time to listen. Listening inwardly as well as to our outer lives and life around us. This listening allows us to hear the heartbeat of our daily actions. If we do not work at this depth, the foundation of anything that we do will not hold.

Finding Strength in the Silence

Over and over in our lives, when we sit quietly, in the night or during a brief moment in the day, there is always this question: where do we put our attention? Holding this question, we can become receptive to an inner response. It is how the feminine works. We listen.

Once there was a seed...

We sit in circle... six women who are homeless and living in shelters, a colleague and myself. After a silent meditation, I offer a writing exercise that begins with the words, Once there was a seed….

There is a Way

In a dream I ask, “How can humanity endure the suffering that is taking place in the world? A teacher tells me, “There is a way, I believe, to relate to the inner - this is the way.”

Is this not the feminine? To turn to the inner, which allows us to hold the outer?

The Return of Knowledge

I have been reflecting on what it means for a woman to live her sacred power. For that is what life calls out for us to bring forth and to live. Maybe we are afraid of bringing this knowing conscious because of a prior era when such knowledge was suppressed.
