welcoming the guest

Dear Community,
Ironic how the earth’s rhythms are settling further and further into stillness, and our social calendars are in fierce opposition!
I invite each of us to slow down, pay attention to the wisdom of nature, cultivate quietude wherever possible.

And… as you step into the activities of life, I hope you’ll consider joining us when:

Pir Moinuddin Christopher Clarke will be our special guest and my esteemed co-leader for this Thursday’s Dances of Universal Peace in Fort Collins! – Thursday, December 12th, 7 PM – At Unity Church (1401 W Vine) – Moinuddin was here to co-lead a retreat with me last fall. He brings a depth of knowledge and a passion for spiritual practice that encourages all of us to tend The Holy in our lives and in the world.

I recently discovered this outrageous thing… why hasn’t anyone told me about this?
Does anyone have one I can play with for a few minutes? I think that’s all I want in life.

Love and big smiles,
