  • May 7, 2022, Living in Gratitude. Each day, we receive a new 24 hours of life. Be here, be awake, be grateful.

  • June 4, 2022, Living in Presence. Your presence is who you are. Every moment that you are awake to who you are is a holy moment. Living from our fuller presence can bring us joy and help to heal our wounded world.

  • July 9, 2022, Healing into Wholeness. We were born whole, with no separation between our inner and outer lives. Along the way, we may have experienced a lack of trust, a sense of not being heard, or fear for our safety. With awareness, we again sense a dawning wholeness and wellbeing.
