Thanks to all that attended our February Gather this past Sunday - what a lovely group, and the ceremony, “The Weaving of Many Truths” was very meaningful - we created the beginnings of a mini-tapestry together where each woven thread represents the spiritual truth unique to the person weaving the thread. I’ll be carrying it around with me to our various Sacred House events so that each new person can weave in their own thread and eventually we’ll have a community-created tapestry to use on our ceremony table!
Our next Gather in March is on Sunday, March 30th. Please make a note on your calendar and stay tuned either here on the blog or on our mailing list for the theme.
Very much looking forward to our February Gather this coming Sunday - come join in our new hour-long format with quiet meditative time, a special ceremony and group visioning/prayer. Afterwards, we all head to lunch.
Our Gather theme for this month is The Weaving of Many Truths. During our ceremony, we’ll begin to collectively weave a tapestry for our ceremony table that represents the many unique definitions of spirituality of all our members. In taking part, you will gain more clarity about your own truths, and celebrate them in the process. At the end of our Gather we’ll have the beginnings of a physical tapestry that represents the richness of experience in our community. We’ll keep adding to the tapestry over the coming months as new people join in with us!
See you then, and for all details on Gathers, visit our Calendar page and How It Works page. If you’re new to Sacred House, the How It Works page will also fill you in on our various events and offerings.
Much love, Lisa
Very excited for our Gather tomorrow! We’ve changed our Sunday Gather format so that we do them once a month now, rather than every week. In addition, we’ve added Spiritual Adventure groups twice a month, plus social/spiritual outings as well. More about all of that on our How It Works page. We even have a 4-step process we’ll be using moving forward to support all Sacred Housers to get really clear about their own personal “spiritual recipe”. More on that on the 4-Step Process page.
Our Gather format has also changed - it’s an hour long now, with a section to drop into sacred space, then a community ceremony of meaning for the month, then a time of collective vision/prayer/blessing. After that, we all head to lunch together at a local restaurant.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Sacred House is taking its Winter Break right now, so in the meantime let’s ponder our community new year question together:
"I wonder how it will feel when I am/create/go/do _____________ in the coming year?"
By assuming that something you want to see happen will happen and then cultivating a sense of wonder about how it will feel when it does, you activate your pre-frontal cortex - a part of your brain in charge of aha moments, infinite possibilities and creative solutions. This is actually a form of prayer - a way to collaborate with something larger that connects us all, whatever that means to you. Play with this question and see what happens!
If you’re not on it already, please hop on our email list for weekly community questions, plus updates about our next Sunday Gather and other events before that.
It’s Sacred House’s winter break, which means that our next Sunday Gather is January 26th, 2014. Please make a note in your calendars, and we’ll be excited to see you in the new year :)
In the meantime, if you’re on our email list, watch for our weekly email - we’ll still have a weekly theme with all-things-spiritual to ponder during the holiday season, and especially topics that hit home for us spiritual but not religious types.
We may also have some special events before the next Gather on January 26th, so stay tuned for updates via our email list.
If you’re not already on the email list and would like to be on it, you can click through here for the sign-up page.
Blessings to you and see you soon!
