At Shine Restaurant's Gathering Place
2027 13th St, Boulder, CO
Spiritual Practice Gathers give us an opportunity to facilitate inner change with spiritual practice in a group setting, thus facilitating that inner change more effectively. This is the last Gather of our October "Firewater" theme before we take one Sunday off (Oct. 26th) for our mid-season break and return on Nov. 2nd.
About our "Inner Fire Awake" Spiritual Practice Gather: There is an ignition switch within each of us - a spark of creativity, passion and fire that starts as a motivating feeling, from the core, and moves us into action. What is the passion that you bring to life? What are you here for? This passion is an expression of your inner divinity - your unique expression of that something larger that connects us all. When you activate that passion, how might it impact the world? This is a Spiritual Practice Gather, which means that we'll do a group spiritual practice to help each person recognize the unique form of passion that they bring, and invite that passion to come more alive in each person's life.
Our October theme is inspired by Shine's potion "Firewater" - an intentional drink that supports us to activate our inner fire and passion.
Weekly Sunday Gathers are sacred events to connect with our divine selves, with each other and with something larger that connects us all. We do this through guided meditation, song, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities, thoughtful time for prayer and blessing, and we also bring in guest speakers for once-monthly learning talks. After our Gather, we enjoy each other's company and conversation over yummy brunch in the Shine Restaurant.
The Gather itself starts at 11:15 am and goes to 12:30 pm. A donation amount of your choice is greatly appreciated. When you arrive at Shine, head to the back room which is the Gathering Place, and that's where you'll find Sacred House. Seating is provided, or bring a pillow if you like to sit on the floor. Dress is casual and comfortable.
After the Gather we head out into the restaurant to socialize and eat together from Shine's delicious brunch menu. The charge for brunch is based on what you pick from the menu! Shine offers local, organic, holistic comfort food made from the heart, and they also make these amazing, magical non-alcoholic potions that are yummy and good for your soul. They work directly with farmers and host numerous events that support community. Their goal: When you support Shine, you support local community. Here's the link to view Shine's brunch menu, and here's a link to the page on their site that talks about the heart and soul behind their food & drink.
AND, there is also a morning yoga class at Shine at 10:00 am, before our Gather - with wonderful instructor Liz Clough. If you want, you can do the triple play - come for yoga, then the Gather, then brunch!
