THIS SUNDAY MAY 10TH - MOTHER EARTH & OTHER HOLY MOTHERS
This Sunday we'll call on the divine feminine in the spirit of different traditions...
This Sunday is Mother's Day and what better day to stir up the divine feminine in all of us. Most spiritual traditions have some version of the divine feminine represented in their stories, symbols and ceremonies. Since our May theme celebrates the earth, we'll do a practice to activate divine Mother Earth in all of us, then we'll do additional spiritual practices for the divine feminine in other spiritual traditions. There is a special kind of wisdom that comes from connecting with the divine feminine, and we can each discover how this fits with our individual spiritual style. Which other holy mothers will we celebrate and invoke? Come this Sunday to find out ;)
Our Gather is from 11:15 am to 12:30 pm at Shine Restaurant's Gathering Place, and you can stay afterward for a community toast, yummy organic brunch and great conversation. You can also come early for Shine's yoga class with Tucker Shelton at 10:00 am. All are by donation. Full details are on our Gather page and Calendar page.
MORE ABOUT SUNDAY GATHERS...
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, music, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities 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 Tucker Shelton. If you want, you can do the triple play - come for yoga, then the Gather, then brunch!
