Sunday Gather at Shine with community brunch afterward


As everything is bursting and blossoming around us, what better time to learn a spiritual practice to hear guidance from nature about the important things in our lives - those big decisions we need to make, those things that we are wanting to create, the longing that we want to fulfill. This Sunday we'll learn how to tune in to wisdom tailored just for us and that we wouldn't have heard otherwise. In the process, we'll strengthen our connection with something larger that connects us all because we'll be tapped into the undeniable web of life that is nature itself. 

Our May theme is Earth Tree Dirt Love Love Love" and is inspired by Shine Restaurant's potion "The Empress" which is full of herbs, liquids and intention to support the process of creation within all of us. What better guide than the earth itself to teach us about creating since everything in nature is a constant cycle of growth, harvest, rest and renewal. 

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. 


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!
