We are almost there - the end of 2020! Just a few more weeks!
A year ago, could you even have imagined how this year of 2020 would unfold?
The year has brought many unbelievable challenges! But if we look a little closer, there have been some blessings hidden among the challenges.
Not always easy to recognize, of course! But for me, I know I’ve experienced a greater appreciation for my connections to friends and family and my broader spiritual community, even if often it needs to be from a distance. These connections have been such a lovely support and blessing to me in this unusual year as I have stepped into new endeavors in the midst of a pandemic.
Find out more about the spiritual community coming together for “Bring Spirit to the Holidays: 13 Sacred Night Challenge”.
As the holidays approach and the year 2020 comes to a close, are you feeling sad or anxious about how to honor the holidays in our current pandemic conditions when you can’t gather with others to celebrate?
Are you searching for how to create a meaningful experience during the holiday season in these circumstances? Are you wondering how to connect with others in a community, even from a distance?
In this darker time in the midst of the season of winter, we naturally experience a longing to move inward and experience inner peace and deeper soul nourishment. We feel the rhythm of Mother Earth who is breathing in to nourish and renew. We too can turn inward.
This year, I warmly invite you to join me to participate, as spiritual community, in "Bring Spirit to the Holidays" for the 13 Sacred Nights of Dec. 24th – January 6th and explore together words of wisdom from St. Hildegard that support us today.
As we join together in this sacred experience, you will ….
As these sacred nights approach, I remember warmly the dear friend and mentor that St. Hildegard had in her life. He supported her in following her divine calling, even when she felt like she couldn’t!
This beloved friend, a monk named Volmar, was the first person to validate St. Hildegard’s visions as divine experiences. He recognized her rare spiritual gifts and became a good friend and mentor for many years in her life.
St. Hildegard often doubted herself and her abilities to share her gifts with the world. When she turned to her teacher and friend, Volmar, she shared her self-doubt, and he strongly encouraged her to write about her experiences.
Over the next 10 years, she shared her experiences in the text that would become her visionary work, Scivias,and Volmar became her secretary, writing down the words she dictated.
Volmar, St. Hildegard’s friend, confidant, and secretary, was in her life for over 60 years! It’s clear that St. Hildegard greatly valued and appreciated her dear friend who supported and encouraged her.
We see how the steps on our journey are a little easier to follow when we have someone in our community that supports and encourages us. We don’t have to do it alone!
Join me and our spiritual community this year in Bring Spirit to the Holidays: 13 Sacred Night Challenge from Dec. 24th – January 6th and explore together the wisdom that St. Hildegard offers us today.
Starting on the 24th of December through the 6th of January, I invite you to work with one meditation inspired by St. Hildegard of Bingen per day. As you do this, you’ll also pay special attention to your dreams and write down what you remember each day. You’ll notice if there are any connections between your dreams and the questions asked in the meditations.
You’ll be joining me and also others in this spiritual community who are engaging in this same practice of inner work during the Sacred Nights. You can share your experiences and listen to others share theirs in the private Facebook Group: Live Our Dreams Community.
Through this journey of meditation and journaling during this sacred time, you’ll come away with a sense of peace and fulfillment as you digest the year that has passed. You’ll be ready to go forward into the new year with sacred guidance and momentum.
Don’t miss this challenge. It’s only offered this time of year!
