Upcoming Talks

Sunday Topics for August

Theme: THE KEYS TO HOME
How we are led and pushed to our true nature (home) is what spirituality and personal growth are all about. To find our way, alone and together, is the purpose of spiritual friendship. I honor two commitments in my struggle to be the person I was born to be. The first is to find and create inner food. The other is to stay awake and in love with the common center of all paths. Our whole life becomes one continual practice.

August 4    SEEING WITH NEW EYES
To see things with a quiet mind and an open heart is the way to liberation and integration. When we see with the eyes of oneness we know that we live in a fully sacred universe where everything is a pointer to an epiphany.

August 11    THE AUTHENTIC LIFE
Living authentically, we trip into the heart of things and experience the interconnectedness of things again and again. The gentler we are the more capable we are of letting things enter and move on through. We surrender into awe and become intimate with the mystery of life.

August 18    MAKING SPACE FOR MORE
Pure consciousness is never just me, trapped inside myself. Rather, it is an observing of “me” that allows us to see our connectedness. As we awaken in the beginners mind we expand consciousness and allow for the surprises of insight and awe.

August 25    UNDERSTANDING THE WEAVE
To understand the weave of life we need to find the other threads. Inner and outer connections enliven our kinship to life. As we pull back the curtains and open the windows, and stop making everything in our own image, we let life reach us, one colorful thread at a time.

Sunday Topics for September

Theme: THE WISE HEART
Unveil the principles of an ancient ‘science of mind’ that are woven into the wondrous map of the human heart. Let us meet whatever confronts us in life with a caring and tranquil heart.

September 1    THE AWAKENED HEART
A peaceful heart gives birth to love. When love meets suffering it turns to compassion. When love meets happiness, it turns to joy. When we touch peace, love, joy and compassion in ourselves, we are transformed.

September 8    HOLDING THE WORLD IN KINDNESS: THE DOORWAY OF COMPASSION
Compassion is our deepest nature. It arises from our interconnection with all things. Our guest speaker, Donna Reed will share her heart with us and her good work in the field of compassion in action.

September 15    THE SACRED SHIFT FROM ‘HEALING OURSELVES’ TO ‘HOLDING OURSELVES’
Ernest Holmes told us that “There is nothing to heal, only our wholeness to be revealed.” When we embrace our broken heart we discover that we have always been held in the hands of grace.

September 22    THE COMPASS OF THE HEART
When we understand karma and intention, we are given the opportunity to set the compass of our heart and dedicate ourselves to our highest intention. That is what will transform our world.

September 29    EMBODYING THE WISE HEART
Mother Teresa said “The problem with the world is that we draw our family circle too small.” As the delusion of separation falls away we merge with the heart of the One. Love then leads the way and we say “yes”.
