I totally dig shadow-work, spelunking into the dark crevasses of the psyche, discovering all the monsters that hide there. I’ve tended to approach this exploration like a heroic battle quest to vanquish these demons or maybe (if they’re lucky and I’m clever enough) to transform them into something nicer.

But I’m wondering now what might be available if I just let my shadow be. What if it doesn’t need to be conquered or transformed or rescued or healed? What if we’re fine just the way we are? Perhaps we can even be grateful for the play of light AND shadow throughout our being, and the ways that our shadows actually connect us to each other and to the entire world.

I can’t wait to see you on Saturday for our service of song & celebration. With Patty Stephens and Sid Fendley. Service at 6:00, snacks at 5:30. XO, Drew

We will be concluding our series on Brene Brown’s “Braving the Wilderness” this Wednesday as we bring together all of the elements of the past three talks together. We will explore walking through the world with a strong back--standing with dignity and love and respect for who we are--while at the same time keeping a soft front, allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and open. And through that, this wild heart that we all carry within comes alive as it leads us into every call to adventure that life brings.

Looking forward to concluding this series with all of you. If you’ve made it to one, some or none of the prior talks in this series, this one will encompass them all.

Service starts at 6:30, Happy Hours starts at 6.

Until then, Wild Hearts,
Masando

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to prosper in changing times, and how we progress when so many of us are experiencing great uncertainty. And I have, once again, found this beginning of an answer in the teachings of mystical Islam, this time from Bahauddin, the father of Rumi, who says, "Someone asks, Why does God cause one way to prosper and then another? I answer, We cannot know or interfere with that. We know only that there is a path we go on as we say, All praise to God. This is the extent of the planning we do.”

Join us on Sunday as we explore deeper our call to prosper no matter what the circumstances.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

The word “affluence” literally means “plentiful flow.” To feel affluent is to experience good fortune pouring through our lives.

I’ve been thinking about the areas of life in which I feel this sort of abundant flow, and where I’m feeling more of a trickle or even a blockage or stoppage. And I’m considering the ways in which I am perhaps participating in this constriction — by holding too tightly that which I fear to lose, by asking Life to hold me tight to protect me from change, for security’s sake avoiding movement and momentum and aliveness…

But the thing is: Divine Flow requires us to hold & be held through and as transformation, not instead of it.

“Where am I going on this glorious journey? To your house, of course.” — Rumi

We are continuing are series on Brene Brown’s “Braving the Wilderness” this week as we focus on the chapter entitled “Speak Truth to BS. Be Civil.” I’ve often found it difficult to marry these two approaches, yet I am coming to realize that to be most effective, to live in a way where we can “claim and care for one’s [own] identity, needs and beliefs without degrading someone else’s in the process,” we must come into some bravery and belonging so deeply to ourselves that we don’t feel the need to diminish others when we find ourselves in disagreement. We’ll explore more tools to engage in this brave way this week.

I am so enjoying this powerful, challenging and deepening experience of going through the wilderness together with all of you!

Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Service starts at 6:30, Happy Hour starts at 6.

Brave On,
Masando

As aware, sensitive people we will always be impacted by the world around us. It is natural that we will be moved by events, and we must also always remember that we are making an impact as well. In seen and unseen ways, the ways we move transform our collective experience.

Join us on Sunday to explore the impact we can make when we are clear that our lives are a movement of Spirit.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner
