Got Garbage? Make Fertilizer!  Sunday Message

We all have personal garbage that can keep us stuck, cause us suffering and blind us to our own divinity and our own wisdom.  In this talk, I look at the ways that we can use acceptance, self-compassion and the power of Christ to transform our garbage into fertilizer that can enrich our lives.

Transform Wounds Into Wisdom : Sunday Workshop

Thich Nhat Hanh says “No mud. No lotus.” The beautiful lotus flower grows out of the dankest muddy pond. Transform Wounds Into Wisdom provides an opportunity for participants to bring the light of love and compassion to an experience that causes pain so that they can discover the wisdom that is rooted there. Regardless of the source of the pain, this approach allows each of us to reframe our experience and free up space for new perspectives, new ideas and new ways of living in the world.

As you enter more deeply into the study of the Science of Mind, you will begin to see how your personal inward search for an understanding of your relationship to God and the Universe eventually brings you to a very important aspect of  the spiritual experience-living as a beneficial presence in the world.

This course helps one delve into and develop the practices of Affirmative Prayer and Meditation.  It is a great introduction to and also an excellent refresher on these profound spiritual practices. The course includes a review of basic Science of Mind Principles.

Watch for our next class.
