Living a spiritual life in our modern world is a layered experience. We need to hold the individual and all of their layers, society and all of its facets, the levels of reality, and the cycle of action and reflection deepening in daily life. There are a lot of subtle moving parts to account for and tend to. In many traditions this is not an individual experience. But in a society where spirituality is quantified and turned into a commodity our spiritual lives are often broken into parts instead of honored in its infinite layers. Instead, we are encouraged to be spiritual on our own time and individually.
But we are wired for connection. Connection to Self, other humans, Spirit, nature, and the unseen world around us. We need help interpreting our symbolic selves & holding the paradox that is life. We need spaces where we can ask questions freely, share vulnerably, and process openly. We need people and places that tend our souls and hold space while we do the deep, subtle work of our Spirit & Souls.
