Processes and Small Circles

“I pin my hopes to quiet processes and small circles, in which vital and transforming events take place.” // Rufus Jones


Grace is the territory between the troubling dark and the yearned for light, adhering them both, filling the essential space between them.

On this Threshold Singing

While our age feels edgy, dark, and dangerous, it is also a potent time, full of possibility; and it is in these times when we are given exactly the songs we need: deep songs of the earth, ancient songs that began long ago, and new songs rising out of our hearts.

 Today #rollingridgestudyretreat was brimming with volunteer work, wonderful food and lively conversations. We started the day with a blessing from the Irish  poet, John O'Donohue: "​May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those / Who work with you and to those who see and receive your work." .. .. Thanks so very much to everyone who joined us for spring cleaning in the Retreat House, prepping the garden beds and removing invasive plants in the woods.

“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”


-John O’Donohue
