Reflection for a Wet Winter Night

During these intentional, festive days, we can deepen relationships with one another and with the living Earth and awaken to unseen realities that secretly sustain the world. We can open into the realm of the soul with its wondrous capacity for imagination, understanding, and joy. Then it may be possible to touch into all that is Holy and good and eternal.

Little patches of reflection

Could being grateful and attentive to what we have help us to be fully present in the time we are in and actively inhabit the space where we live? 

Connection & Illumination

I am reminded continuously of the ways this forest, the network of people who love this place, and the events that happen here seem to exist for this very work of connecting us, drawing our attention to the abundance of life all around us.

 For something new is being born in us If we but let it. We stand at a new doorway, Awaiting that which comes… Daring to be human creatures, Vulnerable to the beauty of existence. Learning to love.

“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.”
