Dear T.R.I.B.E. Friends,
Well, it appears that I am just recovering from a whirlwind week in Times Square at the TANK NY culminating in a really wonderful evening on November 16th. If you missed it, you missed a lot. Rather than try to recap, we will be posting photos on the website and photos are already on our Facebook page.
THANK YOU to every person who had a part in making that evening a truly wonderful one.
And thank you all for accompanying me on this journey into what it is that makes us alive. The heart of the artist in each of us is the place where we and Spirit Co-create. This is your gift to the world, and only you can be you. The core of the work I am committed to doing is to create a context for each person to listen to their own unique gift…cultivate and share it to make our world a better, more loving, more humane place for all people.
Every person needs a tribe, where they can contribute, receive, teach, learn, inspire and be inspired. My attempt to find the place where I can be of maximum service led me to each of you, and I am immeasurably grateful for that.
As the year of 2014 winds down, I am going to be making some changes to the newsletter, and to the idea of T.R.I.B.E.
Sending you love and blessings from the left coast,
Dear T.R.I.B.E. Friends,
On the evening of November 16th some of the most talented spiritual journeyers/artists I know will be joining me at The TANK NYC from 7-9 pm. And yes that includes YOU!
The TANK is located right off Times Square at 151 W. 46th St.
I went into ministry at a time when the entire thought form of “church” was shifting, and after almost fifteen years of pastoral ministry, I needed a break to get some distance about my own Call, to assimilate the many lessons and to listen.
The idea of a sabbatical- taking a year off every seven years to study and assimilate, to write, travel and reflect – really makes sense. I was due two sabbaticals!
There is also a biblical tradition of choosing a desert experience, (or recognizing that you are in one), and letting it pull the toxins out, inviting the stillness to attune your inner ear to the subtle life all around, and to see the astonishing desert flowers popping up in brilliant red or purple.
Out of the desert comes simplicity and clarity. Out of the desert, a path emerges.
Red flowers, purple blooms, Kirtan, conversation, catching up, sharing a meal.
See you on the 16th!
Come with questions, with hopes and dreams.
And if you want to make a sweet potato pie that would be great too!!
Suggested donation $20.
See you soon,
