A purifying ally

At times, a broken heart will appear as a hidden wisdom-guide, and you will be asked to place the shattered pieces on the altar in front of you.

The invitation of the broken is rarely sweet and peaceful, but always reorganizing and whole. “The freedom you are longing for is found inside me,” it says, “not in sending me away.”

An ancient companion has arrived as a purifying ally from beyond, seeking just a moment of your care, your listening, interest, and holding.

It has come to walk with you on a blessed journey. With something to disclose, to offer, that is not accessible during times when everything is resolved and put together.

Befriending Yourself - you are invited to join me and my friend Jeff Foster at our new online membership site at the intersection of spirituality, meditation, and depth psychology. Video-based teachings, live meditations, question-and-answer videos, and a moderated online support community. 

The next retreat - The Deep Rest Retreat: Slowing Down and Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times - September 4-9 at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado - registration open 

My most recent book – The Path Is Everywhere: Uncovering the Jewels Hidden Within You – is available in both paperback and Kindle editions. 

My next book, A Healing Space: Befriending Yourself in Difficult Times, will be published by Sounds True in 2020.
