Solitude and Community : essential paradoxical wisdom for this tumultuous season

A SoulFire program - a Saturday on-line gathering with a focus on shaping intentional, local community

“The doorway to our next step of growth is always behind the urgency of now.”

from Mark Nepo in The Book of Awakening

As humans we are often lost in a sea of separation from our true place in inter-connected community – both within our own beings and as a living part of Earth’s wisdom. To individuate and know ourselves as unique presence on this globe can only be done through relationships with each other and the many facets of the more-than-human world. We are living in urgent times that seem impossible to navigate emotionally, materially, and spiritually. To move forward in healing from this painful separation, new communities of belonging are being dreamed into being, to navigate our next embodied steps of growth together. You are called to come into the circle with us and contemplate your unique place!

This Saturday on-line program guided by Carol Kortsch and Cat Greenstreet will offer inspiration and conversation about our own joys and struggles to break into fresh collective forms as Courage & Renewal facilitators and as soul guides in our communities of living and learning.

  • How do we grow deep soulful roots as a community-in-process, always unfinished, always in movement. Never quite ‘arriving’ or ‘getting there’!
  • How do we learn our intentional flow as individual ‘solitudes’ within the force and flow of greater community around us?
  • How do we slow down and listen to our souls experience the hidden aspects of our engrained separation from the spiritual, from the way Mystery speaks to each of us?

Sunday March 3 – an optional, hosted in-person gathering may be available in your area (morning coffee/afternoon tea/or late afternoon happy hour!)  Or, for those who cannot meet in person – a follow-up, virtual village conversation may be offered Sun 11am – 12.30pm. Exact details will be provided once you sign up for the Saturday program.

PLUS – a nature-based reflection as an invitation to solitude and community will be offered as a segue between the two days, before we gather again in small groups.

You will be sent the zoom link and further details once you have registered.

We each have the fiery birthright capacity to be elders-in-training to serve as channels of life energy on behalf of the greater village we live in.

We are aware of the urgent need to activate Earth’s natural healing energies in many forms – individually and collectively. Where our human systems are breaking down, we dream for new ways for sustainability as psycho-spiritual and embodied humanity – as living, networking members of Mother Earth.

Consider your engagement in this as an emergent form of Earth’s longing for healing and wholeness – a fresh direction of sparking SoulFire in your own life and community!

“By doing one learns; with study one refines; through dreaming one creates; in loving one fulfills. Such is the secret for tending to the perennial garden of our soul.”
