Naomi Shihab Nye Reads "Kindness"

March 18, 2016

Naomi was a presenter at Wisdom Ways in March 2016. 

Breathing into the Whole of Life

Thursday 5/26
10:00 - 11:30 am

We will use our bodies and the simple acts of breathing, drinking, eating, and lighting a candle as gateways to connecting with and praying through air, water, earth and fire.

5/26 - Fire
The world needs your inner lamp to be burning brightly! Our individual sparks can be too easily extinguished if they are not connected to the light of the Divine. A candle flame will be our entry point into meditations on the sun, the Big Bang, and the light of love within all things. Come explore how you can pray through fire.

New addition for June!
