Heart of Awe
Awe arises when we witness kindness, courage, birth and death, and when we wander in the wondrous body of nature with our sense perceiving open and fresh.
Innate instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring is a resource for the mind, body, and spirit.
We are in the transformative emotion of awe when we commune in conjunctive resonance with the movements of living waters, alive colors of the green earth, and dwell in bird song of the ever-changing sky.
Awe is the direct experience of being touched. We feel awe in our bodies, our hearts open, and our minds expand.
To stand before the great forces of creation and destruction inherent in wild nature also awakens awe. In ancient times the word AWE was defined as fear and great reverence – worthy of respect.
What We Will Do
Enter the sacred gateway of the body in primordial sounding and fluid movement. Allow time to slow, to gestate, and to perceive the creative animating forces that move in nature and in consciousness.
We vitally need unknown spaces to sit in awareness, in the inner and outer caverns of nature’s imagination, and for concentrated inner heart work. Enliven a potent communion and tend the interconnectedness of your soul and the starry universe.
Our time together is a place of refuge, to be with the yearnings of life. We will build resources and awaken courage to simmer in the tension, in the paradox of awe and what is awful. Not-knowing “the way”, we enter the generative mysteries, to discover ancient yet fresh innovative “ways” to meet current challenges.
