Doorways to Divinity:

Meditations on Pausing, Poetry, and Presence

Even though the things we do in this physical world 
may continually misrepresent who we are, 
let's never forget for even one second 
that the divine spark that is God 
resides within each one of us. 

And after all has been said and done, 
you'll find out that you've been 
walking with your own Beloved 
for many, many eons. 

And one of your great realizations 
will be that, at all times, 
everything was absolutely perfect 
within you.

How do we enter into communion with the Beloved? Always the answer has been to go within. Yet, how? To assist us on our inner journey, meditation and sacred writings have always been a doorway to the preciousness of the spiritual heart. 

In this class, we will look at the works and poetry of ancient and modern masters that lead us into who we truly are. We will spend time in silence absorbing their meaning, and we'll be traveling the inner dimensions that are opened for us through the power of their words and vibration. 

We will also explore key practices to find joy in our daily lives as well as experience a centering practice in accord with Jesus' directive to "pray in secret." The Gnostic Gospels of Thomas and Mary Magdalene will also be explored for clues on how we can live a Christ-centered life. 

This class offers plenty of space to share revelations and insights from class participants. Above all, each class is an exercise in letting go of our doing and entering into Being. Please join us on this sacred journey. 

All classes are recorded and can be accessed live, or viewed later at your own pace for at least a year after you register. (Recordings can be accessed any time to fit your schedule).  

Live Class Dates: Monday, October 2, 16, 23, 30; November 13, 20, 27; December 11, 2023  

Prerequisites: None - Open to all 

The true master 
realizes the opportunity 
of oneness with God 
in every experience, 
in every human being, 
and in every event. 
We hope to see you there!
