Were you guided here? Wonder what’s next? Were you born to honor soul and to guide others to the same? Interested in spiritual intelligence and how to speak to your visions beyond the psychological model? Are you called to honor your ancestral DNA with all of its horrors and hopes? In search of the confidence to serve as an artist, healer, or spirit worker? Challenged by some gift that Spirit wants you to incorporate?
In this Hidden Monastery, we play with the Art of Being Ensouled, claim body wisdom as integral to Life’s mystery, seek to speak plainly and humbly about injustice, and restore imagination and power to realize health in all relations.
Some of us are born mystics. Grace is our life’s work. But it’s not an easy vocation. We struggle with being seen and even how to practice.
I know how tricky it is to find spaces that embrace our spiritual hunger to dance, play, pray, think, serve, enjoy humor, be down to earth and always open our hearts in a community. Because of this, we are often hidden. Hidden can be just a word for “too big to be seen.” Great Love is un-pin-downable. You know you are connected to everything. Yet, often we seem to play just to the left or right of visibility. Here is my prayer for you as one in the hidden monastery.
To bring body AND soul fully online and into the world we need art, contemplation, the technologies of divine communication, wise companionship and today, one more needed thing, community. May we who tend this space serve you.
I’m in this dance for keeps. Learn about my journey in Chasing the Dance of Life. To stay lightly or deeply connected I welcome your subscription.Or Email me directly here. Many blessings.
Learn the art of ensoulment: your purpose, gifts and path!
Your life purpose is working even if you don’t know it! Purpose is keyed into our deep self or soul. Miriam Webster defines soul as “that which is believed to give life, a person’s deeply felt moral and emotional nature, the ability of a person to feel kindness and sympathy… Read more
In my twenties, the great fear was a nuclear bomb. Humanity’s capacity to blow ourselves up assaulted basic confidence in life. A Hollywood movie was making the rounds, depicting what a nuclear holocaust would be like. I didn’t want to watch it alone. Driving down the freeway to view it with a… Read more
“Grant that I may give thee choice gifts, three lighted and dazzling torches– my spirit, my body, and my soul.” Maronite prayer Times are not easy. To be in my body can be excruciating when the land, our neighbors, beloved beings and sometimes we are under attack, out of balance,… Read more

The Shimmering I don’t know how it happens. And I don’t know why. But when we dance angels rise with an unforeseen eloquence that’s normally hidden behind dishes, dots, screens, and scrapes. Who will make the angels a chapel? Who will say yes to body and soul, to flower and stem bending,… Read more

Words are only one way to say thank you. Each being naturally gives back energy, love, and appreciation for life. Play, the unconditional big bodied YES to dancing with the elements, is creation’s best thanks ever. All species appear to have some kind of play capacity. Snails? Some species can’t… Read more
An old story is told about the beginning of time. The universe was in the process of being created, and not everything was yet in order or fully functioning. Before the universe could be totally engaged, the Creator had one final task to complete. To help me complete this task,… Read more
