Give Yourself To Life with Gayan Macher

Dear Friends,
A beautiful opportunity in the new year....

GIVE YOURSELF TO LIFE
With Gayan Macher

Don't we want to love our life—to feel passion and connection while we are here? Don't we want to feel in harmony with our life and at ease in our own skin? But this is no easy matter. Life is hard, so often painful and disappointing. As we ripen we come to see that life is as it is, and if we are fortunate, we can also discover that it is a journey of the heart, a quest of love and faith...that a living heart, even within all life's limitations can become a womb from which Beauty is born, and that all along Existence has been singing love songs in our ear. This weekend, primarily through the Sufism of Hazrat Inayat Khan, we will explore teachings relevant to getting the hang of living. We will draw upon interior and interactive exercises, poetry and music, and the preciousness of spiritual friendship.
