Feast of Epiphany

We dance the blessed paradox 
Of one more sacred spin around the sun
Pausing at the threshold
of yesterday’s yearnings
and tomorrow’s dreams.
~ Sharon Seyfarth Garner
 
We begin again, 
a new year and the season of Epiphany ~ 
a time of revealing, of new insights,
of magi on a long journey,
following a star.
 
Is there a word that has chosen you for the journey ahead?
Release your thinking and expectations.
Soften your grasp and surrender into a place of deep trust.
Listen for images that shimmer,
notice what is calling you to grow beyond the edges of your life.
Breathe and let go, allow a word to find you.
~ Christine Valters Paintner, Abbey of the Arts
 
You are invited to bring paper, pencils, crayons, markers, 
an open heart and a creative spirit.
You may wish to have a candle to light.
