The Gift of Our Longings
Our longings make us feel needy and vulnerable. Surprisingly, though, they contain seeds of transformation and can be an entry door to the sacred.
During this service you’ll be invited to get in touch with the vulnerability of your yearnings, cravings, desires, and perhaps your grief. For what purpose? To discover in the restlessness of your heart, what matters most, what you love, and what brings you joy. Let your longings draw you forth so that you may live in soul-rooted belonging and service to the world.
