You, yes especially you, who seek, yearn, and long for Spirit, welcome!
You are welcome, you non-binary folks who walk the edges of gender and are seeking deeper spiritual connection.
You are welcome, you fellow freaks who are misunderstood again and again, and who nevertheless steadfastly long for intimate relationship with the Divine.
You are welcome, you people who have never had routine, but who want to know what it feels like to know Spirit, to partner with the Energy of Life, maybe even to have a spiritual practice.
You are welcome, trans siblings longing for spiritual support in a world that so often, so repeatedly rejects and wounds you.
You are welcome, my other queer and neurodivergent siblings who feel betrayed by religion and spirituality, but cannot escape the burning desire in your own heart for communion with the Divine.
You are welcome, you who yearn deeply to know and love the Mystery that is within and beyond you, even though you cannot explain what that might mean.
I behold and admire you. I see your beauty and your brilliance.
I can help you explore your desires for depth and meaning, support, care, and help along the way of your own path.
I offer you the chance to find your own deep desire, meaning, purpose, and wisdom, even and especially when religious contexts have refused you exactly these things.
I offer you the time and space to explore discernment, wisdom from various spiritual traditions of the world, and ways of developing a spirituality of the seasons. Seasons of a year. Seasons of a project. Seasons of a life.
If you are intrigued by what you read here, I invite you to visit my blog page and read more about what I do, or simply sign up in the box to the left for Reflections, a weekly contemplative love letter.
You are welcome.
