The Way of the River is Here For You

The Way of the River is Here For You

Dear ones –

I want to say, “I have not been well,” but I am as well in body as I ever am. So do not panic when I say that!

I have had another time of difficulties of the mind. And, combined with the stresses the pandemic is putting on all of us, even those of us who are well, it has not been an easy time. But I am doing much, much better, and so I find I am able to write to you. Feeling called to invite you to lean in, to rest, to reach out and receive my reaching out to you.

I have missed you!

And really, this is going to be a very short missive because I want you to hear me very clearly, and yes, I am using the microphone (but gently):

We need one another now.

We need one another now.

We need one another now.

Got it?

So what does that mean for those of us at The Way of the River. First of all, it means that if you use Facebook, I strongly (and cordially) invite you to join us there at The Way of the River Community. We share together, ask for help and support, and generally just stay in touch. It’s a good thing.

Furthermore, I have small groups opening in April and May – one for queer/neurodivergent folks (those having ADHD and PTSD, as well as autistic people) and one that is non-identity-based, but still welcoming of people who are neurodivergent. You’ll hear more about that tomorrow – watch your inbox!

I’m also really inviting you to consider individual spiritual accompaniment and to schedule an appointment just to have a free consultation. It’s strange, strange times, friends, and having the anchor of a once-a-month check-in time can make all the difference in the world between feeling isolated and feeling deeply connected to yourself and others.

So I’ll keep this short and sweet, because I want to include a week video this week!

Blessings and love, as ever –
