Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

If for some reason you are unable to attend Rosh Hashanah services this year, due to illness or for some other reason, please feel free to listen and meditate with this podcast offering Thursday and Friday morning: roshhashanah2014:5775.mp3 When I speak of looking around the room at other members of the congregation or standing with them to hear the shofar, take time to look at the people you love, who care for you when they are near. If standing is not possible for you, recline in your bed long and straight, listen for sounds in your environment, birds, passing cars, the wind or rain that invite you to wake up and pay attention.
