community

community. contribution. connection. creativity. caring.

I had the profound privilege of experiencing many of my core values listed above during this workshop I facilitated this past weekend.  Beautiful beings of love, authenticity & deep power – it was an amazing time & space made for connecting with intention, intuition & imagination.  We tapped into the shimmering Source through the creative visual medium of collage & the four hours went by in the brilliant blink of an eye.  At the end, the people present had learned something about themselves, the creative collage process & had the rich opportunity to connect on a soul level with others.

The passage I opened the workshop with is the passage I would like to share with you now:

A Community of Spirit
There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.
 

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Open your hands,
if you want to be held.

Sit down in this circle.

Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd’s love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Don’t accept consolations.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.

You moan, “She left me.” “He left me.”
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.

~Rumi

Much love, Jodi
