Grow Spiritual Awareness
Dear <<First Name>>,
Imagine the Spirit—the Source of our being, God— at the center of your existence. We may not be aware of that Core, but it's always there.
We all have a unique potential for spiritual awareness of That of God Within. That's how we can inwardly "hear" the Holy and follow practical guidance in the here and now. It's the source of Quaker spirituality, a treasure we are happy to share.
In these times, our "ordinary awareness" may be jumbled in chaos or suffering. Yet when we can "listen" inwardly, in receptive openness, another kind of sensibility can rise. It's as if that of God within us is always knocking on an inner door (Rev 3: 20). Metaphors, terminology, and individuals ' experiences vary, but the reality remains.
The Way of the Spirit program aims to help people grow in spiritual awareness. It informs discernment, and brings healing and freedom to become all we're meant to be. It infuses relationships and community, and leads us into compassionate action to build God's Peaceable Realm.
If you long to grow in spiritual awareness, or know someone who does, explore the online mini-course below with Way of the Spirit. Apply soon. The first session is a month away.
May you know "an island of peace within,"
