We are all just walking each other home. ~ Ram Dass
Yesterday I came across the quote above and my heart Immediately said YES and my eyes became misty. Viscerally, I felt the loss of physical presence and the “come together” moments, large and small, that once made connection feel more solid.
What could feel more unlike coming together than living in an infectious pandemic during a volatile election year that has highlighted racial injustice and social inequities? How do we walk each other home right now? What might we do to stay engaged in a meaningful way while remaining awake and aware?
When envisioning this month’s Find Your Center Retreat, I intuited many would be in the midst of uncertainty, doomscrolling social media, caught somewhere between the need to know and the aversion to reading of more catastrophe. As a contrast, Natalie Akins and I designed a morning of connection, quiet contemplation and grounding practices to evoke both calm and awareness.
Find Your Center has been a focus of alleyCat from our inception, and there is no better time than NOW to root into that path. Come together In retreat and explore practices that center you personally and unite us collectively as we walk each other home.
Join Natalie and me, Saturday, October 24, 9:00-Noon. Come together, get centered and reenter life grounded, awake and aware.
