look at me! two postings in as many days. it's obviously getting to summer vacation. tomorrow is the last day (!!!!!). i'm planning many wonderful things for my summer - making extra money by working - not teaching, rather, observing new teaching fellows teach in summer school. i'm going to use the money to pay off the little bit of debt i have and go to san francisco on vacation in august.
this weekend i'm going to the community of the holy spirit at their house in brewster, ny. this is where the true hippies who became nuns live. i'm going to spend sat. night at their full moon fireside - explanation below.
i hope to spend more time with the sisters this year, esp. as i'll be fostering one or two children soon. i'll need all the spiritual resources i can get!
"Full Moon Firesides" at St. Cuthbert's are relaxed, focused evenings of conversation. Each evening is held on the night of the full moon for that month, which not only recognizes the moon's phase changes, but also allows the meeting to occur on a different day of the week. We hope this enables more people to join us.
We begin with a half hour of drumming, then a half-hour of meditation, followed by an evening where we can learn together what it means to be a powerful, responsible species on Earth. We'll explore some of Brian Swimme's work, throw in some cooking fun in the kitchen, and generally enjoy being "bio-spiritual creatures" together!
Join us for any part of any evening — or come to everything! If you're interested, e-mail us to have your name added to our e-mail notification list.
