Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 12-24-19


Here we are at the end of another year.  Who can believe we are stepping into 2020?  In the next 9 days we will celebrate New Year’s Eve; Christmas Day; and Burning Bowl/The New Year.  As we traverse these days may you experience the rebirth of the light/the Christ Nature. 

Meister Eckhart wrote of the mystical nature of the experience: 

“Here is the birthplace of the light.

Here we are both birthing the light — and

We are the light being birthed.

God giving birth to God.”


As with any birth let us:

  • celebrate our divine identity
  • nurture our newborn awareness
  • kindle our divine spark
  • give room for our light to shine

I hope you will join us for Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of “light in the darkness.”  I also hope you will join us for the Burning Bowl Service on Sunday morning December 29.  The amazing Vic Sorrell will be with us to share special music. 


The time is now – our purpose is clear.

Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 12/05/19


What would the world look like if we gave peace more of a chance?  What kind of world could we create if we were committed to peaceful thoughts, peaceful emotions and peace filled actions that created more and more peace? Sound impossible?  I find some days are easier than others. 

On Wednesday Becky Astarita and myself were at Columbia State running a peace circle, and what happens for me during those experiences is peace.  Isn’t it interesting that what we focus on grows?  Thoughts in mind reproduce after their kind.  (Where have we heard that?) 

This Sunday will be the 2nd Sunday of Advent and our focus will be on peace as we discuss, how to stay peaceful when the flying monkeys swoop in.  Metaphysically the flying monkeys are our thoughts and when we allow those negative ones to continue to swoop in without clearing our consciousness our peaceful experiences are stolen. 

Join us as we affirm:  “I am claiming peace and living from its gifts”.  The awesome Carol Grace Anderson will be sharing amazing music for our journey together through a desert of flying monkeys.    

“I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name” – just maybe it’s name is Faith, Peace, Love, and Joy.
