In the past five weeks, my father died and my son got married. I had the blessing to sit by Papa's side with my mom and sisters for 10 days as he made his transition at the age of 91. As he was laid to rest, I was awake to both my deep grief at losing him and profound gratitude that I felt complete with my dad, that I was able to tell and show both my parents how much I love them and how deeply I appreciate who they are. I knew my dad loved me beyond words. Each passing day I become more aware of how his love continues to be actively present in my life, how his spirit is still guiding and protecting the people he loves. I am more aware than ever of the spiritual power available in the liminal spaces, the spaces between.

Coming to us direct from a six-week concert tour in Paris, they will perform their profoundly moving narrative concert weaving ancient texts with haunting global rhythms in service of balancing the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine. The Dream [...]

By Kathe Schaaf and Kay Lindahl In three months, women will gather for the third Women’s March. On January 19, the main march will be held once again in Washington D.C. while cities around the country and the world will join the energy with marches of their own. In the first march on January 21, 2017 at least 3 million women worldwide took part, with some estimates as high as 5 million.
