The 5 Invitations are:

Don’t Wait

Welcome Everything, Push Away Nothing

Bring Your Whole Self to the Experience

Find a Place of Rest in the Middle of Things

Cultivate Don’t Know Mind


We will meet weekly for 4 sessions to discuss all the invitations. No pressure - you can read at your own pace -  all welcome - in person and on Zoom.  The book is available on Amazon or 

 This workshop will be hybrid. Participate in person (for those who are vaccinated) or attend live-stream via Zoom.
