“What in your life is calling you,
when all around is silenced,
the meeting adjourned … the lists set aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest…
what still pulls on your soul?” – Rumi
Prompted by the invitation in the Rumi quote, our Lent Email Retreat, delivered in two parts, invites us to “apply our hearts to wisdom” and awaken our senses to what pulls on our soul as we journey through time and space.
We risk letting go what supports our busyness and learn to listen in wilderness and garden. We learn to perceive with more of ourselves as we practice the Wisdom way in our routines, timetables, and the habits of our days. This changes us and transforms our world.
The Holy Week email series uses the wisdom of a short phrase by Elie Weisel to further our reflection.“And yet. These are my two favourite words, applicable to every situation, be it happy to bleak.” Practicing these words has the power to change everything.” – Elie Weisel
