Has love and suffering transformed your life?
- Where are You on this Spiritual Journey called Life?
- What have you realized deep in the core of your heart that is beautifully Good and True?
- What “Good News” are you willing to shout or whisper to those willing to listen?
- What is your Gospel?
At its root, ‘gospel’ translates as ‘good news’ or ‘good story’.
It’s a message that you genuinely want to hear, a recognition of a different, more meaningful, relationship to Life. It’s a sacred and growing heart shared with all of life.
If you have ever experienced a sense that existence is weirdly amazing, then you have had a WOW moment. These moments provide a crack in our surface perceptions that bring forth a sense of Wonder, Openness, and Willingness to explore further.
From realizing the sublime loving preciousness of each moment to acknowledging the inescapable reality of suffering, Life provides us a paradox of experiences. Both the joyous and the painful may shake us from our steady routine, awaken us to the possibility of divine reality, and start a deeper search for meaning.
The Gospel of WOW: The Greatest Hits Volume One is a fun and open way to pause from our routine and our searching, take stock in what we already know in our hearts, and attempt to crystalize our deepest life realizations.
The Gospel of WOW uses core universal themes found in the Judeo-Christian tradition as seeds for a deeper exploration of these life-changing perspectives. No religious affiliation is required. Only a curious heart and open mind are needed.
The WOW sessions will not be lectures.
Instead, we will approach the key passages through a variety of engaged methods including, but not limited to, contemplative reading, guided meditation, personal reflection,and collective discussion.
To make the gatherings a bit of fun, each workshop will have a few 1970’s songs to accompany its theme. So you may need to bring back some “Joy to the World” memories of your youth.
In the meantime, simply, ask yourself each day - “What makes me go WOW?”
Hope to see you soon.
