Will you please consider joining me on January 15th at 4:00PM (PST) for an online FB LIVE opening ceremony to kick off the amazing Winter Feast for the Soul? The Winter Feast for the Soul is an annual 40-day worldwide spiritual practice period observed from January 15 through February 23. It is a time when people all over the world recommit to or begin a personal spiritual practice. During the Winter Feast for the Soul, all religions and spiritual paths toward realizing the Creator are honored. The organization was inspired by the words of the 13th Century Persian poet Jelaladdin Rumi, who wrote “What nine months does for the embryo, 40 early mornings will do for your growing awareness.” You do not need to be an expert meditator or a super spiritual person. All you need to do is be willing to commit to the 40 days and see where it takes you.
Each year there is a new teaching faculty that includes spiritual leaders from various traditions, among them, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Sufism, Vedanta, yoga and other modern spiritual and humanist traditions.
There’s enough pain, conflict and suffering in the world. Here’s an opportunity to let go of our differences and join together to focus on what connects us as one single humanity. Let’s come together to do our part to cultivate a world of love, peace, compassion and truth.
To kick this amazing event off I will be hosting a free Facebook Live event on January 15th at 4:00PM (PST). There is something so powerful about doing this as a group.
