40 Days of Spiritual Practice: Root, Rest & Rejuvenate to Accelerate

January 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm February 23, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

Who: Nine brilliant and gifted spiritual practitioners will lead us in a series of practice circles for 40 days at the start of 2021. Resonance Network participants who received the invitation are invited to join these circles, and are also welcome to invite chosen beloveds to join us.

What: These nine circles will delve into themes of: deep listening, radical self care, breath work, radical relationships, liberated parenting, finding your voice…and more. (Learn more about each practice circle below.)

We invite you to choose the circle that resonates most and join us.

When: Practice circles will convene in early January, and will gather, as a group, at least four times during the following 40 days. The anticipated gathering dates and times are listed under each spiritual practice offering below. Additionally, there will be opportunities for communication and engagement between gatherings for the group.  

Where: All circles will meet remotely–connection details and meeting schedule will be shared by each individual circle facilitator upon registration.

Registration deadline: Jan 5, 2022

A gentle reminder: we ask you to interrupt the urge to register for multiple circles–and instead, to give your full commitment to one practice circle during this 40-day period. This is an opportunity to challenge your growing edge, and to stretch your spiritual depth–it deserves your full presence.

Slowing Down to Accelerate Spirit Growth: Disciplined Radical Self-Care as Fertile Ground for Spiritual Practice | Offered by Kelly Miller & Malia Collins

Breath, Spirit, Flow: Breathing and Meditative Practices Inspired by Zen | Offered by Ed Heisler
Breath is connection. Breath is power. Breath is flow. Breath can nourish life and teach us about living at the same time.

Through the Lens a Connection to Spirit | Offered by Kelli Risitano
