Wednesdays

  • 9:00 AM Pacific Time US
    This 60-minute sacred space is dedicated to reading the ACOL text together as a group. Throughout our connection, organic dialogues occur. These conversations are typically a result of someone posing a question about the reading, a thought that the reading brought to mind, or a story from their own lives that exemplifies what we have read. As facilitators, our intention is to hold the container and be led by Spirit to contribute, rather than leading the discussion.
