Beloved Friends & Family,

Many of us have been touched by Teresa of Avila who feels more like a soul sister who shares the challenges and joys of the human condition than some remote, perfected creature we could never hope to emulate.  We are finding that Teresa is as relevant today as she was 500 years ago when she traveled the rugged Spanish countryside in service of a radical reform movement rooted in a balance of contemplative practice and compassionate action.

Teresa was on fire with longing for the divine, who she related to as “Beloved,” and she was equally grounded and practical. “God,” Teresa famously said, “lives among the pots and pans.” Teresa was both wild and shrewd, a besotted mystic and a skilled activist. She was subversive, in the very best sense, stirring up the pot of organized religion and igniting the hearts of countless women (and a few daring men).

In these turbulent times, when business as usual no longer serves, but the alternatives are not yet clear, I invite you to join me on September 21 for a free ninety-minute webinar gathering that I hope will refill the cup of your heart.
