"Even though we may forget our vows 10,000 times, come, come whoever you are... begin again and again." -Rumi

Our human nature is to forget, to fall asleep, to fall off the wagon. How do we create meaningful pathways of remembrance: of God, of our values and dreams, of intent and heart? In days of old, spiritual leaders were known to travel with triptychs and other religious items that would anchor and remind them of what they hold dear.

In the beloved container of the sangha, this creative, spiritual workshop will allow you to:

  • Create your own sweet, portable altar small enough to carry in your backpack or purse, or to take on travel abroad
  • Design your altar in community as a lovely practice of deep inner listening as we weave in ritual, inner work, and creative processes
