Late Winter Part 3: Love as the Practice of Attention

Welcome to the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons Late Winter 2020 | MEDITATIONS ON LOVE Can I be vulnerable and admit some embarrassing behavior? Last year—when I wrote the sermon I'm sharing with you today—I had to re-up my CPR certification. I was late to the class and sat down in the only available seat, quickly realizing I was next to the “strange” guy. It’d been the empty seat for a reason. My first reactions were judgement and envy.

Late Winter Part 2: Love & Sacrifice

Welcome to the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons Late Winter 2020 | MEDITATIONS ON LOVE Love is a word that means SO many different things in our culture.

the Ground of all Being (fall equinox part 1)

Welcome to the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons. September 23, 2018 Yesterday—in the northern hemisphere where I live—was the fall equinox and it was my full intention to offer you a sermon in celebration of the season change. But when I sat down to write, something else entirely poured out of me... The fall equinox feels like a very earthy thing and apparently something inside of me needed to root us on the ground before I could actually begin writing about the season change. So you're getting the fall equinox sermon in two parts over two weeks. And similarly, as I worked ... (Continue Reading)
