Early Winter Part 4: Connecting with Divine Mystery

Welcome to the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons JOIN US for the online Yoga Church Sunday Gathering. Click here for the details. I've got a great sermon for you this morning. It's the last one in our early winter series (I've loved this group of sermons). As you know we've been exploring Divine Mystery. We started with what it means to be a seeker, then we explored yearning, last week we dove into the practice of finding refuge, and this week we're talking about connection. Divine Mystery is, well, mysterious. But ... (Continue Reading)

Early Winter Part 2: Yearning

Welcome to the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons JOIN US for the online Yoga Church Sunday Gathering. Click here for the details. When you listen deeply inward, what do you yearn for? Yearning is a feeling.

Early Autumn Part 4: Who Am I Becoming?

We become who we practice becoming. This idea has become a refrain that I repeat over and over and over again. Yoga teacher and author Donna Farhi says that we can only judge the effectiveness of our practice based on who we're becoming through it. If we want to live a life of intention, meaning, and mystery, we must pause and regularly ask ourselves: Who am I becoming? This question is at the heart of our sermon this week. It's the final sermon in the early autumn series and it's an important one. It explores hope and justice ... (Continue Reading)
