Our new project of Connection, Collaboration & Conversation has gone Live! If you were unable to join us, a video is available for your viewing. Here is a look back at our First Gathering.
When you know there is something lingering in your mind…in your heart…do you listen more closely? Even if it isn’t clear yet, will you start jotting down notes? Will you email others you know are being called into this project (of sorts!) that doesn’t even have a name? Do I trust what may be called intuition and I call Spirit? My son Scott in Spirit to be specific. I listen. He is insistent. I must listen. This was important. His words flowed with the steps to take to move forward.
This beloved project began over a year ago. Through many conversations with those needing to be part of it, we knew we wanted others to join us in a bigger conversation. Yes, it would be monthly gatherings on Zoom. Participants and guests would share life experiences, fears, solutions, insights, and yes, the beautiful and unlikely growth, healing, and gifts gained through life changing trauma. It might be through the deaths of our loved ones, accidents, diagnoses, or the countless ways we are broken open. We could never have imagined a pandemic or isolating ourselves from family, friends, and others. Life shifts us…
In time, out of need or desperation we learn we benefit greatly by sharing, are comforted by those who have gone through incredible challenges as well, needing inspiration, support, hindsight, spiritual connections, and more. We know this. We have lived it…and still are as life does not ever stay the same. Diane’s son Matthew and Sara’s son Scott both died suddenly. Their lives were forever changed in an instant. If you are reading this, you know too…and because we all will benefit, needing to Live forward, Shifts Happen ~ Lighting the Way was born.
