Gloria Karpinski's Center Circle

Gloria Karpinski's Center Circle

Once awake and committed, we become caretakers of the new vision for our Earth. In order to stay poised in the chaos, we need to be both still and skilled. That vision asks us to become practical mystics whose inspirations are from the heavens and whose feet are on the ground. All of the classes, workshops and intensives are designed to support that balance.
— Gloria


Years ago, I took my granddaughter, then 18 months old, into my meditation garden. I turned around to see her sitting in front of an angel statue, answering the angel’s kiss with one of her own. Fortunately, I had my cell phone in hand and caught the moment.

With love,

From my heart to yours,



Poet Mary Oliver encouraged us to “walk slowly and bow often” lest we miss the sacredness that is alive and speaking to us in all of nature. She died this past week. I bow to her in gratitude for the rich legacy she has left for us. Personally I have shared her poems in many, many classes. After you read her work you can almost hear her say, “Now go outside and pay attention.”

Rose: Late Summer

If I had another life
I would want to spend it on some
unstinting happiness.

I would be a fox or a tree
full of waving branches
I wouldn’t mind being a rose
in a field of roses.
Fear has not occurred to them, nor ambition,
Reason they have not yet thought of.
Neither do they ask how long they must be roses, and then what,
or any other foolish question

~ by Mary Oliver
