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.

Intensive: Creativity and Spirit (The only Intensive for 2017!)

Thu, Sep 28, 2017 - Sun, Oct 1, 2017 - St Francis Prayer Center

    Our capacity to create is infinite--and impossible to avoid.  it never stops as long as we speak, desire, think or act.  We take our aspirations and thoughts like cups to the river of life, and it fills them up without questions, whether our cups be stingy little realities or big, bold dreams.

Shared Thoughts - Poise In Chaos

We are being called by the soul of our beloved planet to bring all of our love, insight and training to this moment. We must be poised in chaos – sending forth healing energy for the pain of transitions, holding visions while the shadows in our civilization are brutally revealed, naked before our eyes. There is no way to look away.

Poise in the midst of madness requires us to find inner peace and then share all of our resources, building anew from a foundation of peace. We must pray without ceasing, the continuous prayer that keeps us in present moment, present with suffering and needs of all of our brothers and sisters, also holding that sacred peace for our four-legged relatives as well as our winged, finned and green growing ones.
