This month we've talked about many aspects of creativity. It is at the heart of who we are and is not defined by artistic ability. As we bring the conversation to a close, Rev. Tara and musician Jewel Shield offer an opportunity to touch into your inner artist.
With music, with silence, with spoken word and practice, this service will take us within to where our artist always is present. No special skills or talents are required, simply show up and be present. The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10; the music will begin a bit earlier. All are welcome.

The tulip does not turn to the rosebush in the flowerbed next to it and suddenly feel inadequate because of its simple petals and slender stalk. It embraces the creation of beauty that it is and is meant to be.
We humans tend to fall prey to our comparing mind and judge ourselves for being, having, or expressing as less than, rather than simply embracing the unique creative expression that we are. Join Practitioner Megan Rooney to explore, embrace and celebrate our Divine creative nature!
The service begins at 7 pm in Room 10, North Wing. All are welcome

“We allow the ongoing activity of Spirit into our hearts, minds and activities to bring forth new forms and expressions to inspire and guide”
Here's what Practitioner Maggie has to say about this Sunday's evening service: “If I couldn’t create, I might as well be dead”. My son said this to me one day and at the time, I don’t know that I understood the depth of what he was saying about himself. I have since revealed the truth of this in my own life. The absolute joy of accessing the wealth of ideas God is always and forever supplying and once in a while capturing it and bringing it to form. Glory Hallelujah. The realization of the infinite creativity of Spirit is truly a gift that keeps on giving. Let us always revel in it.
Music: Maggie's intuitive and creative friend, Andy Graham, brings his musical expression to us this Sunday. He and other artists are Maggie's mentors for witnessing her own intuitive nature and bringing forth what is inside.

Our "textbook", when first published, was titled The Science of Mind and Spirit. Although there is much focus on our thoughts and beliefs, the realms of intuition and insight, more commonly thought of as heart-centered, are also important. Sunday, Rev. Tara speaks to the rest of the story, drawing from our book of the month Love and Law, as well as other materials. Please join us this Sunday evening at 7 pm for learning and practicing the wisdom of the heart.
All are welcome to this spiritual community service, in Room 10, North Wing, at the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa.
