Being With The Divine In These Times Of Uncertainty
New to Contemplation?
In the spaciousness created within the Eremos community, you are gently invited to behold the Mystery of God. As you rest in moments of silence in community, burdens are lightened, clarity comes, and compassion for yourself and others is reawakened.
Whether you choose to accept our invitation via spiritual direction, a workshop, retreat or monthly on-going small group, you are welcome here.
Prayer for the West…
Beloved Creator, thank you for surrounding everyone affected by the fires in the West with love and compassion, guiding them – from humans to the smallest insect – to safe shelter and nourishment.
May you keep safe and bless every fire fighter, government official, caregiver, and other service providers for their efforts to stop the fires, lead people to safety, and provide comfort to those displaced.
May your loving presence be felt by those who have lost loved ones and bring them comfort and peace.
May loving kindness and compassionate assistance beyond our imagining be born out of the ashes to help those in need.
In These Uncertain Times May We Uplift Each Other Virtually
As a contemplative community, we know the soul nourishment that occurs when we drop out of our heads into the silence of our hearts to be with God, the Divine, the Holy One, or whatever name you call Source. We invite you to pause often to take a deep breath, drop into the silence, and find the peace that passes all understanding.
We are a community. We hold you, your loved ones, and our world in our collective hearts and prayers. And, we hold the vision and space for healing to come and for the world to emerge stronger and more united for the challenges facing us now. Thank you for joining us in this vision.
May we all come together virtually to offer hope and healing to all hearts, minds, and souls. Thank you for being part of our contemplative community without walls.
