Gather. A day of refuge
November 3, 2020

Election Day is coming. There will still be virtual/home school classes to support our children through. There will be hours of work. There will be meals to plan and so so much more of ordinary life happening within this important and extraordinary moment. Perhaps you have or will take the day off. There will be feelings, waves and waves of feeling.
There will be minutes of hope and despair, hours of inhaling, times of long deep exhales.

So much has happened leading up to this moment and more is to come.
I have never felt like I needed a heartful, spiritual, and communal plan for election day in the U.S.A. This year, I know that I do. Perhaps you are feeling the same way to? How will you meet the day?  And the days after, no matter the outcome?

I plan to meet the day with presence. I plan to gather and remember my Ancestors. I plan to gather courage. I plan to gather rest.

Let us Gather and co-create a day of refuge.

Gather: A day of refuge is a virtual space for light workers, spiritual warriors, and those committed to equity, justice, and awakening to meet the day with a sense of presence as well as be in community, be held, and supported.
