November Retreat Canceled

October 21, 2013
If you've been following this blog you may know we've been trying to organise a retreat weekend for a couple of years now. We've had to cancel our most recent attempt, the one scheduled for November, because on more detailed planning we realised that a spiritual weekend like this can be intense. By intense I mean the silence of meditation and the themes of the retreat can bring up emotional issues, and that's ok and good if you know how to handle these things, but we thought it best that an e...

Asking for Help

April 18, 2013
On our Rock and Spiritual Experience FB page I posted a musing:

Temper Trap - Trembling Hands: Asking for Help

At first I thought this was a sad song, "I buried my head so deep in my hands, all around me was dark." But as I listened to in more, sometimes singing with it (hitting the notes occasionally), I found it cleared my mind and opened... more
