Shine Through All Time – An Image for the Equinox

By Deborah Koff-Chapin One of the joys of my creative life is to share my Touch Drawings online for the solstice and equinox, and at other moments that I feel call forth an image. Because I have an enormous archive to choose from, it is a somewhat intuitive process to choose an image that feels aligned with Read more…

Incarnational Spirituality in Translation  new!

   Incarnational Spirituality embraces the understanding that we have a spiritual presence and inner resources that emerge from the very act of incarnation itself, not in spite of it or from some place beyond it.  Incarnational Spirituality sees the world as inherently a spiritual domain with roots in the sacred–in the ground of all being–as fully developed and accessible as the spiritual roots we may find in any non-physical realm of being.

We have not come from some spiritual domain to the earth.  Rather, we have enlarged the spiritual domains in which we live and function to include the one we call the earth.  We have not left spirit or the sacred; we have enlarged our repertoire of how we can experience and express our spirituality and our sacredness. – David Spangler
