Enriching Our Spiritual Journey Through the Embrace of Earthly Delights

The audio recording of this teleclass is now available!

See if this resonates with you. You’ve just arrived at a 3-day spiritual retreat. You’ve been looking forward to it for weeks. Finally, the time has come and you’re excited about connecting with like-minded people.

You enter a large room where everyone one is signing in and picking up nametags. As you stand in line to be checked in, you look around and notice how many people are dressed in simple clothes, wearing flat, comfortable shoes. You look down at your Manolo Blahniks, delighting in how perfectly they match your new outfit.

Slowly your delight turns to doubt as you look around the room once more. No one else is dressed the way you are. The women aren’t wearing make-up yet they glow. In fact, they look magnificent – serene and peaceful.

You begin to wonder, “Do I have to give up the things I love to deepen my sense of peace? Or, can I continue to walk my spiritual path in my fabulous shoes?”

If you have asked yourself similar questions or wondered how to live a spiritually conscious life in a material world, please listen in as we explore how our earthly delights can actually enhance our spiritual journey.
