The word of the Month for August is Creativity and the saboteur is Conformity. Creativity and intuition are very closely related words. Listening inside ourselves, and learning to trust our own ideas, is a very natural process. Conformity bypasses listening to ourselves in favor of whatever ideas might seem normal. In order to move forward, deep listening with creative ears is required to solve problems as they arise.
The video for this month is a departure from our ‘normal’ format of late, so that we could explore creatively – with friends!
The Word of the Month for July is Acceptance, and the saboteur is the word Denial. We often think of acceptance as a form of tolerance, but it is much deeper than that. Join us in the garden once again for a few words about acceptance.
The Word of the Month for June is Empathy. The saboteur of empathy is the word apathy. We know that empathy allows us to feel what another person is feeling and understand their perspective. Why is it important to feel other people’s pain, instead of succumbing to apathy? That’s the subject of the video for June.
This is the Second installment of the Saints in Training “First-Sunday Sit-Cast,” recorded in Oceanside, Ca. on Feb. 3rd, 2019.
The word for January was inspiration. The saboteur of inspiration was vanity.
We are inspired by beauty; in a moment, in a face, a song, or a look. Vanity tends to sour our ability to perceive inherent beauty within one another. We look for inspiration in all kinds of places out in the world, but it’s important to remember to look within.
