Winner of this week’s drawing

A deep bow of gratitude to everyone who participated in this week’s poetry party “In praise of detours.”  As always, the Abbey community came through with a beautiful gathering of poems – definitely worth a visit and some time to linger.

The winner of the random drawing for a book of their choice is Deanna Cattell.  Deanna, send me your snail mail address and which of my books you’d like for me to send you (signed of course) and I will get that out to you.

I am away this coming week leading a retreat on the archetypes and expressive arts with a fabulous group.  I can’t wait to dive in alongside these other seeking souls.

Only one space left in the Sacred Rhythms Writing Retreat (June 7-10, 2012).  Click the link for more details and to join us! 

There are just a few spaces left in our two fabulous online classes being offered this spring through the Soul Care Institute (for soul care practitioners – spiritual directors, chaplains, pastors, counselors, etc): Earth as Soul Care Matrix: The Wild Heart of Ministry (April 16-May 27, 2012) being taught by me and Live it to Give it: Essential Practice of Soul Nourishment and Self-Care (April 16-May 27, 2012) being taught by Kayce Stevens Hughlett. If you offer care for others’ souls, consider making a commitment this spring for your own restoration and replenishment.
