Rev. Lori's Message

Dear Beloved Spiritual Community: 

Happy new season of holy days and holidays! We are entering an era of light and love, with multiple opportunities to practice the spiritual disciplines that bring us to this season of giving; not just material gifts, but gifts of our renewed minds and refreshed hearts. Together, as we practice forgiveness, compassion, and kindness, we honor all the wonderful spiritual and cultural celebrations that auspiciously converge in to one amazing month of sacredness. All paths lead to an understanding of our divine purpose; which is to live in focused dedication to a loving, peaceful life through the practices of self-inquiry, kindness, honesty, integrity, and forgiveness. And here's a great practice for the month: take a moment to look into a mirror of inner inventory before judging others or gossiping. See the light, BE the light, then you will see it in others; your Beloved reflections. >p> I am excited to share that I have recently completed my Level III Reiki training and received my Master's Level Attunements! I am now entering into a concentrated contemplative and practice phase (I think of it as a type of spiritual internship) which will last for the next three moths. After that, I'll be offering private reiki trainings for those of you who are interested in exploring this beautiful and sacred healing technology. In the meantime, I'll be offering some free reiki sessions in January, so contact me asap if you're interested. In Seminary News: Sacred Journey Interfaith Seminary is extending great, heartfelt thanks to all of you who helped us with our recruitment ad campaign. Thanks to you we were able to run several 30 second commercials during MSNBC and on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday as well as a print ad in the South Florida Gay News x three weeks! Our application deadline for January classes is December 15th, so if you have heard the call to ministry, check us out now.

LMC Interfaith Ministries will be celebrating love and light every Thursday, 7pm, at The Center For Inner Wisdom. Join us to enjoy our sacred gathering and to find guidance from A Course In Miracles. The Center is located at 4849 N. Dixie Highway, Oakland Park. 33334 (Suite #2) We look forward to being blessed with your presence! This month of December Thursdays is full of loving celebrations in recognition of Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, Winter Solstice, The Full Moon, AND my birthday!
