‘In this world you never stand by your own strength; it is the Invisible that sustains you every moment’
– Saadi 

Spring is a time of renewal and a wonderful reminder of the creative strength beneath the surface.  It is this vital spiritual energy which we need to return to as our source of courage and wisdom.

There is a level of surrender that is needed, an acknowledgment of where our strength truly comes from, and this requires humility, and also a shift from the limited ego self who believes that it is the source of everything!

Our Friend will offer her wisdom and guidance on what a beautiful experience it is to be conscious of how the Invisible is sustaining us. It is actually a great relief, a great equaliser – it brings balance and harmony when the ego works in cooperation with spirit.

Our Friend will guide us in practices to help us experience the beauty of receptivity and how deeply nourishing it is, and she will give an inspiring discourse on this sublime teaching from Rumi.
