♥ THEME: Nurturing the Garden of your Heart
♥ COST: $415 ( Deposit: $100)
Rumi says: Of the rain at night no one is aware for every soul is asleep. Yet the freshness of the rose garden in the morning is evidence of the rain that no-one saw.
As in all gardens there is much tending with loving care, planning, fertilising, weeding, replanting, composting, pruning – so many metaphors for what is needed in order to nurture the garden of our hearts. But most importantly the garden of our hearts is not visible to this world, we have our roots in the unseen – and there is a subtlety to our hearts that requires sensitivity and attunement and light to stay nourished and blooming.
Our Friend will talk about how to tend to the garden of our hearts, the light that is needed, and the steady commitment involved so that the fragrance of love permeates through and beyond our hearts.
