Dear Viriditas Community,
Happy Valentine’s Day! To start off I want to gift you with my favorite quote from St. Hildegard:
So Creation loves the Creator.
Creation, of course, was fashioned to be adorned, to be showered, to be gifted with the love of the Creator.
The entire world has been embraced by this KISS.
God has gifted Creation with everything that is necessary.”
Are you needing a little inspiration for ways to feel this KISS? Would you like to learn ways to deepen or expand what you already do in your spiritual practice so you can grow within the light of the Divine toward your Highest Self? Then don’t miss my blog post this week, 5 Ways to Develop your Spiritual Practice. Now, more than ever, our personal practice is vital for our own health and the health of our communities and world. And after reading the blog, be sure to leave me a comment telling me about how you use these practices in your daily life!
Doctor of the Soul Events for 2018
As I continue to explore ways to adorn myself with the love of the Creator, I am happy to announce the new Doctor of the Soul events that will be offered for the year in my new Viriditas Home Studio. I’m so excited to host these once again, starting in April 2018!
Healing with St. Hildegard – Building on the work we did last year with St. Hildegard, we’ll explore her life through her music, illuminations, remedies, and letters of correspondence. This will serve as a springboard of inspiration for applying her wisdom in practical ways for healing in our own lives in current times.
The classes will be held in my new Viriditas Home Studio at 800 Zamia Ave. in Boulder the first Saturday of each month from April through August. Dates to put on your calendar for the 5 sessions are: April 7th, May 5th, June 2nd, July 7th, August 4th.
Healing with Mantra – Building on our work from last year, we’ll focus solely on chanting mantras to Ganesh to aid you in bringing movement to areas where you are stuck in your life. Removing any obstacles will help you access your own power and brilliance on your journey in life.
The classes will be held in my new Viriditas Home Studio at 800 Zamia Ave. in Boulder the first Saturday of each month from September through December 2018. Dates to put on your calendar for the 4 sessions are: September 1st, October 6th, November 3rd, December 1st.
Everyone is welcome to both classes, even if you were unable to join us last year. I so look forward to welcoming you to my new Viriditas Home Studio.
The Fox Institute of Creation Spirituality in Boulder
Coming up very soon is the seminar Introduction to Creation Spirituality that David and I will be teaching in the mornings February 26th-March 2nd. This course will introduce students to the four paths of Creation Spirituality as well as principles associated with Creation Spirituality. Students will look at the lives and works of the following mystics, artists, and prophets through the lens of Creation Spirituality: Jose Hobday, Joanna Macy, M.C. Richards, The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu.
In the afternoons, Leon Evans MD, will be offering the Art as Meditation class, Embodying the Tao:Tai Chi as Meditation.
Then the following week, March 5th– March 9th, Ana Perez-Chisti will bring the seminar Deep Ecumenism: Interspirituality and the Wisdom Traditions in the mornings, and David and I will offer the Art as Meditation course Chanting the Wisdom Traditions in the afternoons.
In the Chanting the Wisdom Traditions course, David and I will use music, lyrics, and movement from the world’s wisdom traditions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and the Indigenous Peoples) to touch the spiritual essence within each of us and bring us together in community and celebration.
And there is more! Later in May, I will also be teaching The Mystic Hildegard and Engaging Hildegard’s Music, Art and Herbs.

All right dear ones, more next week…. In the mean time, may you be showered with the Love of the Creator this Valentine’s Day!
PS Remember you have access to the mantra for the heart chakra in my Free Healing Library A support to opening your heart and sending compassion and love to others. What a wonderful gift on Valentine’s Day to chant this mantra for yourself and others in the world!
