What is holy to you?
What is Holy to you? What is the Sacred? Is it your family? The Earth? God or Spirit of Life? Do you wonder what role you play in our universe? Or with the universe within yourself? These are important and exciting questions, ones that courageous and adventurous people have asked since our minds understood the wonders of our existence. Just as Jesus went into the wilderness and the Buddha sought the shade of the Bodhi Tree, we invite you to take a step away from the noise to join us on Star Island to reflect more fully on these questions. We will covenant to live together in a respectful community as we plumb the depths of our understanding of ourselves and the Divine, however it makes itself known to us. We will seek to understand how to show love to our neighbors, to strangers, and ourselves. We will not only think outside the box on these questions, but throw it away and build our own, if only for one week. This week is for those seeking to understand themselves and their world in a richer and deeper way. It is for people who know their lives are more than busy schedules, grades, and peer pressures. It’s for people who know there is Mystery in the world, and it fills them with excitement. We’re all in this together, and we invite you to join us on an incredible journey.
