From My Heart: Reverend Jyoti

We’ve got some great things coming up at CSL Boulder Valley. This Friday night we’ll have an amazing Sound Healing and Chakra Balancing event with Tibetan bowls, essential oils, and raw chocolate. Go to EventBrite for tickets. And the first Friday in August we’re hosting a concert by Tim Hamm (and possibly other musicians). Tim is in Colorado until Labor Day performing and recording his next album. We’re lucky to have him for our Sunday music on July 30th and the concert on August 4th. Mark your calendar now, it will be great. Speaking of great music – Thom Lich from Mile Hi will do music for us on July 16th – you’ll want to be here for that, for sure!

This is such a wonderful spiritual community. I feel SO BLESSED! Thanks to Carol & Mike Farrell for opening their beautiful home and backyard for the June Potluck, and to all who made it such a great time with GREAT food! And thanks to the Board of Trustees who not only keep our Center running smoothly, but who took a beautiful Saturday to attend a Strategic Planning Meeting to focus on what we do well as a Center and how we can serve in an even greater way.

We’ve had some great Outreach projects lately, and we’ll be collecting much-appreciated backpacks and school supplies – but only until July 16th. So check the Sunday paper or online for sales and let’s provide some kids with the smell of new crayons and other school supplies, and spiffy new backpacks. Thanks in advance for your amazing generosity!

Our theme for July (within our 2017 theme of Values Based Spiritual Living) is Open Communication. On Sunday mornings, I’ll be talking about listening, so you may want to be giving some thought to how you listen – to Life/Spirit/God/Whatever you call it, to yourself and others, and to the world. How can we listen with our heart and what are the gifts in that? And even though summer can be a very busy time, be sure to give yourself time with Spirit – time in meditation, prayer, silence, nature – whatever helps you to connect with the truth of your divine essence.

Candice Ortiz, our much-loved childcare provider, is back after having been on a family related journey. She does some great stuff with the kids on Sunday mornings, so if there are kids in your life that would like some fun, positive time, bring them. Kids are ALWAYS welcome!

May your month be filled with love, prosperity, great garden produce, time to relax, and all else your heart desires. In July, I’ll be in the office on Thursday afternoons from 2:30-5:30, as usual. I’m also in the office at other times by appointment. Feel free to call if you’d like to come in to share your ideas, or for support or prayer. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday mornings!

Journey joyfully, knowing that you are blessed and you ARE a blessing!
Love, Rev. Jyoti
