About

In a world of war, torture, poverty, and ignorance, it requires a real leap of faith to create and embrace places of Sanctuary.

I saw this quote while running through O’Hare Airport almost 15 years ago, and it has continued to inspire and challenge me.  What do we need to take leaps of faith – emotionally and spiritually?  What happens when we do?  How can we help this community become a more safe and loving circle where transformation can unfold?  And, what do each of us need to become living, breathing sanctuaries for the Spirit?  Registration begins Oct. 1.
