The Calendar is ready!

The Sacred Pause calendar is ready!


to buy yours today!


Believe it or not, I have finished my Sacred Pause 2009 calendar.  When I decided to do this project, I did not want to create just a “regular calendar,” but one that is a little more unique and inspiring. 


I have titled it “Sacred Pause: The Wisdom of Stillness.”  It will be a blending of Sacred Pause images, complementary inspirational passages, and a “Monthly Pause” exercise each month that will rally the reader to dig deeper for a more enriching life.  I have found that blending images and encouraging words can help “shift the soul”; there is such power with words and pictures when seen together.  It creates a double-punch, a spark of energy, like when 2 stones are rubbed together.  I have completed selection of the images, and I am now working on picking the best passages and exercises to pair with them.  Some of the life lessons I will include are:  Be in the Moment; Ask your Angels; Peace Maker; Listen to your Heart; Honoring Those Wise Souls; and Sacred Spaces at Home.


My hope is for this calendar to truly be a piece of art and inspiration that the reader will enjoy each day of the year and beyond.  I am currently taking orders for my calendar, and will offer a signed copy for the first 100 copies ordered.  So place your order today to reserve your copy. www.sacredpause.com

Why do I travel to sacred places?

My journey to sacred places is not a new concept.  Since the beginning of time, people have sojourned near and far to sacred places in pursuit of a spiritual communion with oneself, ancient people and the universe around us. My sacred journey to Hawaii will include visits to many sacred sites which will include Hawaiian heiaus-a place of ancient worship, offering and sacrifice.  A stay at a Tibetan Buddhist Temple where the Dalai Lama has taught.  A visit to Molokai's Kalaupapa Peninsula which has a great sense of mystery and reverence.  This location  was set aside in the 1860's as a leper colony and where the Belgian priest Father Damien tended and gave comfort to the exiled patients before he was afflicted with the disease.
Sacred places represent the essential spirit of humankind.
