Sacred Stories with LaEisha Howard: Sacred Forgiveness
Join us for this expansive conversation with LaEisha Howard as she shares her Sacred Story about the power of forgiveness and gratitude, practices we can use to help us stay present as we navigate past struggles. LaEisha teaches us how to bring these qualities into a daily prayer practice of blessing the sticky spots and elevating gratitude each day.
LaEisha also shares with us a story from her memoir about her mother, who used to remind her: treat everyone with love, as you do not always know what is going on beneath their surface. This beautiful reminder is such a sacred way to honor one of my favorite Ram Dass quotes, “Treat everyone like God in drag.”
LaEisha's story invites us to consider:
~ How can I claim a prayer practice for myself?
~ How might I infuse resilience and intention into my prayer practice?
~ How do we best process and grow: via writing, therapy, prayer, nature time, or meditation.
~ What might be one next step in allowing ourselves to let go of any grudges we hold?

Erin Celeste: Sacred Power
Join us for this deeply powerful conversation as Erin Celeste shares a story about finding her own voice and how that emerges in her relationships. We explore the universal human question, "Can I trust to be loved as my true self?" Can I show up as I truly am and be deeply loved for that? Erin clarifies external vs. internal power and offers tools for how we can shift old stories about ourselves. She also reveals a compelling way to diffuse conflict.
Erin's story invites us to consider:
~How do we hold someone else in sacred space when they are feeling triggered and vulnerable?
~The embodiment practice of asking the other person, "What do you feel in your body right now?"
~If you are feeling stuck in a relationship, discerning whether to keep working on your relationship or accept that it is not a good fit.
~How do we start to dismantle old structures that keep us in suffering?
