My last blog post about bringing sacredness into our mealtime was reflected recently in a website called Spiritual Ecology. Following the arrow down led me to a page called “Seasons of the Sacred.” I am so excited to share this with you, since this is an expansion of practice beyond yourself or family. If you sign up, they will provide a guide on how to become a host for your own community.
“Seasons of the Sacred is an opportunity to reconnect to the Earth and community by coming together around the table for a shared, seasonal meal. It is a chance to be nourished in a new telling of an ancient story—one of an integrated natural world and its cycles—by joining together in one of the oldest and most beautiful of rituals: the breaking of bread.
“Seasons of the Sacred is a meal and gathering—organized and hosted by you—centered around seasonal food, recipes, and conversation, which prompt us to reflect on our relationship to the natural cycles around and within us. Whether rejoicing in the new life of spring, listening to the stillness of winter, or celebrating the vibrant green of summer: Seasons of the Sacred is an invitation to bring family, friends, and communities together around your table to discuss and experience what it means to reconnect to the seasons and to a shared and inclusive sense of place.”
