The Divine Heart: Living in the Fullness of Love
Spiritual director and author Colette Lafia unfolds seven qualities of love that offer us a way to see and experience the Divine as a dynamic flow of love at the core of our being. These invitations into the depths of love are receptivity, light, expansiveness, vulnerability, acceptance, mystery, and gratitude. Drawing from her award-winning book, The Divine Heart: Seven Ways to Live in God's Love, Colette explores how we all share in a great capacity to grow in love and transform our lives.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Practical steps to experience your life and all of life as a love story we're all living
- A vision of divine love as a relationship we are participating in, in every moment
- Ways to listen to your inner wisdom and trust your spiritual intuition
