Sources of Beloved Life
In Beloved Life we are seeking wisdom and practices in daily life for personal transformation, reshaping of community and renewal of the earth.
We are looking to learn from the life and teaching of Jesus the Christ, source of wisdom and companion for the journey that we are making.
We are looking to learn from the earth and its creatures, letting their quiet wisdom guide us.
We are looking to learn from all the saints and the mystics, the dreamers and the activists, the poets and the artists, the dancers and the musicians, the makers and the explorers in every area of human activity who have walked this path before us.
We hope that you will find here some of the resources that you may need for your own journey of human becoming.
‘Acquire inner peace, and thousands around you will find their salvation…’ St Seraphim of Sarov
