Portable Labyrinth

Santa Rosa

This is a Santa Rosa Labyrinth.  It is a seven circuit modified Medieval labyrinth, modelled after the 12th Century one laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral. This one was designed in 1997 by Lea Goode-Harris. Labyrinths are used today as a meditational tool; walking to calm the spirit and seek guidance.Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 1.26.32 PM

“The heart-space on the fourth path of the Santa Rosa Labyrinth is unique to this seven-circuit design. Approached from all four directions, this space has been the inspiration and focus for many labyrinth walks, poetry, and photos.” L. Goode-Harris.

Invocation for Change

This is an intuitive song invoking change. My heart is heavy for the world’s largest Christian religion. Even though I am not a Roman Catholic myself, I sense a deep yearning for change from so many whose voices are seemingly never heard.


I sing invented words or ‘vocables’ accompanied by a 22 inch ‘Remo’ brand Buffalo Drum. My hope that my soulful music lifts you to a good place.

A Beautiful Prayer

sunset

O God of Uncreated Light, we come before you now to offer you ourselves. We can only do this through your grace.
Grant us the grace of mindfulness. Help us to be calm, so that we may rest in your silence and peace.
Grant us the grace of willingness. Transform our will into yours, with delight and joy.
Grant us the grace of heartfulness. Unite us with you in the mystery of love, that we may love our neighbors as ourselves.
All this we ask with glad confidence and hope in you, O God, by the power of the Holy Spirit through the humanity of your blessed son Jesus Christ. Amen.
