  Sitting alone in the Sanctuary de Chimayo in New Mexico, I hear this prayer echoing loudly in my head against the silent backdrop of the empty church: Madonna of Grace, you go by so many names. May you whisper in my ear, the breath of God, so many times, that I may not forget […]

When we see God as separate we will always feel powerless, that is, the power is outside of us. So when things don’t go our way it triggers feelings of fear, that things are out of control. When things in our life seem to be working, going according to plan, we do not notice this […]

I have come to understand spiritual pilgrimage as a journey in which we travel outside the familiar in order to ultimately come home to our Self. I have been taking spiritual pilgrimages since I was nineteen years old as a way to see myself outside of the constraints of my daily reality. There is something […]

Reverence is the word that comes to mind when I think of entering the room with the Relics of the Saints in Arizona.

In this conversation Robert Thurman, who follows […]

They came from different places, arriving to the Four Points Sheraton in San Rafael, some expecting miracles and others not knowing what to expect. I heard people say as they entered the large room that they felt a presence. It was palpable even before the day had begun. The altar was set in the front […]
