Wild Earth Gathering: Playing on the Whole Beach
Our gatherings are fueled by a deep dive into Oneness. We enter the woods slowly, simply taking in what we see without critique or judgment.

About the Event
Dearest Wild Ones,
During a long struggle questioning my belonging to the institutional church, someone, somewhere at some time, said to me, “You don’t want to play in the sandbox. You want to play on the whole beach!” My gratitude to the unknown speaker is immense because this has become a foundational metaphor as I honor and explore a boatload of spiritual traditions, not just my own.
As we continue to challenge our receptivity to being a truly inter-spiritual group, we begin this Sunday hearing one another’s faith stories. Amy will lead us as we launch this series by sharing the genesis and development of her own spiritual travels. As we grow in our ability to experience curiosity (rather than judgment) about another’s path, we are building a community where all feel welcome.
Also, we’ll get to hear again the ethereal harmonies of Amy, Jane, Heidi and Jenny!
As always, we immerse ourselves in what’s happening in the woods at Carderock duringthis season of sweltering afternoons and thunderstorms.
- How are non-humans responding to these long summer days?
- How are humans responding?
- How does the season delight and challenge your experience of the Sacred?
- What fruit is ripening in your inner soil?
Looking forward to playing on the whole beach with you.
