Centering the Soul

Modern-day philosopher Parker Palmer has presented a model that suggests that our UU community develop a discipline 'that is centered in cultivating the soul, the true self, the hidden wholeness within each of us, and elevating it from a shy presence we seek in the forest to a teacher. Victoria Safford suggests 'The soul is a spark deep within, inviolate, your own, and you stoke that fire with new vitality your whole life long, shining your bright flame and warming your hands at the hearts of strangers and lovers and everyone else.'
