In a world which can feel more and more disconnected, it’s important to have a place of refuge for true connection.
For me, one of these places is an Awakin circle or retreat held by ServiceSpace.org, an “incubator of gift economy projects”. Practising love, community and connection through applying one’s head, heart and hands, both its circles and retreats are full of love, beauty and big-hearted people led by a desire to be in service to others and the world.
I had the tremendous honour of being asked to be one of the opening sharers on Sunday the 18th of March at the Awakin London One-Day Retreat: From Me to We which was about cultivating Ubuntu;
“Ubuntu speaks of the very essence of being human…. you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, ‘My humanity is inextricably bound up in yours.’ We belong in a bundle of life.”— Desmond Tutu
I was kindly asked me to share my words on the ServiceSpace blog (another request I feel honoured by!), but I’m sharing them here, too.
May my words be of service to you 🙂
