Join us for a Spring Equinox Gathering

All are Invited – Family & Baby-Friendly

 

March 19th, 3-5 p.m. – Free, however donations will be accepted. Suggested donations of $15. All proceeds donated to Shepherd’s Table of Silver Spring

  • Have you noticed an urgency rising in you? Frustration? Anger?
  • Have you been feeling stuck and looking for how to create some “right”movement forward for yourself and in relationship with the events of our times?

Come participate in a community gathering about Spring. This will be a time to learn more about the season from the perspective of Eastern medicine, how we notice it in nature and in our own life; and time to explore ways of working with and supporting rising energy. We will also explore yoga poses that support flow, mobility in the joints, and create calm during this time of change.

Register for class with our front desk in person, by phone (301-565-4924) or via email (frontdesk@crossingshealing.com)

  • An inspiring story for living your autumn days

    At an old monastery that was in the process of dying, there were five elderly monks left, and they were worried because everything was disintegrating and nobody seemed interested in what they were doing. The abbot went to confer with an old rabbi who sometimes stayed in a hut in the forest nearby. The rabbi and the abbot wept together about the lack of respect and response around them. As the abbot left, he asked the rabbi if he had any advice. The rabbi said, “No, the only thing I can tell you is that the Messiah is one of you.”

    The abbot went back to the monastery and told this to the other monks, and they couldn’t figure it out. They began to think about one another, at first feeling it was ridiculous that such a comment should have been made about any of them. But then they began to treat themselves with extraordinary respect.

    This aura of extraordinary respect that now began to surround the five old monks seemed to radiate out from them and permeate the atmosphere of the place. There was something strangely attractive, even compelling, about it.

    In due course many people came by, attracted by this aura of extraordinary respect, and the monastery became a thriving order again, “a vibrant center of light and spirituality.”
