Wilderness Homegoings

I have been invited by Oasis, a local-to-me contemplative prayer and spiritual companioning community, to share some reflections from my recent experience in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota.

This year, we were not to be permitted across the Canadian border. A deep sense of loss filled me, yet I struggled with the decision to simply supplant yet another ‘experience’. It felt forced at best, and like an unwillingness to face/be with my emptiness at worst. But after a few false starts and changes of plans, we finally took the plunge and headed to northern Minnesota, for most of the month of September. In that place, I lost myself in presence and in Love, and experienced a simpler, inconspicuous, deep sense of belonging.  

These posts are just a few samplings of our days spent (quite literally) quenching our thirst from her waters.
