May 5 – The Call of Conscious Creation
With every breath and every thought we create – whether consciously or unconsciously – at our essence we are all creative beings. Join Rev. DeeAnn for one last talk as we dive into what it means to answer the call of Conscious Creation and explore how a consciousness of gratitude and compassion directly impacts our experience of the world.
