We are...

Spiritual People Relational People   People of Action

We attend and respond to the power that connects us through engagement with spiritual practices and conversations that nourish us for our work together. 

We build trust and deepen relationships as we attend to the personal and public dimensions of our stories and celebrate the abundance experienced in community. 

We publicly respond to cultural, economic and ecological inequity; acting powerfully together in neighborhood and citywide actions for thriving, diverse neighborhoods.


 

Summer Sabbath Circles


The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within
by Christine Valters Painter

We continue Leaven's tradition of practicing sabbath together, gathering in one another's homes to reflect and rest in community. Guided by the book, The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within, by Christine Valters Painter, we will attend to this time of expansive light and inward and outward rhythm shifts.

Each gathering will include a time of reflection, practice, discussion and refreshment.  You will then be sent into your week with a new practice, returning to the next gathering to make meaning of your experience.  Below are the dates and locations for the various Sabbath Circles. While the circles are located in various parts of the city, anyone is welcome, so pick the one that works best for your schedule and transportation. It's okay if you need to miss a couple of sessions, but do try to make most of them. Books are available at Broadway Books and Amazon
