I send you greetings, love and best wishes for August. I look forward to a month of events around the island, beginning this weekend with our regular monthly meditation group in Waimea and the last "Walking in the Wild" for the foreseeable future. In the months ahead, this newsletter will bring information of new programs and poetry/teaching events around the island — and in all likelihood abroad next year also.
Our Community Blog
continues to be active while the Petals and Blood Blog has regular weekly posts. The July 2014 talk at the meditation group in Waimea titled "The Indestructible Essence of who we truly are" has been downloaded, with separate meditation instructions, to the Library of Talks and is available for listening and download.
I look forward to the possibility of our paths crossing this month
Meke aloha pauole a hui hou.
I wish you well in every way.
May we and all beings be infinitely free.

Spiritual Mentoring with Gavin, in person or over the phone:
"We live in a busy world with many distractions. It can be a challenge to stay grounded and connected with one's deepest yearning--to live one's spiritual truth within every corridor of this precious human life. Spiritual Mentoring is a relationship of support, serving the possibility of deeply resting within, and living from, one's true nature, in its richness and beauty."
For more information about Spiritual Mentoring, please email Gavin directly.
