Nature, Presence, and Connection
Oct 18, 2019

Nature, Presence, and Connection

When we are deeply present, we feel connected and peaceful. Connection gives us a sense of belonging on this planet we call Earth. When there is connection, we feel love. And love is the great healing power of the Universe.

Explore meaningful connection and deep presence in a group of soul sisters dedicated to personal and spiritual growth. Immerse in yoga, meditation, deep nature connection practice, heartfelt sharing and group processes, and a sprinkling of sacred solitude. All intended to strengthen your connection to Nature, each other, the Divine, and your True Self.

God and Love on Route 80

The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness

By Stephen G. Post

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.
