Threshold Readings

March 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 27, 2018

Threshold Readings or, as it used to be called, Reading for the Dead, is one of the ways that we can honor our beloved one’s who have crossed the threshold and deepen our understanding of the nature of the spiritual worlds. In so doing, we aid the passage of those beyond the threshold who seek those on earth who can connect with them, and with life between death and rebirth. We strive to build a relationship with each other in a mutual relationship of spiritual seeking and understanding. We delve into the mysteries of life and life after death in an effort to bring alive what lives in us about the workings of the spiritual world.th

In doing so, we attune ourselves to what surrounds us in all we do, feel and think. Life is an experience of living and becoming aware of what/who lives in the surrounding spaces of existence, from the forces of nature in all its aspects to our relationships with each other as human beings and our Dead.

We engage with wonder and we listen deeply to our surroundings and to each other. We also struggle together to understand what it means to be a human being living a journey from heaven to earth and back again as we do in our individual karmic pictures. We acknowledge that we are spiritual beings attempting to make a true relationship to ourselves, each other and to the forces at work in the world and beyond.

Many come to our study on a regular basis. Some come for a shorter time when they have experienced the death of a friend or relative to seek comfort and deeper understanding of the journey from life to death and back to life. All are welcome to come. We engage in a verse and lyre playing at the beginning and at the end of our gathering. We enjoy many moods and experiences depending on who comes. It is a remarkably healing and uplifting experience to study and share together in this capacity.

We begin promptly at 7:00 pm. We are currently reading a compilation of lectures entitled “Spiritual Life Now and after Death”.  For more information about what lecture we are reading, please email Joanna Carey at: joannapcarey@gmail.com. Also bring pictures of loved ones to share with others if you so choose. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
