@mike would love to know where to purchase copies of your book, that funnel the greatest share of earnings to you? 😊
Wondering about folks experience with pre-marriage counseling outside of a church? (My partner and I are both in a process of deconstruction and aren't rooted with a particular church atm)
Thoughts about the worthwhileness of pre-marriage counseling? How to find a good one, or other alternative helpful resources?
I'm curious to hear from others who have given thought to what a "deconstructed" engagement or wedding might look like?
I'm disinterested in practices rooted in patriarchy and capitalism, but am drawn to elements of ceremony and ritual to mark significant events and transformation. Would love your stories or thoughts- on the conceptual or practical details!
@Aubrianne I think for me, I've formulated self-care as a mode of resistance to the commodification of my body and labor. What would it mean to do something just because it's fun, or silly, or relaxing, or feels good? What would it mean if I didn't have to spend my time being productive or profitable? What if I equally valued things that made me feel peace as I do things that make me feel useful or like I've contributed? I see healthy self-care with boundaries as reclaiming my body as a being.
Our souls & minds are starving for deep, rich, open, authentic, stimulating, meaningful, intellectual, spiritual conversations; yet we often choose to remain in silence. This community has allowed the breaking of silence. So grateful for it & all of you in this collective/family! 🖤✌🏽❤️ #TheLiturgists
"Perhaps quantum physics can help us reclaim what we’ve lost because our dualistic minds couldn’t understand or experience the living paradox that Jesus represents. Now science is confirming there is no clear division between matter and spirit. Everything is interpenetrating. As Franciscan scientist and theologian Ilia Delio says, “We are in the universe and the universe is in us.”
Folks, any advice for finding a therapist that understands deconstruction and the unusual varieties of spirituality thay many of us around here practice? I feel like it's time to talk to someone again, but I'm in a pretty religiously/politically conservative part of the country (West Michigan), and I don't think most members of that subculture could really be effective for me. Suggestions are appreciated.
