Self – February’17 Spiritual Theme

Our Monthly Spiritual Themes guide our Chalice Circles, which are small, intentional groups of members and friends that gather for spiritual enrichment through personal sharing.

For more information on Chalice Circles, please contact our membership team.

Our Chalice Circle thoughts and questions around the theme of The Self this month are:
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi
What is one change you’ve wished for the world that you’ve made in yourself?

“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.” ― May Sarton
What might be frightening about really being yourself?

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka
Think of a book, film, play, or any other work that made you aware of an unknown chamber within yourself.

“Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.” ― Toni Morrison
What part of yourself do you not “own” but would like to?
