Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.”
I am always aware of how spaces and places affect me - make me feel open or closed or afraid or hopeful or creative or inspired.
It is interesting that in relating to ourselves and to others we can choose to create mental and spiritual spaces that allow our wholeness and their wholeness to exist without judgement and without constraint. In this way, we can practice a hospitality of the mind and of the spirit.
Sometimes a change of place promotes this practice. Shifting our physical bodies into a new place can shift our mind and our spirits.
In a new place, from a different perspective, we can open our minds and spirits to be more gracious to ourselves and to others. We can create room for being unconditionally whole.
At Spring Bird, we invite you to this space, these woods, and this cottage so that you can find change if you are looking for it and to be wholly present.
You are always invited!
