It Takes a Tribe to Manifest a “Calling!”

Story Two.  I heard a “call” to lead this Sacred Pearl Tour, the Pilgrimage to the Mother Pearl in Israel.  Like all previous spiritual “calls” I’ve received, just because the telephone rang didn’t mean I answered it…right away.  It took some convincing for me to take action.  This time was the same.

Lorien Eck was one such convincer.

lorienabout3 This past winter I went to San Francisco for the Wisdom 2.0 Summit.  There were thousands of people attending who were doing business on the cutting edges of Mindfulness and Technology.  In the middle of the roaring crowd, I missed the phone ringing and then barely could hear the voice message being left by a stranger who was inviting me to dinner for that night.  She had seen my post on Facebook that I would be at the Summit and she was going to be in San Francisco for the day.  She knew me from a virtual business-networking group we both belonged to and she said she looked forward to meeting me. I accepted the invitation.  With so many people to meet at the Summit, why did I say yes?

I believe in the power of the mysterious and the synchronistic.  Tickets to the Summit came to me at the very last minute when supposedly they were sold out and I believed there were important personal and professional reasons for them coming.  And, it was quite unusual to receive a telephone message like that one.  My curiosity was peaked!

When she pulled up in front of the Convention Center, her friend Lorien Eck was sitting in the back seat of the car. Our dinner was electrified!  That I was thinking of leading a pilgrimage for women to Israel came tumbling out from my mouth.  I could see Lorien’s mind churning; she was excited!

Lorien is an artist and creative process workshop leader. She is drawn and inspired by the land–its history, colors and textures.  Her art reflects what she “receives” and it awakens your heart and nourishes your spirit.  Of course, Israel being the Holy Land, Lorien’s art fits perfectly with Sacred Pearl Tours!  She offers sessions with individuals seeking self-understanding through her Soul Cosmology Paintings as well as offering workshops for groups both nationally and internationally.  Look at Lorien’s exquisite paintings for purchase at Lorien Eck Fine Art

Thanks so much, Lorien!  I think of you every day!


Sarah and Mary: Two Jewish Women Who Changed the Faith World

JIsrael 1_10 16 12_4582oin the conversation with Jacke Schroeder and Ellen Marie Dumer as they journey together to learn what Sarah and Mary can teach us about the role of faith in overcoming life’s obstacles. Let’s discover the powerful effect of tracing our female faith lineage.

We will discuss:
Who was Sarah?
Who was Mary?
What were highlights of their lives?
How did their actions demonstrate faith in G-d?
We think of Sarah and Mary as women in a story, but their lives were real and they were women just like us. How are we like them?
What can we learn from the obstacles they overcame?

At the end of the conversation we will discuss the Women’s Pilgrimage to the Mother Pearl in Israel starting on November 11, 2013. The outline we use for our conversation serves as a sample focus for enjoying the
Pilgrimage as we connect with our lineage, our personal ancestors, and what took place at the sacred sites we’ll be connecting with in Israel. If you are thinking about joining the group to Israel, we will allow time for any questions you may have.
