Many of us have grown to question aspects of our religious and spiritual practices. It could be a specific life event that changes our planned path for the future or trying to find where is God in my life. Paula will share with us her own personal life event that brought her to a place of questioning, understanding, and acceptance of life as it is. She will share with us a fresh way of thinking about spirituality that grows throughout life.
Paula D’Arcy is a writer, international retreat leader, and the founder and President of Red Bird Foundation. Red Bird Foundation supports the growth and spiritual development of all who want to live with a more open heart, including those in limited circumstances such as individuals in prison or those in great need, and those invested in the healing of this world. Paula is a former psychotherapist whose personal tragedy led her to reach out to others. Through her retreats and publications, she is a beacon of hope as we encounter challenges and grief throughout our life. Among her best-selling books are Gift of the Red Bird, Waking Up to This Day, and Stars at Night. There is a special dynamic that occurs when two people engage in a heartfelt and meaningful conversation. My intention in hosting “Gracious Space” was to introduce to the universe people who are making a difference in the world by their presence and life’s work. I have learned so much from each of them and have even gained new friends. In my podcast this week, I will focus on the personal impact each one had on me and how they have influenced my life’s work and personal transformation.
