Spiritual Preparation

Like the little girl in the story, "Maya's Questions," both adults and children wonder how to know when they are on the right path. Maya learns to be herself, be aware, and always be kind. When we are present and attentive, we are best able to respond authentically and kindly to the world around us. We then likely feel that we are on the right path and able to give the gift of ourselves — our energy, spirit, and love — to others.

Take a few moments to consider your own experience of "being here now." Think of times you experienced yourself as valuable and generous because you were able to be present and aware. Bring that positive and nurturing energy with you to this session.
