Lessons From My Year of Living Spiritually:
A secular quest for a more soulful life.
By Anne Bokma
Description: "The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience." wrote the poet Emily Dickinson. Anne shares insights from her journey away from the fundamentalist church of her youth as well as her whirlwind year of experimenting with two dozen spiritual practices from singing to solitude to going to a witch camp and heading out on a pilgrimage -- and how they taught her to live more attentively and authentically in the world. All of us are on a spiritual journey yet so often we neglect this essential aspect of our lives.
Anne Bokma is an award-winning journalist and author of the new memoir, My Year of Living Spiritually: One Woman's Secular Quest for a More Soulful Life, which Oprah magazine columnist Martha Beck has described as "an engaging, entertaining, well-researched romp through the many variations of non-religious spiritual practice."
Anne is also the founder and host of Hamilton's popular 6-Minute Memoir live storytelling event and 6-Minute Memoir Online Writing Workshop Series, which is designed to help people select, shape and share a true story from their life. You can find out more about Ann and sign up for her monthly e-newsletter at annebokma.com Anne is a member of the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada.

Spirituality Discussion – This Sunday, January 10th, 9:30-10:30am
Our next 2nd Sunday, monthly zoom meeting of Spirituality Discussion will be this Sunday.
The topic will be:
Charles Eisenstein in his book The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, says that we are transitioning from a Story of Separation to a Story of Interbeing where we will be broadening our perspectives from our individual selves to one of community where we will gain as those around us gain and lose as those around us lose.
Recognizing that fulfillment is an important part of wellbeing, how will your means of achieving fulfillment change as we shift from a Story of Separation to a Story of Interbeing?
