Together we will Embrace the Universal Heart of Humanity and co-create a more just and compassionate world.

Our Circle of Grace will begin with a meditative recitation of Grace is Born, a beautifully illustrated poetic parable written by Lisa R. Cohen, illustrated by Judith Joseph, debuted at the 2015 PoWR in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our facilitator, Lisa R. Cohen, the CEO of Sparkle Press LLC/ InSparkle™ Media, wrote Grace is Born to promote personal healing through helping others. This spiritual guide to harmonious living awakens our gifts of divinity and inspires us to InSparkle ™ our world with Loving Acts of Compassion.

A brief reflective period will follow, at which time guests will be guided to write their “Living Prayer” on a Grace Note Keepsake.

Guests will then be invited to return to our Circle of Grace to explore and cultivate essential elements of a Global Ethic such as: The Golden Rule, Universal Love, Compassion, Affirmative Accountability and Service. We will be called upon to pay intense attention to others and
ourselves by engaging in deep inquiry, contemplative sharing and sacred listening; asked to refrain from providing unsolicited: counseling, advice or criticism.

This ancient yet timeless wellness practice of gathering in circle enables us to witness and honor each other’s divine presence.

A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to SHEROES United, whose founder Celeste Gleave was nominated to receive the 2018 PoWR Global Ethic Award. SHEROES United is a non-partisan charitable organization, assisting women victimized by sexual assault, domestic violence
and/or human trafficking to rise and fulfill their divine destiny via educational training, mentorship and leadership opportunities. SHEROES United also serves women in prison, indigenous women and provides prevention programs for youth/teens, considered to be at high risk. Representatives from SHEROES United will be present to update us about new programs in place assisting women around the world.
