Pure Awareness of Community

by Glo Sherman

IMG_6201After the Blessing of the Bowls, and before Thanksgiving, this bowl served non-GMO corn and organic cabbage (cooked by Christyn Johnson) to a group of travelers on the Open Path, the inner school of the Sufi Way . We were gathering at the Whidbey Institute for the second of three retreats in the nine month training.Before the meal, the bowl sat in the middle of the carpet in Thomas Berry Hall during one of our discussion sessions.
IMG_6199The Whidbey Institute is such a beloved part of our community. It just seemed right that one of the Six Bowls be used to serve food prepared by a loving chef, in a place blessed by the spirits of thousands of individuals seeking community, to a group of individuals exploring enlightenment, or Pure Awareness.
