At the end of the day, my story is about the resilience of my human spirit and the unfolding of my wisdom years.
In 2016, I gave myself the gift of time to ponder deep spiritual questions that led to new life goals that embody energy shifts and changes, newfound creativity, relevancy, and legacy.
The life review and goal-setting program, “Coming to the Center of the Labyrinth,” builds on my own life-changing experience with this program.
As I traveled the metaphorical labyrinth’s path in my mind’s eye, I descended into the world of inner thought and reflection. At the center was a quiet place of calmness and rest: a place where my soul revealed goals for my wisdom years’ pathway. When I resurfaced, I brought new learnings and decisions with me. Six months later, I joined a retreat that supported people who had completed the program and who wanted to sustain their initial effort. I continued to nurture my soul’s growth, living in a constant state of gratitude. And I added goals that included fun and play.
In 2017 following the Life Review Program retreat, an integrative image of a woman started emerging in meditation, culminating in the one I developed at an Exhibitions Class taught by Nan Hess Feldman at the Worcester Art Museum this past winter. The image, below, hangs in the student show at WAM until the Thursday, May 24 open house from 4-6 pm.
I am celebrating many things as a result of the Life Review: a vision for a spiritual renaissancein America and the world based on a dream I had of a Phoenix rising out of the ashes of 9/11 while in NYC that day, a new book; updated websites of my life’s work: VirginiaSwain.com and www.global-leader.org; New ventures include America’s Soul Cafes, Exploring Our Global Soul and being trained to lead others through the Life Review program: Coming into the Labyrinth. The life review clarified for me that it was time to dissolve the Center for Global Community and World Law, our NGO in consultative status at the UN.
