The Spirit of the Season

The Christmas season is officially upon us! If you participate in Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, or Giving Tuesday, it has been a busy week for gift giving and financial decisions. I invite you to give your brain and your bank account a break and use this poem to reconnect with the Spirit of the season.


A Bodypsalm for Christmas

by Celeste Snowber


Be dressed in the presence

of Christ within you

however you believe

or articulate your place on earth

and connection to the numinous

may this season of craziness

where everything one values is turned upside down –

return to what matters


R E T R E A T


into the space


of incarnation

where word became flesh

and dwelt among you

and in you

the light within you

is greater than any shadow

even though you and I as babes

were formed in the dark of the womb

we are born into light


May this season

uncover tiny spaces

to be clothed once again

in the wider knowing

you shine from the inside out

and are held from the inside out


in emptying is fullness

and small gestures of kindness

and your presence

is Christmas gone wild


here is the fierce beauty

romancing you

to peace.
