This past Sunday we gathered for our Annual Meeting … it was short, sweet and intended to maximize interest and participation! We shared exciting information on our 2016 and 2017 financial affairs, overall community engagement and upcoming Taste of Bodhi details. The short of it is we had a great 2016 and 2017 is proving to be filled with generosity, creativity and, in true Bodhi fashion, lots of love! Read More

New Theme For September: “Shining Brightly”

By | Blogs | 5 Comments

“You are capable of making a difference, of being bold, and of changing more than you are willing to admit. You are capable of making art.”
— Seth Godin

And you can begin that creation right where you are! Sure, there may be a new career or love interest in your future. Sure, there might be more money accumulated and more things gathered but none of that is required for you to launch the brilliant work of art that is you!

New Theme for August: “Your Body. Your Temple.”

By | Blogs | 2 Comments

Temple means house of God. Your body is the house of God. Your body is your temple. Your body is the house of the living spirit. It is your most sacred space. It is the manifest realm of God. It is the tabernacle of the Almighty. And it is with you everywhere you are. Your physical experience is the way that Life knows of Itself. Without you the self-knowingness of Spirit cannot exist.

New Theme for July: “Free Your Mind”

By | Blogs | 4 Comments

This month we break free of our survival structures. We enter the high altar of consciousness. We dance with the infinite realm. This month we affirm that we are first and foremost spiritual beings.

By virtue of today’s culture and society we can be fairly confident that there are deep neural pathways that support our finite self. We can be fairly confident that deep grooves exist to confirm that something “out there” is going to get us. The false belief of survival can be subtle and it can be dramatic. Read More

New Theme for May: “The Courage To Be”

By | News | No Comments

In the month of May we will explore what it means to BE. What comes up when we are BEing and not just DOing? BEing is a practice of great courage. We live in a time where it is ever tempting to go, go, go and do, do, do and yet our soul is always inviting us to BE.

We live in a time where it is ever tempting to go, go, go and do, do, do and yet our soul is always inviting us to BE. Read More

A Purpose Higher Than Ourselves

By | Blogs | No Comments

Yesterday we explored the work of Marianne Williamson. She is a bold voice for transformation on the planet. She recently said, “Our salvation lies in being available for the healing of the other. Our purpose here is to be used for something higher than ourselves.” Over the last 18 months we have dug in on the concept of Building the beLOVEd Community, a concept rooted in the notion that we are innately compelled to rise up from our small selves and live in support of a greater cause.

The #DriveTo75

By | Blogs, Events, News | 5 Comments

I LOVE POTENTIAL! You must first know that about me. I love celebrating what is and then creating what can be. I love witnessing the wake up of someone to their magnificence. I love witnessing someone’s discovery of their unique purpose on this planet. I love witnessing the stretch of what’s possible. #Driveto75 is exactly that. It’s a conversation that started at Bodhi last Sunday. #Driveto75 is a special intention to kick off a response to a financial gap we are currently experiencing. Read More
