October Growth Exercises: an explanation

My apologies to those who have been waiting for publication of this month’s Growth Exercises, which are on the theme of Celebration! I must confess that I have been holding them back,… until today. You see, I wondered when this day might come. Today, I am celebrating a freedom (of sorts), after being ‘locked down’ for 106 days, as my city has tried to manage its COVID-19 crisis. Finally, I am allowed to freely visit some family and friends in their homes. Non-essential retail shopping is now ‘open’– including my local barber, whom I have been encouraged to visit. It’s a day of celebration– of a certain kind.

And so now is the right time for us to practice the Spiritual Disciple of Celebration– perhaps with even greater gusto than usual! Our October Growth Exercises begin here.
