I'm told that sometimes you need to just ask for what you need in life. You know, put it out there so that the universe can conspire to make it happen. So here it is:
I would like to find a small, intimate group of (local) people to study with on a semi serious/casual basis, as in once or twice a month meet up to discuss what we're working on, what we've learned, what we're wrestling with. I would like these people to be serious in their aspirations and able to motivate/inspire me (spiritually and materially) as much as I do the same for them.
On top of a monthly or bi-monthly meet up, I would like to be able to celebrate sabbats or esbats, depending on our collective schedules, in a child friendly, informal, and joyous environment. We don't have to celebrate all events together but I would like to be able to raise my son with an awareness of these days so I'd like there to be enough of these celebrations that he grows up with them in his life.
I don't want an overtly hierarchical group or a leader. I'm open to the idea of collective, collaborative learning with like minded souls.
I'd like to find my spiritual tribe. I'd like to be a part of that tribe for others. It doesn't have to always be easy, but it has to be worth it.
It's a tall order. But I'm putting it out there and trusting you'll help me manifest it.
