The Wow of Now!

This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful; in a word, more alive. ~ Alice Waters

Welcome to Paths of Heart“- a high spirited, heart-centered community where we gather together in music, poetry, commentary, and dialogue to create and nurture joy, compassion, gratitude, and love – in our own lives and throughout the world.  Paths of Heart is a 501(c)(3) Human Services/Educational non-profit organization that uses the arts, especially, to encourage and propel seekers of a better, more peaceful world to find ways to serve, while becoming more kind and compassionate human beings.

We welcome you as we collectively and individually explore the sweet mysteries of life – this is an invitation into co-creation! Our gatherings are most every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at 117 Evans Drive in north Fort Collins. Childcare is available (please let us know ahead of time so we can make arrangements).

We hope our paths cross soon!

Colleen has some stories to tell about her adventures last week, and I’m sure we all have inspiring wisdom on this topic!  We’re also delighted to have Myles Sloniker and Eva Bacmeisterjoining us in joyous music this morning!

“Life doesn’t always carry forward on an even keel…. but there’s an offset to fears of the unknown and all their uncertainties and that offset is to take unflappable pleasure in the moment.”
~ David Crosson (Colleen’s cousin)

“You can’t stop the future
You can’t rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
…is to press play.” ~ Jay Asher

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

The carport area is reserved for folks with special parking needs. Out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that you kindly refrain from parking on Evans Drive beyond our property line. Car pooling is encouraged.  We also have a bike rack for cyclists!
