How do we nourish the soul?
At this very minute, a group of women is gathered on a farm in Middle Tennessee to explore this question and bring our experience into the coming week, month, year… I hope you will join us in this live-giving endeavor.
As I ponder this question, I am reminded of a quote that I love. In A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf informs her audience, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” She is referring to food, and she is right of course. Eating well is the foundation for physical, emotional and mental health. But I am now thinking about her statement as it applies to the soul. Are our souls “dining well”? What nourishment do they need, and are we being intentional about giving it to them? How do we nourish the soul, our own and ours collectively?
