Open Our Senses
Open our senses to wisdom’s inner promptings
that we may give voice to what we hear in our soul
and be changed for the healing of the world,
that we may listen for truth in every living soul
and be changed for the well-being of the world.
-John Philip Newell from Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter. Photo credit: Chuck Summers.

Wisdom Ways Labyrinth & Ritual Resources
Did you know that Wisdom Ways rents a variety of labyrinths and other ritual resources?
Organizations and individuals from all over the United States seek out Wisdom Ways as a go-to place for these resources. Labyrinths are often used for church services, holy day celebrations, contemplative practices, and children's programs.
Ritual resources include singing bowls and other instruments, fabrics, scarves, feather masks, rocks, shells, a vinyl floor Map of the World, and assorted images and books.
Summer is the perfect time to stop by the Wisdom Ways library and check-out a book!
This week we feature a selection by Deborah Keenan who was at Wisdom Ways in spring 2016.
WILLOW ROOM, GREEN DOOR
Deborah Keenan sifts through inanimate objects and forgotten memories in search of personal validation. Her journal-like confessions create an instant bond with the reader, yet these seemingly simple poems daringly redefine common language. (From Goodreads). Deborah is the author of 10 books of poetry and is also a professor and faculty advisor in the Graduate Liberal Studies program at Hamline University.
The Wisdom Ways library is located in the Carondelet Center, 1890 Randolph Avenue, St. Paul.
July 11 - September 26
Fascinated by the layering of colors in the depths of the forest and the grassy meadows they surround, Rita Beyer Corrigan is currently working with landscape images of northern Minnesota, especially along Lake Superior. The contrast of and reflective nature of water set against the land forms of both rocks and trees also call her to record their images.
