Each month I cull through HUNDREDS of events in Houston and curate the best for you by highlighting six inspiring events (“PICKS”) and one “SPIRIT SPOTLIGHT” (an inspiring person or bricks-and-mortar place) as well as products, classes and workshops, and services. I focus on culture and art, meditation, spiritual events, healthy living, one-of-a kind moments, and organizations that enlighten and inspire Houstonians. I’m so amazed by this city and I want to share my delight with you!
SPIRIT PICKS will always be free to my readers so I’ll need advertising support to offset the cost of researching, writing, and designing it. If you are interested in advertising, please contact me. And so that we can spread the news of these great happenings in Houston, please share this information far and wide via email and social media with your friends and family members that might be interested -- or send them this link: www.spiritpicks.com.
Happy Month of Love! Here’s to enjoying life and loving those in it! And to lots of red valentines, and chocolate kisses, and sweet hand-holding!
If you know me personally or have watched my work, you know how much I love labyrinths. So I’m excited to let you know that I’ll be leading walks on the lovely new indoor labyrinth at the Hines Center for Spirituality and Prayer – please mark your calendar now and join me on Saturday, May 7 (World Labyrinth Day!); and Saturday, October 1 – from 1-3pm each time. We’ll have an inspiring reading, I’ll talk about labyrinths in general and the one at the Center in particular, and we’ll have time for reflecting through art. For all the scoop on my walks, please click here. And if you work downtown and have time to sneak away for a brainy brown bag lunch, join us at our “WORDS OF WISDOM: lively talks on inspiring topics” series – Brooke Summers-Perry, director of the Hines Center, will be our first speaker of the year on Friday, February 26, noon-1pm. The talks will take place once a month on select dates – click here to see the full schedule and to register.
There are so many things happening this month that it was hard for me to PICK just a few. It’s always like that in this full-of-culture city and I love it! So peruse all the PICKS and be sure to check out our WORKSHOPS & MORE listing – I found an energy healer from Canada and the Magdalene Community of Houston meetings. And it’s “Black History Month” so I want to point out a couple of celebrations – here’s a series going on at Christ Church Cathedral, featuring Houston Ballet dancer/educator Lauren Anderson and artist/labyrinth maker Reginald Adams. And the Houston Public Library has a full slate of events all month that features Ensemble Theatre and the African American Library at the Gregory School, among other organizations, people, and events.
This month’s VIDEO PICK is in honor of Valentine’s Day, hugging, and one of my favorite musicians, Michael Franti. Enjoy!
