Renaissance 2021 – A New Season of Growth for Spiritual Companionship


Steven Crandell

Can you hear it? 
There in your heart. 
A vibration. 
A resonance. 
A song. 
It heralds a fresh start – 
a greening, a blossoming, an awakening. 

Be still: 
Can you feel it brush gently past your skin –  
like the first warm breeze of spring after the privations of winter?  
It’s the invigorating whisper of hope –   
an invitation to begin exploring again 
after a season of suffering, darkness and seclusion.

Open your heart:
Imagine the transforming connection you feel when you connect with God or the Universe, 
When you hold space for another human being’s self-discovery, 
When you no longer feel separate from love.  
That’s it.  
The alignment. The knowing. The oneness.  
That’s the inspiration for Renaissance 2021.
