Theme: We are what we worship
Meditation: I bow before the ultimate
Interactive: Designing a personal shrine

Avi: Worship has a bad ring to it these days. We think of cults or old-time religion. But at its heart, worship is simply a way to reinforce our dedication and humility in the face of something that we find worthy of our ultimate allegiance. The ideal(s) we worship may or may not be religious or supernatural. We can worship family, or justice, or science, or sci-fi fandom. In the meditation, we’ll explore what it means to bring an worshipful attitude to our practice, exploring how this attitude can shift our inner landscape. In the second half, we’ll do some reflective art practice, working alone or in small groups on the interior design a fantasy shine to honour that which we hold most dear.
