  • H2H: The Study – Spiritual Disciplines: Silence

    By: Laura Wallar The spiritual discipline of silence is likely one of the most counterintuitive disciplines for our North American culture. Through the rapid advancement of technology we have gained access to and expect immediate responses from our friends, family and those we work with, but we have lost the ability to understand and appreciate […]

    H2H: The Study – Who boldly project light into the darkest of places

    By: Jessica Burns We’re seated at a table and she won’t meet my eyes. She exhales. One long, extended breath.

    H2H: The Study – Who live without borders and walls

    By: Doreen Abraham I recently started playing squash. At first I was picturing myself pulling a Lorelei & Rory from Gilmore Girls – you know, wearing sweatbands and protective goggles all ready to go, only to hit myself in the head with the ball and spend the rest of the time sitting on the floor, […]

    H2H: The Study – Who embrace the real, the messy, and the difficult

We’re not just friends, we’re ‘doing life, while ‘living authentically’ with ‘transparent vulnerability’, in our ‘organic relationships’ and things of that nature.  But what happens when life gets messy? What happens when it’s hurtful and challenging? What happens when […]
