Fathers are a special breed They are there to guide and lead To inspire and protect Point out cause and the effect Separate the wrong from right Show when it’s OK to fight Be the man who’s standing strong And kiss the boo-boo so it’s gone Fathers play so many roles They help us achieve our goals While sometimes forgoing theirs Because all they do is care So today, we as a nation Offer thanks in dedication As collectively we strive And give our dads the Highest Five!
For the past 800 years, Saint Francis of Assisi has been penetrating the hearts of people from every culture and across every spiritual tradition. Francis' two most famous writings -- Instrument of Thy Peace and Canticle of the Sun -- together form the foundation of this course. These beautiful, elegant prayers offer us a rich doorway to Francis' mentorship, love and support. Each lesson offers practical wisdom, deep guided meditation, and simple yet powerful assignments to help you examine your inner world, open your spiritual heart, and strengthen your connection to the Divine. Again and again, you will be coached and guided to effectively call upon Francis to bring you inner support, guidance, and healing. This course includes the Story of Saint Francis by Mirabai Starr; 21 profound guided meditations by Max Highstein; and practical wisdom and direction to help you apply what you're learning to your every day life.
