Welcome to Week 6 of Inner Excavate-along!
This week, we explore ways to invite others into our excavation adventures. As I mention in the video, we are actually already doing this through the community we've created with this read-along, so I want you to think about the small ways you can invite in connection this week and listen to what you most need at this point in your Inner Excavation journey.
In the video, I read Part 12 from Mary Oliver's poem "Flare" in The Leaf and the Cloud: A Poem.
I also challenge you to take one step toward connection. This could mean reaching out to someone and sharing a piece of your current journey. It might mean sharing a poem you've written. It might mean choosing a prompt in the chapter and asking someone to go on an adventure with you.
Over in our Flickr group, I've created a thread in the discussion board for you to reach out to one another and find a "partner" for any of the prompts in the chapter if you feel moved to do so. And feel free to create a discussion thread for things like "word lists" and other fun ideas inspired by this chapter.
And in the spirit of community this week, my publisher has two copies of Inner Excavation that we'd love to give away this week.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment sharing one way that you create space for connection in your life...how you gather with other creatives, ways you share your stories with others, and so on.
The giveaway will be open until Wednesday at 9 PM PST. I will announce the two winners Thursday.
UPDATED: The giveaway is CLOSED. But please continue to share your stories of creating space for connection in the comments.
