Daily Divine: When is it important to seek your tribe? – SARA WISEMAN
After my near death experience in 2000, everything changed.
In that moment I knew God, in a way I never had before. And in that moment, my whole life crumbed in front of me, like one of those action movies where the road falls away even as the hero is running on it.
Everything changed. Everything fell away. I began to search and seek. I started going to spiritual workshops and events. I began to try out all kinds of things I’d never done before.
At first it was scary. Nobody in my then circle of soccer moms was going to ecstatic dance, for example. Nobody in my then Catholic community was going to The Esalen Institute. It was weird to be different, outside, ostracized even.
And then, as I found my way, it was exhilarating—there was a feeling of finally finding my tribe, a sense of coming home. What a gift those ecstatic dance and meditation and kirtan and intuitive communities gave me at that time in my life! It was some of the greatest support I have known.
