We promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than we take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that we are the temporary guardians of all we possess and to stand ready to share when love calls. ~ MorningStar Community Guiding Principle
Belonging is a basic human need. It is why community is the most powerful collective potential for creating good in our personal and shared worlds.
Community life is a reflection of the values and life practices that make up the cultural fabric of our collective society. When we act from a place of conscious intention balanced with instinctual intelligence, trusting in the Goodness of Creation, we can enjoy helping create a world of peace and plenty for our global children and their childrens children.
Community life touches all aspects of how we live from Birth unto Death. We face major decisions daily as we seek balance between personal responsibility and faith in the wisdom of instinctual living.
We have applied these basic principles to. . .
It is not always easy for us to let what is natural be natural to honor a knowing that existed before we did. Often it is even more difficult to preserve it. And if it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our lives, our policies, our hospitals, our schools, or our churches. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.
Your contribution to MorningStar Community helps sustain the Holyland and our Spiritual Centre for Instinctual Living. Our centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, culturally sensitive natural family planning, Spanish, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats. In addition, MorningStar Community participates yearly in Mission work, both in Mexico and at the local community level in Missouri.
Our mission holywork teaches us the meaning of wealth of spirit and love that abides amidst great poverty. Keeping to the ways of the Simple and Sacred is how we honor the wisdom and skills of our indigenous kinsters and preserve their knowledge for our children.
