Please join your friends at Well-Read Mom for a day of reflection and recollection on ways we can strengthen our natural ability to receive well and generously, that we might be nourished for our critically important work in the world.

We will be drawing directly from Reed of God and the work of Caryll Houselander, as well as other notable works.
