Notes

Bobbi Parish uses research and writing, specifically, the construction of a personal "sacred text," coupled with intent and"Receptive Seeking" as a way to encourage connection, expand awareness, expanded compassion, and so on.[1].

Parish writes that the greatest impact of her practices has been "the healing of my connection with Spirit." [2]

For guidance on engaging creativity, perhaps as a step towards connection see Julia Cameron [3] "These daily morning meanderings are not meant to be art. Or even writing. . . . Pages are meant to be, simply, the act of moving the hand across the page and writing down whatever comes to mind. Nothing is too petty, too silly, too stupid, or too weird to be included."
