Blessing the Space Between Us 

May the presence and power of spirit surround, support and guide us and keep us safe.

May we remember the deep love we have for each other.

May we greet our emerging differences with tenderness and tolerance.

May we call on our courage to speak our truth, and reveal our vulnerabilities.

May we reflect back to others without blaming or shaming.

May we hear the truth others speak with compassion.

May we have patience with their process and emergence.

May we pause, breathe, and let ourselves settle.

May we stand in love and strength together.

May our rough edges be doorways to healing.
