The chalice, the flame

You are the flame of the chalice. You dare to be seen, to flicker and dance your beautiful, vulnerable, dance. You have come alive to the possibility of the world. Your warmth embraces those around you. Your light illuminates our sacred purpose.

You are the flame in the chalice. You burn brightly because you are safe and held, contained by our beloved community. You sit, deeply and mysteriously rooted in our shared wisdom and consciousness. You are part of a constellation, a single light emerging from, and forever embraced by, the collective brightness of our being.
