It’s that time of year again!
Part of the preparations during the season of Advent include finding gifts to give to loved ones. I think gift giving in itself can be a spiritual practice, because it invites us to honor the other and give from the heart—both things that draw us closer to the Divine.
Here are some ideas for the Seeker of the Sacred on your list:
This collection of hand-lettered, illustrated prints serve as the perfect reminder for the Seeker of the Sacred. Buy one or all three! Bonus: they’re digital downloads, which means you receive your purchase immediately and can print as many copies as you want. Ten gifts for the price of one? Yes, please!
This one is straight from my own list. I’ve gone through Danielle LaPorte’s The Desire Map each year since it came out, and in 2015 I plan to do the same. Having this practice as a part of my everyday life through the Desire Day Planner will help remind me of my intentions each day.
This November I did my first 21-Day Meditation Experience with Oprah and Deepak Chopra through the Chopra Center and loved it. If you’re interested in meditation, this series of guided meditations is a great place to start and something you’ll return to over and over again.
I just picked this up at the bookstore last week and wish I would have done so sooner. I’ve been carrying John O’Donohue’s blessings in my heart ever since I bought his book, To Bless the Space Between Us, last year. Now I can truly carry them with me on these beautiful cards—one for each week of the year!
This necklace from Jess Lively is a great way to keep your intention close to you each day. I love how the braille side incorporates a sense of touch and makes the message just for you in times when you need it most.
I haven’t taken an e-course from Spirituality and Practice yet, but with their amazing line-up featuring the best spiritual teachers of our time, I’m dying to! An e-course gift certificate is like giving a treasure chest to the Seeker of the Sacred (but way cheaper).
It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a year since I released Pilgrim Principles! This seven-week journey right at home guides the reader as they apply the practice of pilgrimage to daily life. With the new year approaching, this is the perfect gift for the Seeker of the Sacred who wants to start the year off with intention.
8. time to simply be
Something that is free for you but oh-so-valuable for the Seeker of the Sacred is time to simply be. This year, get creative and give your loved one the gift of time to rest and wonder by getting out of the city for the day or taking over their responsibilities so they can spend some time in silence and solitude.
