I was at a conference recently and the facilitator put us in groups to do a project where we had to use 20 uncooked strings of spaghetti, a yard of string, a yard of masking tape, and one marshmallow to build the tallest structure which would hold a marshmallow at the top.
As the new year arrives, it’s a natural time to start thinking of practices that will help us improve our lives. Our first inclination is to start with how we can improve our bodies, so we make resolutions regarding our diets and good intentions to exercise. We also realize that we need to nurture our minds, so we observe the practice of reading a new book or taking a class. But, it’s much harder to identify ways to attend to our spirituality.
