I am Paul Richard. I lead Journey to BE Still spiritual formation practices.
Come, let’s journey together…
I am someone who has been created in the image of God (along with every person who is reading this) seeking to live into the true expression of who God created me to be. I invite anyone to join me in this journey. It won’t be easy. You will have to deal with the monkeys dancing around your head as well as the restlessness of your body. This is the journey toward stillness, the Journey to BE Still. It is a journey, a very long daily journey. It is a path that we walk together. And it is good!
I invite anyone to join me in this journey, regardless of your faith (or non-faith) background…Christian, Buddhist, Atheist, Hindu, Jewish, gay, straight, etc. I come to this journey as a follower of Christ, but I welcome the dialogue with anyone willing to be on the journey to be still.
With what do I come to this journey? Most basic, I come with a desire to be…to be the true person God created me to be. I am training to be a spiritual director through the Sustainable Faith School. I am a yoga teacher, primarily working with people living with disabilities. I am an Opening Yoga Instructor through MindBody Solutions and have 4+ years of leading adaptive yoga for people with disabilities. I am a classical guitarist and composer/song writer. I enjoy hiking on the trails I have made on my property as well as any other trails. I run (slowly) and bike (a little faster). I care about people struggling with poverty and who live on the fringe of community. My most formational relationship is with with my wife of 34 years, Lyn. My son Austin and his wife Halie are joys in my life.
So come, journey with me. Tell me what you desire and what you bring to the journey. And together let us be grateful for the goodness that surrounds us day after day.
