Taking the Next Step

Are you searching for a path, trying to decide what to do next?

Start close in,
don’t take
the second step
or the third,
start with the first
close in…
~David Whyte

Six and a half years ago, Peter Munson heard about our dream to create a supportive community of people interested in finding their own inner voices and following their own wisdom.   He had a pivotal role in getting the Creative Life Center started by doing the first thing, close in.

You can hear more of the story in this short video.Video still image of a smiling woman in front of a picture of a forest path. There is a video start control in the middle.

Fast forward to now.   Peter is bringing one of his dreams to life.  It’s been eleven years in the making.  He has already taken so many steps, each one close in to the previous.

On March 4th, Peter will start walking across the country raising money for organizations and ministries that serve children.   You can learn more about what he is doing and why here: www.6millionstepsforkids.org

We thank Peter for supporting our dream and honor him for following his!

Are you searching for your next step?   Your inner voices know how to guide you.  If you are looking for ways to hear them or community to support you, the Creative Life Center is here to help!

Start right now
take a small step
you can call your own
don’t follow
someone else’s
be humble
and focused,
start close in…
