The Invitation

Have you ever heard the song “This little light of Mine”?  Can you envision yourself as a candle sending light out into the world?


In David Karchere’s book “Becoming a Sun” he takes that concept and magnifies it many times by telling us how we can literally become a sun and have that much influence in our world! Not only does he help us remember who we really are as energy beings but he helps us remember the significant impact we can have on our world.  And if ever there was a time when we need transformative energy in the world, it is today.

Through poetry, prose, and story David helps us remember who we are as creators and our potential when we recognize that relationship with our true selves. In the book, you are introduced to 7 steps which are built upon the 7 spirits of the Endocrine system of the body. The book is designed to be an operator's guide to the evolution of human consciousness. 
You are invited to join a small group of seekers as we read this book together over a 7 week period.  Through meditation, sharing, and thoughtful searching, we will explore how we can all ‘Become a Sun’ together and remember who we truly are and why we are here.
