What is Tapestry Life Resources?

Tapestry Life Resources gets its name from ancient art weavings of the world's many cultures. A tapestry is made of many threads of different textures and colors that are woven together to create a beautiful whole. Our lives are also woven of many threads– some are rough and knotty; others are fine and delicate. Some are sturdy and difficult to break while others fragile and easily stressed beyond their limits.


Together, however, the strands of our lives also form a pattern, a design based on a Divine plan; woven together, they form a thing of infinite beauty — our Essential selves.

The goal of Tapestry Life Resources is to help us discover the pattern in the warp and weft of our lives so that we may see the Divine design at work in all that we are and do. By providing the space for silence and contemplation and the closeness of a supportive community, Tapestry hopes to join people of all walks of life and provide a vision of who we really are and all we might become.

The pattern in our lives is perfected by resonance with the universal Source, which we attain in our physical bodies, our emotional intelligence, our mental balance, and thus our spiritual connection through greater coherence with that Source.
