Where do you go when your life is shaken and you realize it is God who is doing the shaking? Not the god of the Bible or the Koran or any other manmade holy books - but the GOD of Generation, Operation, and Destruction who runs the entire universe. Welcome to the virtual school like no other, providing a spiritual pathway to serenity and contentment. You must be here now or you would be someplace else. This school of Theofatalismô is like no other because it is for all people. Whatever your spiritual belief system is, this course embraces them all. Everyone is a student and no one can resign or be expelled for any reason. Some are in kindergarten, some are in grade school, some are in high school, and some are beyond in their spiritual walk through life. The universe and all it contains is its campus, and its central theme is "feel good inside no matter what happens outside." For the students who are ready, the teacher has come. Her name is Sedona.
Its symbol is the Chartres labyrinth tiled into the Cathedral of Notre Dame. With its roots in ancient mythology the design reappears throughout history in different forms. Unlike a maze, which is a primitive symbol of chaos intended to confuse and frustrate, the labyrinth provides a clear and undistorted pathway to the center, which is its distinctive feature. The practice of labyrinth walking integrates the body with the mind and the mind with the spirit. There are three stages to the walk: releasing on the way in, receiving in the center and returning when you follow the path back out of the labyrinth. At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a greater acceptance of who you are.
Theofatalism says that we all are on the pathway of life...exactly where we need to be here and now. On this website you will find its five Principles of Theofatalism as explored in Voices of Sedona, instructions for group leaders, and a series of essays that will help to relate the Principles of Theofatalism to contemporary issues. Once developed, the ability to see God in everything opens new spiritual awareness that transcends church dogma and prepares one to live fully in reality.
