Welcome to Beguine Again!
Beguine Again!, after the medieval Beguine community that came together to serve and to support one another in a spirit of wHolyness, justice, mercy and compassion. As with the original Beguine community, we focus on service and matters of the spirit. Take a breath with us, slow down, and renew - Beguine Again!
Beguine Again is the vision of Methodist Minister, Terri Stewart. It was founded by her in 2008 as an interfaith platform for clerics and lay teachers to offer spiritual practices for renewal. It has a strong foundation of followers and is meant to - and does - connect us to one another in fellowship. It nurtures gratitude and mindfulness in the context of our complex modern lives through practice and ritual, especially encouraging Daily Practice (click on the tab above).
In the spirit of peace, justice and sustainability, Jamie Dedes, a poet and writer, formed The Bardo Group in 2011 as meeting ground - a collective - of writers, poets, story-tellers, artists and photographers, musicians, clerics and spiritual teachers from the world over who hold in common their love of sacred space as it expresses itself in the arts.
In October 2014, in the support of shared ideals and values, the Beguine Again and The Bardo Group came together to produce the BeZine, a monthly online publication offered in the shared spirit of peace to all its readers for free. The BeZine addresses a different but timely subject each month. The zine can be accessed directly through Beguine Again.
Again, welcome to Beguine Again. We are happy you have stopped by.
Explore our labor of love. Enjoy and let us know what you think.
In the spirit of peace, community and respect for all,
Terri Stewart, Beguine Again Founder, Jamie Dedes, Managing Editor, “The BeZine”, The Bardo Group: John Anstie, Naomi Baltuck, James Cowles, Michael Dickel, Priscilla Galasso, Chrysty Hendrick, Joseph Hesch, Ruth Jewell, Charles Martin, Liliana Negoi, Lana Phillips, Donna Pierce, Corina Ravenscraft, Colin Jon david Stewart, Kennedy Stewart, and Michael Watson
