The diversity of paradigm-altering gifts that Almine imparts to us is perpetually inspiring. From the extensive, intricate metaphysics that she accesses and the practical tools she has shared through her many years of teaching, to her masterfully demonstrated refinement of attitudes and states of being, she steadfastly reminds us of the home we’ve never left.
Through the treasured privilege of spending a week in silence with her, I was immeasurably moved as she brilliantly illustrated what it is to live as Adoration in Action….
Every day during our collective silence, Almine would take time to bless each of the items that students placed by her side. A palpable feeling of love, care, and reverence poured out of her, as she imbued each item with blessings. Her every movement — of patiently brushing wrinkles from a shirt and folding it perfectly — an act of poetry in motion… of reverent recognition and intimacy with the aliveness of all things. Witnessing this silent teaching — of uninhibited communication with inexhaustible Divinity; the Infinite’s infallible Self-love in action — has been a boundless, ceaseless blessing.
My eternal thanks to you, Beloved Infinite Mother, for your magnanimity and ever-present, exquisite gifts.
With Reverence, Wonder, Devotion, and Delight ~ Jodie

Thank you Jodie 💝
Thank you Jodie for sharing so beautifully the privilege of being in Almine’s presence and the gratitude for all her gifts. Adoration in action, the most beautiful feeling and attitude!
Lovely testimonial Jodie. 🙂 And that’s Killarney if I’m not mistaken. I was there at the first Killarney retreat. It was the most happiest of times for me.
Yes, I also recognized Jodie’s Killarney Ontario photos immediately. I too have so many fond memories & photos from (silent) retreats there!
