Beginning with a brief review of the magic of celebration, Lazaris suggests that both honor and respect are integral, perhaps essential, to profound celebration — celebration that can change our lives. He then ventures on to explore respect with its key components of understanding, mature judgment, valuing or esteeming, and trust. Beyond this foundation, the magic of respect lies in admiration, deference, and aspiration. The discussion continues with outlining what we honor in others and in ourselves: presence and voice, love, gratitude, hope, intensity, spirit, and expressions of freedom. Somewhere in the mix there is an unbridled magic that we can find through a step-by-step process — a beautiful working of magic. Beyond finding such a magic, we can engage it. Lazaris concludes this evening with the powerful Finding the Unbridled Magic of Respecting and Honoring Meditation.
