Conversations with Wisdom: Re-membering Feminine Voices of Antiquity
This contemplative writing group will focus on the voices of women mystics, poets, and sages throughout the ages as a means of connecting with our own inner wisdom. In this eight-week series, we turn to the words of women from antiquity for inspiration. Visit the writings of the first recorded poet, the Sumerian Priestess Enheduanna, the reasoning of Hypatia of Alexandria, the love language of Sappho, and the teachings of the Desert Mothers, among others. This ancient wisdom will be the access point for our own deepening and understanding.
Each session, we’ll use gentle guided meditation, quiet inquiry and contemplation, followed by personal writing and journaling, to allow the deepest part of ourselves to speak. We’ll then gather together to share our gifts of wisdom with one another through the process of Sacred Witnessing.
Here’s what previous participants have to say:
“I really didn’t know what to expect, but this was exactly what I needed. Loved the mix of mindfulness, writing and sharing.”
“This series of workshops was exactly what I needed to get through the last, cold dash of winter. It provided a weekly respite with like minds that included thoughtful reflection and insights.”
No prior experience with meditation or contemplative writing is needed. Please come as you are!
(Please don’t let cost be a barrier to your participation. If you are truly in need, please contact us so that we can make arrangements to help accommodate your participation.)
