A weekend virtual workshop exploring our relationship with the Sacred Feminine
The idea of meeting Mary wherever you are actually came to me many years ago. For the past 10 years, I have been offering a class called Meeting Mary in Chartres, France where Her presence is palpable. In that class, we meet her in the cathedral, on the labyrinth, in song, in ritual, and in Her history. But over the years, I have noticed that I end up meeting Her wherever I go.
The Mary we will encounter is not only the Biblical Mary (confined to a particular religion), but a universal embodiment of the Sacred Feminine attuned to the world we are living in just now.
Since travel is out of the question for this year, I am offering this 8 hour experience over the course of a weekend to explore what it means to truly meet Her. In my experience She always meets us – in our homes, in our hearts, in our prayers. She is ever present, fiercely compassionate, unconditionally loving, and constant.
We will begin on Friday August 28 - 5:30-7:30 PM PDT - setting our sacred circle, building our altars, and writing our prayers for the experience.
On Saturday and Sunday, we will meet from 3-6 PDT each day, learning the history of the Sacred Feminine through lecture and images , sharing writing practice, exploring the rosary and finger walking the labyrinth,
Reawakening to the principles and values of the Sacred Feminine is what this moment in our history is calling for.
- Have a finger labyrinth available or download a print copy here.
- Build an altar for yourself with a candle and flowers and whatever sacred object represents Her.
- Use a computer or laptop so we can see each other on the Zoom platform.
The class size will be limited to one Zoom screen - 23 of you – so we can all see each other on one screen.
Sliding Scale cost of $159/$199/$240
This will be the launch for a series of study circle sessions on Meeting the Sacred Feminine -- spanning the year on Zoom. We will meet 9 times, once a month, for 2 hours, exploring 9 different female deities and the archetypal qualities they embody. Our small cohort will have the opportunity of creating a circle of exploration and sisterhood, listening for the perennial wisdom of deep feminine to chart our courses for personal and planetary healing.
Sunday afternoons from 1-3 pm pacific. Must be purchase the whole series. Sliding scale of $360/$460/$560. Registration coming soon.
