Come join a circle of women’s wisdom and mutual support. Give yourself the gift of slowing down. Catch your breath, connect with other women, connect with the Divine.

At each gathering, we will have time for prayer, meditation, and reflection through various stories, readings, creativity, music, and (weather permitting) time spent outdoors.

This year we will read and reflect on Spiritual Practices for the Brain by Anne Kertz Kernion.

Join us as we take the journey to grow and share our lives with each other.

We will meet on eight Saturdays. You can join us for one, some, or all sessions.
