Cakes for the Queen Of Heaven (Wed. 14 Nov, 2012 6:45 pm - 10:30 pm)

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven: In Ancient Times - Part I

Wednesdays – Oct 10, Oct 17, Oct 24, Nov 7, Nov 14, Nov 21, 2012 - 6:45–9:30 pm.


Cakes for the Queen of Heaven is a woman-honouring course that’s not just about history and archaeology; it’s also about women’s issues in a patriarchal society, and women’s spiritual heritage. “Cakes” was developed as part of the Unitarian Universalist (UU) adult religious education program. Come and participate in this joyful and educational workshop series where you will be invited to share your own experiences and beliefs. Together we’ll create sacred space and work to change our stories.

 

By popular request, this year we welcome men, as well as women. There is much that we, not just as men but as whole evolving people, can re-examine, re-learn and realize through the Cakes for the Queen of Heaven program. How might our perspectives on life, history and the divine be enriched by exploring these teachings? Imagine how life would have been different for our fathers and grandfathers if they had known the ways of the mothers and grandmothers.

 

Fee: $30. Sliding scale. Nobody will miss this due to financial barriers. We encourage those who are able to donate a little more.

 

Facilitators: Ryan Cvirik & Debbie Kirkland
