Women Sharing Spiritual Journeys: Mi’kmaq, Christian & other paths 2012
Nov 2 – Nov 4, 2012
Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 1:00 PM
Welcome to a weekend where we will reflect on the stories of our spiritual journeys and on how they give us courage for our lives. Together we will discover what supports and guides us through the joys and struggles of our journeys as women. We will sing, dance, and sit in circle time, to respectfully listen to and experience the commonalities and differences that speak of who we are. We will have opportunities to speak and to listen, and to build relationships that will guide our ways forward as women, through sharing deep truths from our unique spiritual paths.
Program Cost: $335 ($180 tuition+$155 meals/accommodations)
