Join us for a new Women's Spirituality Group. We are not a study group nor a discussion or self-help group. What we are is a sacred circle of spiritual women connecting with each other while exploring our past and present experiences and beliefs in a non-judgmental, loving and accepting environment. We begin with a guided meditation, a short teaching and then a question. Your response is your truth, your Torah. We learn from your sharing. The topics are varied... Judaism, women's issues, holidays, Torah. We plan to meet monthly, early evening for those who work. Sessions will be facilitated by Myrna Wolf, who has participated and led spiritual groups for the last 30 years. If you have any questions, please contact Myrna for more information at myrna.wolf3333@gmail.com. Registration is necessary by February 8.
