Creating a New Myth: A Book Study on The Return of the Feminine and the World Soul  by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Facilitated by Linda Beatrice Brown with Marilyn Wolf

Six sessions, Tuesdays starting February 4
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In this 6-week book study, using Sufi mystic LlewellynVaughan-Lee’s book as our foundation, we will explore the connection between the survival of our planet, feminine wisdom, how we understand gender and behave as men and women.

  • How do we move our consciousness into a different paradigm?
  • Can we learn this new way of being in time to save our rapidly dying planet and species?
  • Why is the Feminine important in reshaping our relationship with ourselves and the world

Vaughan-Lee helps us probe into these questions which are at the heart of our critical need to heal the planet and write a new story about ourselves and our world. He tells us that without the Feminine, nothing new can be born, nothing new can come into existence – we will remain trapped in the patriarchy and materialism that is desecrating our souls and destroying our planet.

Through his lyrical and compelling writing, Vaughan-Lee brings deep insight into our current dilemma as residents of planet Earth. In his view, the world is a spiritual being, and “because we have denied the world its divinity,” it is only feminine wisdom that will save the planet and its living inhabitants.

Our study will examine how the mystical and divine Feminine holds the key to the necessary work of redeeming our souls, awakening to a new way of being, creating a new archetypal myth for survival, and participating in the transformation of the consciousness of the world.

BOUNDLESS COMPASSION: Creating a Way of Life

by Joyce Rupp

A Book Study with Harriet Bullock, MS, LMFT

Dates: 6 Thursdays ~ Feb. 6, 13, 20, 27; March 5 & 1

There is nothing wimpy or starry-eyed about compassion. Living compassionately is rarely convenient and often challenging. It requires a willingness to pay the price for being aware of suffering and doing what is possible to diminish it.
~Joyce Rupp, from Boundless Compassion

Whether you are beginning to think deeply about the virtue of compassion or have been striving to practice it on your life for some time, this book study may very well be for you. The study includes meeting as a group once a week for 6 weeks. There we will join in the “common cause” of deepening our study of compassion, share our personal experiences with living more compassionately, and enjoy the benefits of one another’s insights gained during the previous week.

Specifically our study is intended to help you:

  • Learn what it means to live a life of compassion
  • Understand the practice of self-compassion
  • Identify principal areas related to suffering and loss and the ensuing grief
  • Move from hostility to hospitality, specifically in the world of the marginalized
  • Look more keenly at what we have failed or forgotten to notice about the suffering of our planet and the causes of that pain
  • Reflect on our mentors of compassion as an inspiration and stimulus for hope

Creating Inner Space @ Chapel at Congregational United Church of Christ

Creating Inner Space

A 4-Session Class Facilitated by Ken Frazier, M.Ed., LPC

This class has 4 sessions. Please see the dates below.

“The mind is great when used as a tool and not so great when it is calling the shots.”
–Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Inner Peace for Busy People and The Power of the Mind to Heal

  • Do you want to stop your distressing and painful thoughts but can’t?
  • Are you stuck in a cycle of emotional reactivity which is creating chaos in your life?
  • Would you like to be in harmony with yourself, living with peace and joy?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions, then this class is probably for you. Creating Inner Space is designed to teach you how to observe yourself and create distance between yourself and the thoughts and emotions which are the real cause of your psychological, emotional, spiritual and even physical suffering.

As we develop the ability to observe the thoughts and emotions which determine how we experience our lives, we are able to choose our responses and end the cycle of reactivity. This reactivity is our “karma” which holds us in painful patterns, and the ability to consciously observe and choose the correction is our spiritual birthright to live with presence, peace and joy.

Participants will learn the fundamental beliefs of ego and the process of non-identification with these beliefs. The dynamic of “choose once again” will be the portal for learning how to consciously choose to diminish your suffering and create a new story and script for your life.

Specifically, over the course of 4 Saturday sessions, we will cover:
Session 1 – Feb. 22: Cognitive Mechanics: The Dynamics of the Inner Voice of Ego
Session 2 – March 28: Ego States: Our Internal Family System
Session 3 – April 25: Schemas: The Stories that Run Our Lives
Session 4 – May 30: Mindfulness and Meditation: Breaking Free from the Illusion of Ego

Cancellation Policy:
If you cancel before 1 week prior to the event, you will get a refund minus a $10 processing fee. If you cancel within 1 week of the event, there is no refund. If you cancel due to unavoidable circumstances, please discuss this with us.
