Some books are meant to be savored and discussed among a circle of friends to maximize their impact and to stimulate new understanding and growth.
Every season (with the exception of summer), Shakti in the Mountains promises to do just that: creating a circle where new ideas are encouraged and personal journeys are supported.
To kick off our book study this fall, we turn to Mirabai Starr’s book “Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics.” This phenomenal read, as one reviewer so eloquently summarized, “reminds us that women need no spiritual authority to connect us to our natural wisdom stream, no special permission to embrace the fullness of our humanity with the fullness of our divinity.” ~ Vera de Chalambert
Doesn’t that sound delicious?
If you think so, then please join us on October 18 for our first gathering. Over the course of the season, we will meet a total of 6 times. Each time we meet a different section of the book will be studied and discussed. (See the itinerary below.) Participants are responsible for their own copy of the book.
The study will begin at 11 am and last approximately an hour. You are invited to bring your lunch and stay after the discussion to socialize.
Women only. No registration needed. Drop-in as your schedule allows. Donations of $5 per meeting are encouraged.
