WOMEN’S SACRED CIRCLE: September 10th; The Haven 5:30 -7:30pm,  Course of Study: Rise Up And Call Her Name: LILITH.  During this course of study, we will learn about a variety of cultural traditions that honor goddesses and esteem women. We will also become acquainted with some of the beliefs that are associated with these traditions and how varied spiritual practices stimulate personal inner journeys. During this opening session, we will explore what it means to take a journey to Earth-based spiritual traditions around the globe. Because woman honoring religious imagery has often been devalued, we will together reclaim the first wife of Adam, known as Lilith.
