"Sacred is not a special place, or a ritual, or a particular group of people. It's more normal than that. There are many places and rituals that do feel sacred, and many of us seek these out...but I think it's important to notice that the ritual isn't sacred, it just opens that door to the experience. It isn't only the place that is sacred, we are." Margaret Wheatley
BONE AND SEED: Nurturant Truths in Five Voices: a series
Getting “right down to the seed and bones of everything,” we will explore the voices of five visionary women whose ways of seeing and being in the world beckon us to inhabit essential mysteries, depth and truths that will expand our ways of knowing in these threshold times. Over the course of the series, we will engage the writings and the power of these wisdom-keepers to shape our conversation, reflection and creative response, which will include writing, ritual, and art-making.
