Spring 2020 Programs
We are welcoming a new decade, 2020. As I look at that number I see the call for balance. Our culture seems to be built on establishing polarities: Intuition and knowledge, male and female, logical and creative, inner and outer, life and death. Our programs this spring will support our need to dialogue with perceived opposites to bring balance to our inner lives and to the world. We welcome the feminine to bring balance to unbridled patriarchy, through our Black Madonna Retreat, our Full Moon Circles and a book study of Mirabai Starr’s new book, Wild Mercy. Jungian, Charlene Henry returns to teach about the nature of Alchemy, soul transformation, that will help us merge some of the oppositional elements within our own beings.
Our 3-part series on death seeks to bring balance to our ideas of life and mortality, so one complements the other. Note our programs with the earth symbol that celebrate Earth Day, a time to remember how important balance is for our natural resources and our people.
Balance is also about giving and receiving, please take time to make your donation to The Red Shoes so you and others can receive the bounty of spiritual nourishment and support offered. We are feeding the hungry: people who are hungry for community, hungry to awaken, hungry to recover, and hungry to try to make sense of life’s challenges. We need your commitment today.
Thank you and Happy New Year,
Wendy Herschman, Executive Director
