 Fall Quarter

The Miracles Course Fall Quarter is all about 

maintaining peace in the face of change, trusting life and achieving personal mastery.

  • Are you experiencing a high degree of change in your life?
  • Do you feel stalled and ready for change?
  • Do you have an interest in healing or what lies beyond the veil of death?
  • Do you have difficulty with the darkness of winter months?
  • Are you prone to winter time colds or are you dealing with a serious illness?
  • Do you have trouble letting go of control and trusting the process of life?
  • Would you like to feel safe and at peace in the midst of change?
  • Are you ready to move beyond transient successes to achieve true personal mastery?

 

If any of this rings true for you, then the Fall Session of the Miracles Course may be just what you need.

 

Please join us!

Are you ready to dig deeper into your personal journey to psychological wholeness? We will immerse in a book study based on the work of Carl Jung. The author, Edward Edinger, analyzes the individuation process, and uses symbolism in religion, myth, dreams, and art to illuminate the path. Discussing the stages in this transformative process, he relates them to our search for meaning. As we integrate this eye-opening path to Self, with Joan McCaskill as our guide, we gain perspectives that make a more authentic life possible.

Feminine Courage

Sunday September 12     

2:00 - 3:30pm

 

As the our world and life we know are being chaotically disrupted everywhere we look, we are being called to stand and face all the loss, death, and uncertainty with a courage that has never been asked of us before. To have courage means to live from your whole heart, and in order to do this, you need to be living in, and from your whole body, firmly grounded on this Earth with a living faith and hope. Courage asks us to be with the reality of what lies before us, and she also asks us to know that dissolution is a necessary part of birthing something new and wondrous for humanity. Together, we will learn how to navigate these times; feeling the loss and chaos, but not emotionally drowning in it; opening to the greater wonder for humanity and our Earth and consciously living it in our lives here and now. 

 

Facilitated by Rev. Meghan Don, an award-winning author, evolutionary mystic, retreat presenter and spiritual mentor. Her work raises the feminine confidence in women and feminine consciousness in men. He latest book is Feminine Courage: Remembering Your Voice and Vision Through a Retelling of Our Myths and Inner Stories.
