Searching the Shadows

Join in person or click here to join us on Zoom.

There are shadows in everyone’s hearts and minds, places that were born from trauma, fear, grief and loss; places from which we avert our eyes and pretend they don’t exist. We’ll explore the shadow work of unearthing those hidden places to find light and healing.

Womyn Have Always Worked

The mythology of “separate spheres” for the work performed by womyn and men was created in the Victorian period in England, and used to justify unequal treatment of the genders throughout society. Let us explore the role of womyn in the world, and pledge to undo systems of gender inequality.

Whose Freedom is It, Anyway?

The Declaration of Independence states that “all [persons have] certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” But one person’s freedom may conflict with another’s values. How do we balance personal freedom with the societal good? Who decides? Can one size fit all?

Juneteenth Matters – for Everyone

It’s the newest national holiday. It’s a day to commemorate the liberation of enslaved people in America. It’s been a huge celebration for the black people of Texas since 1865. But how should we, as white people, descendants of those who supported and benefitted from chattel slavery, honor this day? It’s a party in the black community – but do we have a right to join in?

The spring season is ushered in by the Pagan celebration of Imbolc, marking the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Celebrating the pagan goddess Brigid, Goddess of fire, healing and fertility, at Imbolc life quickens beneath the surface, as the seeds of rebirth germinate in the dark. Let us reflect in this time on our own regeneration, as we find new hope in the promise of Spring.

The History Books Lied

Click here to join us on Zoom Sunday at 10:15a.m.

The Confederates lost the Civil War, everybody knows that. But what if that’s not wholly true? What if the echoes of history which are reverberating today are really the remains of the Confederacy fighting on a different battlefield? What can we do to finally win the Civil War & live up to the promise of our nation?

Finding the Shire

J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece “The Lord of the Rings” is much more than a simple fairy tale. As Tolkien watched industrialization overtake the lush Midlands where he grew up, a nascent environmental passion was born. One of the last chapters of the Lord of the Rings – the Scouring of the Shire – became Tolkien’s own statement on man’s stewardship of the earth. Join us as we explore the wonders of the Shire, the threat faced by that small corner of Middle Earth and Tolkien’s challenge to us to protect what is good & green in our own environment.
