    In this group, find a safe place to share your stories and deepen your spiritual journey.

    Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. An outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood — where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned — Cora kills a young white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.  

    Cora encounters different worlds at each stage of her journey. As Whitehead’s narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day.

    All women are invited to these discussions held in the William Reif Gallery to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.

    Please register by 6/9.

    Facilitator:  Masha Erofeeva

    Empowerment is defined as “authority or power given to someone to do something.” Masha invites you to empower yourself with her as your guide. True empowerment is a life long journey. When we operate without stopping to assess where we are headed or where we came from, we may get off course and feel as though we are losing inspiration and lacking luster in our daily life. Masha believes that women are outrageously resilient, but often seem to put their own needs last. Society and culture may put additional expectations on women that we habitually adhere to, sometimes without even realizing it. In order to empower oneself, we must first know who we are. Women have many roles and often wear many hats — daughters, sisters, mothers, partners, caregivers, but what about our identity as women?

    Connect to your true essence as a woman for a more balanced, meaningful and joyful life. What would it be like to re-assess the narrative which is currently navigating your life?

    This will be a four week course broken up into these sessions:

    Session 1: What are the pillars of your life?  When we make decisions based on our strongest values, we are at peace with ourselves and our choices. In this session you will explore, identify and re-assess your current values.

    Session 2: Who are we really? Sharing your story  When we share our stories with one another, we hear them differently. It is only when our body and mind is in harmony that we feel truly connected to our intuition. This session will be focused on exploring and applying the concept of mindfulness by getting in touch with our five senses.

    Session 3: What is your vision?  Just like a snake shedding its skin, we must from time to time take a look at what end goal is really driving us. This session will explore the narratives that we have been living by and re-write the narratives which no longer serve us.

    Session 4: Create a game plan for your vision.  This session will focus on setting real, attainable goals for our future. We will have a brainstorming session on how to take action and make our dreams a reality.

    This will be an interactive process group where we will be sharing our experiences, investigating what in life truly brings us joy, and learning new techniques such as assertive communication, mindful meditation, breathing exercises, journaling and much more.

    We are delighted to be able to offer a once a month support group that focuses on sharing from the perspective of our soul and higher self. This group will work equally well for those who already have information about chakras and would like further exploration, and for those who are new to these ideas. The purpose of the Chakra Club is to help us find deeper meaning, wholeness, and healing--as we tap into our higher consciousness in sharing our personal experiences and combined wisdom. The chakras connect our minds and bodies with our souls and higher consciousness. As we bring healing to our inner selves, our true soul-selves shine forth; and we increase our ability to create lives that work and are truly fulfilling.

    People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But an old ice rink is the reason townsfolk believe tomorrow will be better. Their junior ice hockey team has a shot at winning the national semi-finals. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through town, leaving no resident unaffected.

    Beartown explores hopes that bring a community together, secrets that tear it apart, and courage of an individual to go against the grain.

    All women are invited to these discussions held in the William Reif Gallery to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.

    As a pastor working in a neighborhood with the highest concentration of murderous gang activity in Los Angeles, Gregory Boyle created an organization to provide jobs, job training, and encouragement so that young people could work together and learn the mutual respect that comes from collaboration. 

    Tattoos on the Heart is a breathtaking series of parables distilled from his 20 years in the barrio. Arranged by theme and filled with sparkling humor and glowing generosity, these down-to-earth, utterly heartening essays offer a stirring look at how full our lives could be if we could find the joy in loving others and in being loved unconditionally. 

    With Gregory Boyle’s guidance, we can recognize our own wounds in the broken lives and daunting struggles of the men and women in these parables and learn to find joy in all of the people around us.
