Cunning Wisdom:


Hebrew Midwives and Other Examples of the Trickster Spirit in Biblical Narrative


Thursdays, October 9, 16, and 23, 6:30-8:30 pm

Cost: $90.00

Beginning with Shiphrah and Puah, the Hebrew midwives who tricked Pharaoh to save children, this Jewish-Christian conversation will explore this vitally important, fascinating and under-appreciated theme in our shared and distinct traditions. Using Rabbinic midrashim or commentary and the parables of Jesus that reflect and value this aspect of human-divine dealings, we will tangle with the problems and possibilities these crafty characters pose to how we understand the Bible, God's will, and how to live.

Becoming One with the One:

An Introduction to Christian Meditation


Come explore Main’s teachings on meditation as a way of contemplative prayer, its roots in the Christian tradition, the practice of meditation, and its power to compel us beyond our place of prayer to compassionate action in the world.  Each session will include presentations, discussion, and times of meditation together.

"Love reaches out to communicate, to share, to widen the realm of its own communion." ~John Main

Midwifery: Wisdom for Spiritual Renewal

Tuesdays, October 14, 21, & 28, 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Cost: $75.00 for the series; $30 per session

What in you—and in our world—most wants to be born? And how will you participate in that vulnerable and messy birthing process? In this three-part workshop, we’ll apply the wisdom of midwifery to our spiritual journeys. Traditional midwives are able to coax out new life through pain and fear and great risk, and so have profound wisdom to offer the life of the soul. Using writing exercises, birth narratives, midwifery lore, film, art-making, and dance, Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew will guide participants (men and women) to tap natural birth as a metaphor for spiritual growth. We can all become midwives to the soul.
