Meets in the Art Womb with Priestess Jennifer Mantle.  $25 for herchurch folks, $35 for general public  DATES TBA.

Example:   Join Jennifer for afternoon of creative introspection. We’ll invite SoulCollage® cards for and reclaim the parts of ourselves that have been silenced, abandoned or disenfranchised, inspired by the patriarchal misinterpretation and demonization of Mary Magdalene, though every card that wants to be made is welcome. All welcome, no art experience needed. An intro to the process, materials and munchies provided.

 

CRYSTAL REIKI, DATE TBA

meets in Kuan Yin room: $175 (includes over 40 crystals for you to keep!)

Crystals and Reiki are a truly wonderful complement of each other- a literally natural combination! Priestess Jennifer Mantle is wonderfully  passionate about crystals and absolutely loves using them in Reiki healing. Each crystal becomes an additional Reiki practitioner! The result is astoundingly gentle yet deep and resonant healing. Participants must have Reiki Level I or higher. Ask Jennifer for more info!

 

4th SUNDAY DISCUSSION GROUP

will meet in the Gallery Annex on Sunday November 26 to read and discuss issues pertinent to women and/in politics.

WHAT HAPPENED by Hillary Rodham Clinton which will be our basis for the November discussion. Clinton takes us inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

Soup and/or salad will be available.  Some copies of the book are available.  Check the book nook in the entryway.   We meet from 12:15 – 1:45 PM.

GODDESS PAINTING CLASS

Paint your own sacred icons of the Divine Feminine  even if you’ve never painted before!

third Sundays, 1-4pm at herchurch

$25 for herchurch folks, $35 for others

supplies included

This class will enable you to approach painting in a prayerful, sacred practice, overcoming the inner critic to create a personal, sacred icon!

Katie Ketchum, trained in Shiloh Sophia’s Color of Woman method, will provide instruction based on this powerful technique and guide us in writing chants from our paintings, and Jennifer Mantle, well versed in the method and in holding sacred space, will help create a container in which participants can feel safe to play, grow and explore!

There will also be an optional, free online Goddess Painting Sanctuary on Facebook for participants to share about the goddess we are communing with, connect with each other, and share their process. Painting technique will be taught in person during class, with additional tutoring available from Katie by arrangement.

Join us for this powerful, prayerful, playful, soul-enlivening adventure!

Sessions are the third Sunday of each month, 12:45pm-3:45pm in the Art Womb at herchurch, 678 Portola Dr. SF. Supplies are included, however, you may wish to bring a snack, a bigger canvas (small canvases provided), any favorite brushes and a journal.
