Women's Wisdom Village | Sun. 11/8/2020
Sometimes, while navigating our lives, it’s a good idea to drop anchor and lower our sails. In times of trouble, find your port, batten the hatches, and ride out the storm. Remember, listening to the song of the Sirens will only run you onto the rocks or pull you under.

About the Event
Sometimes, while navigating our lives, it’s a good idea to drop anchor and lower our sails.
In times of trouble, find your port, batten the hatches, and ride out the storm.
Remember, listening to the song of the Sirens will only run you onto the rocks or pull you under.
On November 8th, in the Women’s Wisdom Village, we will explore the parallels between our lives and the mythology of Odysseus and Penelope.
We will explore the relationship between action and patience, and hubris and wisdom, to understand how our choices and actions influence our world.
Athena was Odysseus’ and Penelope’s patron Goddess. She is the Greek goddess of Wisdom, a warrior, and a goddess of hand-crafts, weaving, the arts, and democracy.
In the weeks and months to come, like the ancient mariners, before we reach a peaceful shore, we may still have to battle monsters and survive other dangers.
Come and explore what these ancient myths and goddesses can teach us about navigating the rough seas of our lives.
What can we learn from the time we are living through? Where is our power, and how should we wield it? Join me to explore the ancient hopeful truths and power that lives within the myths of the universal experience of being a woman.
Dr. A. is a cultural mythologist and women's coach. Join her in weekly inspirational conversations, held online, about the big picture of being a woman in these times.
In each conversation, as women have done for millennia, we will gather at the well (ours will be virtual) to support each other and to find wisdom, insight, and clarity in uncertain times.
Enter the circle and:
- Experience new ways of understanding what we are going through today, from the wisdom in ancient myths and stories.
- Explore the legacy of wisdom from the profound universal experiences of being women.
- Broaden and deepen our thinking about our outer and inner worlds.
- Create a deeper connection to ourselves and to each other.
These weeks of social distancing and unrest can create more than stress and worry. We can emerge from this uncertain time with a story to tell about ourselves and our world. We can create a new vision for our lives, our families, our communities, and our world.
The Women's Wisdom Village meets on Zoom. Each gathering will last approximately 1 1/2 hours and welcomes up to 20 women. Zoom meeting code will be delivered via email after your payment is received. The fee is $5.15 per meeting, the cost of my favorite cuppa'. Buy me a cuppa' joe and join me in the Women's Wisdom Village!
Some scholarships are available. Email Dr. A at email@example.com for more information, and to apply.
