Women’s spirituality conference planning session announced

The Women’s Spirituality Circle to brainstorm on Dec. 5 to begin the planning process for a Women’s Spirituality Conference

The Women’s Spirituality Circle is hosting an evening of brainstorming and conversation on Dec. 5 to begin the planning process for a Women’s Spirituality Conference planned for March 2014.

“Williams Lake is filled with women who are deeply connected to the Spirit in very different ways,” says Margaret-Anne Enders, one of the event organizers who invites interested women to come to the meeting and share their ideas about what activities they might like to see at the conference.

She says the organizers, which include CMHA Multiculturalism Program, Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society, Women’s Contact Society, St. Peter’s Anglican Church, and Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre, are hoping that the Women’s Spirituality conference will be a starting point for monthly activities women can share together to explore various religions and spiritual practices.

For instance, one month they might visit a Sikh Temple, another they may participate in a traditional First Nations sweat, the next a yoga session, or the next month perhaps visit a Buddhist site.

Another month she says they might just have a fireside discussion on life, or other topics such as encorporating loving kindness into our everyday lives.

“We want this circle to be open to all women:  women who have strong roots in organized faith communities as well as women who would describe themselves as spiritual, but not religious.  There may be women who don’t feel connected spiritually at all, but who may like to participate in such exploration,” Enders says. “What would you like to learn about?”

The planning evening takes place Thursday, Dec. 5 in the CMHA board room at 51 South Fourth Avenue from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Supper will be provided.
