topic: Lessons from a Pilgrimage
SPEAKERS: Deborah Tegano and Marsha Parsons, WOW Members
The last stage of a Pilgrimage is sharing the “Gift” or “bringing back the boon.”
Debbie and Marsha spent ten days last fall with 15 others on the Pilgrimage of the Blue Rose. “We traced the steps and mysteries of Mary Magdalene, the Egyptian Goddess Isis, and the rebirth of the Divine Feminine through the sacred mountains and villages of the Languedoc region in southern France and the Catalonia region of northern Spain. And now each of us, Marsha and Deb, is called to share our individual experience – to dialogue and talk about the pilgrimage, how it felt, what we learned and are still learning. This will not be a slide show presentation of our trip. It will be an interactive heart level conversation, organically evolving, and based on the questions and the insights we co-create with the group of participants. Come and join us!
