  • STILL OPEN TO NEW PARTICIPANTS *** Tarot Tuesdays continue October 25 (via Zoom)
    If you'd like to get a taste of the Sapiential Tarot or continue with us in delving deeper into the deck, Tarot Tuesday's are a great option. You do not need prior experience with the sapiential tarot nor to have attended previous evenings. Our next gathering is October 25 from 6pm - 8pm CST. Even if this is your first time, come and sit with us as we share insights and experiences. We offer this free the last Tuesday of each month. The study is led by Abbot Lynn and Monk Sally. Contact Sally in advance to be included in the email notice on the specific topic for the month's study and to receive the Zoom log-in information. Sally can be reached at [email protected]
  • UPDATED *** The Gospel of Philip (via Zoom)
    The Gospel of Philip is a treasure trove of mystical wisdom. Dr Lynn Bauman (Abbot) has been writing a commentary for the Gospel of Philip. A first draft is now available and this study will help "beta test” his translation and the images that accompany the text. Our time together is an opportunity to explore this dense, mysterious and sometimes inscrutable text through the process of midrash. You are invited to participate in this effort. Sessions are held on the first and third Thursday evenings of the month from 7-9pm EDT. For more information or to register (and be provided the Zoom link as well as added to the email list), contact Alison Hine (Abbot) at [email protected]
