A 1/2 day women’s retreat open to all adult female members and friends of heritage.
A recent trip to Greece and an exploration of the Minoan Bee Goddess provides the content for this 1/2 day workshop. Since ancient times, the bee and the beehive have played central roles in human spiritual interest and worship. Bees and honey are present in the creation myths, cosmologies and sacred places of many diverse ancient cultures. Hear about the peak sanctuaries, ancient springs and the cave temples of the island of Crete.
The HUUC women have explored “Cakes” Courses over the past several years. The title for Cakes for the Queen of Heaven UU curriculum comes from the book of Jeremiah in the Hebrew Bible wherein God speaks to Jeremiah, saying: “Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? The children gather wood and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough to make cakes to the Queen of Heaven and to pour out libations.” This workshop will combine some “Cakes” content with an exploration of Bees and Honey!
The retreat, which will take place at Heritage Church, will consist of sharing, singing, chanting, storytelling, movement, lecture and guided visualization. Led by Tracy Jo and Kerry Dawn Larson. This is much more than a travelogue; this is a day of deep diving into the divine feminine. Contact Tracy Jo if you have questions or concerns.
Please RSVP by November 3rd to so we can have materials and space ready for everyone. RSVP To:
There is no need to have done the course “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven” or any other UU courses to attend this 1/2 day retreat.
