 RSVP required and limited space available contact Bonnie (858) 248-5123, revtarwater@yahoo.com

Please join us as we learn more about Mary Magdalene, feast on art and  music about her, writing exercises and discussions about her as a symbol of the emergent divine feminine as a response to the spiritual crisis in the world. We will make art work and sing about her, experience guided meditations and study the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and other Gnostic texts about her, enter meditative silence and walk the Snake Labyrinth, experience Tarot Card readings (as an underground expression of Mary Magdalene)  with an Anointing Ritual in her Holy Name.  

Menu: Cheese and vegetable hummus platter, salad, spaghetti with fresh pesto, fruit and dessert with mint tea.

 (Vegetables, basil and mint tea from our organic garden.)

Dancing and howling in the moon light with a bonfire!

Bonnie is visiting the Mary Magdalene Grotto in the South of France the first week of July and will share about her pilgrimage.

   All are welcome Church for Our Common Home, special Mary Magdalene worship Sunday July 23, 5 pm

Celebrating loving relationships as the deepest of all psycho-spiritual practices, Bonnie draws on her relationships with the sacred, the natural world, and as a wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend.   Integrating her vocation as  minister, artist, counselor, and dream worker she honors the divine feminine as an interfaith Spiritual Director and Pastoral Counselor.  Working previously in the professional theater she explores metaphor, symbol, color, dreams, visions, story, music, ritual, and dance for healing and transformation. Becoming a mother was a life changing mystical experience for Bonnie.  Experiences of divorce and domestic violence led to a raising of consciousness. She began an intense religious and spiritual search and went to seminary. Conversion experiences heighted her appreciation for the religious dimension in dreams and visions.  Bonnie is dedicated to a life of the spirit and service.       Ordained as a Unitarian Universalist in 1999, she has served as a parish minister, hospital and hospice chaplain and currently serves a new home church, Church for Our Common Home, Churchforourcommonhome.com.
