Starting CAFE and CAFE SOLO FALL' 18 season: Feminine Genius
Holy Spirit, bestowing life unto life,
moving in All.
You are the root of all creatures,
washing away all impurity,
and anointing wounds.
Thus you are luminous and praiseworthy, Life,
awakening, and re-awakening all that is. - Hildegard von Bingen (12th century)
Unpacking the myths and truths about feminine genius can go sour quickly if we cling to unredeemed ideas of who God is and how our identity is shaped by this understanding. We would like to understand and immerse ourselves in the process of being transformed by the Holy Spirit, on His terms, and walk awakened to the movement of His breath after sleepless nights, when the kids are sick, when we want to stay in present moment because trusting seems too much to bare, in the days of triumphs and small victories. We want to live awakened.
We are starting our CAFE and CAFE SOLO Fall season with a session of film screening, discussion, praise and worship and ministry time:
COST: $15 (Registration closes Aug. 20)

'Speaking to Sparrows' is a documentary film about women finding courage to confront the uncomfortable.

It is these conversations that are a light in the darkness, and can lead to sisterhood, belonging and healing.

1. Why do you think men should attend a viewing of a movie portraying women's issues?
Because 50% of humans are female.
2. What is CAFE?
We are a tribe of women participating or related to the Stone to Flesh School of the Heart who want to walk fiercely in the Father's love, submitting to the movements of the Holy Spirit and submerging our hearts in the mercy of Jesus. Through prayer, sharing intimately about our dreams and the reality, supporting each other's paths and sinking deeper into the creeds of our faith, we want to bring back the sense of wonder, wisdom and creativity to the world robbed of passionate love. We are foremost beloved daughters of the Father, and only from there we identify ourselves also as leaders, moms, creatives, wives, entrepreneurs, healers, visionaries and missionary disciples. We dream that no Catholic woman will feel alone, unsupported or isolated in her life. Learn more
