Spirit in My Life

Calling All Women Who Are Spiritual Seekers!

Are you concerned about the state of our world and wondering what this has to do with your faith?

Have you ever wondered what the “The Divine Feminine” means? Are you looking for some like-minded women who want to explore the work of Spirit in their lives?

Then this group just might be for you.

Space for Conscious Living is pleased to invite you to a spiritual dialogue, discussion and book study group for women who want to go further and deeper in their understanding, convened by Dr. Linda Beatrice Brown and Dr. Doris Fultz.

Led by Linda Beatrice Brown, PhD, author of A Mother Knows Her Child, Poetic Meditations from Mary, and six other books. Linda will lead dialogues on writings and ideas that help us to gain insights into our spiritual development as it relates to the feminine face of God, sometimes called The Divine Feminine.

Linda is a workshop leader with 30 years of experience and retired as Professor of the Humanities from Bennett College in 2013. She has led a number of spiritual workshops, the latest one in 2016, a Lenten retreat on the Divine Mother at the Healing Ground, retreat center in Summerfield, NC.

Doris is a retired professor of Animal Science at A&T State University, and a spiritual seeker.

We will begin our exploration with readings and dialogue that will lead us to make a deepening connection with ancient as well as modern ideas about Spirit as feminine.

When?
The “Spirit in My life” group will meet four times: October 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 6-8 PM

How Much?
$40.00 for the four sessions or pay what you can

A Mother Knows Her Child: About the Poems:
In these poems, Linda Beatrice Brown has given us a dimension of Mother Mary that has not been fully explored, her very human self, her strength, sacrifice and wisdom. As women come into their own in our time, they are being met by violence and resistance at every turn. The author has given us a way to see the power of the Divine Feminine and perhaps more significantly, to take heart, and to recognize and affirm that power that is within ourselves.

From the author’s preface:
“I offer these poems and meditations to all of us, in humility and gratitude that we may see in the Mother’s face a way to heal ourselves. If you are reading this you know that we are in a time of massive change on our planet, a critical turning point for the earth and all her children. It is only through the heart that we can become who we are meant to be, that we can see ourselves as She sees us.”

 

Words of praise from Gloria Karpinski, spiritual teacher and writer:
“This collection of poems—and I am tempted to say “these dialogues with Mary” – bring her human reality into a focus that celebrates and empathizes with her, walking with her through the harsh and sublime passages in her life. From the young girl who became the vessel for a message that would change the world to the aging Mary, Linda’s poems explore the very nature of sacrifice. As I read I was alternately in tears and awe, often at the same moment.”

Words of praise from The Rev. Canon Dr. Henry L. Atkins Jr.:
“Mary was willing to be impregnated by the word of God. The poetic and deeply prophetic words of Linda Beatrice Brown in A Mother Knows Her Child have the power to impregnate us with the word that Mary knew. Dr. Brown has offered us a profound gift.”


Linda Beatrice Brown is the author of three novels. She also writes poems, plays, short stories, and essays. She started writing at the age of 14 and her first poetry was published at the age of 19. For many years she has been a professor of African American Literature. For several years she was even a speech writer for a college president.

Her experience as a teacher inspired her to write about the Civil War period in a novel for young people. She currently holds the Willa B. Player chair in the Humanities at Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, NC.

Linda has two adult children and 6 grandchildren and lives in a 100 year old house in Greensboro, NC.
