Transformation of the Cave
Transformation of the Cave
Throughout history the Cave has represented or been seen as a symbol of everything from the underworld, the unconscious, the womb of creation as well as a sacred retreat where we seek healing, refuge and a place to commune with the Divine. During this talk, we will explore the transformative properties of the cave and its comparison to the past few years as we seek to be reborn into a new way of living. Join Rev. Elzia Sekou on January 29th at Althea Center as we explore a new way of living.
All are welcome. Stay for our community lunch directly afterwards! We'll also have an in-person Deep Dive at 12:30 pm with Rev. Elzia Sekou to explore the Sunday message further.
