Educational series planned with women in mind

Staff Report

An educational series for Women begins in Gardnerville with exploration of creation and spirituality, Thursday, Oct. 18, from 7 to 9 pm. There is no cost and space is limited.

In an effort to offer stimulating intellectual topics to women in the Carson Valley, college educator and author and president of the Institute of the Southwest, Dr. Janet Meyer will be moderating a four-session series on a variety of topics.

First in the series is an evening of exploration of creation spirituality and how this movement can enrich our spiritual lives through its emphasis on interconnectedness, creation and compassion.

This spiritual tradition is especially powerful as a source of revitalization for those drawn to issues of deep ecology, ecumenism, art as meditation, Native American spirituality, justice activism, feminism, animal rights, the reconnection of science to wisdom, and those of prophetic faith traditions.

Call 782-0394 for reservations and location.
