Becoming Wise: An Exploration
Wisdom, Love, and Power are three great attributes of the Goddess that we hope to emulate. What is wisdom, and can we do anything to become wiser people? Join us for a deep look, as well as bits of wisdom from philosophers and teachers through the ages, and activities to enhance our own wisdom. Does wisdom (in any form) come with age, or experience, or compassionate service, or…? How much of the wisdom construct is mental or intellectual, and how much is emotional or spiritual? Your hostesses in this journey are Amber K and Azrael Arynn K.
