All Shall Be Well: Julian of Norwich (4-part Series) FebruaryFeb 02 2022 06:00pm

Virtual Programs

Facilitator: Michelle Watters
During times of crisis and chaos, the kind that a pandemic brings, we may call on our ancestors for their deep wisdom. Julian of Norwich, who lived her entire life during a pandemic, (1342–ca. 1429) is one of those ancestors we can look to today. Julian’s wisdom points to everyday practices, including soaking in the goodness found in nature, living in a posture of gratitude, and relating to God as a loving, compassionate mother. This is helpful as we seek to counter fear, depression, and grief caused by circumstances in which we feel powerless. Julian’s wisdom is a deep well for us as we seek to maintain spiritual and intellectual composure and an optimistic attitude that transcends circumstances.

These sessions glean insights gained from the book Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in a Time of Pandemic – and Beyond, by Matthew Fox. Participants do not need to read the book to participate. Sessions will include prayer, sharing insights from Julian, contemplation, and discussion. Participants can attend individual sessions or all sessions.

Topics for each of the Wednesday Zoom sessions will include:

  • Feb. 2: Who is Julian? Julian’s time of the pandemic. Facing darkness.
  • Feb. 9: Goodness, joy & awe. Nature and God.
  • Feb. 16: The Divine feminine. Non-dualism.
  • Feb. 23: The importance of trust. The power of love.

Michelle Watters is the Director of Pastoral Care for the Sisters of St. Francis. She is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a yoga teacher, and a Franciscan Associate.

Cost: $20 per person, does not include book (optional). Please register by Friday, January 28, 2022. Maximum of 14 participants.
