Product Description

Using Maria Harris’ book by the same name as a guide, this series will explore the seven “steps” of women ‘s spirituality by reflecting on Mary of Nazareth who, in the course of her lifetime, learned well how to follow the “choreography” of the Spirit.  We will “practice” the graced movements of her experience by examining sever key events in her scriptural story—“mysteries” of joy identified in the seven decades of a rosary known as the “Franciscan Crown.”  Partnering with Mary and attentive to her instruction, we will be directed in the steps she “mastered”: awakening, discovering, creating, dwelling, nourishing, traditioning, and transforming.  If you are interested in discovering how Mary’s “routine” might animate the “dance” of your own life, join us on the second Tuesday of each month.  The sessions follow a sequential order but are not necessarily dependent on one another; so you may choose to attend all or some.  However, if you are interested in attending ANY of these sessions, you need to come to the first one.
