Retreat day for the Healing Prayer team, Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver
Music – Prayer. Creativity. Voice.

“Music allows us to move around those big invisible pieces of ourselves and rearrange our insides so that we can express what we feel even when we can’t talk about it.”
Karl Paulnack, Boston Conservatory

Music allows us a way of getting in touch with the deeper parts of ourselves that are not easily expressed in words – it can be a powerful way of prayer. We’ll spend the day listening to music, taking a peek into the life of an artist, hearing what musicians and others have said about music and its power to bring about healing in the world, and talking with each other about the role of music on our faith journeys and in our lives.

March 26, 2011 St. George’s Anglican Church, Langley
Retreat day for the International Anglican Women’s Network – Vancouver chapter.

Walking with Mary Magdalene
“What does it mean for you that a woman is part of the passion story? A part that is omitted in our traditional services?”
Anglican women, come and walk together with Mary Magdalene for the day. Experience and explore the journey of the passion as she leads us through ritual, prayer, images, and communion.

Led by The Rev. Dixie Black and Eleanor Rogers, both professional Clinical Counsellors and Spiritual Directors, and faithful Anglican women looking for the feminine face of God.
