SEEKING THE SACRED DURING THE PANDEMIC AND BEYOND WITH MARIANNE WILLIAMSON & DR. BRENDA WADE


Facilitated by Dr. Brenda Wade
Sunday
August 30
2pm – 5pm

Love offering only

Registration required to get zoom link.

The global pandemic, caused by the Covid-19 virus, has forced us to re-evaluate what’s important in our lives and how we engage with our friends, family and intimate relationships. Self-isolation can make us feel lost, depressed, and out of balance as we struggle to stay connected with loved ones and our community. In these trying times, the opportunity exists for growing and deepening our capacity for love, in fact, we all have an awareness — conscious or not, that a crisis calls us to the sacred in the form of love. Marianne Williamson, and Dr. Brenda Wade, have created this exclusive program to inspire and uplift us, as our lives begin to return to normal. With deep honesty and vulnerability, Marianne shares her challenges in running for president and lays bare what she wishes she had done differently and how the sacred has opened a new path of awareness.
