There are two UCV women’s groups ready to welcome one or two additional participants. One meets monthly on Tuesday evenings and the other 2 Fridays per month in the afternoon. We now have several women’s writing groups and are about to start another one. See this link for details: https://vancouverunitarians.ca/events/writing-group-new/
Sheila Resels and Mary Bennett can help you get connected to a group. Just send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Women’s Retreat on Saturday, October 23 was very inspiring and energizing.
Here are some of the comments:
- A very informative and thought-provoking presentation by Jo-Anne. I enjoyed learning about the latest waves – 4, 5, 6. It put issues into the perspective of an expanding feminism. The small group discussions worked surprisingly well. The questions worked well to make the thrust of the different waves hit home.
- I enjoyed hearing about the women’s groups from past decades. Quite amazing how many different kinds of groups there are at UCV.
- The evening prose readings was a very moving session. There was a general theme about death and remembrance which, of course, leads to some sadness and/or nostalgia – even anger. However I was very impressed with the writing as well as the interesting content – all different but similar too.
- This was my first time attending a retreat like this. Very “Growth-ful”.
