“Sophia” Women’s Wisdom Series
Sophia Women’s Wisdom Spirituality Groups
This group of like minded women is by invitation. We meet every third Friday of the month from 2:30 to 5 pm for 10 sessions in total. We decide together if we are meeting for 10 consecutive months or if we agree to taking certain months off (like July or August) if more of us will be away. Regardless, it’s for 10 months and scheduling is collaborative.
The feedback over the years from participants in Sophia is that it is a wonderful way to connect with other women of a certain age who are open and interested in expanding their understanding of what it means to be “wise” from a spiritual perspective, but also from a women’s perspective. The women who gather inevitably bond and build a lovely support network. Many participants did not see themselves as “group” people but Sophia did not feel like a typical “group”. The other feedback is that participants really look forward to seeing each other every month. The teaching segment is thought provoking. The homework (soul work) is motivating and ultimately healing.The experience in Sophia is gentle yet profound.
When you let me know your intent to join us, I will give you the titles of the Sophia books so you can get started on your CHOICE of reading.

Other Sophia Notes:
Sophia Women’s Wisdom Spirituality Group is a small group of women of a certain age who meet for ten sessions. We explore the wisdom of women in the various global spiritual and religious traditions but we always return to our own ways of knowing in the room, in this community, on this island, at this time. Spiritual practices are introduced and explored, and soul work (homework) is inspiring, intriguing and open to creative possibility in written, artistic or other therapeutic forms. Terry Folks is a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, a Registered Clinical Counsellor and both a scholar and personal practitioner of various spiritual traditions from around the world. She leads the group into worlds of wisdom then gracefully recedes into the background as she continues to guide the group in its self- realization.
