The Circle Way: Praying the Rosary
The Rosary mysteries are emerging again in these challenging times. As Mary, our Mother, Spirit of the Earth, has done over the centuries, she is calling us back to her through this ancient prayer. Together we will explore the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries of the Rosary to ask for our Mother's help.
Program Objectives: To understand the way our lives seem to follow a circle. To explore the connection between the life of Mary of Nazareth and our own lives through the power of the rosary mysteries.
This class if for all spiritual seekers - while the rosary is traditionally a catholic prayer, Carol believes it holds mystical teachings for everyone.
Who will benefit from this program? All who wish to view their lives using the circle way of traveling through joy, light, pain and glory. Carol believes we circle these mysteries over and over again throughout our lives, each time deepening our mystical unity with the One who calls us into Love.
Prerequisites: An open mind and heart.
Suggested Reading: The Way of the Rose by Clark Strand and Perdita Finn is a wonderful book about the rosary and Mary's appearances, written by a married couple. Clark is an ex Buddhist monk.
