Leipzig is a historic city in Saxony with a central Marktplatz, a Renaissance old town hall that houses the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig, chronicling the city’s history. Composer J.S. Bach is buried in the late-Gothic St. Thomas Church, and more recently, St. Nicholas Church became a meeting point for the “Monday Demonstrations,” which led to the 1989 overthrow of communism. With its new generation of artists and cultural provocateurs Leipzig is becoming one of Germany’s most dynamic and welcoming destinations.

Divine Feminine, Discovering the Power Within – Wednesday 16 January 2019

We can meet Her in our daily actions, in our speech, in our caring and in our growing awareness. She offers us challenges and also liberation from our limitations. Her nature is compassionate: always opening the way for us to try again and again. How can I deepen my relationship to Her? How can I become more receptive to Her presence in my life?

Bring along a pen and journal for reflection.
