UU Changing Women Annual
Sacred Path Card DrawUU Changing Women
Sunday, December 21, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

“Changing Woman” in Native American myth represents the feminine in creation. This mythic goddess is a rich and powerful archetypal figure.

Between the Winter Solstice and the first New Moon of the New Year, UU Changing Women holds its Annual Card Draw. At this gathering we form a sacred circle and, with the aid of a guided meditation, each participant reflects on the past year. Then we draw Sacred Path Cards and Medicine (animal totem) Cards (created by Jamie Sams) for each moon cycle of the coming year. Finally, we focus our intuition on the coming year with another guided meditation. Throughout the year, at the time of each New Moon, the cards drawn are used to reflect upon the sacred at work in our own lives and to ponder the lessons of life we may be exploring.

All women are invited to join us Sunday, December 21, 2014, from 1 PM to 4 PM. For more information, contact Keddy Outlaw at or Margaret Kallsen at
