For twenty years, Wisdom Ways has been a place for people to come together to deepen their spirituality and share with kindred spirits. Gathered in conversation, study, meditation and reflection, the Wisdom Ways community has been midwife to thousands navigating new thresholds.

Wisdom Spreads Her Table: A Feast Celebrating Wisdom Ways 

20th Year Anniversary Celebration of Wisdom Ways

Friday, October 31, 2014, 6:30-8:30 pm

Cost: $30.00

Wisdom renews all things; in every generation She passes into holy souls and makes them friends of God . . .” Book of Wisdom

 October 31 marks the 20th anniversary of

Wisdom Ways!

The trinity of All Hallows’ Eve, Feast of All Saints, and Feast of All Souls, bears sacred meaning in cultures across the world.  To ancient Celtics, this time of year marked the change of seasons and the moment when the veil between this world and the next was very thin. 

Through worship, a beautiful meal, table conversations, and celebration, we will remember, honor, and anticipate the ways Holy Wisdom spreads Her table for us and all the world. Come to the feast!

Singer, songwriter and friend of Wisdom Ways, Sara Thomsen’s rich voice and songs will carry us inward to the particulars of our own lives, and outward into the shared humanity of us all.

Three Sessions: Tuesdays, November 11, 18, and 25.

6:30-8:30 pm

Cost: $75.00 for series or $30.00 per session

Someone who helps another find words or stories, whether for the unspeakable, the challenging or the sublime, could be called a midwife. Drawing on the Wisdom Ways theme, facilitator Ted Bowman and guest poets will serve as literary midwives who help participants in finding words for three significant human experiences:

  • living with medical conditions
  • living with contradictions and conundrums
  • the birthing or acknowledgement of beginnings

The Price of Sand-The Value of Life:

21st Annual Fall Soul Conference

Friday, November 14, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm and Saturday, November 15, 9:00 am-3:00 pm

Cost: $45.00, includes lunch; Friday only, $20.00; Saturday only, $35.00

Water. Air. Fire. Earth.  Each of us is comprised of these sacred elements, but what happens when our species begins to value person-made expansion and economy at the expense of environmental degradation?   Ultimately, we all must encounter and explore our value of life—what are we willing to do in order to preserve our breath, our soul energy, the ground we walk on, and the water that comprises our being? These questions will be explored throughout Fall Soul as we examine the devastation and consequences of frac sand mining in communities in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

*Friday afternoon, November 14, 3:00 pm-5:00 pm. Join us as artist Peter L. Johnson will guide a tour of the 'living studio' where he works in deep community with the water at Bdote, the place of first creation of the Dakota People, situated at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers. Meet at the Carondelet Center by 2:45 pm. The pre Fall Soul Tour is free but please RSVP.
