UU Women's Connection Spring retreat - Pilgrim Park IL Friday, June 02, 2017

Spring Retreat 2017Molly Remer at Pilgrim Park Illinois

The Theme will be As Above, So Below.

Our Presenter will be Molly Remer!

Molly has been “gathering the women” to circle, sing, celebrate, and share since 2008. She plans and facilitates women’s circles, seasonal retreats and rituals, mother-daughter circles, family ceremonies, and red tent circles in central Missouri.

She is an ordained priestess who holds MSW, M.Div, and D.Min degrees. She has worked with groups of women since 1996 and teaches college courses in group dynamics and human services. She began creating birth art during her first pregnancy in 2003 and has never stopped, though the medium in which she works has evolved with time, as well as its expression.

Molly is fiery, intense, and driven. Molly is the author of Womanrunes, Earthprayer, and The Red Tent Resource Kit, as well as three social service oriented booklets and a miscarriage memoir. She maintained her popular Talk Birth blog from 2007-2016 and writes about thealogy, nature, practical priestessing, and the goddess at Brigid’s Grove, her Woodspriestess blog, and SageWoman Magazine. She also writes for Feminism and Religion. Read more about Molly at www.brigidsgrove.com
