PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE, we will now be running this series of films in MARCH 2018 for International Women’s Day and Month! The first movie will be on Thursday March 8th, 2018 — International Women’s Day.
Women and Spirituality Movie Nights
Please join Amy Taylor, Owner of TAoTaT’s Mystic TearoomPlease join Amy Taylor, owner of The Art of Tea and Tasseomancy and TAoTaT's Mystic Tearoom, in watching the classic film series produced by Donna Read.
The series is called Women and Spirituality and consists of three impactful movies about woman’s role in Spirituality over the centuries.
Even though this series was made many years ago in the late 80s it is still very much a valid representation of woman’s spiritual role today. Women and Spirituality is Donna Read's definitive series that explores the power of the sacred feminine in mythological, historical and cultural contexts. This trilogy investigates the relationship between women and spirituality from ancient times to the present.
On Thursday March 8th, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called the Goddess Remembered — Part 1 — This poetic documentary is a salute to 35 000 years of «pre-history,»; to the values of ancestors only recently remembered, and to the goddess-worshipping religions of the ancient past.
On Thursday March 15th, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called the Burning Times — Part 2 — This beautifully crafted film is an in-depth look at the witch-hunts that swept through Europe just a few hundred years ago. False accusations and trials led to massive torture and burnings at the stake, and ultimately to the destruction of an organic way of life. The film advances the theory that widespread violence against women and the neglect of our environment today can be traced back to those times.
On Thursday March 22nd, 2018
We will be gathering at 7:00pm and we will have a short discussion about the movie, then we will settle in and watch the first movie in the series called Full Circle — Part 3 — In this stirring documentary, authors, teachers, social activists and feminists explore manifestations of contemporary women’s spirituality in the Western world. Drawing on the customs, rites and knowledge of the past, Full Circle envisions a sustainable future where domination is replaced with respect. At the centre of these discussions is a reverence for the Earth, a sacred circle which we must protect.
We will have some popcorn and light refreshments available for all.
