Meet The Author: Dorothy Gibbons at Lucia Gardens

Long before pink ribbons, walks, rides, and even skydiving for the cause there was The Rose. Dorothy Gibbons, CEO and Co-Founder of The Rose, will be at Lucias Garden, Thursday November 12, from 4pm-7pm for a Meet the Author event. She will gladly speak with you about the inspiration behind the book and answer any questions you may have. We hope you can join us!

About the book: 

Texas women have a well-earned reputation for big hair, big hearts and Texas-sized tenacity. ‘The Women of The Rose’ is the story of such women, the kind who didn't let the "little" things like no money, no experience with non-profits, and no breaks in the glass ceiling keep them from launching what has become a 30-year investment in life-saving women's health. In this collection of stories from co-founder Dorothy Gibbons you will discover what it took to face naysayers, build a legacy, and even take on what once was a death sentence for 1000s of women.

Mary Magdalene Workshop with Dr. Kayleen Asbo
to Jul 25

Mary Magdalene Workshop with Dr. Kayleen Asbo

  • Reynolds Hall at Christ Church Cathedral (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Mary Magdalene stands at the very heart of the Christian contemplative tradition, and also transcends all religious boundaries. Her composite picture from scripture reveals a woman of courage able to witness profound suffering and yet also open new life, joy and hope. For many contemporary seekers, Mary Magdalene represents an archetypal figure who points the way to a deeply embodied spiritual pathway that affirms the goodness of creation and the wisdom that can be found within the depths of each human heart. In this two-day workshop, we will:

  • Explore the Mary Magdalene of history, through scripture and her profound and lasting impact on the contemplative tradition, particularly within French Orthodox and Benedictine monastic communities.
  • Discover the Mary Magdalene of art, music and myth through a slideshow of over 300 masterworks from across the centuries.
  • Celebrate Mary Magdalene as an archetypal figure of anthropos, a fully realized human being of great spiritual power who points the way to integration and wholeness, particularly as revealed in the Gospel of Mary.
  • Engage in the ancient contemplative practices that connect us with our own inner wisdom: chanting psalms, Lectio Divina and walking the labyrinth.
