Based on the podcast hosted by Vanessa Zoltan and Casper ter Kuile, we are hosting our very own Harry Potter and the Sacred Text group.
In their words: “Just as Christians read the Bible, Jews the Torah and Muslims read the Quran, we are embarking on a… journey to glean what wisdom and meaning we can make from J.K. Rowling’s beloved novels. We read Harry Potter, not just as novels, but as instructive and inspirational texts that will teach us about our own lives.
…[Every other] week, we explore a central theme through which to explore the characters and context, always grounding ourselves in the text. We’ll engage in traditional forms of sacred reading to unearth the hidden gifts within even the most mundane sentences.”
Join us every other Wednesday from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Market of Choice on 29th (upstairs tables). Open to all people, all ages, wizards and muggles alike… we would love to have you there!
Next meeting: November 29th
