Newspaper article about the course
Beebe Frazer will conduct a five-week course from the Unitarian Universalist Women and Religion curriculum titled Cakes for the Queen of Heaven. The sessions will begin from 2 to 4 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 10. This is a program in feminist thealogy (Greek word meaning the study of Goddess) for adults and older youth. The course will be held at the Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware, 33739 Marsh Road, Lewes.
This five-week series, In Ancient Times, examines the archeological and anthropological evidence of Goddess worship in prehistoric cultures of the ancient Near East and Old Europe. It presents pre-patriarchal societies in which women and men revered a female divinity, equally shared power and respect, and lived in peaceful civilizations for hundreds of years.
Each class includes simple ritual, DVD slides, art, song, poetry, reflection, and optional sharing. A second, six-week series, On the Threshold, will be offered at UUSD in the fall.
Course objectives for the first series are to raise the consciousness of participants to the religious myths and symbols of the ancient world where female images and experiences were central, and to engage participants in an exploration of the psychological and social importance to women today of reclaiming their female religious heritage.
