Nourishment for the spirit and more
Well, we thought our December Women Howling at the Moon would be a fun, life-giving way to celebrate the year, and it surely was. A delight of a night in fact, with much loving, laughing and stories of bravery and vulnerability and visions for the future.
Thanks to SA artist and women's activist Carol Omer's 'Big Girls Colouring Book (find on FB or the web), these fun mandalas with their affirmative messages provided the catalyst for deep thoughtful conversations as well as colourful artworks to take home. And of course the company was the best.
Brisbane's Three Bowls Cafe was our gorgeously quirky, creative, relaxed venue, and gosh we were well looked after once again.
Our hosts Mo and Robyn, themselves strong supporters of social justice and environmental issues, don't open at night, however they do for us, so we
have the cafe to ourselves. This is perfect for sharing authentically, hearing each other - and even for the occasional howl if we wish.
And thank you everyone for your fabulous feedback and for being who you are. Sending much love to all.
(Note - Three Bowls is a Buddhist cafe in Gloucester St, Highgate Hill. It's a relatively new addition to the Brisbane scene, with an interesting approach and menu. Google them to find lots of rave views. Great for coffee as well as meals)
