Co-Creating Divinity with Abraham to Bless Everyone


Course Code: HROW-sp23 Categories: , Tags: , ,


Each week we will read aloud and discuss passages from the story of Abraham in the Bible. We’ll discover how we may be blessed (and bless) with the creative energy that moved Abraham. Exploring Abraham’s relationship to his sons may teach us how to smile while we’re experiencing the challenges between parents and children. Looking at Abraham’s relationship to women may teach us how love can inspire creative strategies that help relationships survive and thrive. We’ll see how we, like Abraham, can transform our understanding and experience of divinity in order to better receive and bestow blessings. And we’ll dream how we, like Abraham, can look forward to dying “at a good ripe age…satisfied.”
