Women’s Book Club
Facilitated by Karen Ely
Any time women come together with a collective intention,
it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt,
in a kitchen preparing a meal, or in a club reading the same book,
when women come together with a collective intention,
~ Phylicia Rashad
JOIN US If you love to read, love to talk about books, love to learn from books and transform through books, then join the Sedona Women’s Institute’s founder/director, Karen Ely, and a community of book loving women for our new book club.
Karen believes that in today’s hectic time-starved world it becomes even more important to find time for quiet renewal, time to step back and assess who you are and where you’re going, and time to celebrate where you’ve come from and what you’ve learned. And for her, the journey has always included books.
The Spirit Book Club is for any woman who loves the process of reading insightful books and then being part of a vibrant, enlightening discussion with other bright, creative women.
