Between work life and home life and the changing expectations and opportunities in our culture, women today face more challenges than ever.

Are you looking for a safe place to connect and journey with other women? 

We invite you to join us for a continuing conversation to discuss women's journeys and to explore Maureen Murdock's profoundly wise book, The Heroine’s Journey.

During successful conversations this summer and into the fall, we've been able to discover common themes in our journey.  With some working as always, and others working remotely, while others are sheltering-in-place or unemployed or in retirement, or in a time of high concern of being evicted, it was helpful to be able to share and listen and learn together. The past year has been one of many emotional demands on who we are and how to function as people of faith.

In December, the conversation continues as we dive deep into Murdock’s book with facilitator, Lee Ireland, reviewing two chapters each month.  (See schedule below.)  The book is a resource, but not a requirement, and is helpful in better understanding a woman’s evolutionary path of spiritual growth.

All meetings will be held ONLINE via Zoom.  You will receive a Zoom login when you register.

The Schedule:

Beginning on Saturday, December 5th from 9:30am-11:30am: Chapters one and two

After the holidays, we'll meet monthly on the fourth Saturday morning of the month from 9:30 to 11:30.
  • January 23, 2021:  Chapters 3 and 4
  • February 27, 2021: Chapters 5 and 6
  • March 27, 2021: Chapters 7 and 8
  • April 24, 2021: Chapters 9 and 10
  • May 22, 2021: Gather to reflect on our years' journey

Although registration is necessary, there is no charge for this offering.  We gratefully accept your generous donation to support the ministry and mission of Rolling Ridge.  Thank you.  Once you have registered you will receive an email with the zoom meeting notification.

About the leader(s)

Lee Ireland

Rev. Lee A. Ireland is a long-time Interim Pastor having served in many churches in CT and most recently in Rowley, MA. She is now living in Niantic, CT and listening during this time of the pandemic.   She received her M.Div. from Andover Newton Theological School, and trained as a Spiritual Director at Mercy Center, Madison, CT.  She has served in 12 different congregational settings as well as working in a women's prison and as a per diem hospital chaplain. Since 1990, she has had the joy of leading retreats. She is well aware of how life throws us curve balls and we can become distracted from our soul's journey because we focus on those things that lead us down dead-ends.  We begin to regain wonder and gratitude as we chose to take retreats and learn how to listen within so we can stay on our faith journeys, receive guidance from God and hear our hearts and souls singing in unexpected moments.  We then make new life choices that bring us greater peace within and fulfillment as we live, love and serve from that knowing.
