The special bond found in female friendships has proven to have tremendous benefits both emotionally and physically.  Unfortunately in our segmented, transient society, many women do not have close friends with whom they can have meaningful conversations. A circle of women creates a sacred space that allows each to be more deeply present and proactive in their lives.

The Wise Women’s Cafés were formed to foster and strengthen these important relationships.  To help deepen and focus the conversation, each series of 8 gatherings focuses on a carefully chosen book that addresses common challenges and encourages personal growth.

Upcoming Café Opportunities

This Wise Women's Café is ideal for those who do not live in the Greater Philadelphia area or who prefer to converse from the comfort of their own home, because it is offered virtually by telephone. Together we will read and discuss “Thank You for Being Difficult; Spiritual Guidance for Dealing with Difficult People,” by Mark I. Rosen PhD.

When: Tuesdays, Feb 2 – March 22, 2016 7:00 – 8:30 pm EST

Cost: $240 for all 8 sessions

What Wise Women Are Saying About the Café

I was hesitant to join the Wise Women’s Café at first because I wasn’t sure what I’d find. What I found was a passionate group of women that I look forward to seeing on a regular basis. Karin Marcus is the wonderful woman who leads our group. She listens, cares and is truly vested in our growth as a whole and individually. Karin has guided me through some very tough times in my life and I am truly blessed to know her.
— Laura Geraghty
Karin’s gentle manner and voice enable participants in class and on the calls to take it all in, think about it, and then understand it, possibly in another way. Whatever “it” is, aren’t we all looking for clarity?
— Pat Morro
