Educator and musician continues Spiritual Journeys series

Patricia Raube-Wilson, an educator and musician from Binghamton, N.Y., will explore the relationship between spirituality and the factors of weight, body image, sex and femininity. Her talk titled The Woman Who Was Too Big for God and Other Stories from the Front Lines of the Body Wars is at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, in Skelton Lounge, Chase Hall, 56 Campus Ave. The public is invited to attend this Spiritual Journeys lecture without charge.

Sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain at Bates, the Spiritual Journeys lecture series features speakers from a variety of traditions who tell the stories of their spiritual awakening and development. Speakers are invited to explore how they experience a sense of the holy in their everyday lives, how their perspectives and disciplines have shaped that sacred experience and how they understand religion as a resource or an obstacle to the life of the soul. Speakers may also address the political and social consequences of their spirituality.

Next in the Spiritual Journeys series will be The Greenfire Community, a women’s spirituality center in Tenants Harbor, discussing Creating a Life in Community for Justice, for Work, for the Inner Life at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 1, in Skeleton Lounge of Chase Hall, 56 Campus Ave.
