Spiritual Circles

We attend to the power that connects us all and respond to that power through engagement with traditions, spiritual practices and meaning-making conversations that noursish and fuel us for our life and work together. Leaven Community circles for spiritual nourishment include…

  • Bras, Bible, Brew  All are welcome as we facilitate MORE BRAS with our continuation of stories from other BBB women, MORE BREWS as we enjoy Lucky Lab North Tap Room and MORE BIBLES as we explore sacred texts from many traditions.
  • Salt and Light Lutheran Church  All are welcome as we explore on Sundays—and throughout the week—the ways in which we are called to leaven God’s dreams in and with our community and our world. We are anELCA congregation.
  • Waking Up Community in NE Portland  All are welcome as we meditate and discuss Buddhist concepts and teachings from a variety of sources.
