Discussion Group

Spiritual development author Margaret Placentra Johnston will join us and seek input from the Wisewoman community on a topic she is working on. The original Ten Commandments, as reportedly dispensed to Moses on Mount Sinai, represented the highest form of morality that could be comprehended amidst the largely lawless and chaotic society that prevailed at that time. But in our era, rules like avoiding stealing and murder have been internalized by people of average morality and fail to inspire us. Come help explore/suggest a modernized version of the

Mosaic guidance found in the Ten Commandments, one that is informed by contemporary spiritual concepts capable of inspiring citizens in a globalized, postmodern world.

Margaret Johnston is an author and now laying the groundwork for a new book which is in its formative stage.  Her thesis is that “One day an amalgam of inevitable forces—cultural intermixing, historical and scientific research, and globalized perspectives—will inspire the critical mass of society to enlarge its understandings beyond the valid but partial truths revealed to each single culture. The insular, triumphalist, and exclusive teachings of each single religion will give way to broader appreciation of our universal connectedness.


The doors open at 1:30 so participants can have an opportunity to meet & greet before the session.  Please use the Hawthorne Place entrance.  The Jung Society has moved an online registration with Paypal, so please register and pay online, if you are able.  Otherwise, bring $5.00 cash or check.  Questions:  call Brenda 301 587 7412 and leave a message for a callback or via cell phone 301 919 9047 and leave a message for a callback.  Also please don’t wear perfumes, colognes or scents as some of our attendees are allergic to them.
