EXPLORATION: WHAT DOES LILITH TEACH US?
In this fourth session, we embark on Part Two of our study by embracing what we discovered about Lilith during the previous three sessions. In Part One, we discovered who Lilith was, how she’s been distorted and suppressed, and what she reawakens in us. Now we turn to Lilith as teacher, receptive to the messages she carries for each of us.
