This week, Rabbi Rami speaks with Clark Strand and Perdita Finn. They are the co-founders of The Way of the Rose, an inclusive fellowship of rosary friends dedicated to the Earth and to the Lady, “by any name we wish to call Her.”

Strand is the author of numerous articles and books on spiritual practices, including Seeds from a Birch Tree: Writing Haiku and the Spiritual Journey and Waking Up to the Dark: Ancient Wisdom for a Sleepless Age. Finn is a children’s book author and former high school teacher. Their most recent book is The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary.

While rosary beads are often associated with Catholicism, Strand and Finn are not Catholic. They note that the rosary is for all people, of many spiritual pursuits. Most of the world's religions have included beads, or worry beads, over the past 100,000 years, notes Perdita. “Holding onto the rosary is like holding on to your mother,” Perdita notes.
