Sisterly Conversations 2016: Nurturing Our Spirits – Sharing Our Sacred Practices

Nurturing Our Spirits – Sharing Our Sacred Practices


Sisterly Conversations 2016 is a welcome chance to come together with a focus on spirituality. We will acknowledge the intimate connections of spirituality and sexuality, the ways in which our lesbian/ queer/bi/trans lives (and those of our allies, too) reflect the unique and powerful experiences we share.

We will learn more about the spiritual practices different women value, try on some we have never experienced before, see what we want to leave aside, and what we embrace. Old forms, with which we have grown up and still treasure, and new ways of engaging the sacred and one another will propel us into the next phases of our lives.

Plan on experiencing spirituality, discussing important issues both personal and professional, enjoying meals and walks, music and rituals.

Come and bring your wisdom. Enjoy the bounty of the community. Enter deeply into the holiness we share. Whether it is your first time or your tenth, come and be at home on the mountain in spirit and body.
