2.5hr Online Workshop
As the world reels from both the coronavirus pandemic and the climate crisis, it is clear that intersectional feminist movements are needed now more than ever. Yet our movements must evolve to more effectively address the ecological and spiritual challenges of these times.
This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to collectively envision what an intersectional, ecological, and sacred feminist activism could look like. We’ll learn about the “secret spiritual history” of feminist and womanist movements in the U.S., explore the connection between embodied healing and social change, and reflect on our relationship with the “more-than human” world. Our time together will include a slideshow presentation, storytelling, experiential exercises, and small group dialogues.
Course Preparation: Listen to Alka’s free audio podcast On Feminism’s Fourth Wave.
