Join us on day 7 of Lean Into Green Online Education. Judy Grahn talks on the subject of Women’s Spirituality: We Must Go Back to Go Forward Sustainably.
Judy says, “We make greener choices when we have ways to really identify with Nature.” Grassroots and academic women have been developing Women’s Spirituality for 40 years — a history that looks behind the curtain of patriarchal times. Women centered knowledge has been suppressed in the interest of men developing their own sciences. Now, it’s time for women to step forward again.
“Women’s Spirituality is the practice of connecting with, and being in relationship with, what is imminent and energetic in Nature.” You will gain a sense of where we might go and how we might change from a materialist and mechanistic view to a much more contemporary world view, one where everything is imminent and in process. Science of all kinds is moving in the direction of a women-centered way of being. Women’s Spirituality is spreading out into our culture in many different ways. Learn about an online curriculum that includes Archeo-Mythologists, Dancers and Artists. Judy closes this interview with her “Common Woman” poem.
Judy Grahn is a poet and author. She is one of the Founding Mothers of the Lesbian Feminist Movement in the United States. Judy co-directs the Master’s course in Women’s Spirituality at Sofia University. This is a two-year women-centered program which meets online throughout the academic year,and for three residencies held on campus in beautiful Palo Alto, California. Graduates use their degrees as a catalyst for change in themselves, in their communities, and in the world.
