Online Participation in New Class with Celtic Focus: Virgins, Mothers and Crones
The Institute for Feminism and Religion is offering online participation in:
Virgins, Mothers and Crones: Hope in a Time of Darkness
New Autumn Series, starting Monday, October 3rd
At this time of spiritual, economic and political crisis, where do we find hope?
What might ancient female wisdom sources have to teach us? How do we create new images, symbols, art forms and events that challenge the dominant worldview? How do we empower women to become agents of change, bridging the gap between the parental values of the home and the greedy values of the marketplace?
In this series, we will search some ancient Irish texts for sources of wisdom, specifically interrogating texts concerning the images of Virgins, Mothers and Crones. Our material will include Celtic myths, Celtic cosmology, ecology, Lives of saints, pilgrimage, laws, and wisdom literature.
Our hope is that both women and men might find more healthy ways of relating and contributing to new forms of spirituality, politics, and economics.
The series will include storytelling, role plays, films, talks, and group discussion. Material will be circulated in advance to facilitate discussion, especially for those unfamiliar with these sources. This series will be an ideal opportunity for those unfamiliar with the richness of our Celtic past to become familiar with the original sources, where to find them, how to interpret them, and how to use them creatively ‒ in community groups, classrooms, or in academic or therapeutic settings to address present day concerns.
I've registered and really looking forward to the Brighid resources. I'm hoping to learn a lot! Anyone else doing this?
