Event description
In this conference we will examine how the unique feminine perspective has created deep, natural relationship with our Earth.

About this Event

Women have an ancient and inherent connection to the land. Over time we have ignored or simply forgotten this sacred bond. Humanity as a whole cannot truly begin to heal this break without confronting and learning from our past. In this conference we will examine how the unique feminine perspective has created deep, natural relationship with our Earth. We will ask from where this deep bond evolved and how we can best work together to continue to foster its future evolution. We will explore how women have been connected to the land in the past, how women are connected in the present, and how women can continue to be connected in the future. We will challenge ourselves to think about our own spiritual connection the land. How are we already honoring this sacred relationship? How can we work to strengthen this connection to better ourselves and the world in which we live?

Join us for a day meeting some amazing women from around the state as they discuss how their connection informs their living with and advocating for the land.
