Rituals and expression

Whether it’s protest, poetry, dance or rites of passage, rituals inform all aspects of women’s lives, creating space for healing ancestral wounds, restoring, reconciling, and expanding the feminine, celebration and exercises of personal and collective power. We will explore practices, rituals and forms of expression and their historical roots, delving into the Indigenous sciences of Thriving Life, African-Centered Wisdom Traditions, earth-based spiritual traditions, and more, hearing from women across generations and cultures.
