I envision this as a healing, positive, and nurturing space for women to share and discover things related to feminist spirituality. This includes goddess spirituality, the divine feminine, witches, and things related to paganism.


This entry by Encyclopedia.com beautifully sums up what feminist spirituality is:


"Feminist spirituality is a grassroots religious movement inside and outside established religions that reclaims the power, value, and dignity of women. It is a commitment to bringing about in oneself and in the world an alternative vision of justice and equality for all. It focuses on women's heritages, women's body as the locus of the divine, and women's work of replacing patriarchal, kyriarchal societies with equality for all. This empowering spiritual quest starts with women's search for meaning rooted in women's experiences. It is Earth-centered and embodied and oriented toward global justice. Feminist spirituality stands at the heart of human transformation, challenging accepted ways of knowing and being. It includes feminist knowledge, rites, religious practices, prayers, and beliefs."



From Monique Wittig's Les Guerilleres:


"There was a time when you were not a slave, remember that. You walked alone, full of laughter, you bathed bare-bellied. You say you have lost all recollection of it, remember... You say there are not words to describe it, you say it does not exist. But remember. Make an effort to remember. Or, failing that, invent."



From Ntozake Shange's for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf:


"I found God in myself and I loved her fiercely."
