This course will explore the power and presence of women within diverse wisdom traditions and movements for social change. We will reflect on feminine ways of being, leading and meaning-making as it relates to care for the Earth and our communities. We will discover the presence of the feminine within our religious and spiritual traditions, while also engaging with texts from diverse women writers and voices from women in leadership who stand courageously at the intersection of spirituality and justice-making.
