Event Description:

What does it mean to fit in? How do we do so when who we are conflicts with the community in which we live? When—why—do we decide that trying to fit in (or not) helps us grow spiritually? In this series of three conversations, you are invited to explore how friction points that exist in personal and community (r)evolution can help us grow spiritually has human beings. (Learn more about the Nov. 5 and Nov. 6 conversations.)  

The first conversation on November 3 features Maria Hamilton Abegunde, an ancestral priest, memory keeper, and poet who uses African-based spiritual practices to heal intergenerational trauma. Abegunde will explore how to incorporate West African healing principles and practices into community-based work. She will read from her manuscript The Ariran’s Last Life, an historical memory-work which explores The Middle Passage. Attendees to this event are invited to bring an object and/or offering to build a community healing altar during the discussion.

Attend any or all of these conversations!
