The Association for the Study of Women & Mythology is thrilled to announce our first multi-day biennial conference, to be held April 23-25 at the Kirkridge retreat center, Bangor, PA, in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, several hours from New York City and Philadelphia.
Our film festival will host the world premiere of "Pink Smoke Over the Vatican," about the ordination of Catholic women priests, and will feature ethnologist Sabine Jell-Bahlson's films on Mammywata.
Poetry readings, art displays, ritual, performances (including music by Ruth Barrett and a reading by Elizabeth Cunningham) and interactive programs will be featured.
Topics include lady of the beasts, publishing goddess scholarship, archaeomythology, spiritual geometry and the goddess, the divine feminine as vortex, finding your sacred language, the wheel of the year as spiritual psychology, frog mysteries, and much more.
Don't miss this unique gathering. Space is limited and registration closes April 15--or sooner if we sell out.
