Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) has been credited with bringing science and spirituality together “like no other poet in the nineteenth century.” She has been called a shaman and “medicine woman” for her poetry that awakens, deepens and heals the roots of the soul.
Julian of Norwich (1342-1415) was the first woman to write a book in English, though it was not published for 300 years after her death. It was born of a shamanistic initiation that brought her to the brink of death and in it she names the sacredness of creation –“the goodness in nature is God” she exclaims and offers deep healing.
Both of these powerful women speak to our needs as a species today from deep within the creation spirituality lineage as we face climate change and eco-destruction and our and other creatures’ extinctions. Recent books by the two presenters, Steven Herrmann and Matthew Fox, one celebrating Dickinson and the other celebrating Julian of Norwich, and the contribution of businesswoman, pilot and minister Cameron Trimble are sure to make for an exciting evening.
The event is free and is a fundraiser for the free dailymeditationswithmatthewfox.org which marks its third anniversary on Mother’s Day 2021.
Join us on this special occasion to mark a day for Mother Earth and all other mothers with two powerhouse women mystic-shamans eager to awaken and heal!
