Spinsters, Seers, & Succubi: Conversations on Feminism and Progressive Spirituality

Jul 23, 2023

In this rich hour of discussion with Dr. George, Lyvonne Briggs will teach spiritual practices that center womanist theology and African cosmology. She teaches with power and wisdom on topics like showing up for both your grief and your pleasure; reparations for Black folks; and men needing healing from patriarchy, too. If you are new to what the rich tradition of womanism is,  Lyvonne will walk you through its legacies and its possibilites in its "4th wave."
