The 36th annual Women & Spirituality Conference is scheduled for September 16th and 17th and consists of workshops, discussions, exhibits, dialogue, discovery and celebration. The conference provides a supportive setting for a dialogue of mutual respect between people from many spiritual and religious traditions. The weekend events include the conference with a keynote and 6 workshop selections from 95 offerings. The keynote address, “How to Turn Your Faith (whatever faith that may be) Into Action”, will be presented by Becca Stevens— author, speaker, priest, social entrepreneur, founder and president of Thistle Farms (ThistleFarms.org), the largest social enterprise in the U.S. run by women survivors.
