In April, we presented our 2013 Symposium:
“Lady of Ten Thousand Lakes: Finding Wisdom in Places”
ASWM Regional Symposium, St. Paul, MN, April 20, 2013
Our keynote speaker was Arieahn Matamonasa-Bennett, Ph.D., a Native American scholar and licensed clinical psychologist on the faculty of DePaul University School for New Learning. Her presentation was “Honoring the Web: Indigenous Wisdom and the Power of Place.”
In addition, Lydia Ruyle was on hand to receive the 2013 Brigit Award for Excellence in the Arts. Lydia’s Goddess Icon Banners have flown all around the world, bringing goddess imagery to new audiences.
Panels included Methodology, Place Wisdom. Matriarchal Studies, and Art and Archaeology. There was a special showing of “Things We Don’t Talk About,” a documentary of the Red Tent movement by ASWM member Isadora Leidenfrost.
