WELCOME TO THE 38TH ANNUAL

WOMEN & SPIRITUALITY CONFERENCE.  

We are currently updating the website in preparation for the 2019 conference!

If you would like to receive updates, please email us at joyisessential@gmail.com

The Women & Spirituality Conference was founded in 1981 through a collaboration between the Mankato State University Departments of Religious Studies & Women’s Studies and the United Christian Campus Center. Our purpose is to provide a supportive and nurturing setting for a dialogue of caring and mutual respect between and among people from many spiritual and religious traditions. The conference does not advocate or exclude any view and continues to foster an understanding and celebration of similarities and differences. May we continue to aid one another on our individual and communal spiritual journeys.
