Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sharon Blackie, ‘Celtic Mythology for an Age of Ecocide: the Land, the Otherworld, and the Anima Mundi’


We are beyond grateful to welcome Dr. Sharon Blackie as our keynote speaker! She will speak to us live from her home in the UK. Award-winning writer, psychologist and mythologist, her highly acclaimed books, courses, lectures and workshops are focused on the development of the mythic imagination, the relevance of myth, fairy tales and folk traditions to the personal, cultural and environmental problems we face today. Her bestselling work, “If Women Rose Rooted” won our hearts and we were thrilled when she said yes, that she would bring us to a new awareness of how we can live in deeper relation with the land we live on. Learn more about her. Her newest book, ‘Hagitude: Reimagining the Second Half of Life’ explores the profound transformational time leading us into elderhood.

Read more about her talk.

The Heart of the Women & Spirituality Conference is the presenters and their workshops. We are blessed to have an amazing selection of choices curated for an immersive, transformational weekend. Whether you are a practitioner of healing arts and want to deepen your own practice, a novice who is just starting out on a path to a life led by Spirit and Higher Guidance, or seeking healing and solace from life experience, we have something for you.

The Journey Awaits!

“Since 1981 the Women & Spirituality conference has supported thousands of women on their personal path towards healing and wholeness. From learning about the religions and spiritual traditions of the world, to exploring alternative healing modalities, women have come forward to present their work, share their stories and offer their gifts. It has brought us together on our shared journey towards healing, growth and ultimately our own path to finding our Soul’s purpose. These past three years of dealing with the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic have been utilized as the gift that they are, a time to reflect on the history of the conference and embrace a renewed, sustainable future.”

Virginia Cooper, Conference Coordinator
