Earth Spirit Rising Conference 2007

H/T to The Kentucky Catholic Eye for this gem.

Earth Spirit Rising Conference 2007 is scheduled to begin June 8th at Bellarmine University.
Some highlights:
This weekend Bellarmine University will open her doors to an environmentalist couple, a few environmental political activists, an eco-feminists and a self proclaimed witch and those are just the presenters. The university which touts itself as “the premier independent Catholic university in the south” is no stranger to diverse teaching. Last year in October Bellarmine hosted a “swinging conference” featuring one of its professors and sociologist Dr. Curtis R. Bergstrand, according to ‘LEO’ magazine.

Starhawk is a self proclaimed pagan and witch. Her website reads “Welcome I'm Starhawk, author of many works celebrating the Goddess movement and Earth-based, feminist spirituality. I’m a peace, environmental and global justice activist and trainer, a permaculture designer and teacher, a Pagan and Witch. To see how it all weaves together, follow the many strands of my web."[i] Starhawk travels internationally teaching magic, the tools of ritual, and the skills of activism.[ii]

I'm sure a fun time will be had by all.
