(Video) “Mothers and Daughters” by Trista Hendren

[Editor’s Note: This video meeting was created and produced as part of 2015 Nine Day Solstice Celebration, organized by Mago Academy.]

Trista HendrenThis episode will explore how to bring alive Goddess traditions, spirituality and activism with our daughters (young or old). We have pre-recorded a lively conversation between me and Katharine Krueger of Journey of Young Women – and special guests Gina Loughrige  and Jody Kalpernos.

I will speak specifically to the mother-daughter relationship and how to foster Goddess traditions with your daughter as she grows into a woman. We will incorporate the wisdom of each of our guests into the conversation.

katharineKatherine will speak to collectively  mothering and mentoring  our daughters.  Her perspective applies to parenting, but more broadly and potently to all the things that the collective sisterhood does to help girls  and all genders respect and honor our bodies, our bleeding, our sexuality, the Earth.  Katharine will also speak to goddess-y things like collaborative (as opposed to hierarchical or competitive) initiatives and so on which Starhawk works tirelessly for.

Even if you don’t have a daughter or any children – and even if you’re not a worshiper of the Goddess – you can be part of helping the next generation embody facets of what the Goddess offers.

Tune in to our pre-recorded cozy conversation from our homes around the world. Join us for a cup of tea and lots of love and wisdom.

The show will air on Tuesday, December 15th at 9pm PST here.  You can also listen in any time after that throughout the Nine Day Solstice Celebration.
