When activist Crystal Cheatham came out as a lesbian, she suddenly needed to reframe her belief systems, noting, “Everything was called into question, from my gender expression to my community to what I believed in spiritually.” Are you living fully into your best spiritual self, unencumbered by old thoughts (or other’s opinions)? Are you struggling with any baggage of the past, or how to make sense of the turmoil of our time, or aligning your reality with contradicting core beliefs?
Let’s focus on liberation as a life theology. Join Crystal on a freedom adventure of acceptance, self-love, and finding divine connection in mysterious places. With the chorus of a diverse range of authors, Crystal will gently guide you in a spiritual exploration to deconstruct systems of exclusion and oppression and reconstruct the principles of social justice and compassion.
Read, write, and grow in this day-long workshop, during which you’ll be invited to:
- Ask the hard questions
- Be vulnerable
- Take apart belief systems that no longer serve you while reclaiming what does
