Renewed interest in women’s spirituality has caused many to turn their hearts again to the search for Heavenly Mother, the Goddess, or any number of faces of female deity. In this session, two prominent authors and lifelong sojourners in the quest to know the female face of God will share their experiences along this journey and the ways in which they continue their pursuits today. Carol Lynn Pearson will speak of the forces and surprises that led to her celebrated play, Mother Wove the Morning, and her reflections on events and trends since, both in and out of Mormonism. Carol P. Christ, a pioneer and founding mother of women’s spirituality and feminist theology movements, will speak on the healing and hope that is found in connection with the Goddess and all She represents.
