I'm eager to talk with my colleagues at URI when they return home from Parliament - guess talking with me will be one of their first things! Barbara
I did not go this year. I run a RED TENT TEMPLE for women and girls in Burlington, Vermont. That is what I am doing.
RED TENTS and RED TENT TEMPLES are all over, Gather the women. love Micha

I want to find ONE woman's group that would like to commit to a regular teleconference call for the purpose of sharing spiritual stories, defining God moments, how God is working in our lives, interfaith and interreligious dialogue. I believe the connective tissue from the Parliament is strong enough to serve as the foundation for getting started. I say we start in January! Blessings, Linda Higdon
We have held a meeting of those in the Portland/Vancouver area who came to Melbourne, to share our initial reflections and revise our thoughts about how we want to share our experiences with those who didn't come, in our Post-Parliament event scheduled for February 21.
My husband and i also held a small (about 12 people) session with members of our co-housing community, to share our experiences and answer their questions. The most important thing that came from that was their response to the Report from the Indigenous Assembly, and their chagrin that they had never heard about the Doctrine of Christian Discovery and its impact on our own land rights legal precedents. Several of them have asked to borrow my copy of "Pagans in the Promised Land" by Stephen Newcomb, which helps us non-Indigenous understand the cognitive frameworks that we have which keep us from even seeing all the embedded ways that we continue to support the status quo. So one of the first things I am doing is to make materials available to increase the awareness of those who have yet to see what we do to keep things from changing and what we might do to begin to pursue change in terms of our relationships with the local Indigenous Peoples here in the Pacific Northwest.
Long answer to a short question!
