2ND ANNUAL TWO-SPIRIT WEEKEND
A weekend honoring a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female and many indigenous cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders. Join us for a screening of the award winning documentary Two Spirits with a panel discussion with LGBT healers, a cornucopia of LGBT healers on a HEALING SPA DAY, an evening RITUAL & FIRE CEREMONY with your drag queen shamaness Eartha Madre, and a GREEK DREAM TEMPLE / SLEEPOVER at HIGHWAYS including, of course, a fabulous BRUNCH and DREAM WORKSHOP to explore your deepest mysteries!
Complete schedule below:
Friday, August 26th / 8:30 pm
A screening of the film Two Spirits.
Two Spirits interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at the largely unknown history of a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.... Two Spirits mourns the young Fred Martinez and the threatened disappearance of the two-spirit tradition, but it also brims with hope and the belief that we all are enriched by multi-gendered people, and that all of us — regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, or cultural heritage — benefit from being free to be our truest selves."
Followed by a panel discussion including filmmaker Lydia Nibley and LGBT/ Two Spirit healers; contemporary shaman, LGBT Jungian /depth psychologists, Native american two-spirit people.
