This is a quick, last minute shout-out for a free 1 hour webinar by Lasara Firefox Allen today, Wed August 17 at 6pm PST. I had the pleasure of taking it a few days ago and want to share the opportunity with any of you out there who identify with the clever title of this offering. I wrote Lasara to give her some feedback afterwards, here is an excerpt from what I wrote…
“I wanted to send a note to say how much I appreciated the webinar you offered. I thought it was really simple and effective. Your willingness to lay out some of your political and philosophical beliefs really helped me to open up to what you were offering as I have similar feelings about new-agey theories about manifesting that totally ignore the realities of oppression. I liked that you talked about women’s labor being undervalued and how you included men working in traditional women’s fields of work. In all the self-employment and even in social entrepreneurial trainings I have done, my politics have seemed to be a liability, my teachers where never able to engage me on the level that I needed to feel like I was bringing my whole self. I feel like I could do deep work with you based on this common ground. So thanks for all that. I am excited to dig into the workbook and get started on the exercises. I feel really called to it.”
So if this sounds at all intriguing, I recommend you check it out, get to know Lasara and her work because she’s amazing. Here is the link to register for the webinar, which you can go back to and watch as a recording later (as I did) and she even gives you a free 16 page pdf on Primer on Manifestation Magick if you stay to the end! I hope you join her.
Also, in the coming weeks I will be posting an in depth review of her brand new book, Jailbreaking the Goddess: a Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality, out on Llewellyn.
Beautiful Resistance is the journal of the Gods and Radicals website, which has become my favorite place to read anti-capitalist and radical political writing rooted in Earth-based spiritual frameworks. In November they released their first issue of the print and pdf journal (which I just picked up and I now hold in my hands! Excited to dive in…). They’re just announced the call for #2, which is due by March 1st.
