Circle Session: Sexuality & Spirituality

April 19th, 2014 ~ 2:30 to 5:00 PM

This circle will explore the intersection between sexuality and spirituality by discussing the following questions: What do our spiritual wisdom traditions say about sexuality? Is it possible to be sexual and spiritual? How do we claim our bodies and experiences as sacred in today’s world? It will be an opportunity for the community to honor and illuminate how we experience the world through our various identities, lifestyles and beliefs. There will be theatrical offerings performed by artists, testimonials, conversation and ritual.

We will be joined by Interfaith Minister, Yoruba Priestess & ILERA Founder, DeShannon Bowens. ILERA is an organization committed to raising awareness about sexuality, spirituality and sexual abuse through innovative educational programs and healing services. For more information about DeShannon or ILERA visit

We also will have award winning singer-songwriter, Nhojj, who has bestowed many Circle Sessions with his graceful spirit and gloriously golden voice.

So come and hang out with us on a Saturday afternoon whether it’s your first time or you’re a regular.

The Peoples Monastery provides a safe space where all are welcome. This is a place for urban and nature dwellers alike. It truly is a circle.
