“Disability is a generative force. It’s magic. It really teaches me to be more thoughtful and aware of myself and my body, my body-mind in community. And as Alice Wong has put it so beautifully- disabled people are oracles.” (Alex Locust, Glamputee from the Society of Disabled Oracles).
In this CLGS CSR (Certificate of Sexuality and Religion) workshop, led by Maij Mai and open to all, we will elevate and uplift Queer and Disabled forms of spiritual wisdom and formation by exploring the following questions:
- How do queer disabled communities transform our socio-spiritual relationship to time, space, and embodied existence?
- How do these communities invite us to deepen our spiritual/faith practices by deepening the connection that we have to our own embodied needs? and
- How can we resist disabling narratives and systems that steer us away from trusting our embodied intuition?
