Jeanne Adamson Memorial Lecture - Brescia College
Thursday, May 17, 2012
I'm honoured to be giving the 2012 Jeanne Adamson Memorial Lecture for Brescia College's Sophia Series, sponsored by The Circle Women's Centre for Spirituality, Activism & the Earth.
The Circle Women’s Centre is a unique program and resource centre serving women in the London community and beyond, as well as the students of Brescia University College, the University of Western Ontario and the affiliate colleges. The Circle focuses on feminist spirituality, its theory and practice by women in contemporary society. We welcome women from diverse experience and backgrounds, and as such maintain a broad based view of spirituality, honouring the riches of all religious traditions and expressions.
Inspired by the feminist perspective “the personal is political,” The Circle also aspires to enlighten and enliven women on a wide range of issues such as activism, social justice, environmentalism, women’s rights, human rights, feminism and feminist spirituality. The Circle ispart of the vibrant women's network on campus and in the London area. It links with and supports other women's groups in the community who work to dismantle unjust structures and to embody life-giving relationship with all that is created.

When I was a child I loved finding things…a jar of my grandmother's old buttons, a cigar box filled with boy scout badges and river stones, a flouncy party dress pushed to the back of my mother's closet - circa 1955. With every relic I discovered, there came a story. Real or imagined, the tales that surrounded each object were magic, making the 'thing' more immediate, something more than it was before I'd found it.
Fact or fiction, fantastic, joyful or sad, stories make us more than we were before we found them. Welcome to my shoebox of buttons, sealing wax and scribblings.
