Zoom Workshop: Authenticity and Diversity

 —  —

All Souls Interfaith Gathering, 291 Bostwick Farm Rd., Shelburne VT

Please note that this workshop is for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. All, absolutely all are welcome.

When we don't fit the boundaries of the map that's been given to us, we have to find our own way forward. When we don't hear ourselves reflected in the language of the culture we inherit, we have to tell our own stories. Painful as this search for authenticity can be, it can also be a path that's rich with wisdom, creativity, and healing. And as we learn to find our own internal compass, we become more free to shine our unique divine light in the world.

Many queer people of faith know in our bones that the story of God we've inherited is simply not big enough to hold all the truth, beauty, and pain of this world. We know that god is in us, as we are in god, and an expansive, diverse vision of god belongs to all of us.

As a transgender interfaith minister, Rev Simon Ruth de Voil has spent his life learning to stand in his loving, embracing, and wildly unconventional vision of god. He encourages everyone—regardless of identity or sexual orientation—to seek out their own authentic and individual relationship with the god that speaks in their heart.

This afternoon workshop will combine short lectures with music, storytelling, and practices to help listen our way toward the unique voice of god in each of us.

Ticket $25 with scholarship option for those with low income (& lower priced BIPOC reparations tickets too). https://allsoulsinterfaith.networkforgood.com/events/25878-authenticity-in-diversity
