Through observing the ancient practices of marking the new moon, students learn to deconstruct and re-vision traditional religious stories, gain new understandings about their own bodies and of their roles in society, and thus re-write the narratives of their own lives. This course builds from the radical and inspiring work of our predecessors in feminism; Judy Grahn, Paula Gunn Allen, Savina Teubel, Jenny Kien, Lynn Gottlieb, Marcia Falk, Women of the Wall, and Women Wage Peace.
