37th Annual Women and Spirituality Conference in Rochester

Women & Spirituality Conference

The Women and Spirituality Conference, to be held September 22 to 23, will be hosted for the second year in Rochester at the Mayo Civic Center. This conference was previously held in Mankato and produced by the University of Minnesota-Mankato for 35 years.

“If you are looking for spiritual renewal, healing services or to learn about the rich variety of religious traditions in our community, this conference will appeal to you,” shares Terri Allred, producer of the conference. “We have 60 workshop selections, more than 80 exhibitors and a Maker’s Space, new this year, providing the community with opportunities to create inspired art.”

The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Donna Mejia, assistant professor at CU Boulder in the Theatre and Dance department. This choreographer, scholar, director and performer will also be offering a dance workshop, Welcome to Planet Donna, on Friday morning, September 21.

Registration is available in advance and at the door for full-weekend passes or one-day passes. The conference also offers senior, student and limited income registration at almost half the full registration price. The Exhibit area and Maker’s Space are free and open to the public.
