Don't leave me lost in the Underworld: Accessibility justice and Pagan Rituals

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many of us strive to be inclusive of all bodies in ritual, yet we live in an ableist overculture that can make it challenging to even understand what radical access might be. In this workshop, we will discuss and share how the language we use, how we manage transitions, and set-up ritual spaces can open or close possibilities for participants. The presenters are three disabled, queer and trans, Reclaiming witches with white privilege who will facilitate an honest, humorous and constructive conversation about why accessibility justice matter in Paganism. We will share experiences and learning moments, and encourage participants to do so as well. Come prepared to descend into discomfort so that we can emerge into a broader understanding of accessibility.
