Feminine spiritualities: the case of women's circles
- Maria del Rosario Ramirez Morales
Keywords: women's circles, sacred body, spirituality, feminism, mystical feminism.
ANDThis article aims to show the links and differences that are woven between alternative spiritualities and feminism through the analysis of women's circles as an archetypal model of female organization. Women's circles are taken as an ethnographic and empirical basis when they are considered spaces where religious and spiritual senses are recreated from non-ecclesial bases, collectivities highly influenced by the feminist perspective by allowing the recreation of women from themselves, their ways of believing and practice, and define and redefine oneself from own, bodily and experiential narratives.
