The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence present a darshan of non-denominational ritual, empowerment, community building and release.
Friday evening after the first day of the summit, please come and join the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for a march from GWU to Dupont Circle.
Darshan is a sanskrit word, for all intents and purposes, meaning sight or vision. The Sisters have taken this word and have developed it into a ritual practice. Through confrontation, humor, graphic visuals, performance art (or lack of art), solemn representations, or a host of other unique media, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence encourage members in our community to explore queer pride and to explore how we can let go of the shame and guilt that has been dumped upon us by institutions.
No one (nun or human) will be harmed or sacrificed in the production of this darshan. No action or engagement will be taken without individual permission. But this will be an opportunity to witness nuns in action...and to engage the community as nuns do.
The summit takes place July 20th and 21st at George Washington University. This is just one of the 40 workshops and two plenary discussions taking place over the course of the summit.
