They look to such traditional feminine activities as baking bread, spinning cloth, and quilting for spiritual enlightenment; and the they connect spirituality with wellness, pilgrimage, aging, and reverence for the Earth.
Dividied into five major section, the sixteen chapters in Midwives of an Unnamed Future operate as mini-retreats into sacred space to explore different aspects of women's spirituality. Each chapter includes suggestions for creating an environment helpful to contemplation, a reflection on the particular theme, questions to connect the topic with lived experience, and closing readings or songs to conclude a session and bring readers back into daily life. At the end of each chapter are ways of using the material in a group setting.
