This event is of course a celebration of the life and work of Marija Gimbutas. At the same time, the symposium also gives us the opportunity to honor and acknowledge others who have journeyed to the "realm of the ancestors." We want to provide a space to remember other mentors, colleagues, family, and friends whose encouragement and wisdom continue to inspire us. Please feel free to add the names of important people that you want to honor and remember.
We are all shaken to learn of the passing of Carol Christ on July 14, 2021. A beloved daughter or the Goddess, she influenced so many and was instrumental in bringing her to the forefront in these times. May she rest gently in the arms of the Mother with our love and gratitude for her work here.
