Abstract
Twenty-first-century Mormon women of all ages
continue to discover new avenues for expressing
their spirituality, developing spiritual gifts, and
coming to terms with patterns that haven’t served
them. As they adapt the old and integrate the new,
they create new spiritual possibilities for themselves
and ultimately for those who stand beside them and
come after them. In the tradition of past Sunstone
panels on human potential and women’s spirituality,
this panel explores the spiritual journey of Latter-day
Saint women who embark on alternate paths
through practices such as dreamwork, channeling,
and earth-based ritual, and who maintain (though
not without struggle) intimate relationships while
engaging in extra-Mormon spiritual practices.
