Women for Healing and Networking assembles women of various faith traditions to help us find unity. I spoke to the group about healing the various cancers in our lives. I compared my cancer healing journey to the different cancers we find in locally and globally, noting that the traditional ways we have been treating physical cancer have worked at the superficial level for decades but do not get to the root of the disease, and thus often recur. The same applies to the cancers in our society. We’ve been talking about some of the same societal diseases for a long time – such as racism and sexism - and pretending that we’re making advances by treating them in the same traditional ways when the truth is we are not progressing. If we are committed to healing our society, we need to move beyond our traditional remedies; they do not work.
