Benefit Memorial Celebration for Merlin Stone
September 24, 2011 11am-3pm
Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater
2470 Nursery Road
Clearwater, FL 33764
Benefit admission donation required
Yes, there is an admission donation price because we have to pay for the facilities, for the cost incurred in making a documentary, for the costs incurred in publishing a book, and for the costs incurred in producing a globally accessible memorial service. There will be very notable people attending this memorial service and we will be filming the service itself. This is a her-storical moment in time when the women’s spirituality community comes together to remember the life of a remarkable woman, Merlin Stone. All of us can help keep Merlin’s memory alive by donating either through attending her memorial or by donating online at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bobbiegrennier/in-search-of-merlin-stone.
We will be providing a live video stream from the memorial out to the Internet. Gather your groups or participate individually, but we are working to make sure that all of you can participate in some way. We will be sharing more information with you on the MerlinStone.net website. So, mark you calendars for September 24th!
There are three projects in the works.
- Benefit Memorial Celebration
It was a few weeks before Merlin’s passing, Bobbie and I had been looking for her for over four years now and to no avail. My Bobbie hears things sometimes, and she came downstairs and told me we were going to do a documentary called In Search of Merlin Stone. We didn’t really understand the depth of that whisper in her ear, but now it makes perfect sense.
The DVD, In Search of Merlin Stone, will be a lovely documentary chronicling our search for Merlin; and will include some of the other women who have also passed on. We are contacting everyone we can find who knew Merlin and could share stories with the world about her. If that’s you, please email me!
The book, also titled In Search of Merlin Stone, is an anthology of remembrances, articles discussing Merlin’s influences and academic white papers. If you would like to participate in the book project, please email me and explain your contribution.
This is a huge undertaking. We need all of you to help get the word out about this event … make it go viral sisters! We can never repay the debt of what Merlin Stone did for women’s spirituality, but we can give her the accolades of this memorial service.
