Jackie attended a fourteen day pilgrimage to see the Black Madonnas in northeastern Spain. She will share her experiences and photos from this very spiritual journey. The lecture will trace the history of the dark sacred feminine as she appears in numerous images originating in the 11th and 12th centuries, usually called "The Black Madonna" or "The Black Virgin." Such Images are often the center of sacred sites, and many miracles have been attributed to the Black Madonna.
