About Yvette:  Yvette McDonnell is Seminarian in her last semester at Starr King School for the Ministry. She is the actualization of her ancestor's dreams. Yvette's spiritual formation is rooted in African spirituality, ancestral knowledge, and earth and goddess-based intuitive healing. She is connected with all beings in the material world and the other worlds that exist; the dream world, the world where our ancestors have passed, and everything in between. Yvette's ministry is grounded in relational and social justice- Which she profoundly believes is spiritual work. Yvette appreciates the offerings of Yielbongura, a Dagara word that means 'the thing that knowledge can't eat.' This word suggests that the life and power of certain things depend upon their resistance to the categorizing knowledge that human beings apply to everything. In Western reality, there is a clear split between the spiritual and the material, between religious and secular life. Yvette believes her liberation is working in spaces creating realities that do not exist yet, which allows her to plant seeds for future generations.
