2011-12 program is completed. There are no future programs planned at this time.
Exploring the Full Spectrum of the Sacred Feminine
Our 2011-12 program consists of four retreats from July 2011 to January 2012. Each retreat will meet Thursday through Sunday all day. We welcome women of all ages and all backgrounds who wish to open to and embody the sacred feminine. This program will be a continuation and deepening of our 2010 pilot program in which we explored access and embodiment of the awakening feminine. We are offering an optional year in 2012 in which participants will be mentored to create a project—their own unique offering to their community or the world at large.
We draw inspiration from the feminine wisdom that has been transmitted through the world's spiritual traditions: such as from the Shekinah, Sophia, Tara, Mary as well as from human women such as Hildegard of Bingen and Mirabai of India. We also study the biographies of women activists such as Harriet Tubman and Aung San Suu Kyi. We engage in the spiritual practices of meditation, chanting, inquiry, movement and the practice of presence. In dyads, triads and in the group women engage in deep processes of inquiry and reflection.
The purpose is for each woman to be able to access the Divine Feminine directly in her own experience and to be in touch with her own wisdom and guidance. In order for this to happen we need to work through the patterns in our personal history that has shaped and limited our relationships, creativity, and engagement with the depth and breadth of our lives. This process allows us to more fully embody and express the awakening feminine in our world today.
Our program creates a transformational vessel to nurture each woman's process. We envisage the potential of each person to:
- open to innate beauty at the core of herself
- develop the discernment to balance love with clarity and strength
- pierce through the distortions and myths about the feminine that have bound and limited us as women
- allow the ever present stream of grace to flow through her
- know herself as the silence and mystery of true nature
- embody the vibrant essence of her being
