The Divine Feminine Emerging, Embodied & Emboldened
August 28-30, 2015
Ghost Ranch in New Mexico
Information and registration is available at http://www.ghostranch.org/retreat/the-divine-feminine-emerging-embodied-emboldened/
It is not just women who are marginalized after the long reign of patriarchy on our planet. So much having to do with “the feminine” is also devalued and silenced in the dominant culture of values, language, spirituality, education, politics, leadership and power in which we have been living for many generations. It is the air we have been breathing for so long that we are often unconscious about the ways it has shaped and formed (or deformed) our own personal experiences and expectations.
As women bring their leadership in the coming years – and as the Divine Feminine seeks to bring Her gift of healing to the world through those women – it will be important to consciously make room for new ways of doing things, for feminine wisdom brought in feminine ways. This will require nothing less than radically different definitions of what leadership looks like and how success should be measured.
We hope you can be there with us to relax and go deep during this weekend retreat
amid the spectacular beauty of Ghost Ranch in New Mexico.
This is the land of Georgia O’Keefe – where she came each summer to get away from the crowded city and to paint, inspired by the surroundings and colors. You too can find tranquility and inspiration on this land of extraordinary light with mountains, cliffs and plains, and the awesome presence of the night sky filled with stars. We are grateful for this opportunity to create a sacred circle in this beautiful environment, inviting the voices and deep wisdom of all who attend.
