Wild Mercy: Feminine Wisdom Across the Spiritual Traditions
Time & Location
About The Event
As the fierce and tender voice of the feminine rises again, we are gifted with renewed access to the women mystics and wisdom beings across the spiritual traditions, such as Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Mary Magdalene, the Shekinah, Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses. In this gathering, we engage in contemplative readings from the mystics, group reflections, evocative writing exercises, interspiritual chanting, and silent sitting, weaving these luminous elements into a basket of awakened community. This course is suitable for women and men drawn to reclaim the hidden treasures of feminine wisdom in the world's religions and in contemporary poetry. You will come away from this course with knowledge of engaging practices designed to access archetypal feminine energies and cultivate an ongoing relationship with the sacred feminine; a greater awareness of mystical poetry by women from the past and present; a renewed vigor for carrying interspiritual feminine wisdom into your ministry and personal spiritual life; and increased awareness of feminine spiritual resources previously obscured by thousands of years of male-dominated religious traditions.
