The women mystics and goddesses of all spiritual traditions are connected to an aquifer – a deep wellspring of wisdom and vitality – that not only does the world urgently need but for which the world is at last ready. Thirsty. On fire. From these timeless sources we can draw cups of mercy, of healing, of intelligence and humor and hope, and pass them around in a spirit of celebration and inclusiveness.

In this webinar, we will focus on key issues that people of all genders are carrying in their hearts – matters such as care for the earth, standing with those on the margins, sexuality and relationships, cultivating contemplative life, and longing for the divine. For each topic we explore the wisdom of women mystics and goddesses who serve as way-showers for navigating that particular soul-terrain. We will be claiming our power and courage, yes, and also affirming the holiness of our vulnerability and unknowingness.
