Description

The Feminine and the Seeds of the Future

The feminine holds the mystery of creation. This simple and primordial truth is often overlooked, but at this time of global crisis, which also carries the seeds of a global transformation, we need to reawaken to the spiritual power and potential of the feminine.’ - Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

This programme will explore the role the feminine has to play in birthing the future we long for. We will ask, what if we treated the Earth as our mother? What if we re-infused our culture with feminine values of interconnectedness, embodiment and reverence for all life? What if we changed our concept of activism so it was grounded in the feminine principles of listening, receiving, holding space and giving nourishment?

This programme will include:

A series of public talks and one-day workshops on different aspects of the feminine.

February 2, 6.30 pm: Mac Macartney. The Feminine and the Seeds of the Future.

March 2 , 6.30 pm: Hilary Hart. Men, Women, Masculine, Feminine - Making Sense of the Two in the One.

March 4, 10 – 5 pm: Hilary Hart, one day workshop

Women’s Circle

This programme offers a small group of women a chance to explore the feminine through a series of workshops. The idea is to create a shared community of practice over the course of 4 months, supporting each other to apply feminine principles in action in service to life. Collectively we will work with feeling, relationship, intuition and receptivity as pathways of discovery. When considering what ‘feminine action in service to life’ means to us, we will measure the impact by how the action feels, what beauty it brings, and whether it sparks greater intimacy and connection within the web of life.

The women’s circle comprises: 1 introductory workshop (1 day); a series of evening gatherings, held on the 3rd Friday of each month in March, April and May, and free entry to evening public talks

Participants will be offered:

- a space to connect, through meditation, ritual, discussion

- a safe, structured context in which to explore putting feminine principles in action

- a community of people to work with and to learn from, and collaborative tools to support the exchange of energy and ideas

Participants will be asked to:

…engage in a project or outer practice that puts feminine principles into action. The nature of each person’s contribution will be unique to them. Some people might have existing projects that they are already working on. Others may wish to offer support to other people’s visions. For some, taking action from the feminine may mean bringing care and attention to seemingly small, intimate things. For others it may involve stepping up to leadership on a bigger scale. However each person feels drawn to act is valid, there is no right or wrong way. The point is to commit to do something, to give and receive help from within the group, and to be willing to share what you have learned.

This series of events is sponsored by workingwithoneness.org and is part of an on-going work exploring the vital contribution of feminine wisdom and her principles of interconnection, inclusion, compassion, co-creation and unity.

These events are hosted by Clare Martin (clare@workingwithoneness.org).
