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:
