On Feminine Ground: The Alchemy of our COLLECTIVE Wisdom and Strength
This event was first hosted by a planning circle convened by Women of Spirit and Faith in advance of the 2015 Parliament of Worlds Religions in Utah to prepare women leaders for the dynamic week ahead. About 80 women met in circles where we practiced Circle Principles to anchor our voices, practice sacred listening, and recognize the power of our wisdom. Because of its success, a small group of us decided to bring it to the next Parliament in Toronto in 2018 for 200 women (with a wait list) with a planning committee of U.S. and Canada based women. S.A.R.A.H. then brought this Alchemy event to the Commission of the Status of Women in advance of the opening of 2 weeks of the UN Commission of The Status of Women with the help of NY based women. We are now bringing our signature Alchemy event to the first ever virtual Parliament event.
Toronto Alchemy Event 2018
The Alchemy of Women's Collective Wisdom and Power
Together we prepared ourselves and one another for the dynamic week ahead of The Parliament of World's Religions. We prayed, danced, sat in small thoughtful dialogue circles, each with their own altar. Each topic led by inspirational thought leaders. Then, we all participated in a memorable water ceremony and that collective water, in its copper vessel, resided for the full week on the altar of the Lodge of Nations, prepared and presided over by indigenous peoples. Now we are bringing that alchemical magic on line! We hope you will join us!
