To Explore: Divine Feminine
Project Questions
1) What is the divine feminine? How can we manifest what we cannot see?
2) What internalized oppression do women in leadership experience?
3) What is the denied feminine? What is the twisted masculine? How do we embody patriarchy?
4) How are the five wisdom energies a pedagogy for leadership?

To gather a group of 5 leaders, 7 facilitators, and 28+ practitioners from a variety of
traditions and cultural backgrounds to empower each other and create connections that
ripple outward and inward for years to come.
