From left to right: Kathe Schaaf, Mohini Mundy and Kay Lindahl - core circle members of WSF

FINALLY...We can’t help but notice that the world seems to have suddenly ‘discovered’ the value of women. After thousands of years living in the shadow of the masculine, after being pushed into the margins of power and leadership, after being silenced in every cultural institution – including most of the major world religions - the media today is full of messages that it is time to listen to women’s wisdom.Women’s leadership styles are being acknowledged widely in diverse segments of the … [Read more...]

Distractions & the Dark Feminine

Magdalen_Bowyer

I launched a conversation about depression a few months ago asking this question: What if it’s not depression, as we’ve come to think of it, but rather a sign of our profound unhappiness and dissatisfaction?The question demands we get honest.Observing my own life, these are some of the things I’ve discovered to be true for me: I don’t enjoy cooking, I’d rather be brewing words on the page; I love good company and great conversation but I’m not interested in inviting you over for dinner; I … [Read more...]

The Story of My Feminine Soul

Sleeping_Beauty

Early as a child, I lost my innocence through a physical trauma.  Psychologically, I was thrown out of Eden before I was ready. As a teen, I had friends, but there was a longing deep within me that I couldn’t articulate.  To compensate for packing in the head knowledge, I rode horses.  Being in the natural world rebalanced me. That balance was lost in the years of academic education and professional success.  My essential feminine nature went into the shadows.  As I embraced the masculine value … [Read more...]

Imagination is more important than knowledge…

lolly_odea polvinale

.....and yet another “sign” that I may be emerging from a denser fog than I once imagined. Let me clarify. Seeing the quote from Albert Einstein, who has been my newest best friend these last number of years, triggered a dazzling light bulb moment. Who would have thought? A brilliant, scientific mind who quotes the wisdom of the ages with more relevance to spirit than science. His photo hangs on my studio wall, and some of his quotes echo around my brain regularly. He got me with “sacred gift” a … [Read more...]

Noticing who I am right now

denise_casey

Who am I right now… I am a fledgling bird preparing her wings for flight out of yet another nest, an 85-year old woman who’s not done writing yet, a baby born into so much love his heart actually beats louder just to say, “me too. I love you too.” a man who walks through desert after desert and still follows truth like a sword that was placed early in his heart, a 65-year old dog who never stopped learning new tricks, two curious and eager girls on a walk with their dad that want to know y … [Read more...]

The War on Women at Work

Paul_baby

Paul is a civil servant, a Blues DJ for Mod Radio and an aspiring author.If you had asked me a few years ago about the ‘war on women’ I would most probably have answered, “What?” and asked you to stop blocking the TV. As a chap who since age 16 has worked predominantly with female bosses and studied predominantly under female teachers, it genuinely never occurred to me that women still suffered workplace inequalities or were discriminated against in other ways. The War on Women was … [Read more...]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lana Dalberg is a mother, author, and member of “herchurch” (Ebenezer Lutheran) in San Francisco, CA where she has led many writing and spirituality workshops. The debate over the power of government to regulate and control women’s reproductive abilities —just one aspect of the war on women — builds on a long history of women’s subjugation. Women’s ability to connect, conceive, and create life has always vexed those who aspire to dominate. Starting in the second millennium BC, w … [Read more...]
