Embracing the Divine Feminine: Guides to Holding Balance in Difficult Times

November 13 / 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Throughout history humankind has had two parallel streams of creativity; one has been the masculine and the other the feminine. In western culture the masculine has dominated while in most eastern and native populations the feminine has been more evident – or, even, dominant.

Throughout nature we see that a balance of the two dynamic energies are necessary for wholeness, harmony and centeredness. Many believe that much of the current turmoil we are seeing in the world is a direct result – and outgrowth, really, of a world out of balance with the natural interplay of the masculine and the feminine.

In this daylong Nov. 13th retreat we will explore the rich tradition of the Divine Feminine goddesses as holding the seeds of both creation and destruction. We will honor the teachings of the Divine Feminine as the sustainer of heritage, cyclic time and rites of passage and pay homage to woman as healer and seer of guarded mysteries.

Nature’s balance of feminine and masculine is a model of the kind of balance and centeredness one needs in life and most especially in the kind of stressful times many are now experiencing.

By examining the goddess energy as exemplified by such goddess figures Kali, Durga, Radha, Parvati, Kwan Yin, Tara and White Calf Buffalo Woman we can see another path to consciousness which speaks to all, both male and female, who desire the kind of balance and serenity essential to all during difficult times.
