In its second gathering of 2022, The Women's Wisdom Village will meet to bring women together to support each other. We will discuss the state of women's rights and share our experience of the cultural practice of silencing women. The patterns and practices of dismissing and silencing women’s speech are ancient and part of our civilization's roots; the silencing of women reaches back three thousand years.
How much of a woman’s life experience is unspoken?
How much is just below the surface?
How many of your thoughts and feelings have gone unexpressed because you’ve felt speaking up would cause drama, trouble, or friction at home with family, or issues with friends, or challenges with colleagues?
Despite all the gains women have made over the past 120 years, we still have to fight to be heard and respected in all areas of life.
The 2022 Village is here!
Each gathering will explore different folk tales, myths, goddesses, and archetypes from world mythology. Together we’ll discover how these ancient mythologies offer new perspectives on issues that concern Regent women today. As Regent Women—aged 45-70— we’re living in the most powerful stage of our lives. During these gatherings, in the company of women, we support each other and offer insights into making the most of our Regent years.
What can we learn from this? Where is our power, and how should we wield it? Join me to explore the ancient hopeful truths and powers that live within the myths of the universal experience of being a woman.
Dr. A. is a cultural mythologist and women’s coach. Connect with Dr. A., and like-minded women in monthly inspirational conversations held online about the big picture of being a woman in these times.
As women have done for millennia, we'll gather at the well (ours will be virtual) to support each other and find wisdom, insight, and clarity in uncertain times.
Enter the circle and:
Experience new ways of understanding what we are going through today, from the wisdom in ancient myths and stories.
Explore the legacy of wisdom from the deep universal experiences of being a woman.
Broaden and deepen our thinking about our outer and inner worlds.
Create a deeper connection to ourselves and with each other.
We can emerge from this uncertain time with a new story to tell about ourselves and our world and a new vision for our lives, our families, our communities, and our world.
The mini-workshops are Free. You will be sent a zoom link after you register.
Our conversations with Dr. A have physically calmed my nerves as well as given me thoughts to sustain me throughout the days in lock-down. Just looking at the bigger picture through history and myth has given me hope that all of this quarantine stuff is actually producing something beautiful in us. Dr. A has helped me to recognize that I'm faced with choices every day, to be a heroine or a victim, to be courageous or captive. These choices help to frame my ever-changing moods, allowing me to feel all of it and not to feel alone. The wisdom offered me in these cyberspace meetings has made all the difference in how I'm handling my new life, staying home and going within. I am committed to praying daily for the feminine energies of the homestead to impact our homes, our towns, our culture.
Dr. A's Women's Village has been a port in the storm for me through these uncertain times. She is an inspiration to me and has a deep and abundant knowledge of tools so pertinent to our current climate. Connecting with the divine feminine, the inner heroine, archetypes, and myths surrounded by a group of strong like-minded women has been profoundly heartwarming and life-affirming. I highly recommend this group for all of us looking to find meaning, solidarity, and hope right now.
Thank you Dr A!
