Women spiritual leaders are emerging more prominently than ever before across the major religions and spiritual traditions of the world. This auspicious trend is gradually eroding long-standing oppression of women’s spiritual leadership, and simultaneously uplifting the feminine aspects of the Divine in diverse religious and spiritual traditions. The purpose of this conference is to strengthen women in their spiritual life and vocation, and to build bridges of mutual support, collaboration, inspiration, and mentoring among women spiritual leaders and seekers across the spiritual and religious traditions.
It was such a blessing to do Touch Drawing in the virtual presence of so many dedicated women from around the world. Find out more about my work with Interpretive Touch Drawing.
