We often hear these days that women are going to change the world and that we're the ones we’ve all been waiting for. But, we have to change ourselves in order to change the world. Entrenched patterns in our psyches and culture that go back generations too often dog our attempts to move beyond the status quo. Even with the breakthroughs of the last fifty years, old impulses, desires and beliefs still largely dictate our identities as women.
While each one of us bears the weight of history, we also hold the potential to transform it. Fifty years after the women’s liberation movement radically altered the cultural landscape, women are in a paradoxical position: we have the freedom to make choices that have been denied to women since the beginning of civilization, and yet we have little context for navigating these choices other than our own personal preferences. Evolution provides us with the greater context we need to take the next step, not only as women, but as human beings at the leading edge of culture.
Such an evolutionary transformation is the essence of “the next women’s liberation.” This liberation frees us from the past in order to make room for us to express something truly new. It is a profound spiritual liberation-not something we have to fight for, but something that we have to work for.
And so, this is a group for women who want to take responsibility for consciously creating the future. We're coming together to discuss these critical issues so we can think more deeply about where we've come from and the future we want to create together. We hope you'll join us.
