"What does it mean to reclaim the feminine? It means to honor our sacred connection to life that is present in every moment." -Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Golden Sufi Center
Values in the service of life and connection, such as empathy, love, compassion, cooperation, and peacemaking have been the qualities characteristically associated with the feminine model for millennia. The inclusion of long-missing feminine values is a vital component to enable a greater holistic balance in society. The feminine paradigm is neither male nor female. Rather, it is the potential quality in men and women that fosters integration and interconnection.
To balance the growing mindfulness movement, GPIW through the Contemplative Alliance has organized a series of dialogues on Awakening the Wisdom of the Heart. Mindfulness is a key spiritual principle but cannot reach its potential without an awakening of the heart. It is love that heals. It is love that enlivens and fulfills. It is love that guides us through an inner whispering, and human progress now demands that we learn to turn within and listen.
