Women's Spiritual Leadership Focus of CPWR Blog

The Women's Task Force and women's spiritual leadership were the focus today of an article posted to the blog of the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions.

The Task Force is one of many organizational partners working together on an upcoming women's conference -  Alchemy: Occupy your Sacred Self which will take place November 7-10 in San Francisco. Women of all faiths and spiritual traditions are invited to join this dynamic conversation about the nexus of women's spirituality and transformative leadership.

Here is a peak at the article posted today:


Anne Benvenuti, a Trustee of CPWR says, “’If women ran the world, what would it be like?’ a wondering, a longing, a frustration that I have often heard. There is a challenge in it, too.  A challenge to move beyond feelings of exclusion and frustration with obstacles, a challenge to be the change we want to see in the world. Can women claim power and voice while being true to their religious and spiritual paths? Yes! Can they find their voices as women, and not just imitate men in order to break into the circles of power? Yes!  Women of Spirit and Faith doesn't just talk about women's voices, but is a place for women's voices, for expression of the deepest spiritual longings of women's hearts, and for the transformation of those longings into creative action. The Women's Task Force of the Parliament is delighted to join in the journey of Alchemy with Women of Spirit and Faith. “
 
Enjoy the article.
