“We serve the common good as active, conscious-feminine leaders in traditional and non-traditional communities of practice, bringing deeply rooted wisdom wherever it is welcome.”
Context, Method, Aims
Context and Methodology: Conscious Feminine Leadership is necessarily contextual and organic within a community of practice, crafting conscious webs of relationship to root in the city of one’s core-circle and deepen there in streams of mentoring and collegiality upon the conclusion of the training. This CFLT is an open discernment with all interested women who have found themselves connected to the Central Ohio WWfaC affiliate, serving the circles in Dayton and Columbus, Ohio. [Women interested in ConFem training but living elsewhere without a local core-circle may be in touch with WWfaC in Cincinnati (www.womenwriting.org) or WWfaC in Bloomington, Indiana (https://womenwritingbloomington.org)].
Our method: Discern together, write-sit-play deeply, lean into discomforts for growth, mirror gifts and challenges gently, and integrate together, slowly.
