Council | Honoring the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine: Partnership in Women’s & Men’s Leadership, From the Inside Out

Restoring and honoring the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine in our lives and communities is necessary to restore harmony with ourselves and with everything else in existence, and it begins in each of us. As the elders have said, nothing is created outside until it is created inside first. Leading from the “inside out” asks us to first embody the change we seek in the world, then what we do will become self-evident. Together, fellow Bioneers will explore the emerging paradigm of balancing the masculine and feminine, why it is important to our existence as human beings, and where it can lead us. How do we work together across the genders to restore a healthy balance between the masculine and feminine, the inner and outer dimensions of life? How do we apply this to our everyday leadership? With Ilarion Merculieff, Aleut traditional messenger; Sharon Shay Sloan, council trainer and community steward. Bioneers of all ages strongly invited to attend. (Double session.) (Interactive, experiential)
