28th Annual Women of Wisdom Conference
Theme: Radiate Loving Harmony – Unite our World
Keynote Saturday: On the Threshold of the Age of Artemis

The day after the Trump inauguration, women’s’ marches “happened"—they rose as an idea that went viral on the internet, and word of it moved us to go. It felt like a calling for me to board a plane for Washington DC, as others did in cities and towns across the United States, soon after the “me-too” movement and the numbers of women running for office. Like waves that arise deep in the ocean and gain momentum until they rise as huge waves when they reach shore, so has it been for waves of feminism. The first wave was the Women’s suffrage movement, which began with five women sitting around a table organizing a women’s conference in Seneca Falls in 1848. After years of perseverance, organizing, ridicule and jailing, women finally got the right to vote, with the final state ratifying the 19th amendment in 1920. The next wave began toward the end of the 1960s, with Consciousness Raising groups and conferences, making 1970s the decade of women and the rise of feminism, including the first UN World Conferences on Women in 1975. The 1980s saw a rise of women’s spirituality in California through two significant conferences, the rise of ritual, of circles, and the return of the goddess as archetypes (Goddesses in Everywoman)  and as the Divine Feminine. We are in a liminal time, on the threshold of the rise of the sisterhood of the divine daughter, the Age of Artemis.(Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman) 

Workshop Sunday: Stages of Women’s Lives and Circles with a Sacred Center


In this workshop, participants will gain information to apply to themselves: learning how stages of women’s lives parallel the phases of the moon and are aspects of the Great Goddess as Maiden-Mother-Crone. Besides learning about circles with a sacred center, there will be an opportunity to be in a circle with others, trusting that synchronicity or meaningful coincidence to arrange them. Envisioned outcome: the workshop will inspire participants to form new circles, or transform book groups, mothers’ groups, or recovery groups into circles with a sacred center. My own mission since 2002, has been working toward  having a 5th World Conference on Women, now focused on India 2022. A circle can be transformative, affecting its members, which can be over one’s lifetime, and is also one more on the way to reach the metaphoric millionth circle, the tipping point which quietly ends hierarchy, power-over, replacing the underlying structure of patriarchy.

Feathered Pipe Ranch Retreat
Women's Wisdom: Summer Solstice Women's Retreat
Jean Shinoda Bolen & Monika Wikman


Join Jean Bolen & Monika Wikman, acclaimed authors, Jungian analysts and activists, on a journey to the inner realm of self-discovery and empowerment. Together, we will tune into womb wisdom, our connection to Mother Earth, moon cycles and the particular seasons of our lives, as the land provides the ‘alchemical vessel’ for our exploration, integration and growth.  


The Summer Solstice Women’s Retreat supports women who wish to explore their inner lives in an exquisitely nourishing nature setting. Together, we will tune into womb wisdom, our connection to Mother Earth, moon cycles and the particular seasons of our lives, as the land provides the ‘alchemical vessel' for our exploration, integration and growth. We will meet in large and small circles throughout the week, all connected by a sacred center, listening to stories and myths that teach us how to use archetypal energies to guide and direct our lives.  Tapping into highly experiential modalities such as Jung’s active imagination, dreamwork, art, journal writing, movement, bodywork, time in nature and ritual, we will ‘seed’ the imagination in a sacred process of deep inner exploration and self-expression. Building the shared field in community, this workshop brings to life the enriching fruits of inspiration, fresh perspective, compassion, shadow integration, healing, insight and laughter.
