Female Spirituality, together with the force of nature, heart and wisdom have made this dream a reality!
The dream of an active and nourishing female solidarity is now being lived in our circles, ceremonies, gatherings and day to day lives. It is being lived with more consciousness than ever before in our recent history! What is an institute? Formally an institute is an organization with a particular purpose, especially one involved with science, education or a specific profession. So, what criteria does the SFR Institute offer?
She (SFR) offers education to women about their female history thereby informing and empowering female worth, vision and creation. What does this do for women? We feel that it emanates within them a certain ‘feeling’ vibration of self knowing, trust in their abilities and appreciation for self as female. Our further dream is to share or extend this vibration of reality into greater spheres of experience. For instance….with you!
What does the SFR Institute offer? What is its primary role and functions?
SFR offers women the Medicine Woman Training and other professional venues to directly experience themselves as spiritually worthy beings. This is achieved through the appreciation, resonance and education of the role that female spirituality plays in our lives, friendships and partnerships. As well as in our global and local communities and neighborhoods. Especially in our motherhood roles! Women are the caregivers to the next generation. What a worth to have the courage and intelligence to teach ones children how to meditate, to self introspect, to heal, to know, to listen actively and to feel worthy without needing things!
So, who is this emerging spiritual woman? We ask and seek to answer this question in our forum, blog pages, Medicine Woman Training, workshops and articles all while observing how history, culture and religion have shaped our developing ‘call to empowerment’.
For example; How have these roles informed and enlightened our paths?
*Herstory: How culture, myth and science tell our female stories. Did you know that the science of Paleomedicine has proven that women could only give birth once ever 4 years during the Paleolithic ear? What does this mean? (read HERstory)
*Shamanism: The ancient and first spirituality now reborn in contemporary form – what does it teach and tell us about our female empowerment?
*Teaching: Women as the teachers of present and future knowledge.
*Midwifery: How midwives became the first healers and the political ramifications of their work.
*Healers, Medicine Women and Female Doctors: Evolution of women roles & empowerment.
*Yoga & Meditation: Woman as Yogini, an accepted spiritual role for women & where it is taking us.
IN these pages we hope that you will find yourself and your stories within the experiences of others and may they reflect the light of consciousness into your being. See you in the circles sisters!
