We are ready to embody a womanhood that merges ancient wisdom with our current day reality, one that honours the duality of life; darkness and light dancing, chaos and order, feminine and masculine. A radiant womanhood that can heal, awaken and unite to bring forth a better future for ourselves and the world.
The Feminine speaks a different language than just words. It’s emotion. Intuition. That which is in your body and not just in your head. The web that binds things together. The link between generations. The feeling when you inhale the smell of the forest or walk barefoot in the grass. A silent whisper, a thunderstorm. Giving birth. The seemingly chaotic, spontaneous, yet so vastly advanced and intelligent creativity in nature from which life itself grows. That which is so powerful that it sometimes frightens us.
While both the Feminine and the Masculine is present in all humans, no matter their gender, the feminine generally manifests itself more clearly in women, as the masculine does in men. The feminine and the masculine are polarities, not in opposition, but rather like magnetic poles, day and night, chaos and order, sensing and direction, yin and yang – they need each other for their very existence. With the duality of masculine and feminine integrated and combined harmoniously, life can exist. With one of them being unbalanced, we see stagnation, harmful growth or oppression.
For centuries, women have fought for their equal right to freedom. We truly honour the paths our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers have walked in order for us to be free. While we cherish what has been achieved, it still remains true that Western society was mainly created on masculine values and that most women are adapting to systems and lifestyles that were not designed for us.
We feel that something profound has been lost. We believe that the life-creating ability of the feminine has been undervalued, with severe consequences as a result – for both women, men and the planet. As our current systems and world views are dismantling, we are longing to live more aligned with our truth. Rather than focusing on deconstructing what is, we want to build what could be. We want to gather the women who are ready to now act beyond anger or resentment – but rather stand in the unquestionable, invulnerable and juicy power of our true nature. We want to explore what true feminine leadership looks like and believe in creating an inspiriting vision of womanhood – a vision created from the feminine, a story that is unfolding in this current moment:
We want to celebrate our ability to create, give and nourish life and acknowledge the power and importance of motherhood. We want to deepen and lead from our pleasure, sensuality and lust – acknowledging them as our life force. We want to cherish our wisdom to step confidently into the unknown, trusting our intuition to illuminate the most veiled of possibilities. We want to honour and acknowledge the matriarchal qualities of feminine leadership in all areas of life and bring out our feminine power as radiant, vibrant, spiritual, crazy, playful, loving, passionate, vulnerable, strong and free.
On this journey, we believe that women are each others’ greatest source of inspiration. We believe that being part of a strong sisterhood, where we can inspire, learn, challenge, create and love each other with all our strengths and weaknesses, is fundamental. To fully see the Feminine within ourselves, we need to see it in each other. We wish to acknowledge and bring out the life force in all women as we are greater together.
We believe we are at a threshold. The way forward is not regressing to traditional values where women only belonged in the household nor is it to continue adapting to masculine values. What we want is an awakening of feminine leadership, creating a new vision for what it means to be a woman today. As we step into our full radiant power, we encourage our brothers, fathers, sons, friends and lovers to do the same. Through sisterhood we will support each other to reach our highest potential, supporting men to reach theirs, so that we can lift each other up in compassion, love and understanding in order to build the world we want to see.
Rather than seeing ourselves as oppressed in the patriarchy, we are stepping into the Matriarchy that will, in union with the Patriarchy, form a Humanarchy, laying the foundations for a future we can believe in.
Nordic Women’s Gathering is the embodiment of the Womiphesto. If you feel inspired by the Womiphesto, we hope you will join us.
Each and every one of us 130 women will play an important role in the energy created. The gathering is more than merely an experience or personal healing journey – the purpose is to bring together the women who are ready, with the support of sisters, to awaken feminine leadership and step into a womanhood that we and the world is longing for.
The weekend will be led by some of the most inspiring facilitators in Northern Europe who in various ways embody a womanhood of the future. Through three festival style days of workshops, inspiration, dancing, celebration and connection, the facilitators will hold space for all participants to explore, challenge, embrace and encourage each other to:
Connect to our wild life force, radiant lust, body, sexuality and intuition.
Surrender to trust the divine, step into the unknown, embrace chaos.
Integrate the masculine qualities of holding space for the feminine to be free.
Realize and lead from the feminine power, stepping into the Matriarchy.
Create the foundation for a sisterhood of love, respect and admiration - as we are each others’ greatest source of inspiration.
