January 26-28, 2018
This is the third annual women’s only property wide gathering at Esalen. This gathering is for all women who dare to express their radical visions and unique gifts in service to a world where all beings thrive. We invite trailblazers, thought and heart leaders, and paradigm shifters to join us in a wild experiment that takes us beyond time and space.
Through this Visionary Gathering, we generously support each other as sisters in order to create a more beautiful world. As co-creators of this experience, we:
- Gather as a whole group daily in ceremony, land honoring and celebration
- Convene in smaller ‘Collaboratory’ circles to support each other in bringing forward our sacred work and projects related to WisdomWomen Visionary Council topics and Collaboratory initiatives.
- Nurture ourselves through movement, bathing, nature and spontaneous connection with one another
- Share our visions, resources and support for the physical creation of our collective visions beyond the gathering
WisdomWomen members meet regularly to envision new systems of societal organization around topics such as Education, Governance, Intergenerational Community, Earth, Health & Well-being, Diversity, Economics, the Arts, Organizations, Sacred Sexuality, Media & Technology. This gathering is a gateway experience for continued radical co-creation as a community. WisdomWomen provides opportunities for attendees to connect before and beyond the gathering.
WisdomWomen requires participants to fill out this survey before registering. We take the time to get to know our attendees and introduce them into the community. Our convener and facilitation team uses information gathered from surveys to co-create the gathering with the emergent wisdom of the women in attendance.
Esalen is a place of pilgrimage, grounded in a wildly alive environment—the spectacular, unparalleled, convergence of mountains and water that is the Big Sur coastline. Learn more about Esalen, accommodations and pricing information here. View photos of the grounds and last year’s gathering here.

Michelle Stransky, Founder of WisdomWomen, believes that it is time for women to bring their deep wisdom forward into co-creating the life-affirming world we know is possible. Michelle was the conference director at Wisdom 2.0, where she played an intimate role in birthing an international movement around the intersections of wisdom, business and technology. A former management consultant and executive coach, she is now committed to using her gifts and skills to bring the vision of a new paradigm into form. Michelle is a convener, producer and collaborator. One of her greatest joys is in being a connector and so it is a great honor for her to be a weaver of the WisdomWomen web.
