WisdomWomen is a growing movement of women who believe it is time to look in a revolutionary new direction and build our world from a different paradigm. We are not asking whether or not this can be done. We are claiming that it is ours to do.
This Visionary Gathering will be convened by our Sacred Sexuality Council, to support women in birthing their sacred work through the wisdom of the womb. We invite women who are ready to play their part in the new world reality. Together we will co-create a sacred field of collaboration where new possibilities can be conceived and where existing visions and initiatives can be nurtured in sisterhood.
This will be an opportunity to co-create solutions for our world while utilizing our full life force and body wisdom. We will access the fertility of a collective feminine field that is rising in the world.
During our gathering, attendees act as both leaders and participants. We invite the women in attendance to co-create a gathering where we:
- Nurture our selves and our sisterhood through movement, ceremony and connection to the Earth
- Reclaim our bodies, sexuality, sensuality and the unique wisdom we each hold through guided practices and activities
- Envision and collaborate on initiatives while honoring and celebrating our bodies, sensuality and feminine wisdom
- Allow the emergent wisdom of the group field to guide our time together
Visionary Gatherings are a gateway experience for continued radical co-creation as a community. WisdomWomen’s ongoing Visionary Council on Sacred Sexuality, as well as our support network and other offerings, will nurture the possibilities we birth together.
WisdomWomen will be inviting women into this gathering through an application process so we can learn about our participants and weave them into the group.

Tara Mandala is an international Vajrayana Buddhist community in the mountains of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. It is guided by Lama Tsultrim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom and Feeding Your Demons. Bordered by the San Juan National Forest and Southern Ute Tribal Land, the retreat center is on 700 acres of rolling hills and meadows, offering refuge and renewal. Its heart is the extraordinary three-story mandala Tara temple that houses statues of the 21 Taras.
The sacredness of this land and community makes it the perfect place to host our Visionary Gathering on Sacred Sexuality. You can learn more about Tara Mandala, accommodations and pricing information by clicking on this link. We recommend a visit to the amazing hot springs of Pagosa Springs before or after the gathering.
