Visionary Gatherings are 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 experimentation that takes us beyond time and space.
Together we create a container of connection and support to share our grief, visions and wisdom. We gather in community to put our privilege and power to work in service of new possibilities for our world. Examples of what we engage in during the weekends include:
- Grieving the world we have built and envisioning a new reality
- Creating sacred space through ceremony, land honoring and celebration
- Experimenting with building new systems of organizing (i.e., Education, Language, Governance) through the practice of sacred collaboration
- Nurturing body and soul through movement, nature and spontaneous connection
WisdomWomen conveners listen for the unique theme and structure for each of our Visionary Gatherings by joining together in Council prior to our time together. Our convener and facilitation team uses information gathered from applications to co-create the gathering with the emergent wisdom of the women in attendance.
These gatherings are gateway experiences for continued radical co-creation as a community. WisdomWomen provides opportunities for attendees to connect before and beyond gatherings. The possibilities we birth are nurtured by our ongoing support network and offerings.

The theme for this gathering is ‘Women, Earth & the Conscious Body‘. We are calling on women from North, South and Central America to unite our privilege, indigenous wisdom and power in service to a world where all beings thrive. Together we will commune with the exquisite natural world, and allow the Earth to be our ultimate teacher and guide.
This will be our 2nd annual Visionary gathering at Tara Mandala. The theme of this gathering is ‘Sacred Sexuality’. We invite women who dare to express their radical visions and unique gifts in service to a world that honors the sacredness of women’s bodies and the body of our Earth. What is possible when women begin to co-create solutions for our world while utilizing their full life force?
