We are currently at a critical juncture in human evolution. More and more people are beginning to wake up to the depth and pervasiveness of the harm that patriarchal societies have wrought, including misogyny, sexual violence, institutionalized racism, economic oppression, and ecological devastation. Movements such as #MeToo, #TimesUp, #BlackLivesMatter, #IdleNoMore, and #NeverAgain are heralding transformative global change, and grassroots communities are developing new systems and paradigms for cooperation and spirit-based activism. Women are at the forefront of these movements, which include both new and traditional wisdoms, practices, and systems of knowledge, not only bringing a much-needed Sacred Feminist voice to the table, but altogether reinventing the table.

Our conference seeks to connect and amplify the voices of those who are actively building a new, post-patriarchal world from the ashes of the burning world of hierarchy and oppression. We invite visionaries, educators, artists, practitioners, care-workers, and change-makers to share their innovative projects and audacious dreams during this exciting 2.5-day conference.
