CNS5039 Women's Power and Promise
This interactive course explores a rare convergence of two forces that reveal American women today as the driving force behind a new cultural awareness and transformed national consciousness. The two forces are (1) women’s current and historic levels of economic power and social influence, and (2) women’s unique connection for spirituality. These factors potentially place women—and those valuing feminine ways of being in the world, including men— at the forefront of social, cultural, political, economic and environmental change. In service of consciousness growth and systems change, this class considers new definitions of power and the cultivation of divine insights as a catalyst to direct women’s rising influence in the 21st century. Also discussed is the call for women to awaken globally, shadow implications and personal responsibility.
