Prevalence of the Feminine

Announcement: A Conference workshop to be led collectively by Sr. Susthama Kim, John Nugent, Yaakov Matri and Lynn Grounds on "The Prevalence of the Feminine"
All of us have feminine and masculine qualities but to what extent does the feminine one prevail in today's society? For some, this aspect may be hidden or locked up and needs to be freed in order to bring balance and peace to the world around us.
