We are pleased to announce details for the 2021 Celebration of the Wisdom of Women webinar event to be held over two weekends in May. This year’s theme is ‘Building Bridges’, something that the world could currently nurture in order to engage in good discourse and to bring all closer to truth, love and happiness.

Two pairs of contemporary wise women will come together over the two weekends to share their work and the ways in which they create and cross bridges of understanding. Their mediums are varied, some classical, some contemporary or a combination of both. They provide deep, refreshing insights arising from experience, intelligence and practice. Audiences will be stimulated, entertained and touched and hopefully leave with a toolbox of ideas to consider for their own lives and practice.

Please see event details on the right hand side.
