Reimagining Women & Power: A Conversation with Riane Eisler
"In this conversation with Riane, we will explore her academic approach, the key findings of her famous book The Chalice and the Blade, the myth of war as human nature, transcending binary thinking and understanding the power-over paradigm and how we transform it, and more."
Women & Power: Reclaiming & Reimagining Power in the World Today
"How can we redefine narratives of domination and create new cultures of power grounded in interdependence and liberation?
For centuries, power has been synonymous with men, forms of “masculine” power and narratives of domination that tend towards binary thinking and oppressive hierarchies. But power has not always operated this way, and women have not always and everywhere been powerless and oppressed.
Ancient history and culture demonstrate very different paradigms, and we can see this resurface across history and cultures through the world. As long as there have been attempts to silence and oppress, there has been collective and personal resistance. Women-led movements have emerged globally, presenting alternative visions for society, ways of being and relating that draw from ancestral histories and life-supporting principles. In this spirit, we seek to explore how reclaiming and re-imagining power can mean radically challenging the construction of power in society as a whole, making way for new ideas and ways of relating to emerge and take root.
I’m thrilled to share that I will be one of the teachers on advaya’s new online course: Women & Power: Reclaiming & Reimagining Power in the World Today. The course consists of nine weeks of live sessions led by prominent historians, activists, matriarchs and indigenous leaders. We will look at how we can decolonise and reclaim narratives, and engage in practices for nurturing renewed consciousness and connection.
The course begins on Wednesday 21 September.
