For centuries, Patriarchy has defined and reinforced women's experience of separation: separation from one other, from men, from the larger socio-political world, and most importantly from their own deeper selves. From the 19th century onward, this dominant Patriarchal paradigm has continued to break down, and so have the ascribed gender roles that previously held it together, opening women to unprecedented possibilities for personal, collective and spiritual growth. Yet, it seems that we women are still struggling to shake off centuries of patriarchal conditioning that has taught us not to step out or speak up in a way that really matters.
Join us for an intimate dialogue with writer, teacher and mystic, Lucia René, as she shares wisdom and insights from her new book, Unplugging the Patriarchy. According to Lucia, the only way we as a species are going to generate the solutions necessary to deal with the political, economic and environmental crisis now facing us, is if women today take on the deep and sacred task of unplugging from the Patriarchy, both within and without. Lucia René is a writer, teacher and ordained Buddhist monk, who for forty years has drawn on the practices of Hinduism, Zen, Advaita and Vadriyana Buddhism. Her spiritual work culminated in a seventeen year apprenticeship to an enlightened master who taught American Buddhism, psychic development, and tantric mysticism.
