Start your morning by celebrating the Divine Feminine, as millions of women do around the globe. In “The Heart of the Goddess: Art, Myth and Meditations of the World’s Sacred Feminine,” scholar-practitioner Hallie Iglehart Austen shares female imagery throughout time, challenging dominant narratives about human nature. In “Feeding A Thousand Souls: Women, Ritual, and Ecology in India,” Professor Vijaya Nagarajan explores the ritual of Tamil women who rise each dawn to create kolams, rice-flour designs that honor Hindu goddesses and incorporate concepts of beauty, mathematics, generosity, and even climate chaos. Moderator Arisika Razak, professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), is a healer, ritualist, spiritual dancer, and educator who practices an eclectic mix of Earth-based spiritual traditions.
