Ep46: Patricia Fero on Patriarchy and the Liminal Space

Patricia Fero was born for these times. She is a passionate woman who has dedicated her life to igniting the collective feminine in planetary awakening. Her capacity for clearing her own internalized patriarchy and fierce listening are the magic she brings to every setting.

The author of four books, Patricia has shared her wisdom through writing. Her first, Mining for Diamonds shows how people can use adversity to create resiliency. What happens When Women Wake Up? is a roadmap for clearing internalized patriarchy.

Her third book, Sacred Marching Orders, describes the new energy of the solar feminine. Marianne Williamson’s endorsement reads: “Women owning our power and using it collaboratively is what our planet desperately needs. Sacred Marching Orders is a call to women to channel our passion into the healing of the world.”

Ep54: Death Throes of Patriarchy w/guest Clay Boykin

Ep54: Death Throes of Patriarchy w/guest Clay Boykin

This may be one of the most important conversations we can have when discussing patriarchy. Does “patriarchy” imply men? Are men wounded by the patriarchy soaked into our cultures? Are women contributing to the patriarchal society? This loaded conversation will be held in a safe and sacred manner, between friends, while inviting all voices to be heard. We will be conducting breakout sessions as well to further your experience.

He is the Founder of the Men’s Fellowship Network: Circles of Men Project, author of the book, Circles of Men: A Counter-Intuitive Approach to Creating Men’s Groups, and creator of the podcast, In Search of the New Compassionate Male. Clay is developing the Men & Boys Initiative for Charter for Compassion and works closely with Gender Equity and Reconciliation International  an organization whose focus is on deep healing between women and men. Clay is well known for his servant leadership approach to life. He leads workshops and retreats in the U.S. and Africa, and is presently working on his next book: In Search of the New Compassionate Male.

Sande Hart – Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister and Aunt, and grandmother. – I serve as Founding Director of the Charter for Compassion Women and Girls sector, Founder and President of the women’s interfaith organization S.A.R.A.H., Past Chair of the United Religions Initiative for North America, and co-Founder of Alchemy Productions. – A certified Compassionate Integrity Trainer, I am passionate about leading people to a new understanding of who they are through the lens of compassion and compassionate action, and the role they contribute to the world around them. With a strong emphasis on personal awareness and self advocacy, I developed the 18th Sustainable Development goal with the intention and expectation that  we will wake up to our personal responsibilities to be stewards of our planet and those we share it with. – With a strong commitment to elevating women and girls by providing dialogue and circle experience, my workshops and productions provide opportunities for weaving relationships, and being in service to the divine feminine that is rising strong in our world right now. – I speak and conduct workshops on a variety of topics relating to community building, women and girls, and kids activism through service. – Paying attention to patterns in community and community building, it became clear that, with some thoughtful adjustments that seem to be easily missed, and some safeguards in how leadership teams work together, we could accelerate and leverage the highest vision and success of any given group.

Ep93: The Lunar Leads and the Solar Executes

Ep93: The Lunar Leads and the Solar Executes

Telling a man that he “needs to go into his feminine side” is just about as effective as telling a woman that she “needs to go into her masculine side.” Talking about “integrating head and heart” gets closer to the essence of the general intent, but still falls short for many to grasp the nuance of the meaning.

In this fascinating conversation with Dr, Howard Teich, author of, Solar Light – Lunar Light; Patricia Fero, Clinical Social Worker, LMSW, ACSW; and Ann Smith, Co-Founder and Co Director of Circle Connections, we explore the concepts surrounding the Solar/Lunar Woman, and the Solar/Lunar Man.

In our search for the New Compassionate Male, Dennis Tardan, my producer, and I talk with many fascinating people. Bringing them together for small group conversations adds depth, breadth and richness to our search.
