    The Content of Her Character

    This event is an investigation into a way of being that is expressed from a deep and
    collaborative inquiry into the modern feminine. The exploration includes an engagement
    with the meaning of the femininity in terms of how it shapes who we are, who we are
    being, and particularly how to be in service to humanity. It is a journey that straddles
    spirituality, feminism, transpersonal psychology and activism and challenges our personal
    views on how we advocate for justice. This is a discussion on what it mean to reclaim a role for femininity in the modern age. 


    But given a view of femininity—and by extension, womanhood—that is associated with gender roles.  What if femininity was understood as something more enduring and timeless—the simple quality of being a woman? Femininity means more than a role or an aesthetic; it’s not simply dressing the part, so to speak. It’s an essence, something inherent. Even now, we’re crafting new meanings of femininity and re configuring the roles that women can play in the modern world. And yet, as women, we seek to understand what that unique distinction means for us and how to embrace what we are.

    lyricalnourishment

    Lyrical Nourishment is a platform for poets, songs writers and artists that desire to express themselves in a meaningful way. Authentic expression has been nonexistent in our modern world; a world where humanity is at the apex of individualism. There is a great global shift taking place and the human family is beginning to realize the importance and the significance of spirituality in the arts. Poetry, one of the oldest art mediums- is a very effective way to reflect, express, and communicate globally.
