Women & The World

With a rising global conflicts, women have new challenges as they live from day-to-day. Men endeavor as better role models than their predecessors. Young adults must navigate an often confusing landscape of gender roles and relationships.

GODDESS RISING is part of a huge network of organizations which are dedicated to raising the status of women. While there are a variety of perspectives on the gender gap in many societies throughout the world, statistics show that women have a ways to go before they can enjoy relative safety in their neighborhoods, respect in their homes, and equal pay in the workplace.

Our GODDESS RISING organization is managed through the HONORING the FEMININE Foundation, dedicated to helping families everywhere with personal growth programs geared toward emotional intelligence education and sustainable relationships, using social skills studies.

Over the last 20 years, we have been providing dating and relationship advice, launching global campaigns to educate families and individuals about the benefits of honoring the feminine. By treating women and girls with more respect, everyone benefits. Many imagine going from one extreme to another, but we suggest finding a balance between the needs of men and those women and children.

Consciously co-creating more sustainable societies results in more peaceful & prosperous communities for everyone’s benefit. A society which educates its people and care for its health enjoys a more vibrant quality of life. Each member of a village or town can contribute something to improve the well-being of every population. Inspiring others, improving governmental agencies, and building consensus results in more a innovative and peaceful  world.

How would you like to help make this world safer for women to live the lives they choose?

Honoring the Feminine: Think Globally & Act Locally

There are volumes of books written to describe the historical & contemporary effects of sexism, with growing interest in internalized sexism.  Everyday there are countless causes to consider, if you have a moment to do so.  This blog is meant to cover both sociological insights as well as relationship skills which focus on the male-female dynamics attributed to romantic love.  Underlying most divorce cases, one could argue, is a fundamental flaw in each spouse’s expectations of their significant other.  One piece of this is aptly described by Dr. Oz, the regular guest on Oprah’s show, when he says men marry a woman and 20 years later wonders where she went, while women marry a man & 20 years hence wonders why he’s still the same man!

Women have a voracious appetite for love & affection which wants to be given in a loving context of virtue, honor, & joy, with regular doses of tenderness.  Men need their frequent sojourns to their favorite cave to still their minds.  Conscious relationships involve self-aware men & women who can articulate & negotiate what they each want & need.  In contemporary, freedom-oriented societies, there is a tendency to give women more say in the terms of engagement under which she will interact with any given man.  This new trend promises lots of surprises, as well as trial & error!  What men are discovering is a type of dharma yoga experience as they begin to honor women more, exploring chivalry, & eventually surrendering to their goddess’ wishes.  But for a man to flow with a woman, he must be very centered & clear on his mission, or else, the feminine chaos will overwhelm him, rather than amuse him.

These ideas are described in detail by author, David Deida.  The sociological changes of the last 50 years might be summed up by saying, From time immemorial, it was Neaderthal meets Barbie.  Then, with the sexual revolution of the 1960s, please note Uranus conjunct Pluto during that decade, women realized they needed to learn economic intelligence for their personal growth while men saw the importance of emotional intelligence.  Interestingly, that led to an impetus to go full circle, while spiraling upward.  Men now want to reclaim their masculine essence but evolve beyond the Neaderthal or Barbaric tendencies & women long to relax into their radiant feminine energy to give & receive love in more meaningful ways.

We are here at a turning point where female-led relationships are providing men & women with more opportunities for emotional intimacy & enduring happiness.  When men are powerful in their domain, they seem to long to surrender to the sacred feminine.  I imagine it’s because they feel balance by feminine energies after they’ve slayed a few dragons in their domain.  The world becomes a better place when priorities are made for more humane ways of living.  For some the path of the feminine is dubious at best.  But ask yourself, Would our planet, our children, & our elders be suffering the way they are if women’s concerns were addressed by local authorities?  Let’s empower women to expand their vision of life while we invite men to bring their deepest presence to each moment with their goddess.

Love your woman, save the planet!

My conceptual model is getting clearer. I’m doing major research on how honoring the feminine helps the planet. Our society, no, world, is evolving 2B allies for women. We’re all Gaia!

I’ve been fantasizing about the next edition of husband & boyfriend training manuals to be the Lysistrata of modern day, except that NOW sexual favors will only be given in accordance with the Domina’s preferences. A modern day Goddess has learned to demonstrate leadership through how she inspires her man to take up the mission of healing the Planet. Crack that whip, Baby! This is what is needed today…and I dare say, tomorrow too. W/we make choices everyday. Every moment.
