March 8th – International Women’s Day 2022

The Politics of Waking Up

Over the past three decades, access to the internet has caused a revolution in our global society. People from all corners of the globe are connecting and mobilising. In so doing, they are waking up to the cultures and structures that have been keeping us all in thrall to a socio-economic and political system that is destroying our planet.

In this moment of multiple crises and devastation, more and more are using the feminine principle that connects us emotionally and practically to each other and to our natural world, thus opening new spaces of possibility for our complex selves to find agency for the first time. As we move from degeneration to regeneration a flourishing future becomes possible.

These and other topics are explored in Indra Adnan’s most recent book ‘The Politics of Waking Up: Power and Possibility in the Fractal Age’. She will be joined by Karen Downes, a founder of FemmeQ, and Erin Toppenberg, partner of FemmeQ, in a dialogue to witness all that is emerging in this critical time.

Indra Adnan is founder and co-initiator of the Alternative UK and a ‘pioneer of the possible’, a committed supporter of the feminine principle of interconnectedness and interdependence being expressed in all sectors of our society as the integrating principle for solving some of our most entrenched social, environmental, and political problems. 

During our time together you will:

  • Recognise how the feminine is the holder of space in which humanity can evolve
  • Become aware of how the feminine is always listening for the becoming of something new
  • Awaken to your own agency and power to bring what is yours at this time
  • Understand how to hold that space for yourself and others
  • Learn how devotion is a feminine quality and how living from this soul quality activates the heart
  • Emerge with a new perspective of what is possible for yourself and in the wider world
