‘Awakening to the Divine Feminine’ with well-known scholar and author Anne Baring, and led by Sally and Jean-Paul Jeanrenaud, was a great success. It was attended by 23 participants, residential and non-residential, and attracted people from Sweden, Switzerland and UK. There were talks, guided meditations, a yoga nidra session, as well as a concert of harp, flute and poetry given by Paula Tait.
Anne led 4 discussions based on work she had presented at The New Chartres Academy earlier in the year: 1) The Great Mother and the Lunar Era: Original Participation 2) The Great Father and the Solar Era: Separation and Dissociation 3) Awakening to the Divine Feminine and the Soul 4) The Indwelling Spirit and the Great Work of Alchemy: Final Participation.
