Decolonizing the Sacred Feminine

Broadcast on August 16, 2022
With Andrea Menard
Hosted by Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD

As taught by the accomplished Métis singer, writer, performer, and founder of the Sacred Feminine Learning Lodge, Andrea Menard, a profound step on the mystic's path is decolonizing the Sacred Feminine. Learning to unravel the training that upholds oppressive practices and to embody the gifts hidden within the realm of the Sacred Feminine, you are reminded of your inherently gentle nature and emboldened to walk with a gentler step on this planet. Andrea also shares a song from her latest album.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Your Sacred Feminine gifts through land-based practices that connect you to powerful Mother Earth
  • Value in Indigenous and Sacred Feminine knowledge
  • Your own part in the rise of the Sacred Feminine
