Our world needs healing.

The dismantling of empire, conquest, and racial and religious supremacies.

The flourishing of all genders into feminist freedom.

The un-doing of heteropatriarchy, cisgender supremacy, and transphobia.

A deep reckoning with Indigenous rights, decolonization, and the earth.

Spirituality grounded in joy, abundance, and justice.

The unleashing of ancient economies of interconnection and interdependence.

Feminist foremothers left for us an inheritance for catalyzing change.

They were committed to these interconnected struggles and to birthing transformations.

They knew the personal was always political—and that change happens at every scale, interlinked.

Imagine when more leaders are trained in this feminist inheritance of knowledge? 

Imagine our future if we begin to learn their sustaining legacy of coalitions and interlinked liberation?

The Methods of Change:

Grief + New Language + Creativity = Transformation

20 years of diligent research have gone into Feminism School—because to do this transformative work requires great attention to how to learn and unlearn across many fields of knowledge.

Our pedagogy integrates academic rigor with decolonial trauma-informed methods, spiritual and contemplative practices, intergenerational healing work, a focus on imagination, and mind-body-spirit reconnection.

Students experience nuanced curriculum to name and grieve systems of power, violence, and trauma, while gaining analysis and practices to unfurl their creative power to re-make the world.

The Practices:

Contemplative Feminist Writing

Using contemplative writing and art practices alongside textual feminist study, we teach you to connect to knowledge held within the body, often without language.

These methods of feminist learning expand conversations on identity and help us practice building coalitions at the intersections. Today's social justice language, which helps us navigate justice and injustice, can at times also lock us into simplistic and binary understandings of ourselves and the world, isolating us and fragmenting our social movements.

We guide approaches to understanding identity and history from the much more expansive, layered methods of feminist foremothers—and from across vibrant and diverse traditions. The result is a more rigorous analysis of systems of oppression, as well as more tools for personal and collective change.

Our Invitation...

We are living in a moment of accelerated possibility.

Hierarchical systems—of patriarchy, white supremacy, antisemitism, and empire—are being challenged by models of justice, mutual aid, interconnection, and renewed care for one another and the earth.

Feminist foremothers left us a wellspring of knowledge and practices that are crucial for building this flourishing world we know is possible. Yet, their knowledge is still being suppressed because patriarchy and white supremacy work through silencing radical knowledge.

Most of the leaders we train have several degrees, and yet have not before had the opportunity to study powerful voices of feminist history—including the texts of Black feminisms, queer of color critique, Indigenous feminisms, religious and spiritual feminisms, or the coalitions built amongst anti-racist white feminists (many of whom are Jewish) and feminists of color.

Our mission is to train leaders in a contemplative feminist education that reconnects the mind, body, and spirit. We teach beyond binaries and offer interdisciplinary rigor often confined to top-tier graduate programs, while valuing mysticism, wonder, and awe for the not-yet-known. And we help you connect your learning to the power of your creativity and community to reimagine the world—whether you are a leader in politics, art, film, #metoo, mental health, faith communities, or K-12 education.
