Women's Leadership Institute

A program in applied spirituality



Women's Leadership Institute encourages the full flowering of every woman's potential, creating a community for women of all ages and cultures committed to liberation and an awareness of the empowering, energizing presence of God's spirit in our lives.


WLI meets once a month from September through May. In seminars that take place on Friday evening and on Saturday morning and afternoon, participants hone leadership skills rooted in a feminist perspective that is justice-based, globally oriented, attentive to diversity, and ritually expressed. The outcome is an embodied spirituality grounded in the very real world of our personal and public lives.
