Divine Feminine

Dr Elizabeth Ursic has been visiting Auroville during the month of January as a visiting scholar in residence and hosted an interactive session on Friday 13th January at the Sri Aurobindo Centre for Studies, Bharat Nivas on the Divine Feminine. During this session, Elizabeth shared her latest research describing 3 Christian communities in the USA that have adopted a contemporary approach to prayer and worship by bringing the feminine to the forefront, sometimes generating controversy among the more conservative members of their faith.

Elizabeth then guided a meditation inviting the group to recall personal encounters with feminine Divinity and a rich and touching sharing of experiences followed. Common elements of experience were highlighted including the embodied nature of such experiences which we identify as arising from the feminine aspect of the Divine. Dr. Elizabeth Ursic is a professor in world religions at Mesa College Arizona and an adjunct faculty member in the Womens Spirituality program at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She is a cellist and pianist and has recorded a CD, Unspoken Touch.
