The Importance of Mentoring (link to article)
We don’t cultivate and value Mentors in our western society. Few of us were lucky enough to have parents who were mentors and could teach us about the important ways to navigate through life. Most of us learned these crucial lessons on our own, feeling like we are were up a stream without a paddle. Erica's inspirational stories will demonstrate the importance each of our lives play in mentoring the lives of the younger ones who are coming up.

The Emergence of the Sacred Feminine
In ancient cultures the Goddess was worshiped as the ultimate expression of life and birth. These concepts were valued and the culture thrived as this Partnership model of shared power encouraged working together for the common good. These vibrant cultures were overtaken by the Patriarchal model of physical strenght and power-over with war and might as the values to be worshiped. As the Patriarchal model is breaking down, the Partnership model is coming back in all areas of society. In this seminar Erica discusses the strengths and attributes of the Partnership model and how women can and are the force behind an exciting new Paradigm shift in western society.
