Week Five :: July 25–August 1

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: The Feminine Spirit

Confucian Correlative Cosmology, specifically Taoism, presented the image of the Yin/Yang Holism (the Tai Chi) to describe how seemingly opposite forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. In this image, the feminine charisms are juxtaposed with the masculine charisms (neither are strictly gender-specific), and in this emerging era it has been observed that the feminine is finally rising, ultimately to restore balance and to revitalize the world. In this week, we shine a light on the feminine charisms and spirit and some leading women who embody this spirit.
