About Us

Our mission is to develop wise leaders who create wise results.

We work towards an integrated wisdom that starts in a healthy and balanced relationship of the feminine and masculine, believing that this is a wisdom up to the task of more effectively organizing human society so that it is sustainable, vitally healthy, and truly prosperous.

A generative community of women and men that celebrate and act from their wisdom already exists and is growing by leaps and bounds. We highlight many of the crucial distinctions and empowering insights through our programs and services.

Our focus is on developing the feminine wisdom and feminine power of women leaders. It's time! We have a role to play and for our leadership to make the essential difference, we need to lead with our feminine wisdom at the core. But what is it? (visit Karen's blog for more insight, skills development, and stories from many wise women on this topic)

The Wisdom Connection Vision of Feminine Wisdom

Feminine wisdom is the essential core of a woman, the source of her personal power, compassion, relational capacity, and far-reaching vision. After decades of research, and working with hundreds of women, we've found that when a woman reclaims, refines and reveals her feminine wisdom she experiences unprecedented confidence and extraordinary joy that expands her leadership influence and impact in family, community, business and the planet.

Are you Trying too Hard?

Without a flourishing Feminine Wisdom, you might spend your life slightly off kilter, off balance, trying so hard to be “right”, to be sufficient, to make real all your heart’s desires. Repeating the past, you might feel trapped in what you’ve known, depleted from over-giving, and stuck crafting a life without a central source of personal power.

Create a New Future with your Wisdom

A new future cannot be created from what we’ve known in the past. By developing the asset of your integrated wisdom, you'll become an open and curious person capable of creating a new future because you stand in an unshakeable essence inside yourself. No longer stuck on the endless loop, repeating unsatisfying past behaviors and choices, your wisdom can show you how to get off the “merry-go-round” and emerge into a life filled with all that matters most.

A Woman and Her Feminine Wisdom

The best part is that when you draw your feminine wisdom back into the center of your being, and link it to your leadership, you naturally increase your contribution - both fertility and power - of your service to your family, community, organization, and the world!

A Man and His Feminine Wisdom

Both men and women possess the wisdom we need for our world today - the kind of world we want to pass onto our children. Research shows that wisdom is primarily thought of within a masculine framework. Just look at the results when you do a search for wisdom on google or wikipedia. Until we develop an understanding of the feminine dimensions of wisdom, we are only half way along the journey to developing our wisdom. This applies to both men and women!

In The Wisdom Connection we've distinguished Nine Facets of Feminine Wisdom as well as many other distinctions that deepen our understanding and ability to embody feminine wisdom and develop it into an integrated wisdom designed to contribute to a positive future.

You are the Wisewoman and the Wiseman we’ve been waiting for! Blessings on your journey.
