To say that we are living in challenging, disruptive and uncertain times is an understatement.  The current world view that has led us here rests upon the premise of our separation from and mastery over nature and domination over women, the marginalised and the voiceless. The repercussions are being felt by us all.  Feminine Intelligence is a complex subject which is why we must bring diverse perspectives – we must talk about gender and biology, we must address the colonisation of our social systems and our human psyche that has happened over centuries. Over the past 18 months, the pandemic has disproportionally impacted the lives of women around the world, whilst leaders face multiple crises, not only ecological and political but morally and spiritually..

This is a time of crises at the same time an opportunity for transformation. At the same time, women and all who are embodying what can be called feminine qualities in leadership and systems transformation are showing us the way forward.  As we awaken to the flaws and cracks appearing in the old system that has failed us, we have the opportunity to bring the light and forge a new future.  Direct action, new policies, laws and systemic changes, a shift in mindset and elevation in consciousness is required.

It’s time we come together to awaken, activate and embody, feminine intelligence that exist in all genders.  FemmeQ is not a fight for the feminine to be acknowledged which causes polarization and a conflict around gender but an awakening to what we have sacrificed at the altar of domination and patriarchy. What we have sacrificed has numbed us to feeling or acknowledging the power of the feminine and the how critical feminine qualities are in our psyche to restore balance and harmony on our planet, appreciate beauty and respect and preserve what we hold as most sacred.  We are committed to harnessing the collective wisdom; to create a new approach to leadership, tell new stories about our future, to work across all sectors of society to bring about the systemic transformation we need for a regenerative future.

What is Feminine Intelligence?

…feminine intelligence; the deep inner wisdom that enables us to bring life to life

“a deep knowing that we are all part of a living universe, an innate sense of responsibility for the survival of human and planetary life. A conscious intention to heal.  The concentration of love, energy and life-force, dedicated to someone or something that is of the greatest importance beyond self-interest and serves the greater whole”

- Karen Downes

Now is the time for women to occupy their rightful place as decision makers at all levels and in all sectors of society and for all to dignify and embody feminine intelligence, for a regenerative future. As we activate feminine intelligence in men, women and people of all genders viable alternatives are being created for systemic transformation, this is being demonstrated by many.  The time is now, to unleash our collective intelligence, expand our human capacity, unlock ingenuity, increase our solidarity and love toward the healing of ourselves, our families, our societies, and transform the old system.  We will build the new economies and social systems in service to a flourishing future.
