As an esoteric wisdom teacher, I share the ancient teachings from the mystery temples of Egypt and Greece. This path has led me to work directly with students who wish to study the deeper teachings as well as to share the information outwardly in books, meditations, the Explore Your Spirit show and in workshops.  My vision behind all that I do is that… ‘Spirit does not exist in just one location; rather it is all encompassing, living within and amongst us in each moment, thought and action. I believe that Spirit is raised to its highest level, when individuals gather with wisdom, compassion and a discerning desire to provide service to humanity”.

Along this journey, I’ve had the opportunity to meet an incredible array of beautiful souls, each of whom have something valuable and important to teach. Some with spirits so glorious that to simply be in their presence can provide a sense of healing and rejuvenation. Over the years, I’ve felt the energy grow and expand and during the darkest of times, I continued to share with others that I see an empowering and life-enhancing time ahead, where we evolve as a species and remember who we are and truly why we are here.

In 2002, I was in a period of deep meditation and I saw what was to come at the end of the next decade, especially to do with the advances we would make between 2016 and 2022. It led me to make this statement – ‘In this new decade, we are moving into a new age of Enlightenment. The Aquarian information from the gods can no longer be contained, the Divine Feminine is being released in all her glory and we will once again see a Renaissance period, where great art, architecture, philosophy, literature and science will develop and flourish. During this decade the greatest minds will stir, to share, to illuminate and to build and create works and ideas that will be marveled around the world.”

I then knew that the return of the Divine Feminine was here and that there were many other soul sisters like myself who were here and working to bring this time and energy forth. These women, once priestesses from the ancient temples and wise women from many lifetimes, had returned again in answer to the ancient call.

Recently I was introduced to an institute which manifested using the spirit and principles of wisdom and the Divine Feminine as their guide. The Sophia Institute, named after Sophia, the goddess of wisdom is an organization dedicated to personal and interpersonal transformation.  Their vision is to …’ look towards a world that could be called a wisdom society, a 21st century that could be called The Sophia Century: a conscious enlightened world, a compassionate global community, where wholeness, healing, sustainability, the conscious heart, deep wisdom, and the sacred feminine are at the center of life’.

I spoke with the founder of the Sophia Institute, Carolyn Rivers, to ask what inspired her to create the Institute. Carolyn replied, ‘It was a natural, organic inspiration… a moment of great clarity when what I was called to on the heart level met my destiny. I felt engaged and knew it was my assignment to create the Institute aligned to divine wisdom.  Especially now with the challenges we are facing in this world, we must all do what we are deeply called to do, so that together we co-create a whole new way to live in the world’.

At a time where many are wondering what they can do to make a difference in the world, women like Carolyn Rivers are taking action to as Gandhi said, ‘be the change you want to see in the world’.  Over the past ten years, Carolyn has formed an inspiring board of directors to assist in the development of the Sophia Institute and created a highly conscious institute offering over 50 programs a year, attracting a wide variety of spiritual seekers, teachers and visionaries from around the world. In addition, she has established the Women of Wisdom Conference (WOW), which gathers transformational and empowering women to share with each other in a weekend of celebration and exploration.

When introduced to such a space of beauty being created by so many loving and wise women, it took me right back to that day in 2002, when I saw what was to come in the next decade. There is great hope and great joy ahead. Sophia in her wise divine feminine ways, is speaking to each of us at this time and she has manifested a home in Charleston, South Carolina for all those who seek her wisdom. Do you hear her call?

The Sophia Institute presents the Women of Wisdom Conference –  Transforming Our Lives, Transforming Our World, which runs from Friday, October 1st through Sunday, October 3rd with most of the events held at the Ashley Hall School, Davies Auditorium, 172 Rutledge Avenue, Charleston, SC.  Event highlights include an art exhibit with over 50 artists and dynamic speakers including: Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Claire Zammit, Sera Beak, Katherine Woodward Thomas and Carolyn Rivers.
