The Sacred Feminine Rising
The Sacred Feminine Rising, Inc. (TSFR) is a nonprofit spiritual organization that supports and empowers natal womyn in accessing the Divine Feminine. We interact with our community to co-create and build relationships as well as educate, inform, and promote a connection to the Divine Feminine as She exists. TSFR is for those who are born biological females, are socialized and enculturated as womyn, and live as womyn/girls. We believe that shared experience is a powerful connector; that individuals of every group have a right to seek out and peacefully gather in sovereign space and that support of such spaces allows for the deeper healing that must occur in order to be able to come together to heal our wider communities.
TSFR fully supports the rights of ALL people to live in a way that satisfies their needs. As such, the womyn in our community assert their right to gather in a way that satisfies our deep need for sovereign space.
How the Goddess manifests in every womyn is our connection and portal to understanding the Divine within ourselves. Our focus is on examining how our sacred bodies and life cycles, along with cultural and societal experiences that are unique to womyn who are born, socialized, and live as womyn, affect our spirituality and our relationship with ourselves and our bodies. Our community members come from a variety of faith backgrounds, and are united in their desire to commune with the Goddess and with individuals who have shared experiences and who are actively seeking a deeper spiritual connection with their female bodies and selves. As such, we honor and celebrate each womyn as a representative of the Divine by building a spiritual community with like-minded womyn. This takes the form of a yearly festival that brings our membership together in a space between worlds where physical, emotional, and psychic safety prevail. Between festivals, we maintain our connection via newsletters, smaller gatherings, online meetings, and social media channels.
We pledge to each community member:
Safety: a physically, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, racially and ethnically safe, ability-positive and substance abuse-free space.
Transparency: openness to questions, no secret agendas, integrity in practice, communication and conflict resolution. Access to organizational information. Openness and wise stewardship of financial matters.
Empowerment: Of self and others; including responsibility to self, community, Goddess, and Earth.
Every womyn in our community agrees that:
TSFR is for womyn who are born biological females, are socialized and enculturated as womyn, and live as womyn/girls.
We maintain the right of all groups to peacefully gather in niche communities including in sovereign female space. This right is maintained with respect for all people and without judgment from within or outside of our community. We practice ways that foster personal and collective empowerment.
Holding single-sex spaces (both physical and virtual) for natal womyn and girls in no way diminishes the lived experience of those who fall outside of our parameters for inclusion.
We hold a strong objection to language that disparages, demeans, or denigrates any person.
We hold space for love, peace, respect, privacy, confidentiality, and spiritual individuality, recognizing each of us is a part of our larger community with personal and collective freedom .
We are a space where our girls receive loving, creative, and sensitive supervision and guidance to empower them to become the womyn who will be the future of TSFR.
