An Awesome Weekend with the Awesome Women Hub Northampton

What would our lives be like if women, or at least the feminine perspective, ran the world? What would the world look like if we collaborated with one another from our essence? How would things shift if we could break down the barriers between generations?

Robin Rice, Shaman and Founder of
the Awesome Women Hub
These are the questions that 30 women (plus even more online) grappled with at a "re-think" tank last weekend sponsored by the Awesome Women Hub in Northampton, MA. We saw a world that was open and loving; a world full of innovation; a world that honored and celebrated our differences. We saw a world that encouraged children to make mistakes in an attempt to find out who they really are and what really turns them on. We saw a job market where people would submit their "essence" resumes that outlined who they are rather than a conventional resume that outlined what they've done. Founder Robin Rice, contemporary shaman extraordinaire, and all the local leaders in Massachusetts created a sacred space for us to bring our true essence to the the table. We created art together and watched as our creation grew and grew with each iteration. We also created a video to honor the powerful young women of the next generation. The score for the video was an original song written and performed by Megon McDonough called "Amazing Things."
