Join Our Gifted Women's Community of Practice
Our community of practice is the gathering place for gifted/2e women to investigate and undo the effects of normative + patriarchal systems on the gifted feminine via meditation, shared reflection, and other contemplative practices.
Gifted and twice-exceptional women experience ― and have experienced throughout their lives ― a multifaceted marginality due to patriarchal and normative systems. The result of this marginality is an embodied way of being that suppresses and distorts both their giftedness and feminine wisdom. Part of our mission in the Community of Practice is to dismantle these systems of oppression in mindful, compassionate ways.
Some of the themes and questions we contemplate are:
What does it feel like to unmask and fully embody and express the gifted feminine?
How are/have patriarchy + neuronormativity affected the expression of our gifted intelligences and overexcitabilities?
How can we (re)connect with our sensitive bodies and feelings in mindful compassionate ways?
In what ways can we support and heal the emotional wounds related to our experience as gifted women? i.e., shame, grief, rage
How can we resource ourselves and draw on our creativity, integrity, openness, complexity and capacity for insight and healing ― not only for ourselves, but also for each other, our families, and our communities?
We gather online weekly to contemplate these themes via guided and unguided meditation, shared reflection, and deep listening. We also connect in a private Facebook group to share resources, dialogue, engage in creative practices, and support one another on our journeys. The refuge of the community fills a deep need for us to engage in meaningful ways, receive mirroring, and be enriched as we cultivate our practice and freedom of authentic being. Together.
The soul of giftedness, I believe, is found in the spirit of every courageous gifted woman who aspires to own and embody her sovereignty.

Our community is intentionally small consisting of approximately 8 women.
*Weekly gatherings are currently held on Sundays and Thursdays from 10 - 11:30am Eastern Time.
Here's what's included in community membership:
In order to maintain a safe, supportive container in the community, new members are asked to commit to 3 months to start.* Following this initial period, members may continue on a month-to-month basis.
We offer 3 pricing options to accommodate differing financial means:
Supported access: 40 USD / month
For those with current financial limitations who would benefit from support from the collective.
Sustainable access: 50 USD / month
For those with sufficient financial means who can pay fair value for the sustainability of the community.
Rebalance access: 60 USD / month
For those with more than enough financial resources and a desire to support access for other gifted women.
Monthly payments are made via PayPal. We trust you to assess accurately where you are within this fee structure. For reference, this graphic by Alexis Cunningfolk offers more specific guidance.
*A note about readiness to join the Community of Practice: While this space is safe, compassionate and supportive, it does not serve as a professional support group. If you are feeling resistant to or angry about giftedness, or if you are struggling with overwhelming emotions that would prevent you from fully participating (i.e., with video on, openly listening + sharing), it is recommended you seek gifted-specific support via coaching or therapy before joining.
Social justice oriented pricing model inspired by and adapted from Rev. angel Kyodo williams.
Feeling at ease, in a community in which we experience the comfort of feeling safe and seen, we begin to reconnect with our gifted selves - and by extension, the world around us - in more authentic ways.
