Welcome to WS Sanctuary

The aim of "WS Sanctuary" is to foster and maintain a supportive, safe gathering place in which to share our stories/personal mythos, as well as to share information and images pertaining to "women's studies", "women's spirituality", "feminist philosophy", "feminist theory", "women's mysteries", "gender studies", "the sacred feminine", and the mythos of being a woman in society-- the present, but also remembering lessons from the past and envisioning the future.

Keeping the aim of "WS Sanctuary" clear, this community is open to everyone needing a respite from the daily stresses. We welcome everyone interested in; currently studying; or alumnae of any of the above mentioned fields. Our community welcomes all; while this community is open to people of all genders, a gentle reminder that the aim of this group is to create a safe, supportive and unconditionally understanding environment for women, first and foremost. With this atmosphere, all members then feel free to express our own unique creativity, beliefs, opinions, and intellectual thoughts in regards to topics/issues ranging from women's faith to women's studies.
