Who we are

The Women’s Visionary Council is a community of adventurers from all generations and traditions. We are united in a time-honored quest to explore a more vivid and profound awareness of our inner and outer worlds. Our annual Women’s Visionary Congress and WVC Salons are open to people of all genders. We promote the right to self-knowledge, cognitive liberty and new modes of healing that involve nonordinary forms of consciousness. The WVC community shares insights on how we can explore these experiences to understand ourselves more fully, access our creativity, and prepare for moments of spiritual transition. We acknowledge that heightened states of awareness can be entered through meditation, dreams, prayer, physical disciplines, near death events, spiritual practices, dance, music, psychoactive substances, and encounters with the natural world. We support both qualitative and quantitative research methods that examine altered states. WVC gatherings present scholars, healers, activists and artists who address the leading edge of these investigations.
