Women Awakening

Program Overview

Women Awakening showcases women with fascinating lives who have worked their way through many stages of spiritual awakening. Each guest will share the intermittent "waking" and "sleeping" process that she experienced as her own spiritual awakening evolved. Through sharing their journeys, guests will serve as role models for other women who are finding their way and are awakening. They also talk about their books and passions and answer listener questions.

The ideas and opinions expressed on this program do not necessarily reflect the teachings of Unity. Unity respects a wide range of spiritual thoughts and beliefs, as reflected in the diverse range of subjects presented on Unity Online Radio.
