About Numina

~ The Numina Mission is to create safe and sacred womens circle within which women can explore and nurture their deepest selves. ~

The Latin word numina is the plural of the word numen, which means presence of the divine. Numina's programs seek to cultivate the numinous; that is, to create space in which women are continually aware of numina, the manifold expressions of the divine presence that beckon for our attention.

Numina encourages women to claim their unique gifts and move from the inner journey toward the outward journey of service to others. This intentional journey enables the development of deep, lasting and supportive friendships.

About the Numina Logo

 

numina logo The founders developed the Numina logo as a woman journeying to the center of herself which is also the journey to the center of the universe. She is called Double Helix woman after the model upon which the program is based, a model representing the journey inward to center and the journey outward to service. Using the Seven principles for Transformation that arose out of our personal mission statements and that correspond to the seven energy centers in the body or the chakras, the founders developed a curriculum based on experiential, body-oriented activities. Beginning with the root chakra, the Numina principles are: Abundance, Empowerment, Integration, Connectedness, Delight, Service, Renewal .
