The purpose of Indiana Voices of Women is to gather women to explore the voices of the past, claim their own voice and lead with wisdom. Voices of Women offers a curriculum-based experience that begins in September and concludes in May. The program is structured in nine ten-hour learning modules which include a variety of modalities of learning: instruction, art, music, circle learning, stories, movement, symbols and reflection. Guest Faculty complement the modalities with their unique expertise and wisdom.
The APPLICATION PROCESS includes submitting a completed application form and an interview which provides candidates with an understanding of the focus and process of the program, and clarifies the candidate’s expectations of the program.
Participation in the program represents a significant commitment of time and dedication. Monthly sessions are held on alternating Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday weekends. Each weekend begins with an evening session from 6—9 p.m. followed by an all-day session the next day from 9 a.m.—4 p.m.
Tuition is $1,500. Partial scholarships are available. Voices of Women is committed to providing this experience to women regardless of their ability to pay. Scholarship funds are limited and requests will be considered on the basis of expressed need. Your ability to pay full tuition will enable scholarships to be available for others. Applications for participation will be considered without regard to scholarship needs.

2010-11 IVoW Experience participants
"I wanted to take advantage of an oppportunity to grow in spiritual life and connections with other women. I've grown in many directions - more than I ever imagined was possible."
"I appreciate that multiple intelligences were engaged. The 'at random' element was marvelous. It was important for me to have movement and art. I loved the sense of adventure."
"I enjoyed the learning process.
I can't think of a time that something didn't engage me - there was always something that caught me and pulled me in. I am a cautious person - in the beginning I didn't totally understand everything we were going to explore. I delayed entering a Master's Studies program to do Voices of Women - I wanted to do this first."
"I am glad there is financial aid for those who need support. The time commitment I think was necessary. We need to learn how to allocate time and treasure for ourelves as women."
Weekend sessions for the 2013-2014 IVoW Experience will be held at the Yountsville Mill & Inn Vacation Cottage located at 3941 West Old Mill Road, Crawfordsville, Indiana
