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 inter-view which provides applicants with an understanding of the focus and process of the program, and clarifies the applicant’s expectations of the program.
Participation in the program is a significant commitment of time and dedication. Monthly sessions are held one weekend each month ;alternating between Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday to respect diverse worship practices. 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.
2017-2018 dates TBD
Tuition is $1,500. Scholarships are available. Voices of Women is committed to providing this experience to women regardless of their ability to pay. Your ability to pay full or partial tuition will enable scholarships to be available for others. Applications for participation will be considered without regard to scholarship needs.

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 ourselves as women."
“This experience has helped me to find the words I want to say. The books and women put my thoughts and feelings into words. I learned that feminine and masculine are needed in all things.”
"It is obvious to me that
the IVoW Experience expands
a woman's horizons."
