Voices Of Women
Women Sharing Their Gifts and Stories to the World
Returning from a world travel odyssey from 1983 – 1986, she began her spiritual journey and discovered her mission to bring people together. After reading the Feminine Face of God, by Patricia Hopkins and Sherry Anderson, a vision was revealed to her to create a conference and bring women spiritual leaders to Seattle, which quickly evolved into creating a community of women. The Women of Wisdom Conference was birthed in 1993, and developed into an annual event in Seattle, that drew thousands for a week long gathering.
In 1998 she founded the non-profit organization, Women of Wisdom Foundation, and has followed her passion to empower women to find their voices and share their stories and gifts with each other and the world. Connected with women leaders such as Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Shinoda Bolen, and Marion Woodman, Kris brings important messages to women around the world.
Her Circle Leadership model, developed as Executive Director of Women of Wisdom, draws on each group member’s individual leadership strengths and knowledge to foster community-based decision making. It gives her great pleasure to share with you the inherent gift of women’s wisdom that will restore health, peace, and light to our world.
Kris is the author of the #1 Amazon best-selling, award winning book Women of Wisdom, Empowering the Dreams and Spirit of Women. In the book she inspires others to discover their divine feminine essence, their spiritual journey, and purpose through sharing women’s stories, art and poetry from the WOW community.
Kris brings a powerful hour of women sharing their gifts and stories to the world. For the listener, new windows of possibilities are opened for them to grow and heal. Kris’s mission is to bring the experience of the Divine Feminine to the world and encourage women to find their voices and share their stories. Kris believes it is time for women to be leaders and honor and respect the feminine within all of us.
Jean Houston gave a tribute honoring Kris’s work at Women of Wisdom, stating “Kris has impacted thousands of women”, and through the ripple effect, as every women influences each other through their healing journeys, many more woman are making a difference in the world. She was honored at the Women’s Summit Empowerment in 2009, and received a leadership award from The Women’s Information Network at the Global Women’s Summit.
In addition to creating sacred space for women to circle, Kris’s passions include travel, art and culture, gardening, and reading. Currently she’s involved with Seattle’s Amazing Grace Spiritual Center’s Global Service Team and travels to Cambodia and Kenya to volunteer in building schools in villages there.
