Our Inner Lives seeks to be a space for the unified expression of women’s inner and outer lives. We honor women’s inner lives of faith, religious practice, spiritual transformation and commitment to causes greater than ourselves. We believe that caring for our inner lives makes us more effective in the world, and, simultaneously, being passionately engaged in the world nourishes us inside. Read our full mission >
