The Yogini Project Film: “Women On The Path”
First still releases from our filming in Nepal and India, this February to April, 2015 from The Yogini Blog:
The Yogini Project’s film project “Women On The Path” has been envisioned for years now.
We first laid the base for a global movement in support of women in Buddhist practice with the inspiration and direct vision of what supporting women in this way would bring to the world. Our feature interview series at The Yogini Channel with the leading female teachers of the day was launched in 2012 – including two extensive interviews with H.E. Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche – extended this base by providing guidance and insight to practitioners around the globe through potent video interviews, indeed on many relevant topics of the day not presented in the classic texts. But this was just a beginning.
We intend not only to extend this series of interviews with other significant female teachers as an integral aspect of revealing the blossoming of the feminine in practice today in a more in-depth film, but much more!
Critical to the vision that inspired the creation of The Yogini Project is that not only are vital role models of truly empowered and authentically awake teachers in FEMALE FORM essentially important, but also revealing the many faces and stories of the VAST RANGE OF WOMEN in practice in a myriad variety of forms and contexts in locations truly global.
The essence is to create and enhance the VALUE that is given to each and every context and stage that practice is discovered in. Including one’s very own, moment by moment, as it manifests.
We are deeply inspired to inspire, and to do so with dynamic, elegant, potent media that not only shows the awakened feminine – and appreciation and support for it – tangibly present today, but dynamically reveals through stories of other women likewise on the path in similar contexts that it, realization, can indeed be immediately aspired to and the path towards it applied in the very direct, contemporary context that one finds one’s self, whatever one’s form or stage or story.
Thus the Yogini Project film “Women On The Path” comes forward to document both the wisdom of accomplished women and the aspiration and application of the path by an inspiring spectrum of women around the world today.
The filming continues…
