The Power of Yin

As we look forward to hosting an online retreat with long-time friend of SMC Sara Avant Stover next month, we’d like to share a dharma talk she gave during another retreat this past winter. In this talk, Stover, a bestselling author and teacher of feminine spirituality, speaks about The Power of Yin.

“In a world that still condemns the feminine, or yin energy—like softening, resting, being, allowing—we still have a ways to go before really restoring this fundamental energetic balance,” she says, “first within ourselves and then on the planet.”

We hope you enjoy this talk, and you can learn more about the upcoming retreat below.
