The Female Mystic of Today and Emerging
Female Wisdom Teachers
By Robert Quicksilver



International ladies in Spirituality and Consciousness join leading female pioneers as they gather together on Valentines Day weekend at The Conscious Life Expo.

We are living in an evolving universe, in an orgasmic nuclear dance of consciousness. Everything is changing, progressing and transforming. Wise women throughout history have tried to define the nature of this reality in which they found themselves. A myriad of models have existed, most of which have fallen by the wayside while others are still clinging on by a thread.

A new generation of spiritual communities and world-renowned individuals are co-creating a new model and are pushing through new boundaries we didn't believe possible in the past. Is it all figured out and defined? No. Do we know some of the elements of what this future model might look like? Yes.

Every decade seems to breed a new generation of spiritual teachers as Hollywood breeds actresses and the music industry cultivates female singers. This year, the 7th annual Conscious Life Expo is proud to be providing a vortex of amazing female wisdom teachers, alternative health practitioners, intuitives, psychics, philosophers and paranormal experts.

Join us at the LAX Hilton Hotel on Feb. 13-16 as we blend these newcomers with international pioneers in their fields. Featuring Marianne Williamson (USA) who has published ten books, five of which, including her newest "The Age of Miracles: Embracing the New Midlife," have been New York Times bestsellers.

She also co-founded The Peace Alliance, a grassroots campaign supporting legislation currently before Congress to establish a U.S. Department of Peace.

Sonia Choquette (France) is another unique and extraordinary spiritual teacher. She is an intuitive guide and masterful catalyst whose special gift is to energetically activate the highest vibration and free the authentic Spirit in everyone she meets.

And while we co-create this new holistic model through our authentic self expression, we also participate in a powerful and passionate celebration of life and love.
