Central Coast Women’s Symposium

Our Seventh Central Coast Annual Women’s Symposium Was Another HUGE SUCCESS!

Denise Linn & Laura Grace

On March 11, 2017, we honored our sisterhood, celebrated our unified hearts and enjoyed the wisdom of best-selling author and healer Denise Linn.


Founder and Producer of the Central Coast Women’s Symposium discusses the 2017 symposium and why it is important for women to attend, now, more than ever.



Discover what the Dalai Lama meant: “The world will be saved by the western woman.”

Activate your inner courage and break from the status quo
Liberate your potential and bring about positive change
Reaffirm why there is no limit to what women can do

We are living in a profound moment in human history, when more and more women are awakening to their full potential, committed to co-creating a more conscious world, to live and lead with heart, soul and wisdom. Women are midwifing the new paradigm of feminine evolution and bringing health, energy, transformation, nourishment, and sustainability to our communities and entire planet. The Dalai Lama recently spoke in Australia about the need for compassionate leadership to solve the global crises and how women hold the greatest potential as natural leaders today.


To celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, which is always March 8th. And to support women in fostering an evolving feminine consciousness for a more sustainable world that honors wisdom, wholeness and oneness.


Denise Linn has been called “America’s best-kept secret.” For the last three and a half decades she has traveled to the far corners of the world speaking to standing-room only audiences of thousands. Denise has distilled the information and wisdom into her teachings that she gained from indigenous cultures around the planet— the aborigines of Australia, the Zulu in Africa, the Maori of New Zealand (where she was given the title of tohunga), as well as from her own Native American roots.

Denise has taught seminars in 25 countries and has written 17 books, including the best-selling, “Sacred Space,” and “Soul Coaching” as well as her personal memoir, “If I Can Forgive, So Can You!” Her books have been translated into 28 languages, and she has been a featured guest on Oprah, Lifetime, Discovery Channel, BBC TV, NBC and CBS. She is also the founder of the International Institute of Soul Coaching. For more information, CLICK HERE.
