Vedanta and the Divine Feminine

Research Paper to Be Presented
Sunday, October 20 at 2 pm Festival Hall 
Dr. Candace Badgett, International Trustee of the Women's Wing of the TM organization, was recently invited to present her paper, Vedanta and the Divine Feminine, at the World Association of Vedic Sciences (WAVES) conference at the University of Massachusetts.  This presentation locates the seat of the Divine Feminine and traces its essential role in the process of apprehending the true nature of life, and the possibilities for every woman.

The enthusiastic response to the talk has inspired a 2014 conference collaboration between WAVES and Global Mother Divine Organization and MUM.    

Dr. Badgett will be presenting this paper to University students, faculty, staff and community members onSunday,  October 20, at 2:00 pm, in Festival Hall in the Argiro Student Center. This event is sponsored by the MUM Women's Institute and the Maharishi Vedic Science Dept.
