Ilaria Bohm shares her unique perspective about the sacred feminine having walked in both worlds during her life – she was raised as a young girl in an ancient world of matriarchy, honoring the creative power of the feminine and came of age in the world of the patriarchy.
Ilaria is a writer, artist, healer and animal whisperer who spent the first 7 years of her life in a matriarchal, aboriginal community, the Native people of that part of the world call the Birds Isle of Oceania. She later returned for 9 years as a young woman, just out of University. In the interim she lived in the Western world in Europe and Australia.
Currently a PhD. student in Anthropology, Ilaria is living and researching in a remote area below the Himalayas in the land of the Daughters. Living with the Moso people who follow the laws of the Dabus, the grandmothers, which lead their society and carry on ancient traditions through their mother centered families.
Mass tourism and globalization are threatening the survival of their traditions and way of life, which could fade away within their generation or that of their daughters’.
While our lives in the modern world might be far removed from these practices and societies I believe there is great value in sustaining these ancient sacred feminine roots on the planet. These two societies are holding a piece of wisdom for our human family. Their prayers, practices and ceremonies undoubtedly support our awakening in the modern world.
Ilaria and her spiritual sister, a Moso native are currently working to preserve these traditions and the Moso way of life by raising funds to create a guest house to support ongoing research of matriarchal societies. In addition, the guest house would be a space for women from all walks of life, to find a refuge from patriarchy, to re-discover themselves in sisterhood, motherhood, daughterhood and womanhood in general.
Ilaria has committed to sharing the wisdom of these cultures and women through her research, and writing.
