For the very first time, the Awakened Woman conference is coming to Ubud – and it’s kicking off next week.

Eve Ensler, one of the most outspoken and fearless female voices against violence against women in the world, will be a keynote speaker. Ensler will address this year’s theme “Feminine Leadership,” along with other established speakers including Alexi Panos, thought leader in the Emergent Wisdom Movement, and Bibi McGill, a yogi who is best known as the lead guitarist and musical director of Beyoncé’s backing band, the Suga Mamas. They are among the more than thirty speakers who will be addressing the Awakened Woman conference this year.

Registration is still open for the conference, which will be hosted at the New Earth Haven just outside of Ubud in Keliki, Tegallalang, from November 20th – 27th. Described as ‘Where Burning Man meets Female Leadership’, the conference includes seven days of inspiration, transformation and connection – and attendees will interact with global thought leaders in women’s industries and politics, and choose from a diversity of over 50+ trainings and workshops.

Tony Award-winning playwright, performer, and activist, Eve Ensler is the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries. Her experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to launch V-Day, a global grassroots activist movement to stop violence against women and girls and to date, the V-Day movement has raised over $100 million and educated millions.

Eve Ensler has devoted her life to stopping violence, envisioning a planet in which women and girls will be free to thrive, rather than merely survive. On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, it launched its most ambitious campaign, ONE BILLION RISING, which inspired millions of people in 207 countries to ‘Strike, Dance, and Rise’ to end violence against women and girls on Feb 14, 2013, and continues to date as a global mass action campaign.

Ensler and other speakers will share their experience and expertise on a range of topics including women’s issues, female empowerment and feminine leadership, money management, health and sexuality, small business and entrepreneurship, spirituality and more.

“We are thrilled to be hosting a conference unlike any other, where global female thought leaders converge in a space that focuses on all areas of importance that really allow women to shine,” said Melissa Mackey, Co-founder of Awakened Woman conference. “These women are leaders in their fields and their collective wisdom inspires us all to embody what it means to be an Awakened Woman, and act from the awareness of our own power, freedom and liberated expression.”


“A percentage of profits from the conference will be going towards the building of the Awakened Woman Temple; a land project devoted to providing a holistic space around female empowerment and leadership,” says Phoenix Muranetz, Co-founder of Awakened Woman conference.
