Women and Girls Task Force

sara

Sara Jamil currently serves as co-lead of Women and Girls and has been an active ambassador for the Charter for Compassion Movement since 2013.

She is a woman of faith, a mother, educator, mentor, visionary leader, spiritual activist and champion of compassion, justice and peace.

As a world citizen, Sara is a skilled intercultural communicator navigating confidently in interfaith dialogue and community bridge-building. She courageously uses her agency to transcend stereotypical narratives in order to consciously pave the path for herself and others to thrive and flourish.

Sara is the founder of CompassionFirst, on a mission to create a better world- one empowered woman at a time. She firmly believes in being an agent of change. Thus, advocates passionately for personal responsibility and leadership, which she models through her tagline: “A Better World Starts with Me.”

Sara’s love for humanity and deep wisdom acquired from lived experiences, personal and spiritual growth, all enable her to show up with authenticity and vulnerability.

donnamillsDonna Mills lives in the aesthetically stunning Pacific Northwest, specifically in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She is a woman committed to all things that elevate human consciousness. She is a practitioner of the healing arts, an advocate for civil conversations, and a community educator. She is the founder of HumanWell Integrative Healing and Wellness where she sees private clients healing through trauma and grief. On the consulting side of HumanWell she designs integrative workplace wellness programs for large and small businesses. The name HumanWell was created out of her unwavering need to know “How do we human well? We can see where we are missing the mark in society, but where and how are we getting it right?” 

Donna is a certified caring economy advocate and partnership practitioner through Riane Eisler’s Center for Partnership Studies. She is a fierce advocate for a new narrative of economic success that elevates our collective human wellness and ability to thrive. Donna is a social healing practitioner, a narrative disruptor, and a cultural change agent. She is here to invite society into a deeper conversation about civility and connectivity. She believes that, “and justice for all” means just that. For all.

Donna earned a degree in Sustainable Small Acreage Farming and Ranching with an emphasis on Small Farm Advocacy, Community Education and Development, and Local Economics. She is a local food systems educator, and thrills in leading community members on local and regional farm tours to meet their farmers, ranchers, and other local artisan and cottage industry craftspeople. She is committed to investing her money in local spending first and foremost.

Donna is also a Lay Pastoral Minister through the Unitarian Universalist Association and is ordained to perform all many celebrations of life, from unions to end of life doula services. In this work she gently guides humans through the sacred journey of living and dying. She is often called upon to share her insightful wisdom on the divine, and has most recently stepped fully into her role as High Priestess in her Pagan faith. 

Donna is a mystic, a tarot reader, an intuitive healer, and a conscious thought leader for these changing times. She practices a very intentful and cyclical lifestyle that includes loads of joy, playful exploration, good food, and always, always, more beautiful humans. Indeed, she produced two such beautiful humans herself, her son Dane, and her daughter Rowan. She excels at growing food and wild foraging, loves to be on the water, is a collector of smiles, and can be found spending teatime with her favorite feline, Professor MooseySoftpaws.

brendaBrenda Gustin, Regional Women and Girls Co-Director Capitol Region, California

Brenda has always been interested in freeing ourselves from suffering, loosening beliefs and providing tools to clarify our view. Becoming a mother led her to co-create a Sudbury School for children to create from the innate desire to grow into responsible citizens. At The Radiant Health Center she and her colleagues assist adults in doing the same. As VP of Mercey Springs Foundation, she actively engages to highlight the work of great people and co-create the CA Vision 2020 Conferences with The Shift Network.

collaboration in creating a new world based in peace, harmony and pleasurable experiences for all. Sacred Geometry provides opportunity to learn about the nature within us all. The yantras of the chakras, planets, goddesses and their relationship to our bodies, mind and souls enhance our life journey. Through asana, drawing and painting yantras and mandalas, Brenda and her students open doorways leading to the Art of all things.

ClayBoykinClay Boykin

Raising consciousness among men is Clay Boykin’s calling. Clay has recently dedicated his next twenty years to creating circles of men around the world who gather, physically and virtually, to engage in contemplative conversations on the over-arching theme of male spirituality. Using his thirty-eight years as an organizational change agent, and with his deeply held principles of servant leadership, Clay founded the Men’s Fellowship Network. Since 2012, over 20,000 collective man-hours have been invested in exploring the divine masculine and divine feminine essence within every person. Clay’s recently published book, Circles of Men, examines how men come together in a contemplative setting to learn about vulnerability, cultivate trust, hold space, explore the many religious and spiritual traditions, and learn from one another’s life journey. Recently, Clay accepted a volunteer position as Assistant Director of Compassionate Austin, and is developing an initiative for the Charter for Compassion focused on Men and Boys
