SIGN UP FOR THE ADHARA NEWSLETTER
Meaning "support" in Sanskrit, Adhara is a space for women who are energetic, passionate, committed, and have a deep interest in developing themselves socially and spiritually.
Adhara is an environment for women to make powerful connections with our inner selves and others, unlock our potential, nurture our well being, and share our gifts and talents with the world.
We move beyond the narrow walls of industry, social norms, spiritual trends and soulless philanthropy to dig deeper in order to achive inner peace, personal growth and life fulfillment.
AND THOUGH SHE BE BUT LITTLE,
SHE IS FIERCE.
I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT
I WANTED TO DO BUT I KNEW THE
WOMAN I WANTED TO BECOME.
Adhara marks the beginning of a change in how women connect and share themselves.
We are dedicated to offering female-focused content and events that strengthen our opportunities for growth, allowing us to seek out our truth and form real connections that can help catapult us into the next phase of our lives, filled with authenticity, contentment and success.
WHEN SLEEPING WOMEN WAKE,
MOUNTAINS WILL MOVE.
Adhara was built for women from all walks of life, all industries and all ages. Everything that we do is designed with both our uniqueness in mind, as well as the idea that we are all seeking the same thing - guidance and support. Within our space, we’re creating a sense of freedom to talk about the things that we are truly passionate about, sharing ideas, and inspiring each other to live whole lives.
We are a social group by nature but we are also socially aware. We invest in our own Adhara women right here in New York City as well as women around the globe because we know that when women are economic agents and leaders, social change accelerates, returns multiply, and can be measured in our families, our neighborhoods, and on the other side of the world.
