NORDIC FEMALE POWER
INGMARI LAMY, AMBASSADOR FOR THE NORDIC FEMALE POWER CHAPTER
NORDIC POWER, RUNNING DEEP WITH THE NORDIC FEMALE
This chapter concentrates on Scandinavian women who exude an ineffable strength that’s both soft and fierce.
Determined, focused and tenacious, the Nordic Female is a powerful being, but without the aggression or competitiveness normally associated with such qualities.
While working in Sweden on a separate project, I couldn’t help but notice this trait appear time and time again in women I crossed paths with. Though working in a variety of industries – everything from modelling to construction – these Nordic women engaged with society in an unexpected way, and embodied this quiet, compelling energy that had to become the next New Chieftains chapter.
Like all New Chieftains, these women are limitless in scope and continually achieving greatness, but are doing so through a ‘feminine’ lens that’s fostered not only through their connections with people, particularly the maternal figures in their lives, but also with Mother Earth.
It’s this profound, unwavering relationship with nature that I find most intriguing. The Nordic Female, often solitary or nomadic in spirit, is deeply rooted in her environment, wherever that may be. Despite, or perhaps because of, the modern industry she works in, or technology she employs, she returns to the quiet stillness of nature to reflect and find inspiration. Whether she’s working on community buildings, miniature, wearable architecture, or a short blog post for her followers, this connection to nature is at the forefront of everything she does.
Eschewing a comfortable existence and the expectations of others, the Nordic Female is ever-evolving, gaining her inner wisdom and understanding of the world through her work, meditation and the natural world.
