Welcome, conscious, creative Pinays!
Here is a safe, online space for Pinays where we focus on conscious interbeing (kapwa) and wholeness (kagandahang loob).
Hello, k'musta na! I'm Omehra. I've been publishing Pinay.com for over 20 years.
This August 2020, I've transformed Pinay.com into an online portal whereby a Pinay can find something different and exciting for her journey— ang kanyang lakaran— effecting growth and change in her life.
Side note: All the thoughtful posts and features written by Filipinas from the past years will be added to this new site soon.
Here at Pinay.com I am gathering together conscious Pinay sisters from across the globe—there are now so many more that are to be found—to support you in your own awakening, self-discovery, becoming whole, co-creativity, and actions for good. It's our collective mission to inspire and energize Filipina leaders and future Filipina leaders.
Alongside other spiritual, philosophical and universal wisdom traditions many of us will be grounding our offerings in Philippine indigenous tradition and wisdom, such as pakikipagkapwa, sacred interconnection to all beings and all life in the Cosmos.
If you seek to deepen your spiritual purpose and personal power in being part of creating a better tomorrow for us and future generations, then be excited and explore the many possible interconnections and interweaving of our passion and efforts.
We're a growing global group of women with Philippine ancestry with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and bodies of work—and we're here to empower you to become fully who you are and to bring about positive, sustainable change within your relationships, communities and their neighborhoods.
Join us in working towards birthing a new global conscious, compassionate humanity and a better home for our loved-ones and all beings on this precious planet.
It's time. We can do it, sweet sisters.
Subong na. Himuon ni naton.
Panahon na. Kaya natin ito.

The Kultivating Kapwa podcast series is hosted by Jana Lynne Umipig and Olivia Sawi. In their first series, they sit down with Leny Strobel, talking about her life, her work, decolonization, academia, ethno-autobiography, her relationship to nature, the land, and all living beings, and her views of the future. In their second series, They have conversations with members of the CFBS community and explore how decolonization has manifested itself in their work, and how they cultivate kapwa in their own lives.
Explore events and online courses on pagbabalikloob (decolonization). CfBS is a non-profit organization based in North America that bridges Filipinos in the diaspora with indigenous people, traditions and practices of the Philippines. Omehra Sigahne is a 2010 co-founder of CfBS along with Leny Strobel, Letecia Layson and Baylan Megino. Today, the new director is Lily Mendoza and the new core has created wonderful new offerings such as the Kultivating Kapwa podcast, IG live events, and the successful GINHAWA series.
The more one engages in it, the more the goodness in the persons involved is evoked from within.
Thus kapwa is an inner principle of shared goodness/Godness, not just shared identity.
Through the revelation of our potential for shared goodness, the process of kapwa affirms and recognizes the ultimate oneness of humankind.“
