"I face truth"
I grow through my honesty and humility before life as it is. I choose to see things as they are. I do not look away. I consider who I am being and why. I consider the consequences of my choices and the privilege of living in right relationship to my own values, those I love and life itself. I listen for the greater intelligence of nature and to my own bodies knowing, and I respond in ways that seek to serve balance and harmony. I am awake to the potential within myself and I live as an invitation to the more and I am and we all are, as we evolve into a restorer species - on behalf of life.
to wake up and get real about climate change
Having faced how things are, I know that I cannot deal with this alone. I need to find and stand with others of like heart and mind, so that together we can unleash our collective love, creativity, audacity and brilliance. I need to belong, to feel safe to open my heart, to be seen, appreciated and of value, to be inspired and to inspire. I long for the togetherness within which I can stop playing safe, be encouraged to let rip and let roar, to step into who and what I really am, to experience my fullness and capacity to include all - on behalf of life
to get together with like-hearted women to build the network
Standing in safe sisterhood, strengthened and supported, knowing that I have a place to stand, I am strong enough to face and feel how things really are. I can open my senses, my body, my emotions and my mind to experience my indivisibility with all that is - know myself intimately as a part of nature - discover how to deepen that intimacy until I remember how to listen and follow the intelligence that throbs through the fabric of our ecology and cosmos, as part of myself. I am willing to feel what is happening to the natural world that is breathing me - feel it, grieve and respond - on behalf of life
to feel how things are so that your body recognizes itself as part of nature
Having felt how things are, I need to respond - I need to do something that makes sense in relationship to what I know and feel. I need to take action. Having felt my body, I know what I need to do differently. Having felt the world, I know how I need to live differently so that my doing no longer contributes to yet more destruction. I need to respond with awareness and live in ways that serve and restore life - my own - my cultures - my planet - back towards health and balance. I fund trees every month as an action towards balancing warming with cooling as I reweave the fabric of nature - on behalf of life
to respond appropriately so that your actions contribute to a sustainable future
Now that I have felt how I need to live in ways that honour my heart, body and world, I want to know what is mine to do. I want to give my gifts - to stop doubting myself and start shining my light. I want to experience my fullness in service to everything that I love and want to protect. I want to feel my courage and discover my strength, feel the fear and do it anyway, become 'walking permission' for others, step into my own authentic leadership and unique abilities and be myself, more than I have ever been. I want to live the most meaningful life I can live - on behalf of life
to offer your gifts, creativity and courage to the cause
The expressive, dynamic, outward, active aspect of ourselves that can either dominate or serve life (the feminine) If this aspect is in service, then it can use its logic and capacity to listen for what's needed and then create and deliver order, structure, form, boundaries and clarity to husband life (whether ourselves, communities, systems or planet) into greater harmony and abundance. We call this the 'out-breath' of the Map.
The centre of the map is the womb. The womb is the gateway of life, it is the root of our becoming, it is the nurturance of Mother. It is also planet, ecology, nature as creatress, the root of all we are, our most primary relationship and our direct connection to source and creation through the mystery and abundance of life. Every choice surrounding this centre highlights the quality and importance of our relationship to life itself, as our reason for being and doing...
The receptive, instinctual, relational, feeling aspect of ourselves that recognizes itself as indivisible from all of life, is innately connected and woven in to existence - able to tap into the intelligence of nature and others. This deep listening capacity enables us to feel how things are (feminine) so that we can then act upon that knowing (masculine) to serve our bodies, each other and our planet. We call this is the 'in-breath' of the Map.
There is a way to feel empowered in the face of climate change, and that is by taking actions that make sense in relationship to life and that work towards the sort of future that you want for your children. This is one such moment.
Our unique feminine approach is based upon the understanding that we need to become deeply connected to the natural world through the nature of our own bodies, before we will shift our behaviours to respect and protect the world of which we are a part.LEARN MORE ABOUT US
