Our leaders got confused.
So we are all leaders now.
|They told us there was nothing we could do.
They were wrong.
When we tell ourselves
There’s nothing we can do, we are wrong.
...We’re all making the soup
We’re all eating.
We’re all weaving the cloth.
We’re all wearing.

Greetings on the New Moon :)
We begin our weekly support calls this coming Wednesday, February 1st at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. In the spirit of gathering round the fire, each week this will be a place for us to come together for support, inspiration, accountability, courage, to refocus the mind and revitalize our courage to make each week conscious, empowering, and meaningful.
To register, simply reply to this email, and I will send you call-in details next week.
In my own life, and in the web of life in which we are all embedded, I see that our greatest source of distress (and power) is the elephant-in-the-room...
Our living systems are in danger of collapsing under the weight of our Industrial Growth Society. You are well aware of this, and concerned, yet how much time and space do you give to actually be with these feelings?
If we don’t give space in our lives to feel what we truly feel, we miss out on the unexpected reservoir of life force within us - our passion, power, creativity, and courage that flows underneath the low-level anxiety, chronic stress, worry, and, at times, even despair.
This weekly group is dedicated to unleashing our life force in service to the great web of life, so we can show up in our humanness, be real, courageous, creative, and fully aligned with our deepest held beliefs, values and desires to live a life of contribution to a life-sustaining future.
Our theme for February is:
The Power to Choose
Our focus for each week is as follows:
- Wed, Feb 1st: Gratitude and Self Care
- Wed, Feb 8th: Liberating Pain into Power
- Wed, Feb 15th: Seeing With New Eyes
- Tues, Feb 21st: Deep Time - Gathering Strength From the Ancestors and Future Generations
- Wed, Feb 29th: Going Forth with Courageous Action
The sliding scale contribution for these weekly sessions is $20-40 per call or $80-160 if you register for all five at the beginning of the month. I will send you the payment link with call-in details.
Simply reply to this email that you would like to be part of this unique circle of healing and empowerment, and I will be in touch with you directly with next steps.
I’m excited to be convening this sacred space for us to gather and grow together, each and every week. As we move into this new era of a trump presidency, we must stick together and stoke the fire of our inner resources more than ever. I look forward to being with you on Wednesday.
In grateful service and solidarity,
