My greatest gift to the world is to describe the journey of moving from modern world paradigm participant, to reclaiming, not only conceptually, but in communal, embodied practice, ancient Earth paradigm. In this paradigm, women are synonymous with the Mother Earth, are synonymous with Life, and are central to the well-being of the family, the community, and humanity’s relationship with the cosmos.
There is a spiritual gift that moves from our biology, as women, as men, and as fluid, transgender beings, that is crucial to evolving our essential spiritual, and therefore material, relationships to Place. An essential part of the meaning of the word “indigenous” is “to be out of place.“ Here, Place is meaning home, country, in time, in purpose and our Place relative to the Sacred Hoop of all Life.
If that sounds inflated, grandiose or just plain hard to fathom, it should really come as no surprise. Our indoctrination, from birth, into modern worldview through institutions of every nature and at every step, has never mentioned such a possibility to most of us. The Feminine, and the embodied feminine as Woman, has been, by and large, talked out of the Truth of who they are to Creation and who Creation is to the Woman.
The primary reason our undertaking is so vital to this time is because until women begin to understand and claim their relationship to Earth… humanity’s contribution to the circle of life will remain grossly stunted.
The primary reason our undertaking is so vital to this time is because until women begin to understand and claim their relationship to Earth, as Earth, with Earth, and the Authority inherent in that relationship, humanity’s contribution to the circle of life will remain grossly stunted. At a time when we are being called on to step up and step into our perfect design for Thriving Life, we can afford our limited view of who we were created to be no longer. It simply will not serve.
As a former scholar, whose primary way of knowing was through the intellect, and through the twice removed experience of conceptualized reality, I understand that this “embodied sense of womanhood” can be elusive. I hope to bring ways of breaking through that conditioned barrier between conceptual and visceral knowledge, as part of our time together.
