"A circle of women may just be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get Naked. Let them see you. Let them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love gentle. You will be changed. The very fabric of your being will be altered by this, if you allow it. Please, please allow it." ~ Jeanette LeBlanc Stepping into conscious togetherness as women can be one of the most powerful acts of healing, activism and invocation of a new paradigm that we can do. It can also serve as an invitation to ignite on behalf of nature and take action about the things that matter most to us. Alone we can be astonishing. Together we will be unstoppable. From a group of my "Tree Sisters" around the Globe: "We have to believe in women's ability to work magic." This sentence struck me to the core when I heard it a couple of weeks ago. reflecting on this woman-magic and the new possibilities that arise when women get together in circle. One: They remind us we're emotional creatures, and that's ok. In a world where reason is valued highly, and emotion often seen as weak, an evening with women who are openly sharing their feelings is powerful medicine. Listening to the challenges, joys, frustrations and longings of other women calls us home into ourselves as a feeling creatures. We are reminded that the willingness to be receptive and to 'feel what is' weaves us into interconnectivity with all things. This connection to Life awakens our care for Life - inspiring a river of love that can fuel our sacred activism in the world. Two: They root us back into our cyclical nature and remind us to take care of ourselves. We women ebb and flow with the tides and experience nature's seasons within our own bodies. But in a world that values productivity above all, it can be so easy to forget our cyclical nature and push ourselves beyond our limits, can't it? Even an hour with a circle of women can plug us back in, and help us harness our energy and creativity when it is at it's height, as well as remember to stop when it's time to rest and renew. Imagine what millions of resourced, nourished women who take exquisite care of themselves could create on this planet of ours?! Three: They heal our bodies. There are healing keys within the female body. One of them is Oxytocin, the 'Love Hormone' which helps to activate the rest and digest part of our nervous system, support our immune function, reduce stress, and help us feel grounded, safe, and part of a greater whole. Women's circles are an Oxytocin-filled haven; deep listening with no agenda, hugs and nourishing touch, feeling seen, met and accepted just as we are, and a sense of kinship all activate a flush of oxytocin and it's host of healing effects. With the chronic illness epidemic that is currently affecting millions of women globally - women's circles could be a powerful key to help women create and maintain full health. Four: They help us step into leadership and commit to our life work. So many of us are feeling the call to step out into greater leadership in our lives. And we know we can't do it alone. We can do it because we are part of a sisterhood, part of a movement that recognises our togetherness as a gateway to life's limitless intelligence. When we get together, we actively awakens our feminine nature - the part of us that can more easily expand beyond our limited sense of self, into the sea of collective consciousness. From there we can tap into endless resources of creativity and intelligence to inspire our work and embolden us as we lead - the same intelligence that make the tree roots grow, and the waves rise and fall and the planets orbit the sun. Stepping into conscious togetherness as women can be one of the most powerful acts of healing, activism and invocation of a new paradigm that we can do. It can also serve as an invitation to ignite on behalf of nature and take action about the things that matter most to us. Alone we can be astonishing. Together we will be unstoppable.

You are a co-creator Please feel free to write a bit about yourself to and background and goals to share as well as we use month 1 to prepare the land. To be included in next month's newsletter. Thank you for your proactive beingness & your desire to live your best life.There are many who are actively destroying the past and there are many who are getting crushed by the changing times. There are many things going on. Change is going to happen, regardless. The question is, Will you take part in creating your place in the new? Will you claim what is yours or are you going to allow others to claim it for you? Will you be a cocreator of the transcendental season of the Woman without a heart full of hate for men or your own gender? As women and a collective we can not go back to the old ways no matter how far off-the -grid we go. Not because we can't farm or stay home and make babies but because "we" as women, have changed. We can't undo the transformation that already occured without us playing an active role in it. If we had played an active role and gone with the changes in "awareness" we would have reached Equality and Equal pay by now. But we haven't. There are many opressed people. And it is our duty to hold those around us accountable,as human beings, to be the best versions of themselves. It is up to us to support all those that make moves to keep all dreams Alive. Especially that of our Black brothers and sisters but remember The First Human Oppression. "How many miles must a man walk before they can call him a man" Well howany miles must a woman walk before they can consider her a Most powerful human and AN Equal ? It is also our responsibility to redefine ourselves as women and to speak up for all women about and against the first oppression which was that of the woman. Women Of all colors. After having women as leaders in Ancient Egypt, as fierce warriors as Athena and Viking women Shield maidens, after being mainly medicine "women" not all male shaman..after being one of the main reasons this world was conquered ..we were suppressed each decade in humanity as a whole in the history of us more and more and WE as women allowed it. We were told we were the weakest race straight out of the womb. In some cultures genitals mutilated, in others body modification and in others historically seen as less-than a full human being and at times even put to death because of it... The sexual liberation of the woman came at a very high price and another level of servitude and being objects of entertainment while having the same double standards from centuries past. Instead of more liberation we are finding more judgement. Out of the house because they needed women to fill the new factories to work while more and more men went to war. That is why Women's Liberation was allowed. So the factories could keep producing Not so we could vote! Educate yourselves. It was just like many smaller trending movements ..which end up being perfect ways to label and get the humans against each other. Out of the house, the Modern woman ~ Had to work (for less money!) and make it in a man's world still earning less, while on top of that, entertaining men. Women still carry stillettos in briefcases and flats for the commute. Many still have to sleep their ways up the corporate and social ladders and women still hit a glass ceiling. How is that for improvement? They are still used to Sell products. After a lifetime of marketing strategies Women begin comparing themselves with other women without even meaning to. After a lifetime of being told out of the womb You are the weaker sex And What a woman should do How a woman should be Having the Mother and main elder women mostly working or trying to fit into a man's world It's no wonder after centuries of having our gender, our role in the world defined by us, it's no wonder Women struggle. We can do something about this! Believe Have Faith We can We can do more right the *F* now! This is the most perfect time And we can do it without Male Bashing or hating men!!! No hate No hate Just love ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ Now that I gave you a little of the historical amazing journey of the woman on the prettiest planet in the solar system. The planet you have served bringing forth the future kings and queens of Gaia/ Planet Earth. You are a reflection of my mother (gaia) Know that you are beautiful to me. ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ The group/circle (happy place 🤗) will be something you can attend every Sunday or 2 sundays a month or 1 and 1 Thursday at Zenva kava for art and just fun. You can do whatever you are able to do! Do what YOU want. But commit above all to yourself. If you don't do this Do commit to yourself. The First month I will present and open our space for us. I come with the foundation of 3 groups in this one being the Goddess Rising movement, second Tree sisters and third the positive sexuality movement. I will only use those as guidelines for us to have a positive group with impact on our lives, loved ones and our communities. We will get to reach out to each other in an administrative Equal way. As equals we all can do this. I need your help Huh? Well my loves I have Medical Physical conditions that make me perfect for the role of the granny seed planter haha because I can NOt be Queen Bee I have Neurological and vision opportunities for growth. I gave myself lessons in order to walk my path. Lessons that if passed helped me to reach a more peaceful state of being which I use on my work with the Shamanic and End of Life work I do. So YES it's time for all my leaders to rise but together. And we women can with the right tools we can tailor to be able to use for our individual unique group/circle a d with the nature of all that is around us and all that we are. If you find typos please excuse because ..hey .this was a lot to put together as informative and entertainingly authentic as possible and talk to text is not always my friend. I need you to shine. I need your help. I want to learn from you as well. I do all self healing all natural with Science and great neurologist & medical team for my diagnostics and to ensure I am doing ok But I can not do this alone. Sometimes we desire to rise up to the opportunity of being the best version of ourselves and because that is so important we drop the Ego and ask for help because it is for the good of all not just a cause or personal goal. The first month will be what is covered in a different way of course but what is traditional in establishing successful intentional communities. And in doing something bigger than ourselves such as redefining to leaving it indefinable and erasing all previous labels we must work together as well as individually in order to do this. A little run down of the first month and please note if you like them I can present again as we go along but I want all of you to share the wealth of information and tools and gifts you have as well. Goddess Universe God We Got YOU. Let the roses and wildflowers Bloom! 🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️ First month offerings 🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅Language since we will be communicating 🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅🌅 ☀️Learning about your own personal language Learn to identify and communicate to others with their own personal language too. We all speak unique languages. What some may define as a challenge others thrive on A trauma for one need not be a trauma for another. Learning our own language and monitoring our self talk us expanding do as to communicate in a more elevated manner with love and compassion for ourselves and others Once we are aware and cool with that we can set Healthy Boundaries. Super important to address that and get to practice that with ourselves and integrate it for the good of our circle/group and the good of others around us. ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️Next Setting Healthy Boundaries Resources Activities Support will be provided ☀️Positive sexuality The Positive Sexuality Movement has been going on for several decades, but the term “positive sexuality” has been a fairly recent phenomenon. This is a set of ideas that not only encompass the diversity of human sexuality and behavior, but also provide a framework for healthy living, problem-solving, and addressing various social issues. Which hand in hand goes with the just say yes movement. All good and great resources will be provided. Just Say Yes is about having a positive attitude towards sexuality -- gay, straight,bisexual or whatever. It's about saying "yes" to sex you do want, and "no" to sex you don't. It says there's nothing wrong with you if you decide to have sex, and nothing wrong with you if you decide not to. You have the right to make your own choices, and to have people respect them. Sex is enjoyable when everyone involved is into it, and when everyone has the information they need to take care of themselves and each other. We will provide many resources individually as well for each woman afterwards. I am affiliated and a Speaker of and for the Positive sensuality movement and the organization Consensuality. I am with and became a part of the positive sexuality movement because of my work taking traditional tantra and healing to the Bunny Ranch, Love ranch and the women of these plus teaching at Festivals as well as holding workshops and teaching consensuality and Consent is sexy at the And Then There Was Love camp which houses the Orgy Dome at Burning Man (where there has never been not 1 incident in 11 years at the Burn). Part of it is the 30 to 40 minute speech/class on consent and the proper rules of engagement told to people around the globe of all ages above 21. During my limited time with you in the positive sexuality meetup, I wish to share as much as you allow me to because I really do have a wealth of information to give having been blessed with Courage not money alone (meaning that manifested for my path) to walk my path I too have experienced rape and abuse so I have a broad perspective when it comes to my knowledge of my gender. I have seen many sides of the divine feminine and above all been blessed by her in other women around me. Among many other things I have also taught Women's womb healing at festivals and events noted on my website, some lineups still found online, advanced Vama Marga Tantra around this side of the world as well as helped rape victims (all genders) and women in jail. So we can make it a series I do one a quarter etc. But it will be one I offer the First month for you as it is all information I used to give for large groups of people at very large events and conferences as well as women in cannabis retreats and positive sexuality gatherings. Lastly during the first Month A Group Q & A (fun!
