8:45 am– 6:00 pm
Guided by Mary Marsden and Jennie Gershater Lopez
Inner Knowing is a process! One that deepens and flows when we weave ourselves in a web of conscious, respectful and intimate relatedness with our bodies, hearts, other women, Wild Nature, and Mystery.
~We Invite You~
Gather with us for a day on the land, along the waters of the Little Thompson River, to cultivate and live into such a web! We’ll engage in practices that include solo wandering on the land, imagery, poetry, dance/movement, rhythm, reflective time and writing, and TruthTelling Council. Rooted in ancient earth wisdom traditions, TruthTelling Council is a contemporary form of embodied council, created by and for women.
Bellies on the Earth
Gathering in this way, our listening deepens and broadens, our intuition awakens. We re-member. We deeply imagine in ways that connect us with the heart and hum of the cosmos. We locate the strength and resolve to act upon the fire and truth rising within us. And, not surprisingly, the fierce truths of startling personal and collective necessity are as likely to ring out through another woman’s voice, as our own.
We are Calling You
We are cultivating spaces for women to remember their Inner Knowing, guided by the wisdom of nature and the witness and reflection of women in ceremonial community space. We fiercely support women to support each other to LIVE their Inner Knowing into the world. Contact either or both of us to register and for more information.
