About us

 

We are three women coming from different walks of life who are joining in our desire to contribute, at any scale we may be able to, to the changes that need to take place in our culture and systems, so that the coming generations may enjoy our beautiful Mother Earth and all the beautiful and valuable species that inhabit her.

 

As a civilization we have profoundly come off balance by trying to own what is not ours and by exploiting the finite resources of our great Mother. We have significantly disrupted natural cycles, climate patterns and eco-systems, which together with corporate greed and political fail, have led to the degradation of Earth, the suffering and mass extinction of other species, the exploitation of indigenous peoples and minorities, and the increase of social injustice.  We have polluted our seas with plastic to the extent that other species suffocate and die from it. We have poisoned and exploited our land for fast gain, not thinking of the future. We are even jeopardizing our own health and wellbeing as we are eroding the very basis of our existence.

 

This scenario may feel very discouraging and overwhelming, and we may be prone to react with denial, cynicism or blaming those in power. However we believe that this can be a time of profound awakening of the heart, which will reconnect us with what is essential and whole in us. In the midst of these challenging times, we can find the joy of remembering who we really are and honor all of our relationships. Instead of reacting we can examine our behaviors, choices and consumption, find our place within the community of all living beings and begin to be a force for change.  

 

Our combined skill set is in the field of transformation - body oriented therapy, depth and process work, mindfulness meditation, group work, including nature-based work, and education. We want to offer our skills and energy to help individuals find resources within a community of likeminded others and to find their own way of contributing to this important evolutionary step.
