Sharing Earth Mother visions

CAROLYN HILLYER: WE BEAR WITNESS TO THIS WIDE EARTH (The Mother)

We are powerfully, tenderly grown from the home of this planet. We remember the soil and the sea and the stone that sustain us. We honour this Earth that still longs for our souls. She wears the bones that await our wild prayers and into her lap we will lay our own bones…

In a braid of word and dream and drum and song, Carolyn will share her recorded offering to this unique Earth Mother conference. Our potential in relation to graceful stewardship of the land and fierce protection of Earth is beyond measure. Our capacity to be intuitive, articulate, peaceable warriors in defending our world and preserving human kindness is beyond measure. Our creativity in embarking on powerful and positive paths through the precarious new realities of this time are beyond measure. Our voices are not yet lost. Our choices are not yet passed. Together we bear witness to this wide earth…

EXTINCTION REBELLION:

In service to our great Mother is my life’s work, moving through grassroots Movements and always with Her hand and heart guiding me to the winning side. I would like to guide you; her strong warriors, healers, truth speakers and wise seers into an initiation of collective action and our vital role for Her future.

GABRIELLE O’CONNELL

A spoken word offering in honour of the exquisite beauty and wilderness of Mother Earth, Nature and the Divine Feminine within all things. Gabrielle’s poetry is a lyrical expression of love for the planet and a deep call for elemental connection in these times of change.

LAURA GHIANDA: WONDER MOUNTAIN – AN ODE TO MOTHER MOUNTAIN AND HER GIFTS

Time has come to learn to see the mountain in a new way, as the place where the earth kisses the sky, where breathtaking beauty can turn into breathtaking fear, where polarities melts and everything becomes One. How to meet mountain as a Goddess face, beyond any dualism that prescribes the earth as impure and the high sky as the only place where sanctity and gods dwell. Words, images, emotions and experiences from a Priestess of the Mountain.

YESHE MATTHEWS

Peace Tree Ceremony: creating a road for the spirits
In Eastern shamanistic cultures, there is a prevalent belief that negative circumstances, harm, difficulty, and destruction are caused by restless or wandering spirits who have been trapped in the state between life and death, or who are angry because the place where they live has been disturbed. These spirits either knowingly or unknowingly cause problems for the living, whilst also suffering themselves. The Peace Tree ceremony, popularized in the west by the late Buryat shaman Sarangarel Odigan, is a compassionate ritual that helps to create a passage for the spirits to be released from their suffering and to transcend this earthly existence, while improving the cleanliness and harmony of the natural landscape. It is a beautiful series of offerings that can be made outside of hospitals, at parks, in areas that have been devastated by fires, floods, or other natural disasters, at sites of murders or other violent deaths, and in cemeteries. Yeshe will demonstrate a brief and simple version of the Peace Tree ceremony that can be performed even by those previously unfamiliar with shamanic practices.

LUNCHTIME with Spirit Doll Myths * Earth Circles led by experienced Priest/esses.

ANNA-SAQQARA PRICE

ANNA-SAQQARA PRICE: Mothering for childless Mothers

How we mother ourselves and birth creative projects / healing / our gifts into the world .
A healing Arts ceremony for non mother’s ie those who like me who are childless, had terminations when young or still births , and thus are not ‘mothers ‘. Lots of trauma comes up for us childless women when the focus is on mothers ! So we will be exploring the archetype of the Primal Mother, releasing and cutting ties to the trauma/ pain ( of childlessness) using sound and movement . We will also be looking at how when we embody the Primal Mother we can mother ourselves , friends Family , projects, offering healing , sharing our gifts with the world, without depleting ourselves.
We will close with a Healing arts  ceremony were you journey to meet your Primal Mother & embody her creatively, birthing your gifts into the world.

CAIRELLE CROW: BLOOD SONG: WISDOM OF THE MITOCHONDRIAL MOTHERS

Hidden within all women, microscopic treasures sing a genetic melody that links us, womb to womb to womb, through thousands of generations back to one woman, a mother, known as “Mitochondrial Eve.” Originally called “Lucky Mother,” as the sole Ancestress of all humans living now, in her time she was unknowingly the Earth Mother Goddess incarnate. Her powerful legacy continues today in the precious pearls of wisdom inherited on a cellular level by each of us through the blood and birthing waters of our sacred female ancestors.
In this workshop, Cairelle will lead a collective journey into the land of divine female genealogy. We will explore the basics of mitochondrial DNA with illustrative visuals and discussion, and also learn where and how to discover the particulars of our individual maternal lineage. Drum-led meditation will introduce us to the Mitochondrial Mothers, those ancient women who traveled Earth through the millennia, bringing forth a magnificent rainbow of daughters whose matrilineal blood songs still flow within us all. We will close with a ceremony to honor all Mother lineages and when we depart, each woman will carry the reawakened knowledge to manifest and maintain a meaningful connection with the long line of wise women from whom she descends. (Please note, this workshop IS suitable for adoptees.)
Since the workshop is now virtual, attendees are asked to have a red or white candle of any kind available for our ceremony, plus a source to light it. Battery-operated candles are also fine.

KARIN PERSONS & LEONIE STOUT: WHAT GOES UP MUST GO DOWN…

Unlimited growth, personal or businesswise is an unhealthy illusion of a goal-oriented patriarchal system. The Natural Rhythm of the Earth teaches us that after the ”High” of the SunLover Goddess, the direction to turn to is inwards. It is Demeter, the EarthMother, who calls you in, who calls you home, into Her Dark Depths.

In this practical, experiential and playful workshop you will learn how to work with the Earthly Business On The Moon Wheel. The Rhythm of this Wheel enhances your vitality, gives you specific time and place where to embody Her Abundance and manifest your creativity, while you journey down. You will learn to recognize the -sometimes literally- sickening, energy consuming patterns in the wheel; These are the patterns which keep you from coming into manifestation of your lives desire. You will experience how to re-enter by actually Mothering yourself.

Are you a good Mother to yourself?
We do this Re-Mothering Work on four levels, – mental, physical, spiritual and emotional- and provide ample day-to-day examples to take home with you.
(Re)Mothering Work is about so much more that just pampering and make time for self-care; it is Work and you need some endurance. At the end of the workshop you will have Re-Membered the values of Primal Motherhood through ReSistering/Brothering, ReWilding, ReKindling, ReStructuring, ReConnecting, Replenishing, Reflecting and ReValueing yourself. Moreover, you ReMember that you never Walk Alone on Mother Earth! Know that during the workshop we use some body- and breathing techniques, light trancework and inspire one another by sharing.

Elemental Blessings Of Earth Mother Goddess

In this workshop you’ll journey with body meditations and elemental embodiment practices incorporating movement, breath, self-touch, and sound, to connect with the elemental forces of Earth Mother as the very forces of life that move through you.

We’ll smell, taste, look to, touch, and listen for Her in our bodies.
We’ll call to Earth Mother Goddess to show us Her rich tapestry of interconnectedness that She weaves throughout all of life with the threads of Her five elements.

DESPACHO – living prayer for Mother Earth

The despacho brings us into right relationship with our world and with ourselves.

It’s an offering to the earth and to the heavens, a living prayer of gratitude for all the blessings we have received.

Ayni: the word itself means RECIPROCITY… ‘As I give, so shall I receive’, ‘whatever I sow, so shall I reap’.

This is a beautiful way to dream our world into being.

When we create an ayni despacho we do this to manifest into our world al that we need in order to step into our becoming.

As we work with our despacho we envision a world of munay (love), of balance and abundance that we can step into.

The shamans have always known that by aligning ourselves to the forces of nature, we are able to create a reality that doesn’t collude with the collective dream of scarcity, lack and fear, but a reality based on the natural forces of the universe which are powerful, creative, ever present and vital.

When we come into RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the earth, with the heavens and with ourselves we align ourselves with this natural, universal life force that flows through every living thing, and that informs every living atom.  We live in an abundant world that is naturally beautiful.  The shaman, when creating the ayni despacho, holds a vision of what is possible for the world that is based on beauty and abundance, the sweetness, the nectar of life and the wisdom that we all inherently hold.

The despacho is a living prayer that allows us to thank the universe for that which we are about to receive! It does this in the spirit of service to the family/community/village/society that we live in.

Because when each of us grants ourselves the gift of abundance, we become abundant, radiant, generous human beings who do what they love, share what they can,  and love what they do, so creating a world in balance
