There's no doubt that last year was an extraordinary event. All those women, showing up, letting go of all that bound them and getting to heal with and celebrate the magic that true sisterhood provides. We had such a juicy, deep, nourishing blast!
We yearn for each other. Studies have shown that women with close females friends live healthier, longer lives - it's because we wither without our sisters, and thrive with them.
It is my deep desire to bring this to any woman in the world who doesn't have it - now, more than ever, we need women in their full power, to take leadership into a new world, one in right relationship to each other and our big Mumma - this abundant, delicious world we live on, and all other beings who call her home.
I had the honour this year to be one of the co-ordinators of Extinction Rebellion - where I got to use my talents of gathering people in a space of Radical Participation, in LOVE, where we all bring our gifts - so that we were not just blocking roads - we were using that space to occupy it with a vision of the world our hearts knew was possible - I saw so many of my WomanFesters there, in their strength and resilience and we cried with each other as we were taken away one-by-one by the police. I remain so humbled by everyone who KEEPS SHOWING UP to the table, again and again and again, in the face of overwhelming adversity. In their own life, in the struggles for freedom and justice, and a sustainable, thriving planet. A deep bow to you all for showing up when she most needs you, a deep bow to those still too paralysed by the grief and and rage what we've done, and fear of what's to come - we see you, and we are here to help you through that into action whenever you need us.
Woman Fest 2019 is just around the corner, and once again it is a call to all those who yearn for it, all those who wish to step into their power and purpose - to find your place in the new world we HAVE to build, for the sake of all living beings and for ourselves.
We need everyone in this - especially Women - The rebellion is indigenous and female centred - it is not just about climate change - it is a reconnection to the world around us and a defiant NO to the ties that bind us to the old paradigm of Scarcity, division and control.
We reclaim our Sovereignty as Women, as humans, as beings of LOVE.
Bring on this year's cauldron of transformation and delight! Bring on 2019!
With all my love
see you in the field
