JOIN OUR NEXT SUNRISE MOVEMENT MEETUP

Sunrise is a movement led by young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We are building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people. 

We are ordinary young people who are scared about what the climate crisis means for the people and places we love. We are gathering in classrooms, living rooms, and worship halls across the country. Everyone has a role to play. Public opinion is already with us – if we unite by the millions we can turn this into political power and reclaim our democracy.

We are not looking to the right or left. We look forward. Together, we will change this country and this world, sure as the sun rises each morning.

NEXT MEETUP: APRIL 23RD, 2019  |  7 – 9:30PM

GROWING CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY ONE MINDFUL DISH AT A TIME.

Calling all veggie lovers, fermentation fans, herb and spice connoisseurs, holistic health enthusiasts and conscious eaters. Nourish your body, mind and soul as we explore how to deepen our relationship to food. Learn and share with others how to create simple dishes using rich and nutritious ingredients. We will share recipes, cook together, listen to music, and feast around a table while sharing stories and enjoying nutritious, balanced, wholesome meals.

We hope to bring to the table a fermented series that includes homemade sourdough bread, kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, and pickling along with a foraging series that brings us into deeper connection with the land. We would also love to make homemade foods like soup broth, hummus, peanut butter, and desserts like banana bread and cookies. Our hope is that each participant will feel inspired to share their own kitchen secrets and to bring their favorite meals to the table.

This is an opportunity to learn about and share in the pleasure of preparing (mostly) plant-based, homemade, & overall healthy meals that nourish our bodies, purify our minds, energize our hearts, and provide healthy bacteria for our guts that keep us balanced and in harmony with the chemistry of our overall well-being.

SolidaritySisters-FBpageheader (1)
Solidarity Sisters is an 8-week conscious women’s group dedicated to exploring spiritual activism, feminine wisdom and transformational leadership. This is for women-identifying folks to gather in the spirit of sisterhood as we connect deeply to ourselves, to each other and to Earth.

We come together as we are, in a safe space to be held in sisterhood, to be seen, and to navigate our own wounds that are calling to be healed at this time. Within this safe container we’ve co-created, we explore our shadow issues, archetypal work, unravel our relationship patterns and support one another to develop a deeper sense of wholeness, power and integration as conscious women.

Through this weekly emergent group process, we will actively participate in creating the kind of culture we long to see in the world through authentic, intimate, and healing experiences that transform personal and collective consciousness. We will build women’s power by sharing our stories, listening to and supporting one another, discovering our inner fire, speaking truth, and taking action in a way that feels meaningful.

———-

WHAT WE DO TOGETHER:
Through nature connection, group process, ritual & ceremony, and organic free flow, we explore the following:
– Transpersonal/Shadow Work
– Family systems & the inner child
– Power dynamics in relationships
– Archetypal work
– Women’s wisdom & earth cycles
– Intuitive awareness

———-

COST & ATTENDANCE:
There is no cost to join this group however we are looking for folks who are committed to the entire 8-week journey.

To honor the depth of connection we’ve created, Solidarity Sisters is not a drop-in group. We ask women to commit to a minimum of 8 weeks in the sisterhood, though most women who join us stay permanently.

Our hope is that from this shared experience, a resilient and dedicated support group will form and expand into new forms of collaboration after the program. We also hope to offer a second iteration of this experience next Fall.

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS BEGINNING ON MAY 8th 2019  |  7 – 9:30PM

Custom Experiences

Eco-Spiritual Programs

Are you a part of a team, group, religious or spiritual community looking to have a guided experience that connects you to the natural world? Timberlake founder Carolyn Toben, spiritual teacher, educator, and cultural innovator, creates programs, re­treats and events for individuals and groups seeking spiritual renewal and reconnection with the natural world. She facilitates deep and intimate discussions on the human-earth relationship, and leads people through eco-spiritual experiences, evoking a sense of the Sacred through communion with Earth.  

Sacred Ceremonies

Sacred Ceremonies are Life Season Ceremonies that mark important transitional periods in a person’s life, such as birth, puberty, marriage, having children, and death. They involve ritual activities and teachings designed to help us transition gracefully into new chapters and seasons of our lives. Is there a moment approaching in your life or the life of a loved one that you would like to honor and recognize? We work with you to carefully craft a deeply personal, meaningful and symbolic experience that acknowledges transformation. 

Example: A Mother Blessing Ceremony

This is an alternative to the traditional baby shower, which prepares a woman for transition into motherhood. It is a time for the mother-to-be to gather with the women closest to her, toward the end of her pregnancy, and cultivate positive energy for her upcoming birth experience.
