“We lose our souls if we lose the experience of the forest, the butterflies, the song of the birds, if we can’t see the stars at night.”

Thomas Berry
Spiritual Activism Women's 8 week program

Solidarity Sisters

An 8-week community & cultural creation space exploring  spiritual activism, feminine wisdom, & transformational leadership.
Solidarity Sisters is a safe community space for women-identifying folks to gather in the spirit of sisterhood and to explore what it means to bridge outer activism with inner activism. It is intended to be a collaborative learning space where we engage as active participants to envision and co-create a new culture through authentic, intimate, transformative, and healing experiences where we share our stories, acknowledge our wisdom and transform our personal and collective consciousness.
 
This is an 8-week evolutionary and emergent process dedicated to dismantling the divisions that perpetuate separation and to recognizing ourselves and each other as powerful leaders. Here we will gather to build women’s power by listening and supporting one another, discovering our inner fire, speaking truth, and taking action in our communities in a way that is meaningful. Together we will explore embodiment and what it means to align our lives to our deepest held values through every day choices and actions. We will share conversation and ritual around what it means to be a woman today. We are here to know our strength and power as women to make change, and to help heal our beloved Earth community.
 
We hope 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 APRIL 3RD, 2019  |  7 – 9PM

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

Financial recognition is welcome.

conscious cooking series for women

Conscious Cooking

Growing conscious community one mindful dish at a time.

Conscious Cooking is for those who want to explore bringing mindfulness into their cooking experience and who want to learn and share with others how to “cook from scratch”.  It’s a group of veggie lovers, fermentation fans, herb and spice connoisseurs, holistic health enthusiasts and conscious eaters. 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. 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 your favorite meals to the table.

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

2ND & 4TH THURSDAY EACH MONTH STARTING ON MARCH 14th   |   5 – 8PM

Financial recognition is welcome. 

Gatherings

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: FEB. 5th, 2019  |  6 – 9PM

Topics of discussion:  Living from Conscious Choice, Self Worth, Boundaries, Communication, Self Care, Balance, Trust, Intimacy, Acceptance, Fixing People, Control.

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.
