Women are the greatest untapped resource on this planet.
Women are wild, powerful forces of Nature.
But how many of us have become tidy, contained,
acceptable versions of ourselves when raging rivers run beneath the surface?
We need those rivers, let loose in creative expression and audacious action.
Freed up and bonded together we could move mountains.
What could be more needed than millions of heart centered women
offering their gifts in service to the one who Mothers us all?
As I explore this edge of dissolving into communion with Mature, I am struck again and again by the astonishing teachers that surround us in every moment, if only we will wake up and allow ourselves to be permeated by life. The rivers are one such teacher.
Welcome to our Full Moon River Series. In this four part series of Full Moon online events, you will discover how you can open up your energies and surrender to the fullness of your own vital life force and capacity for love, healing and expansion.
In these meditative journey with me, Clare Dubois, we will bring awareness and increased flow into the areas of health, wealth, beauty and power, through full bodied experiential, meditative processes. Each journey builds upon the last.
This journey is a deep drop into the potency of collective focus and allowing for the more that we become together, to unleash and unlock all that we are as women and as forces of Nature.
With love, Clare
In this introductory event, we explore River as metaphor for our own vital life force and capacity to love. We discover how the water within a river represents the receptive, responsive feminine principle and the river bed and banks as the holding, containing and directing masculine principle – the reality that both are needed in balance to be in wholeness and health.
Clare founded TreeSisters after 20 years of individual and group facilitation working with consciousness, change processes and the liberation of what is possible in every human being.
Clare is leading the TreeSisters campaign; focusing on network development and the empowerment of women. She has been developing the ethos and principles, the team and organisational culture, the campaign strategy, the framework of the Maps and behaviour change materials. She is committed to the creation of an evolving system that learns as it goes and continually models itself upon the flows and forms of living systems.
When women gather, something else becomes possible.
Ours is a different kind of power,
a different kind of responsiveness, receptivity, subtlety and co-creativity.
We need to gather, to inspire and encourage each other,
because it’s time for a different relationship with life on this planet of ours.
In ‘The River of Health’ Clare will guide you in an embodied journey back into the natural river of your life force and love. You will then dive into an exploration of your own vitality, sensuality and pleasure seeking the areas that you may have consciously or unconsciously cut off our own flow.
This meditative journey is about opening and softening – feeling for the limitations – and allowing our flow to dismantle all that is ready to be alchemized and released.
This is a tool that you can use again and again in your own healing back to wholeness – a loving, relaxing and illuminating journey into deeper relationship with yourself and your own vital life force as teacher and wellspring of health.
What if I said yes to the moon?
What if I let my calendar mind fall quiet and forget –
Let that incessant load of lists get parked
by the side of the road
That I used to follow
when I thought I knew who I was
when I thought I knew what I was
What if I fell still enough to hear the tides
The ones that rise and fall me
The ones that deeply inform me
The ones that guide and nourish me
That teach me who I am
When I let myself soften enough
To be carried inside
Carried and watered by the nature that lives me
When I do, will it show when you see me?
When I step out of time, out of line
Back into the full circle
Back into the river of life
That shows me who I am
So that now, I make sense to myself
So that now, I reclaim myself
And so it is
Rediscovered as woman
Amazed, inspired and captivated
Infused by that deeper flow that knows
Making sense to myself as the seasons unfold
I am home
Home on the inside in a life that is mine
Home in a mystery that makes sense to my soul
Back, on the throne of woman.
In this second session, we will soften into The River of Wealth and our relationship to abundance and our capacity to let ourselves receive..
Starting again by surrendering into the river of our own life force and love as a place of fullness and infinite capacity – we will invite the deeper patterns that exist within our relationship to lack and plenty in all areas of abundance to show up in our rivers so that we can explore where and how we have cut ourselves off. There is a cultural, conditioned and adopted set of stains that the Feminine has inherited that are no longer relevant or appropriate for any levels of our psyche, and as such we will be exploring this both personally and collectively – as we move to dismantle, dissolve and transmute what is ready to go, with awareness and love.
This will be a nurturing, relaxing, illuminating journey of healing and expansion for all of us.
Let the birds take your clothes
Let the waves undo your holding back
Let the vines unravel your tired mind
And the earth savour your sweat and tears.
Let your stories burn off like rising mist,
As your past and the false floors of curbed self love
Dissolve into butterfly wings and fire flies
As your edges blur and your Planetary Self ignites.
Let the trees bathe your breath
Let the meadows embrace you
Let the mountains and the bees remind you
Let the sky flood in and allow the clouds to guide you.
From Your Planetary Self, by Clare Dubois
The rivers of Health and Wealth have amplified our visibility in the world and our capacity to radiate light. Now we dive into the River of Beauty.
Our relationship with beauty can be fraught with issues that reflect a disconnection from who we really are, and the brilliance that lives us. This journey will be into a personal exploration of how we hold our capacity to shine, to transmit love through our bodies and faces, to accept ourselves as we are in physical form, to redefine our own experience of beauty according to our own felt sense of love and sacredness as an embodiment of the divine feminine.
We will start by stepping back into the river of our own life force and love as a place of fullness and infinite capacity – then invite the less conscious patterns that block our shining or self acceptance to arise into conscious awareness as the dams in our river that we can attend to – lovingly and compassionately. We are not trying to break through or force any change here – we are simply allowing the power of our shared consciousness to shine light on that that is ready to be released, to simply wash away and liberate the life force that can serve our beauty into its true expression.
We are calling the Grandmothers, Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Daughters
The wild women
The seers and midwives
The mountain and desert women
The soul summoners
The water carriers
The tenders and feelers of Earth
The ocean women who are rising the tide
The fire women who are ready to roar
The girls who already breathe consciously with the trees
and the Elders who choose to sing the song that ends the desecration of our world –
We are calling you to to rise together now –
You are invited – to unite and awaken to who and what you really are,
on behalf of the forests, on behalf of the trees, on behalf of Life.
With the Rivers of Health, Wealth and Beauty flowing more fully it is time to step into the most glorious River of all – The River of Power.
It is a wild thing to even write those words or wonder what they mean to each of us. In this moment, ‘Power’ refers to the vast intelligence of nature that surrounds us – that can infuse us fully if we can drop our separation and merge with life – the feeling of unlimited love, capacity, belonging, wildness and wisdom that can pulse through every cell of our bodies when we get our minds out of the way and open to who and what we really are as aspects of this natural world.
We will start with a deeper exploration of how we relate to power. Then, as we have in all the River Series calls – dropping into and surrendering to The River of our own love and soul before investigating our River of Power and discovering how to move through anything that holds us back. We will tap back into our birthright of full throttle vibrancy, as gateways for more intelligence than we have conceived ourselves to be…
This call will be a tool that you can use again and again as you drop through the veils back to yourself.
Thank you so much for taking this journey of self exploration.
We hope it has woven you into deeper connection with yourself, with your sisters and with the natural world that lives and breathes us all.
If you’d like to continue the journey, we invite you to join our circle of global sisterhood live each Full Moon. Our moon calls are an invitation to embody all that you are as a woman of the Earth. Gather with our global circle of sisterhood each full moon to relax into nurturing Nature connection together. Come join us…
