Open Your Heart To The World

Creating Sacred Space Together

As these times call us to deepen our roots in home and open our hearts to the world, we feel called to offer an opportunity to be together in somatic and spiritual resonance.

We meet on Zoom and take a moment to create sacred space together. After a brief check-in to include everyone in the circle, we explore a somatic practice based in the wisdom of Nature. Deep embodied awareness practices can bring us into somatic resonance with one and other, as our nervous systems align for a moment of re-calibration.

We meet on Wednesdays in a midweek – liminal time, which mirrors this liminal place we are all in – neither here nor there, betwixt and between, in a slow and significant transition together as one humanity.

Throughout history all species go through times of fragility and are faced with threats to their very survival. Humans, as we are experiencing now, are not immune to this. We can call upon the wisdom of nature and her consorts – the elemental forces of all life as allies and healers – perhaps we will then begin to recognize them as kin again, rather than “resources” to exploit.

These are potent times for being together!!

Wednesdays 4:00 – 4:30 pm  FREE or by donation

Guest Facilitator

I have been walking alongside the spirits of my ancestors and the spirits of the land since the mid 1990’s when an experience with ancient earth-based practices resonated as a home place for me. Following the Celtic wheel of the year grounds me in my relationship to the cycles of nature and wisdom ways of the more than human. I am a queer aging woman with a passion for the earth and all her beings. Among the things I hold dear are organic food, farmers and farming, body centred healing arts, community co-creation, ritual and ceremony, music and the written word. In striving to reduce my impact on the earth, I have reduced my material possessions to what will fit in my tiny home on wheels in which I live, write poetry and make textile art beside a meadow on the Southern part of Salt Spring Island, unceded ancestral territory of the Hul’q’umi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking people, of the Quw’utsun First Nation.

I have lived all over the country in my fifty six years here. I am particularly grateful for the years I spent in the North where I was privileged to witness the courage of the indigenous community in mounting some of the first land claims in Canada. Since then my decolonizing process has led me down many paths of connection and healing through sweat lodges, healing circles and medicine wheel ceremonies. Among my teachers and influencers are Starhawk, Joanna Macy, Aline LaFlamme, and Robin Wall Kimmerer. I am grateful beyond words for all the friendships and communities that have been part of my life.

I am grateful and blessed to live on S,ḴŦAK, now known as “Mayne Island” which is an ancestral and unceded gathering place of many Coast Salish peoples. The Tsartlip band, of the W̱SÁNEĆ Nation, continues to have an especially close ongoing relationship here.  A lifelong learner, I have taken a deep dive in studying & practicing embodiment theory & techniques ~ personally (starting with dance) in the 1980’s, and professionally for more than 20 years. Through the business I created, Meadow Dove Wellness, the primary modalities I enthusiastically employ to help people reconnect with their wholeness and live authentically are: BodyMind Coaching, Massage Therapy, and Yoga (as well as so much more!). I love to work with a limited number of people to maintain an exceptionally high quality of care.

I am in awe of the innate healing capabilities of the body (as well as the Earth), and aim to create a supportive environment for the magic to unfold. Connecting with and exploring the inner landscape ~ through which we can explore our connection with the Bigger Picture, aka the Universe ~ and offering compassionate presence for that which is calling for attention to be witnessed, acknowledged, and integrated. I believe there is a connection between how we care for ourselves, each other, and the planet. I bring curiosity, an open mind and heart, to every interaction. Peace begins within. Awareness is the first step.
