It seems that people are grieving for something deeper, actually...with or without awareness.
Emma Macaillen

The heart of addiction, stuff, doing, distractions!

A good story needs repeating.
Mary Green

Aimee Moffitt-Mercer

Absolutely a beautiful bird, no doubt.
Jacqui Deveneau
01:00:21
Thank you
Pamela Whyte
01:00:33
beautiful
Martin Levin
01:00:42
Beautiful!! Can you share that so we may read it and share it with others?
Katia Ancona
01:00:43
Heather, Is there a way we could have a copy of that conversation, so that we can keep it up front and center in our hearts and mind?
Kristen Sheppard
01:00:54
That was beautiful thank you

01:00:59

01:01:22

Monika Burkholder
01:01:44
Thank you, that resonated so deeply
Kathleen Allen
01:02:00
... likewise ...
MM
01:02:32
I am feeling the love of the earth and the trees lately. It is a powerful energy as I am able to feel it with less other people around.
MM
01:02:59
Thank you Heather for crystallizing this!
Sarah Barnard
01:04:14
thank you for letter to Mother Earth
Steph Kent
01:04:46
Your Grandmother was probably pleased to be able to make you hot cereal one last time
MM
01:07:17
Exactly, Steph Kent!
Eli Mutino
01:09:38
And trans people for the myriad of roles they play in this work
Chris Buchanan
01:09:45
I believe all people regardless of gender might bring forward their inner femininity
MM
01:10:35
Agreed! It’s about receptive and active energy regardless of gender identity. :)
Audrey Gidman
01:10:39
I definitely think it's important to consider the roles that queer/trans/non-binary/two spirit folks have in bringing balance
MM
01:12:55
Women can also promote toxic masculinity as well unfortunately
Suzanne Huffman
01:13:26
I came to this meeting tonight with my heart heavy because of the rate of deaths in nursinghomes. Mainstream white society is not caring for our own mothers and grndmothers, but turning them over to corporate nursing homes! How can people love mother earth when we don't love our human mothers?
Jacque Salomon
01:13:55
My mother embodied toxic masculinity and it affected us children profoundly.
Sarah Barnard
01:14:58
the model of marketing and patriarchy is to feed on our fears
Sarah Barnard
01:17:33
this deprivation model reproduces in every field. We need a net that is fine enough to identify the way the patriarch and power disenfranchise us from our self...cannot dis men but the yang masculinity unhinged from feminine receptivity
MM
01:18:12
Suzanne, this is an incredibly heartbreaking reality right now. But I would not underestimate the loving maternal energy and care that nurses, CNA’s and health care providers are giving to patients right now and connecting them to family as they can, through video or limited visitors at the last hours.
Suzanne Huffman
01:19:01
In many cases, yes, but there is no need for the majority of elders to die in institutions.
Suzanne Huffman
01:20:43
Most elders can age in place and continue to contribute to their communities with appropriate supports.
NANCY Goodman
01:22:43
I canceled my cable 6 months ago, no smart phone, no media, none of the craziness. It was and is liberating to not buy into it all. I go to nature and connect fully.
Cary Hayes
01:23:12
Children have so much to teach us!
joan maccracken
01:23:27
you Sherri deserve that
jessie dawn
01:24:59
Suzannne, Yes! We can also care for our disabled family members! I took my brother out of a home and he is so much happier and healthier now. Institutions leave little room for life and spontaneity. They leave little space for non-pharmaceutical healing. I work in a home and try to bring as much love and life to the place, but it is hard. So many barriers to work within.
Suzanne Huffman
01:25:21
Jesse Dawn, yes!!!
Gia Neswald
01:25:38
That self-care for yourself, Sherri, benefits us all because you give so much. If I were being self-loving, I could say the same for myself, as could all of us, I see.
Constance Nyman
01:26:06
Suzanne, Aging in place is not the joy that it seems - it can be very lonely and sometime impossible when services are not available.
Suzanne Huffman
01:27:08
Constance that's why we all need to care!
Liza Rankow

Audrey Gidman
01:28:29
Sending you resilience, love and strength, Sarah xx

I am currently working with two collective intelligence communities working collaboratively to launch imminent actions to eradicate hunger and future pandemics.
Kristen Sheppard

Jake I work with youth too ( currently in a school setting, but remotely) and have also found that they do like mindfulness and find the benefits of it
Jake Kulaw
