...it takes a village
The Temple of Belonging is a co-creative remembrance of what it could feel like if we return to the bright, deep, and fertile reality of women centered relationship and communing. We honor the ancient songs of the land we gather with, as well as dream a new reality of living in harmony with the ancient and emergent ways. We honor all stages of life; child, maiden, mother, crone, ancestral, to be welcome and fully alive here with us over the course of these 3 days. Welcome, kin. Your participation here is planting the seed for a new future of collaboration for womanhood and the generative power of feminine vitality!
The nature of belonging...
We know the bravery to call this gathering "the temple of belonging" and yet, are devout in learning what She is here to teach us all. This gathering is an invitation, it's an initiation, and it's a remembering of the sacred union of our personal and collective responsibility to continue to feed and nurture a present and future that values the felt sense of belonging, and can stay curious about it's complex and challenging nature.
Belonging has many definitions, and here we seek not to have you each agree to our definition, but come into even deeper intimacy with the way it moves and lives and breathes within you. And during this gathering, we seek to promote freedom and honesty and intimacy as we co-create that which we long for most: meaningful, empowering, and nourishing connection.. to self, to sister, and to source.
So please come with an open heart, a kind mind, and a willingness to welcome this experience as an extension of your own understanding and participation in this web of reality that we all share.
You are loved, valued, and welcome here, as you are.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful time with us to return to Belonging in the ways that we know how.
With love, the T.O.B crew and kin.
