Ruffled Feathers is an online program for women who utilize movement, art, and earth-based practices as tools to gather wisdom that is intrinsically linked to women's bodies and healing abilities. In this circle, our paths may be unique, but our shared intention to thrive brings us validation and support. Together we will co-create structures that support biocultural regeneration, healing, and the mutual liberation of people and the planet.
This special and powerful gathering of women is inspired by a rhizome, a tuber or stem continuously growing underground. From this stem, many roots emerge and reach deep into the earth.
Why Ruffled Feathers?As women we are often discouraged from causing a commotion, standing out, or taking a stand. When we do we may be called angry, a label frequently applied to Black women who share their voice. I decided to embrace and embed this phrase with the energy of women who are ready to co-create a society that is supportive of women and the earth.
Materials: Access to computer and internet is suggested so you can immerse yourself in our online space. Open heart and mind. All bodies accepted! Your physical body may or may not move in the ways you envision are best for you in this lifetime. Please know that we support you and welcome you as you are. Feel free to share any additional questions or concerns with me.
For many women, our beliefs are very much intertwined with our physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental wellbeing. We hold the copper threads of healing life force in our hands and can work together to design a life that is regenerative and affirming. In our return to women-centered ways of knowing. We mobilize in ways that create long lasting change and transformation. Connecting with the earth and our sisters can realign the universe. - Mandisa
