The Ways We Connect – Spring Gathering for Women.

A space for women to drop into self and return to their connection to the Earth. We gather to share in circle the ways we connect to nature as women. Our focus for this spring gathering is fostering growth and acknowledging the current climate of the Earth. How can we as women be stewards, to create nurturing change.

We meet at a time of immense change and impact, with a changing climate and environment. Many women are feeling this, we feel nature... it has been our role as women for many thousands of years. From this place of feeling and sharing together, we can create empathy based action within our community.

I also acknowledge the need for the nurturing of self and the importance of deep feeling and supportive spaces. So let’s sit together and explore our individual and collective journey as a woman of the Earth, living in the current climate.

The event includes:

Meditation - slowing down, turning our gaze inward and feeling connection to the land

Story - Inspiring sharing of the felt experience of connection to the natural world by Karla. She will also share her experience of listening to Indigenous story and how this has changed her relationship with nature.

The Collective Story - in circle we share personal stories of connection. We also explore the ways we as women can become caretakers and a voice for the land.

A women's only space. This event is open to all women, with the option of donation. Please do book, even if you are coming by donation.

Thank you.

The Vision
This space brings women together to deepen connection to the land. Together we create a gentle and safe space to share authentically. We gather seasonally

Who is behind this event?
Hi, my name is Karla. I like to start by stating: "I am not Indigenous to this land, but I do belong to the Earth."

I have dedicated my life to connecting people to nature and Indigenous culture. This is no easy attempt, I come face-to-face with my own colonisation, and feel my feminine and indigeneity constantly under threat from modernisation.

As I sit with the uncomfortable reality of the history of this nation and the path of destruction and disconnection it has left, I constantly ask myself: how can I respond, what is my responsibility? I go into nature, as a daily practice and I listen and the more I do that, the more I hear and the more I connect to all things living. This allows me to cultivate my connection to the land and to my wild self, as a part of nature.

Practicals

What to bring:
- All of you
- A cushion for your comfort—we will sit on the ground (with the land)

Start time is 3pm. Please arrive at CERES early to give yourself time to find us!

If you are unable to pay we welcome your attendance by donation on the door. Please ensure you book (free of charge), via the booking link.

I acknowledge this gathering is on the lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. I give my gratitude for the custodians who have taken care of these lands. May we respect and honour all Indigenous of this land, and acknowledge the 100,000 year old living culture and connection they maintain.

What I offer, it’s related…

I run women’s gatherings in remote Australia, with indigenous elders. There are three aspects of connection in what I offer, direct connection with Indigenous women, connecting to nature through immersion and coming together as women to share and let rise our innate wisdom...as I would say, connecting to our wisdom as women.
