This ‘Weave’ is a visionary statement woven together using the words and phrases spoken by Council members during live sessions.
We believe in creating a world of true Sovereignty for every living being. Sexual freedom is one part of this. Liberation of the body and spirit.
We are awakening to a deep Remembrance. Remembering the interconnectedness and interdependence of life. We create our reality.
We are in service to a world that honors life as sacred and spirit manifest.. We have the power to create our world. It begins with our Flesh and Bones.
The Art of Love
Relationships are intrinsic to our Life on Earth. By teaching our children to honor, care for and respect themselves and others, we create a world of harmony. Our world teaches Devotional Love. We are fully alive and ecstatic in our bodies. We experience vitality and health. Awakened in our bodies, we access our highest creative potential. Every human being thrives on love, connection and support.
Pleasure is our Birthright. Our pleasure is Holy. We access the Divine through our bodies. We share this with others.
We see a world where every child born is wanted, cherished and cared for. Children consciously conceived with love grow up with self esteem, knowing they are deserving of love, affection and healthy relationships. We delight in being adored. We go out into the world adoring others.
We practice nurturance and care within the family system. Families touch, hug and show affection with each other. We are fulfilled and nourished with touch and love. We know how to honor our bodies and sexuality. We understand the joy and responsibility of intimacy with others. We respect others and our relationships.
Rites of Passage
Families and communities come together to celebrate life with Rites of Passage. As children come of age, they are welcomed into adulthood. Young women and men are taught the sacredness of their body, the bliss and responsibilities of creating life and loving others. They are witnessed in the holding of this passage and the wisdom it brings. These young adults are held with support, reverence and honor. Menses and Nocturnal Emission are moments of celebration as it represents fertility and the continuation of life and the family lineage.
We acknowledge all of the stages of Life. Birth, Coming of Age, Sacred Union/Marriage and Death.
Love elders share the delights of pleasure and intimacy and teach Art of Love in schools and programs. We are taught how to communicate our needs and desires. We are taught the difference between sexuality for procreation and sexuality for pleasure and bonding. Pleasure is healing, enlivening and awakening. We are taught the practice of dedicating our pleasure and lovemaking to a higher purpose. Sexuality shared through Soul love births new frequencies in the physical world.
We have practices and rituals of honoring, caring for and nourishing the body and the stages of our lives. We have Red Tents. We have Yoni Baths. Bathing and grooming are rituals that enhance self esteem, pleasure and can build community. We share, teach and partake in transformational practices.
We are creating a world that honors the Body, Relationships and all of Life.
