Advocacy for Women’s Sexual Sovereignty is Advocacy for Earth

Advocacy for Women’s Sexual Sovereignty is Advocacy for Earth

  For humans who live and experience life through an Indigenous worldview, it is not a metaphor that Earth is our mother. When humans live on the earth and see her as an object- inanimate, without spirit, feeling, or soul then they can rationalize doing any number of atrocities to her including mining (rape), exploitation, contamination, abuse, and even murder - murder of her life giving ways. We have seen these acts perpetrated in many of the most Indo-European, patriarchal societies. Today, within our “modern” lives we experience a total lack of regard for what is sacred particularly regarding the sovereign rights of Earth and  her daughters. 

 Wherever Earth is objectified so too are women. It is no coincidence that from the beginning of this Indo-European way of materialistic life the atrocities which Indigenous women across all continents have faced, and which they continue to face, make us the most at risk for sexual and reproductive trauma group of humans still today.

  In this way advocating for the sacred sexual healing, reproductive rights, and sovereignty of females is the same as pro-Earth environmental activism. Not in an abstract way - protecting and healing a water carrying womb is the same as protecting a natural body of water. Both give life and must be healthy and respected in order for future generations of humans to continue existing.

 Advocacy comes in many forms but largely stems from a deep care and commitment to what is meaningful and sacred in life. To advocate for, means, to plead on the behalf of, or to support, or to protect.
  Since the beginning it has largely been indigenous nations who have advocated for the well-being of Earth while simultaneously holding women and their life-giving force and  their sensuality as very sacred, and as needing to be protected and supported. Over 98% of the worlds remaining natural habitats only survive today because of the Indigenous nations whichever steward them.

  Some would say, that the overpopulation myth which has led to the forced sterilization and genocide of entire Indigenous Nations of people was and is fueled solely by the greed of those who know that as long as indigenous people remain in that part of the Earth  they would continue to advocate for her, protect her, and support her. Today, advocacy can look like projects taking place within or without the predominant system, but which always result in the protection, regeneration, and healing of Earth and all of her children. 

 This inherent knowledge has brought us to offer our advocacy certification trainings for those who wish to serve as advocates for survivors of sexual and reproductive trauma. As a holistic practitioner, Earth activist, well being practitioner, sensual being and human being of any kind it is imperative to address the pervasive issue of the objectification of women and Earth. To advocate for one is to advocate for the other.…  it is impossible to heal one and not the other.

What is Mental/Emotional Wellness in this Modern World?
What is Mental/Emotional Wellness in this Modern World?

May 18, 2023

 One of the key elements which can be found in all of these promising healing modalities - from traditional shamanic healing, to clinical EMDR sessions, to somatic experiencing therapies - is the repetition of whole and fulfilling practices combined with accelerators. Many of the most exciting new projects supporting mental health do just that. 

   An exciting development in the front line in supporting mental health combines our pervasive use of technology with holistic therapies that have been shown to forge and fortify new pathways in our brains —> making way for recalling ancestral wisdom and having the mental / emotional bandwidth to hear the call back to Earth. Newly launched, Medicinal Media is providing exciting steps on finding our ways back to fulfillment and mental health rather than numbing to cope. It was founded partially by the LALA - or Dr. Lisa Michelle Wilson - Foundation, and is yet another example of humanity finding ways back to Earth.
