If we valued and lived the feminine aspect of of ourselves...would that bring balance back to life?

Background

Most people would agree that our culture is hardly nourishing. We are busy people… looking externally for meaning in what we own or what we do. We rush from experience to experience hoping to get a sense of communion, but it never seems to last.

It seems we have forgotten about the sacred, forgotten the importance of listening and to value the qualities of compassion, gratitude, generosity and acceptance which are feminine capacities —things that come from the inner aspect of life, our relationship to Self— which provide connection, sustenance and meaning. This disconnection has had a great impact on us all and is reflected in the way we treat each other, the earth and other beings.

Why am I doing this?
I felt deeply compelled to understand the root of this problem --something that was BOTH inside of me and also reflected in the culture -- so I could somehow help restore balance to life.  There are many dedicated people trying to fix the problems externally, but it was clear to me the best place for me to start was inside myself because I am the problem, the microcosm of the macrocosm.  So I set out on a journey to experience, reclaim, value and live the feminine aspect of being human and make this film in the process.

I ask questions of some very wise people to discover what the feminine really is and get a sense of how they live the feminine in proper relationship to their masculine. They graciously provide insight and wise words about the human journey toward wholeness.

Intention. This project intends to empower and inspire people to connect to and live from their deepest knowing, a process that I believe is important for the survival of our planet.

What you will be supporting. We have already shot most of the film but your participation would support post-production – editing, creation of an original soundtrack, shooting of imagery footage and include many more interview outtakes on the website. In addition, we could enter it into more film festivals and host a launch event...Yes, all that! And it is tax deductible too...


Our gifts to you
One of the gifts we are offering is both something for you and something for the future -- a variety of organic heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company. These seeds are open-pollinated for genetic diversity and greater food source stability. You can enjoy the flowers and the veggies and support seed robustness and a healthy eco-system as well! We also have a many other offerings including a book called "The Return of the Feminine and the World Soul", by Sufi teacher and author Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee.

Please consider supporting this project for it shines the light on an issue that underpins our social and environmental problems and shows us that the path to a balanced future is something to be discovered within….

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
