I believe you will find it a compelling reminder of why this event touched our hearts so deeply. Much of the work we are now engaged in took root at the Women’s Congress and is now bearing fruit! Thank YOU!
This fall we have two special events in the Twin Cities. Read on to learn more about these two exciting gatherings!
Thank you for your camaraderie over the winter to allow for the fallow time that is so necessary when doing this important work. One of the gifts of the Feminine in each of us is the reminder that we must honor the need for deep inner work or the fruit of our work will not mature and be full of flavor!
May each of you find your place in the movement that is nothing less than an ‘all hands on deck’ moment. Together we are powerful beyond measure.

At a gathering on May 21st, Carolyn shared the Legal Principles for Mining, Fracking, and Pipelines to an audience of over 150 people and received a standing ovation. Attendees asked valuable questions, many of which will guide this workshop. It’s clear there is a deep hunger for opening new spaces for our work, for aligning the law with justice. At the 2014 Congress, we rediscovered the power of moral clarity – now it’s up to us to do the hard yet rewarding work of putting that into action! To be effective, the 'hows' must be on the edge of the unknown, as we learn to live with uncertainty. Our work includes becoming keen observers of what works, what doesn’t and adjusting our strategies accordingly.
This workshop will explore the concepts in the Companion for Political Change and Legal Principles, including:
The Importance of the Commons
Free, Prior and Informed Consent – and how to withdraw consent!
Public Trust theory of Government
Guardianship of Future Generations
We'll also deep dive into the 'how to's' of applying these ideas, which can only be sourced from each other's unique experience and wisdom. As the dark-seeing owl says: Power is in communion.
