Feminine Leadership in Philanthropy Online Event

This dream that is ours

This dream that the world can wake up to itself

Through rapturous respect and radical reverence

This yearning for love

This unfurling request for tender living

This is not too much to ask

For this is the way of our soul when we let the sunlight ripple in our mind

And the breezes teach us how to touch

When we let the gaze of the deer fall softly into our eyes

And the salmons steady returning remind us how to bow to our own beginnings

When the forest floor finally shows us how to share

And the steady patience of the trees seeps into the curve of our own spines

We shall fall softly into the dance

And the steady patience of the trees seeps into the curve of our own spines

Of our own becoming

And recognize ourselves in all things living

But first we must bow

And allow

The remembering

That paves the path home

To reverence

Welcome

Stepping into authentic feminine leadership

Each day in the TreeSisters team we ask ourselves, “What is authentic feminine leadership?” At this critical time when our environment is being so challenged by political unrest, we’re passionately exploring the leading edge of our feminine leadership and how it’s changing our relationship with the planet.

In this recent event, we explored these questions; “What is nature-based feminine philanthropy? How are we each living and breathing it? And how can our giving enhance our connection with the natural world we love?”

Join our Founder Clare Dubois, CEO Amrita Khalsa, Communications Director Sophie Jane Mortimer, and Philanthropy Advisor Alyssa Wright for this recorded video event.

What is feminine philanthropy?

~ Feminine philanthropy rejoices whether one gives $10 or $10 million, knowing that we are all deserving of the opportunity to love humanity with our unique gifts.

~ Feminine philanthropy embraces each and every one of us as a powerful change agent in creating the future we all want for the next generations.

~ Feminine philanthropy seeks to design systems and structures that bring us back into balance as the great alchemists of our times.

At this critical time when our environment is being so challenged by political unrest we’re passionately exploring the leading edge of our feminine leadership and how it’s changing our relationship with the planet.

Here are some of the offerings from those who were live with us in the circle:

~ “What I saw and felt was like finding a secret opening to a vast realm of possibility that has been hidden for a very long time.”

~ “In giving to that which we deeply care about, we expand. We connect. We love.”

~ “We are all philanthropists – our generosity becomes a portal to a sense of belonging.”

 

Go deeper

Deepen this Exploration…

If you’d like to continue your exploration of nature-based feminine leadership, we invite you to dive into our Feminine Philanthropy worksheet, which explores questions such as:

Your own nature based feminine philanthropy will be unique to you. It may still feel mysterious and unformed. If you imagine creating one practice that could strengthen your connection to your own feminine knowing, intimacy with nature and innate generosity what might that be?

If you weigh up what we’re facing ecologically with the feelings that inhibit your giving, is there a way in which standing in sisterhood with other philanthropists could feel supportive?Is there any level of reallocation of your giving that could create a strengthening towards that which you love?

Take a Stand for Life…

There is a way of feeling empowered in the face of climate change – we believe it is taking action that makes sense in relationship to life, to our hearts, to our vision for the future.

We are building a circle of sacred stewardship this year, creating a global community of strategic, feminine philanthropists. Could you see yourself amongst these individuals stewarding the next chapter of TreeSisters, for women and the earth?
