STEP 1: SISTERING

The core foundation listening practice within our Groves. A simple and profound practice of deep listening that supports a return to our innate wholeness as women.

STEP 2: NATURING

Body and nature based meditations that will weave us into the greater field of nature’s intelligence.

NB: Grove Tenders, please make sure to listen to the recording before you gather with your Grove, so that you know when to introduce the question for the third stage of this practice.

Below are a selection of meditations that you can use. How often you decide to incorporate these meditations is up to you. You can choose to use the same one each time, or you can use different ones.

Option #1: Connecting with the Sky

Option #2: Being With Nature

Option #3: Nourished by Nature

STEP 3: SHARING

Each woman is invited to learn how to share from a place of deep connection to her nature self while feeling held by the support of her sisters. Possible enquiry questions for third stage of The Unfurling, flowing from Winter:

WINTER

How best can I drop into rest?
What still needs incubating in me?
What in me is no longer ready to stay in the shadows?

SPRING

What parts of me are calling for balance?
What new element of me do I dare to birth now?
What do I most intimately desire?

SUMMER

What within me is ready for more light and presence?
In what ways do I long to connect?
What within me is longing to be celebrated?

FALL

What inner gifts of sustenance am I harvesting?
What in me resists slowing down?
What in me is longing to move towards the darkness
