"Despite the assumptions of physical force, the Mother has a sacred and commanding word to say to the sons who owe their life to her suffering. That word should now be heard, and answered to as never before. Arise, then, women of this day!" Mother's Day Proclamation by Julia Ward Howe.
Women around the world are being called to rise. Have YOU heard the call? Have you answered? Are you ready to drop your resistance to being the brightest, fiercest woman you can be and join the feminine force that is engaging courage and love in the public sphere on the behalf of the healing of the planet?
Join us as we reclaim Mother's Day at EarthTeach www.earthteach.org on Sunday, May 13, 9:00-11:00 am. EarthTeach is near the 9 mile marker of Dead Indian Memorial Road, Ashland, OR. This event is free and open to the public. Love offerings deeply appreciated!
The time has come to make a promise to ourselves, our children, and all sentient beings that the zero sum game we have been playing with people and politics and the planet itself is a game that ends today. Join us as we reclaim the original purpose of Mother's Day and learn how YOU can work for peace in the world. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need boots AND wings!
