Women are once again honouring the seasons and cycles of nature, as did our ancestors from all corners of the globe. The return to a consciousness where Mother Nature is revered and celebrated evolved out of the ecology and early Goddess movement of the late 1960’s and 1970’s.
All life emerges from darkness into light and returns again into darkness. The ancient metaphor of the Goddess birthing all things from the darkness of Her cosmic womb is present within the life cycle of all living things.
As we live our life cycle around the Wheel of the year, moving through the changing seasons of the Earth. Each seasonal transition can initiate a unique understanding of the Goddess, and of its correlation to the cycles of women’s lives. Through this connection and the natural cycles of the Earth, Sun, Moon and stars, we deepen in our understanding of life Herself. If you pay close attention and observe how the body of the Earth is transforming throughout the year, She will speak to you as She did to our ancestors and can guide you toward what kind of rituals to create and celebrate.
This statement is TENT’s foundation..
How do we effect a change in the world and in our personal lives? There is the outer path of purposeful, outgoing action to change our external circumstances. Goal orientated, externally directed purpose focuses on “taking aim and shooting the arrow at the target. There is also an inner path; a state of oneness.
When the inner being is aligned with purpose, inTENTtion becomes manifest in action. The arrow lifts off and finds its way to the goal, creating external changes. InTENTion affects perception, and it affects molecules. We know from recent experiments that loving thoughts can re-configure the crystalline structure of water! Prayer, affirmation, thought forms, shape the world we live in on all levels from material to Spirit realms. When purpose action and Spirit guided inTENTion are hitched up together, both personal journey and global direction can be profoundly altered.
"Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong."-
