The Campaign
On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.
On 14 February 2014*, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!

ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

Our stories have been buried, denied, erased, altered, and minimized by patriarchal systems that allow impunity to reign. Justice begins when we speak, release, and acknowledge the truth in solidarity and community. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage, and bondage.

The campaign is a recognition that we cannot end violence against women without looking at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Impunity lives at the heart of these interlocking forces.

It is a call to bring on revolutionary justice.

Begin to imagine what Rising for Justice looks like for you, your community, your city, your country.

*Attention Canadian Activists
In Canada the Annual Women’s Memorial March for The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, which has been taking place for twenty two years, is held every February 14th to honor and grieve for the thousands of women who are still missing or who have been murdered. We deeply respect the Women’s Memorial Marches and are asking all of our One Billion Rising Canada organizers to NOT DO their Rising events on February 14th. Instead we are asking you to hold your One Billion Rising events on March 8th, International Women’s Day. Please visit http://www.womensmemorialmarch.wordpress.com to learn more about the Women’s Memorial Marches.

lanterns along your spine…

lanterns along your spine...

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise,

and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh

and light lanterns along your spine

so you know that there’s nothing but light

when I see you.

To amplify the message of self love this February, we are calling in a circle of Love Ambassadors who dare to share the message of love (especially self-love) this February.

TOGETHER, we can inspire millions of people to choose self-love – you know self-compassion, care, esteem, empowerment, and pleasure over FEAR, SHAME, GUILT, OBLIGATION and all that other stuff that drives us to make choices and take thoughts that are not self-loving.

And we know that there is NOTHING more powerful, more beautiful, or more free than a person who chooses to LOVE themselves.

Self-love is the foundation of everything. Are you willing to become your own best friend, and be that best friend no matter what? Are you willing to believe together, we can create a world in which EVERY child born – including the child in you – can be born connected to love and stay connected to that love?

We can not do this alone. We need you!

Arrow II

Arrow II

Today, Arrow died.

He was our guardian wolf dog, cross husky hound with German Shepherd blood. One blue eye, one brown.

The warrior at our gates.´¨)¸.•´¸.•´¨) ¸.•¨)
(¸.•´ (¸.•`

He was a young male, devoted and attuned – ever willing, curious, dedicated – deliberate with his interest and perpetual as loyal.

It was unexpected – he swerved beneath the car’s back tyres and the driver never saw it come.

He and Lola, our female husky, were running beside the road to wave the children goodbye on their way to school. (He always did want to come – wherever – too).

Apparently he instantaneously died. Just ran out from behind the car, hobbled on one paw, then lay down and departed.

No sound, no screech, no surrender – just quietly put down his life.

Carried to a better grave, by the men in our community – aside the young ones, sad in heart.

We laid him to rest alongside the Venus Room, so named our Hall venue, gathering place for ceremonial events and communal times.

Together we offered gratitude and blessings for the value of Arrow’s life, and the welcome of his Spirit as a Guardian now in thresholds beyond.

To those who stood alongside, who shared this transition – thank you for your care.

To my family, and friends, and community – broader than the dimensions of one, lone life… Ndiyabulela (“my deepest gratitude”) for the honoring of what was, and sacred holding that remains.

Our container in this instance, the grave. United through his death…

We stood in silence, and mirth… in circle, laughing as we remembered the fun times together with this faithful companion.

And then, bearing witness to the cold, stone dead body – wrapped in blankets, leaves and treasures – beside him in his grave…

Arrow wrapped in silvery, pink, flimsy ribbons, lovingly placed with streamers to honor his Time; even a panty, from the little girl’s basket, which Arrow loved to sneak off with and chew on as a pup!

Herbs, branches, crystals, smoke and salt…

The picture grows full in the immensity of our love…

A clear, calcite sphere to embody the release with our conscious embodiment, him facing the Mountains, North and gazing far beyond…

Present time – breathing the fullness – ebb and flow – serene and soft… tears welled, and truths now spoken…

We hold what remains in our hearts.

Ever onward, this sometimes clumsy and awkward, lesson-filled journey, this Life. Death, a part of it all.

#Cherish the moment, relish in the sanctuary of friendships, of love resident within the spaces of it All.

While this ceremony ended, the Medicine Wheel remains – strong and steadfast… Arrow’s drinking vessel placed at the centre of it all.

As the rains fall, so will we harvest the waters and share in our remembrance, this new garden, planted amidst the seasons and cycles of dear Arrow’s short-spanned life.

Always, in gratitude, with blessing, and accepting Grace at the Eye of the Storm…

Arrow… we thank you for all the good times, and the trying ones, too.

…For etching your signature onto the legs of the benches, and into our baskets, and cultivated garden soils.

…Your wide smile and fierce heart live on in our memories.

We love you – Sweet Dreams Beloved Companion – now in the Beyond.

Rest in Peace, ´¨)¸.•´¸.•´¨) ¸.•¨)

Candlemas – Oh The Light!

Candlemas - Oh The Light!

“A weekend for sacred ceremony. We are at the mid-point (in the Northern hemisphere) between the longest night & the Spring Equinox, marked in ancient ceremonies of Imbolc/Imbolg- celebrations of the Goddess Brighid, (who became Saint Brigid) goddess of fire & inspiration, poetry & healing, & (on Sunday) of Candlemas. It’s about nourishing the returning light & spark of life within ourselves & in the world, about consciously birthing our own lives & the world we share. I will light candles in a cauldron filled with earth, sing & drum softly to welcome new life, offer prayers of gratitude & for the unfolding of peace & sustainability within myself & in the world. May we co-create what sustains the life that feeds us all.” see https://www.facebook.com/Oriah.Mountain.Dreamer
