Gaia Sophia - Partners in Earth Shealing
The Earth is an emergent whole system with profound intelligence and actualization for self-regeneration. We are nurturers of the inner wisdom of Earth healing already underway. Earth is known as Gaia; Sophia represents wisdom. We are activated catalysts for regeneration. We are also catalysts for awakening more catalysts. We are part of the stream of life. The arts are an activating, Earth-enhancing modality. Womyn have a vital role in the unfurling Earth regeneration. We support the activating matrix of Gaian life.
Revolving at the center of earth is the galactic fire from the first expansion. The insight, patterns, processes, knowledge, wisdom, creativity, and generativity of our universe's birth burns within us. Our universe's birth burns within us.
Relying on the sacred wisdom of creation, billions of years of earth evolution, millions of years of tectonic gyres, the unfolding complexity and biological ecstasy of speciation, over 40,000 years of emerging human culture, and wisdom from coevolution with all Earth life, we are amply resourced. We look forward to sharing and activating the ample resources of Earth Wisdom, GaiaSophia, through the work of Moonifest, our micro-grant programs, and participation with the effortless, spacious, generous catalyzing activities of Moonifesters galactically. So far, we have been able to offer more than $13,000 in grants to women's art, wisdom, and earth regeneration projects. With your help, more is possible to regenerate Gaian thriving.
