ABOUT

“To see nature is to see ourselves...to preserve nature is to preserve the matrix through which we can experience our souls and the soul of planet earth." 

- Walter Christie

THE INNER CALL OF EARTH

Humanity is being prepared for the next phase of evolution and

we are all being made ready to play a critical role in its expansion.

​We come from the perspective that what ails humanity at this time is a deep separation from the source of our spiritual sustenance and our embedded aliveness within the greater body of Earth. This has resulted in a collective forgetting of the sacred in our lives, exemplified by the abusive, pathological relationship that the majority of humans currently have with each other and Earth. 

We believe that Earth is calling to humanity through the collective discomfort of these times and is asking each of us to rise and reclaim our purpose in service to planetary healing. This means interrogating the very systems that we have come to depend upon - systems established through genocide, colonialism, slavery, and war. We are bearing witness to the crumbling of an Empire which continues to wreak havoc on the earth. Many are waking up and responding to the inner call to be of highest service; to reorient our understanding of the world and to heal and transform ourselves through our relational reflections. 

 

As part of whole systems, we understand that individual trauma is embedded within the larger framework of systemic oppression and that what we do to Earth, we do to ourselves. Thus, our work seeks to address these interconnections within the web of our relationships, from the micro to the macro. A shift in consciousness is taking place as more people begin to reckon with the past in order to re-story the present, to look deeply at the source of our pain and disconnection from Self, each other, and nature.  

 

We are all being asked to rebirth ourselves and to co-create new relational realities by committing to personal healing, relational integrity, collective care, and ecological embodiment. We are here on Earth at this time for a reason: to serve and uphold our sacred responsibility in a way that supports the unity and harmonization of all our relations and of the whole planet. 

 

We are here to support you on your journey of reclamation as you deepen your commitment to relational embodiment, collective liberation, and planetary healing.

OUR TEAM

At her core, Michelle is a healer, seer, and deep feeler. She is steady, committed, strong-willed, and carries the gift of manifestation. When Michelle gets something in her mind, it's only a matter of time before it becomes reality. She is the calm in the center of a storm, and the pearl of her essence is stillness.  As an introverted empath, she is one who thrives in beingness and requires plenty of space to nurture presence and commune with the quiet, hidden aspects of life. As such,  she is a woman who is not afraid of the dark, rather she finds peace and a sense of home in the places where most people feel discomfort and aversion. Michelle is highly attuned to the subtle realms and finds deep peace and clarity in the serenity of nature. As someone who identifies as an eco-sensual, Earth and all of her creatures are the ones who bring Michelle a deep sense of inner fulfillment and ecstasy. 

Within our team, Michelle is our Heart Keeper, intuitive healer, and keeps us focused on what matters most. She facilitates our group therapeutic process spaces, works one-on-one with those seeking guidance, and listens deeply to the needs of others.

 

Michelle has endured the trials of emotionally and physically abusive relationships. Through the initiation of her relationships, she began to see the fragmented pieces of her familial patterns being repeated through her life unconsciously as if she was living out the same themes of every generation before her. The mirror of all the stories, behaviors, dynamics, and emotional tides of her own existence was not hers but imprinted within her as if they were.  That is why she has committed her life to the path of healing and supporting others to work through the unconscious layers of intergenerational trauma that hold them back from actualizing their full potential.

Jessica Cudney is a queer environmental justice organizer, experienced group facilitator, and MindBody Therapy Practitioner with over seven years of community building experience. She received her BA in Political Science and Social Justice and Peace Studies at the University of Western in London, Ontario. 

 

Jessica is a member of the NC Alamance NAACP Chapter and sits on the Environmental Justice Committee. She is an active organizer with local Indigenous-led efforts to protect our communities, Land, and Waters from the threat of fossil fuel industrial expansion, specifically the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

 

As a trauma-informed MindBody Therapy Practitioner, Jessica holds the importance of body-centered transformation as central to healing and justice. Through her personal practice, Jessica seeks to support folks in creating a life of meaning and purpose; aligning daily practice with deepest held values; making necessary lifestyle shifts that make room for more aliveness and presence; and unlearning conditioned/colonized ways of being that get in the way of thriving. Grounded in social justice values, Jessica challenges and supports clients to take an honest look at themselves, while deepening their capacity to hold themselves and others in loving regard.

 

In the blissful mundane of everyday life, Jess loves gathering all her friends together to share and co-create intentional, meaningful experiences. She thrives and nurtures her core by dancing, writing, crafting, and spending time in nature. She is inspired every day by the magic and beauty of earth and delights in capturing the essence of Earth through nature photography.

Lily embodies the essence of a mountain: constancy, equanimity, stability, and order, yet she is also fiery and fierce in her convictions. Lily’s flame ignites when she witnesses the injustices and lack of integrity within our political systems. She is a powerful force through her intellect and integrity, and she will not stand down in the face of dominance. She harnesses her righteous anger into passion by creating space to educate, amplify, build skills and support the needs of people.

 

On behalf of our team, Lily is our Scribe & Story Keeper - she weaves all of the threads of this unfolding work together. She sees through the logistics, gets things down to the practical, and can narrow any complex idea into its simplest form. She is our wordsmith, resource guide, content editor, and software queen. She plans gatherings, retreats, and rituals for our team. Her preference is to lead from behind the scenes where she can quietly observe and yet make movement happen all at once. 

More than anything, Lily is devoted to serving her family and friends and the people she holds in her heart. She spends most of her time making gifts, creating rituals, planning hangouts, researching, and reading for others. Every breath is in service to her relationships. Lily embodies the most ideal, loyal, and committed friend anyone could ever know. When you are in her presence, you feel as though a warm blanket has been placed over your shoulders as she holds a space for you to be whomever you are in the moment.
