There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
— William Stafford

We Live in a Wild Time...

A time where the shadows of modernity leave many of us feeling isolated and overwhelmed. And yet, just under the surface grows an almost unbearable longing for another way to live.

The Red Thread is an experiential, nature-based journey for women who are called to live and lead from the deep feminine. 

 

What is the Deep Feminine?

The deep feminine is the root, and wellspring of your innermost being. She trusts all ways of knowing including the wisdom of the body, the felt senses, the wild emotions, and the deep imagination. Living in congruency with depth infuses vitality back into daily living and provides access to a wellspring of creativity, insight and originality. The deep feminine knows herself to be a part of a network of relationships - she is ecologically attuned.

You Don't Ever Let Go of the Thread…

Following the thread into the depths of earth and psyche may lead to you toward a destiny that will exact the toll of your too-small stories.

 

The Red Thread is a Unique Yearlong Pilgrimage for 21 Women.

The program is both a personal initiatory pilgrimage, and a hands-on learning process for women who are called to lead transformational experiences.

For 13 moons, join us and receive new and full moon content uploads, engaging wisdom sessions with 13 guest presenters, one-on-one and group connection, and two in-person wild gatherings.

We’ll explore what it means to be fully human and fully feminine. Together, we’ll support each other in re-membering our primary place of belonging.

The Red Thread Yearlong provides both personal and professional development opportunities.

Live - Spiraling In

The Red Thread can be thought of like an alchemical vessel that fosters a ritual container for lasting personal growth. Inside the crucible of this yearlong ceremony, you will be invited to fully inhabit the edge of your own potential and step more fully into who you are deep down.

 

Lead - Spiraling Out

Our ‘inner’ work is useful only insofar as it is embodied in the world. The Red Thread is also intended to provide emerging leaders who work in an intimate capacity with other women, tools, resources, maps, and language to help you become a more effective, skillful leader in your domain of influence. 

 

 

Authenticity & Belonging

We live in a time that can only be met with our fullness. To stand in our sovereignty we must be willing to explore how we have assumed a shape that is not ours. The Red Thread is designed to increase our awareness of ways we stay small and hidden, to foster an experience of our innate wholeness, to provide tools for self-healing, and to call us back into a wider, wilder belonging.

The World Needs More Turned-On People

Women, your pleasure and your fear - especially where the two currents meet - is the confluence of your wildest potential. This place of aliveness is the edge of your becoming. To live and lead from this place is to follow pleasure, to trust the life-giving and sustaining power of the ecological erotic, and to be an advocate for what matters most.

The Art of Ritual & Ceremony

The Red Thread invites you to enter the largest conversation you can have with the world. Ceremony is at heart, a conversational practice that bridges the world of the seen and the unseen. The ritual act enables us to connect with what is meaningful in ourselves and in the world in an embodied, authentic, and imaginative way.

Learn, Live & Lead

It is not enough to know ourselves and our unique passions and gifts. To be truly human, and truly alive is to give it all away - to die of generosity. To do so is to offer both through our being, and through our craft. Here we explore a process-oriented approach to learning, while coming to know what is ours to give away.

I know there is another way to live.
When I find it, the angels
will cry out in rapture,
each cell of my body
will be a rose, a star.
— Morgan Farley

 

Self

 The Red Thread is for facilitators, coaches, healers, ceremonialists, change-makers, sacred activists, instructors, teachers, guides, creatives, and switched on leaders ready to make an impact through their presence, their passion, and their prayer.

Soul

This is for women who know that to catalyze change outside ourselves asks us to dive deeply within - to come to know through experience, your unique gift that flows into the world as the living waters of soul -  as nourishment for our time, place and people.

Sisterhood

This is for women who know we are who we are by nature of our relationship with everyone else - both human, and other-than-human. We grow and give within our webs of impact and significance. 

A Few Words On What this Immersion is Not...

This is not a life-mastery program that promises you something specific at the end - certainly not more money, more vocational efficacy or a new public persona. This is an invitation into a life-practice, with no defined beginning, and no concrete end.

We are process-focused, not end-goal focused.

We encourage experience and have designed this program to meet all four ways of knowing - sensing, feeling, imagining and deep thinking. We ask that you do not continue if you are not prepared to do the practices and fully offer yourself to the experience.

To experience something is to be willing to be changed.

This immersion is not personal therapy (though it may border on cultural therapy). If you know you are in need of therapy, please seek that support - we encourage you! 

We empower and evoke wholeness. We do not offer therapy.

This immersion is not a self-improvement program.  We extend our awareness to be in relationship with the wild world, our local communities and our networks of impact. We are in service of cultural renaissance.

Cultural Renaissance vs. Self-Improvement

Our apprenticeship of the deep feminine is NOT an exile of the deep masculine. Rather a holy meeting, a hieros gamos, a spiral dance.
