Opens 24th February, 2020 New Moon

 

Led by Joey Walters and hosted By Rising Connected ~

A Learning Community For Awakening Women Entrepreneurs, Coaches, Healers, Therapists and Change Leaders.

An invitation to take a journey within… to awaken your  feminine wisdom and bring purpose and wellbeing to the heart of your life …

 

“And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom…”

Anais Nin

Dear Sister on the path,

Have you noticed that amidst the chaos and disconnection in the world around us, something beautiful is waking up in us as women?

It’s like a precious seed of potential that we carry in our hearts, that yearns to come into full blossom and create a future that brings new possibilities for our lives, for our children and for our planet.

This ‘seed’ of care is in our collective DNA as women. We’re the carriers and nurturers of life and it’s time for us to acknowledge and share the deep feminine wisdom that’s stirring in our bones.

We’re waking up to our heart’s desire to contribute; to offer our unique gifts in grounded ways that nourish our well-being and honour our innate feminine strengths.

We want to feel free to express ourselves more authentically and be fulfilled in our lives, knowing that we are making a difference whist being true to ourselves and our creative longings. 

Many prophecies say it too ~ life is inviting us to ‘rise’ as woman and light the way forward in whatever way we feel inspired to. 

I  call this Feminine Leadership.

I’m not talking about the kind of leadership we usually see in the world around us. We’re being called to follow a new, more feminine and sustainable path, where we let our hearts sit in the driving seat and we get nourished along the way. It’s not about reaching uncompromising goals and achieving great things… it’s about committing to the unfolding journey of becoming who we are and blossoming in our authentic contribution to a more loving, sustainable world.  

This is The Path Of Feminine Wisdom…

 

But when we follow the call to blossom,

the path is never straightforward…

Because we’ll be asked to face our greatest fears and transform who we think we are and what we think we’re capable of.

 

You’re not alone! No matter what stage we’re at on our journey of self-discovery, we’ll meet the parts of us that want to play safe.

It’s only natural that when we take the ‘risk’ to blossom with the next expression of our gifts or stand for something that matters deeply to us, we’ll meet the edge of our comfort zone.

This can be an uncomfortable and confusing place where:

~ We doubt our authentic voice… we feel called to share more of ourselves but the thought of being ‘visible’ in our truth brings up fear, shame and self-doubt.

~ We don’t recognise the value of our gifts… we sense we have something precious to offer but find it hard to own the true value of our unique contribution.

~ We under estimate our power… we can sense our capacity to make a difference but we get caught in our comfort zone, looking outside ourselves for the courage to act on our inspiration.

~ We disconnect from our feminine wisdom… we yearn to receive deeper guidance and resourcing but find it hard to slow down and make space for our own self-care.

If we’re not aware of how these old stories of fear play out, we get stuck. We default to the path of ‘no obstacles’, we hide, we numb, we override our needs, we distract ourselves, we bend ourselves to keep others happy, we convince ourselves we’re not ready, and dumb our voices down. We find another training or qualification to counter our unconscious fear in the hope that soon we’ll be ready enough or good enough to follow our heart’s desire to blossom!

In short, we turn away from our wisest selves and disconnect from the very source of feminine wisdom that guides and sustains us on our journey.

This can be a painful place to be stuck if we don’t understand what’s happening.

 

 That’s where The Path Of Feminine Wisdom

can show us another way.

She asks…

 What if this place of fear, doubt and stuck-ness is where the real magic happens…?

What if  …

… all the challenges, breakdowns, confusion and fear you’ve been experiencing, are the extraordinary ways your feminine wisdom is graciously waking you up, showing you the doorway to your power and steering you onto the pathway of your true feminine power?

What if that precious seed of creative inspiration stirring in your heart, is asking you to trust your heart’s wisdom and capacity you already have, to live your highest purpose?

 What if… Instead of letting the infertile conditions of your past keep you small, you watered your sacred seed and found a safe, nourishing container in which it could grow into its full blossom?

It’s time to trust the wisdom of your heart, bring compassion to the limiting stories of your past and own the true story of who you really are…

The Path Of Feminine Wisdom is about learning to create the nurturing conditions within, that help you to strengthen your roots and blossom with your gift.

It’s totally normal to want to turn away from our fear and other difficult emotions like grief, shame and anger. We do it much of the time unconsciously as a way of protecting ourselves. 

However, it’s also important to recognise that our vulnerability is a natural part of our humanity and an essential part of the creative process of living our potential. Without it we cannot fully access the wisdom of the heart that gives us our creative fuel for change. 

The real invitation awaiting us, is to find a new way to relate to our feelings of vulnerability so that we can learn to choose how we respond to life from a place of love rather than fear.

Instead of overriding our feelings, we can learn to welcome and hold them with tenderness and curiosity…

Instead of turning away from our heart’s inspiration to blossom, we can turn towards it… we can learn to follow it, with a deep confidence that we’ll find our way through the ‘obstacles’ that will inevitably show up on our path. 

Instead of dismissing our past, we can re-claim the power and beauty of the path we have already walked. We can bring it home to the present and create a more wholesome foundation for our future.

Just as a seed needs the conditions that will support it to grow and flourish… so we need to create the conditions within us that will help us to grow and flourish.

Holding space for this transformation in ourselves is the starting point for any change we are seeking in our lives and the foundation for holding space for anyone else on their journey of healing and wellbeing.

An Invitation To Walk The Path ~ Together

 

Our feminine wisdom is showing us it’s time to stop going it alone and start Rising Connected.

We have been living in the field of a fast paced, results oriented, competitive, consumer culture for so long that it’s easy to become disconnected from our wisdom, from nature and from the natural rhythms that guide us on our path of blossoming.

If you can relate to this and you’ve been feeling like a fish out of water, or criticising yourself for having a hard time trying to make a difference in a way that honours your feminine wisdom, then please take heart because there is NOTHING wrong with you!

You’re in good company if you sometimes (or often) find yourself…

~ struggling to express yourself more authentically, feeling you’re withholding your voice, your wisdom and your creative potential.

~ pushing past your own needs for caretrying to keep up with your role, your business or your leadership, alongside all the pressures of life and overriding your own wellbeing.

~ feeling isolated on your journey, yearning for an understanding tribe to journey with, and yet still feeling part of you feels it’s safer to go it alone than to risk asking for support.

~ getting caught in reactivity, finding it hard to process the difficult emotions that can be triggered when challenging situations or people show up on your path.

These are some of the symptoms of the enormous transition WE and our world is in. 

The linear path of the old paradigm tells us that all the solutions are outside us… and that we need to do more, work faster, do it better, be certain, get it right, make more money, be an expert, have more things, and take more resources from our environment! But that way doesn’t feed or sustain our wellbeing and it’s certainly not sustaining our planet.  

The path of feminine wisdom shows us a new way that’s missing from our mainstream culture. She tells us that our capacity to create a new world around us, starts with our capacity to create a new world within. She helps us to see that in the process of bringing our healing gifts into the world, we cannot exclude the process of healing ourselves. The inner and outer paths are inextricably related and our real work is to learn how to honour and integrate them both.

However, probably the most ESSENTIAL thing that SHE teaches us, is that we cannot walk this path of blossoming as healers and change leaders in isolation from one another or from mother nature herself.

We’re in this together and we need the mutual and loving connection, encouragement and support from others who can meet us on our inner journey of transformation.

It’s time for a new way …

Instead of striving alone to bring new creative possibilities to life, it’s time to Rise Connected as a collective force of care and inspired change ~

Starting from within!

The Structure Of The Journey

 Over the course of six 6 months you’ll be guided on a personal ‘quest’ using a map called The Wisdom Circle.

The Wisdom Circle Map

The 8 Essential Doorways To Your Feminine Wisdom 

This map has its roots in ancient Earth-based Wisdom teachings and will take you on a journey of discovery through ‘8 Essential Doorways’ that help you to awaken your feminine wisdom and authentic power.

At a pace that works for you, you’ll be invited to explore the essential Principles, Practices and Agreements that will awaken your capacity to hold a loving, transformative space for yourself and learn to navigate through the peaks and troughs that arise on your journey of blossoming. 

The Map – Our Journey Content ~You’ll receive an email with links to the new online programme content every two weeks. This online content will keep you on track with your learning but also allow you to listen in your own time and have your own pace of inquiry. 

Live Online Teaching/Mentoring Circles ~ In the weeks in-between the content delivery, I’ll be hosting Live Online Teaching/Mentoring Circles where we’ll gather on Zoom video conference to connect in the Rising Connected community and explore the themes and content more deeply together. Regardless of where you are on the journey through the modules, these live sessions are a wonderful way to deepen your learning, build warm connections and feel the power of our shared experience. 

Personal Practice and Reflective Inquiry Time ~  We provide the structure, materials and guidance, but the application is really down to you. We encourage you to take a little time each day to reflect on your learning journey, engage in the online content and work with the ‘practices’ we offer.

Sharing The Experience With An Inspiring Community Of Women ~ We invite you to make the most of one of the most transformational aspect of your journey. Your Community. You’ll be given access to an amazing online gathering space which we call Rising Connected. In that space you’ll be able to see and connect with everyone on the journey with you. This is also where we post all the programme materials, so it’s a fabulous one stop shop.

We’re also excited about a recent development as we intend evolve the programme as a rolling programme rather than a fixed end to end journey. There is still a lot to figure out, but we see a huge benefit in making the programme available so other women can join in their own time or at specific entry points during the year. 

However we do want to appreciate YOU for jumping in now, so you’ll receive the special introductory pricing that we’ve created for this first wave of participants. 

 

You’ll receive…

◉ Access to The Wisdom Circle online teaching materials which include: Principle MP3 teaching videos/audios, written guides, audio practices and reflective learning practices and Nature Quests. These materials will be available in our online community forum and you’ll be able to explore these at your own pace.

◉ 6 months access to Live Teaching/Mentoring Circles with Joey (and Guardians) (approx every two weeks via Zoom video conference ~ Includes access to replays). These will be a combination of teaching, reflective practice, shared learning, Q&A and mentoring. (Occasional sessions may be held by a Guardian/Mentor especially during periods of integration).

◉ Ongoing free access to the ‘Rising Connected’ online community forum with the opportunity to contribute to it’s emergent vision as a 2020 founding member.

Support from our journey ‘Guardians’, who will point you in the right direction if you get lost or stuck and help you feel at home in the online Community.

◉ The opportunity to continue with access to the Live Mentoring Circles. After your first 6 months exploring The Path Of Feminine Wisdom, you’ll have the opportunity to continue participation in the Live Mentoring Circles with Joey (and Guardians) for a low monthly fee. This supports your freedom to go at your own pace whilst receiving live support.

◉ As the programme develops we also aim to offer scheduled ‘Check-ins’ in the Live Chat area of our online forum as well as the opportunity to find a buddy to share your learning journey with.

We’d also love  you to know that this journey is just the beginning and that you’ll have the opportunity to deepen your learning if you are as nourished and inspired as we think you’ll be. 

“This programme has been the perfect opportunity for me to step into and experience Feminine Wisdom. Joey creates a beautiful, supportive, loving container, grounded in strong agreements and supported by the Wisdom Circle Teachings. The intimacy created in the circle enabled me to touch the depths of the teachings and receive their rich offerings, opening me to the possibility of a different way of leading that is both healthy Masculine AND healthy Feminine”. Helen Bailey.

This Circle gave me real sustenance, a more intimate connection with others and Life, and all the guidance I needed to make sense of my leadership journey. There is so much love, vulnerability and integrity in these circles, that one can’t help but take that power out into the world.” Sarah Stout.

 Experience The Power Of Community

Join Us In Rising Connected!

We’re so excited about what’s to come…

I hope that you’ll join us in what we believe is such an exciting collective journey for us to be in at this time!

I have been learning to walk this path of transformation over the last 18 years or more… but it’s only since I’ve been deepening this work with women in Circle over the last decade, that I’ve really started to understand the extraordinary nature of the collective journey we are on and the transformational power of our shared experience.

That’s why I wanted to offer you, not just a programme but a community of ongoing support that’s there for you beyond this programme. Later on, you’ll also have the chance to deepen your learning in a small, guided  ‘Circle of 8’ and join me and other amazing women in learning more about how to Hold Space for others as a feminine leader and mentor on this path of transformation.

We’re still in the very early days of growing the community and all the resources it can offer, but joining us now means you get to help us shape the way forward.

I’d love you to join me and many other amazing women on this unfolding, magical Path of Feminine Wisdom. The journey begins on 24th February New Moon!
