HoneyRoot is a home for
f–embodiment, investigation, connection, and intergenerational collaboration. We create brave spaces to boldly explore, expand, and truly inhabit ourselves as women.
When we bend our knees, release our jaws and pelvic muscles, rest into our weight, stay connected to our bellies, and bring attention to the constant support of the Earth, itself, we have the opportunity to find ourselves and each other, with ease, grace, and an at-home-ness that is innately ours.
As an organization rooted in education and practice, we know that the repetition of intelligent modalities grow our capacities to be present, responsive, and sincere. Embodied practice yields more depth, insight, courage and freedom than mental understanding, talk, or planning ever can.
We also knows that in order to have the impact that we desire, we must simultaneously dedicate ourselves to and continuously grow our capacity to create an intersectional community.
With this as our guiding light, we explore the realities of our own privilege and intersecting oppressions in order to deepen our understanding of ourselves and others. We are dedicated to building greater awareness in ourselves and our community, and to supporting our participants to do the same. We seek to use our privilege to amplify the voices of those who are not heard in the dominant culture, and provide those opportunities for our larger community. We honor the diversity of all beings, and stand in solidarity towards the goal of ending systems of oppression.
We value inward connection (knowing and feeling) as a ground and resource for outward activity (going and doing).
We value connection and inclusivity. We cultivate greater awareness, sensitivity and social capacity as a way to break down the barriers that have kept us from finding ease of connection in our relations with others.
We value individual growth alongside, and interwoven with, collective growth. We know the two are inseparable, and that a collective thrives when it acknowledges the uniqueness of its parts.
We open our hearts to the many textures of experience within each of us. We practice tending to all parts of ourselves while staying connected to one another.
We embrace our strengths and celebrate our unique capabilities, rather than bending to self-critique or blame that tells us we must be like others in order to belong.
We acknowledge, respect and work with the physical and subtle body in a comprehensive way – from toe to head, from root to crown.
We are proud of the breadth of our embodied expression – passion, creativity, emotion, intuition, empathy, presence, drive – and support one another in occupying all of these aspects. Through embodiment processes and community support we become the fullest and most potent expression of ourselves.
So grateful to Be With You...
Moving From the Center (for awakening women and their primary relationships)
"I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of non-feeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love."
