1 Mountlake Terrace Washington state United States

2 Hood River Oregon United States
3 London Ontario Canada

Report 2011: I stood on the steps of the church with a few women from the congregtation. Frankly, I felt disappointed that more people (men included) didn't join us. Perhaps next year we could make a better effort to mobilize them. It could have been a lot more powerful. Ringing the church bell was pretty powerful, though. I have a vision of all the churches in the city ringing their bells at the same time on Mothers Day, and hundreds of people gathered for the same purpose - a better world.

Report 2011: I am 84 years old & have been a Progressive woman who often could be found protesting negativity & destructive actions of the times. I stood outside on my little patio with Julia Howe's Original Proclamation for the first Mother's Day in 1870. As I read it aloud in my best theater voice, I pictured my own beautiful granddaughters as foreground and then all human children surrounded by a healthy MOTHER PLANET capable of providing a safe nourishing ground for a new awakening to the ONENESS of ALL LIFE and the DIVINE CONNECTION to our MOTHER EARTH. I realized Julia's plea as an ancient cry deep in all of us, men & women, to be safe, supported, and capable to explore a life of Self Realization. How war and fear and competition have invaded the education of our human family. My eyes filled with tears as I confirmed my determination to continue teaching and living my awareness that Humanity is One Spirit connected, dependent, and related to every form of life on this EARTH, our mother planet. We, as women can observe how the Earth cherishes life and learn from her true feminine energy; receptivity, patience and the power of transformation. How to collect human compost and transform it into fertilizer. We can do it!

14 Sarasota Florida United States
Where standing: I will be with my teenage daughter on my porch.
The good emerging: I believe in beauty and harmony. I believe we need to restore the joy of living, and that to do that we must take very specific actions to bring our minds and egos into alignment with our nature and spirits. I am a former dancer,a Montessori elementary educator, and a CranioSacral Therapist utilizing Energy Medicine and intuitive work. I assist to heal body/mind/heart/spirit of childhood injury in adults, and therefore to help them heal themselves while also healing the pathways of the children dependant to them. I have spent many years experiencing and observing the effects of our culture's lost way with children, and am aligned with the changes that are bringing the return of divine male/female balance, the power of feminine wisdom (including authentic mother wisdom), and the resultant care for our offspring.
