"I breathed in the pure, wonderful air. It tasted sweet on my tongue. Everywhere I turned I could see, smell, hear, taste, and touch life force. For the first time, I really felt what it was like to be alive, to feel the connection of all life. The energy hit me in a wave. Gripped by the spirit of the forest, I dropped to my knees and began to sob."
~ Julia Butterfly Hill

Calling all Women...
What becomes possible when millions of women remember who and what we really are - and then direct that collectively towards the greening of our world?
We want to find out.
If you do too, then TreeSisters is for you :) Please join us.
We are at a developmental threshold - ready to bring our offering to scale and turn a campaign into a global movement.
"Women as a force of nature - on behalf of nature..."
TreeSisters is a social experiment of our time. We are a women's organisation growing a global network of TreeSisters to help crowd fund rapid tropical reforestation. We are doing it in ways that honour the value and uniqueness of woman in our world - cultivating feminine nature based intelligence and leadership on behalf of our ecology and future generations.
- 1. We craft unique resources and courses that bring women together to nourish the roots of collective action.
- 2. We are developing a tree campaign that aims to make it normal for all of us to give back to Earth every month by gifting money for trees, and channeling that to existing reforestation initiatives in the tropics.
Our first 140,460 trees are funded and we are currently exploring four more tropical reforestation initiatives that will become the beneficiaries of our first major tree campaign at the launch of the new web site in spring. This means that when you fund TreeSisters, you will be funding a portfolio of exemplary tree initiatives that cover a wide range of ecological and social benefits.
TreeSisters is based on a Map of 5 Choices that reflects a woman's body - you can see it here. It is a whole system of energy flows and capacities that are the ground of our value system and every level of our organisational structure and strategy. Life sits at the centre of the Map - asking the question, how would humanity live if Life were more important than Money? (see below for both Light and Shadow Map - the resistance within the same system.)
We've placed Life at the centre of TreeSisters and have created an organisation that operates out of the wisdom of living systems. We follow both the lunar and solar cycles in order to be supported by the natural energetic flows of which we are an intrinsic part. It really works! This is one of the reason that we hold both Full and New Moon calls - to bring us together so that we can fill our tanks back up, but also to punctuate our lives with the moon flows that govern women's bodies, so that we can start to be back in tune... There is a huge resource of free meditations and calls right here for you to use whenever you need support and strengthening...
Until the new web site is up and running, we are still seeking the core developmental funding needed to enable 80% of the networks funds to go to the trees (20% will go to supporting women and the organisation itself).
We are seeking our angels - the roots of this whole venture - the men and women that get what this could be, and wish to ensure that it becomes all it can be. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's make this dream a green and leafy reality that changes the face of our world.
TreeSisters is a twin tree. One trunk embodies our mission to help reforest the Tropics and the other trunk embodies our mission to awaken and call forth women’s nature-based feminine leadership as the means by which we bring balance back to our planet. The two trunks share a common root system. For us, women and trees are indivisible.
