EARTH DAY WISDOM: Virtual Gathering

Wednesday, April 22, 2020
3:00 pm Central | 1:00 pm Pacific

via Zoom call (donation based)

Hello dear friends:

I hope this finds you in good health and sheltered in a way that allows for the support, resources and small moments of joy and connection we need during this time of collective pause.

While our outer lives have been halted, the planetary cycles are in full force. New moons are always a time to reset and the upcoming meeting of the sun and moon is extra potent with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day falling on the same day. It is humbling to think about where we were as a society and as a world in 1970 when some folks were feeling the rumblings of what earth wisdom keepers knew since the beginning of living on this planet — that Earth was our Mother and needed to be honored, cared for and protected. Here we are 50 years later in a pandemic (in Greek pan = “all” or mythic god of the wild creatures and medic = people) that is disrupting our inability to stay in right relationship with the Earth and natural world. How have we lost our way and how do we, as Joni Mitchell sang in her prophetic song Woodstock, “ get ourselves back to the garden” of our inner and outer lives?

In commemoration of this 50th anniversary and new moon in fixed Earth Taurus, Dorothée and I are teaming up for a virtual gathering on Earth Day this coming Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 1:00 pm Pacific / 3:00 pm Central time.

We are excited to create community as a way connect and tune into the message of the moment. I will share my astrological insights about ways to collaborate with these cycles and then guide us on a meditation to plant seeds for a relationship with the New Earth. Dorothée will talk about some ritual support that anyone can do at home as well as herbal remedies that could be beneficial at this time.

We hope you can join us!

Sending deep love and wishing you abundant health,

Susan

I am so excited to be offering this special workshop at Chill Meditation + Massage to launch a more collaborative understanding and harness the potential transformative elements available when Venus retrogrades for her 40 day cycle diving into the dark to retrieve her light. I have found these cycles to be very significant in my life and offer a way for women to experience and expand the limits of our inner feminine nature via the sign that Venus travels through when she takes us into the mythic journey. As she will be retrograding in the sign Scorpio, this cycle is sure to be deep, challenging, sensual and intense!

Please join us for a very special circle to explore the basics of the cycle via a brief overview, some experiential exercises and a guided journey. This workshop is for women (or those who identify as female ) only.

GIVING THANKS TO THE GREAT MOTHER
A Lakefront Celebration to Honor the Power of Love

Sunday, May 8, 2016
8:30 am gathering; 9:00 am ceremony

Where: Montrose Harbor along the lakefront in Chicago. Look for sun icon on map below.

Honoring the Great Mother

Dearest sisters and brothers,

Let's create a community of daughters and sons where we celebrate the gift of life by offering a wave of love and gratitude to the Mother Presence, which is:

  • Divine and Universal
  • Planetary and Earthly
  • Within our hearts and in our Families

Our ceremony will begin at 9:00 am with a procession of powerful healing drums from Southern Chile. The voice of these Kultruns* is used to summon the universal heartbeat of the Great Mother and invite this rhythm to our ceremony for strength and restoration. We will pray for the visions we hold in support of all living beings and send that intention into Lake Michigan and out into the Four Directions. We will complete the celebration with simple chants for universal harmony and songs offered as one unified voice in support of global unity, tolerance and peace.

* In honoring the lineage voice of the Chilean Kultrun drums we ask that you do not bring your own drums to this event.

Please bring a flower and a rattle (if you have one); your desire to share the Mother Love with our planetary family should be present in your heart as well.

All are welcome to attend this event!

It is our great pleasure to invite the beautiful women of the Everyday Medicine Woman community to share this day with those they love — partners, kids, family members, friends and animal companions.

Plan on arriving early to find the location.

Please have a look at the map below for our exact location. Weather permitting we will gather at the SHINE location, indicated by the sun below. Please note that in the event of rain we will NOT be gathering due to the rain's impact on the drums. Stay tuned to our Facebook event page for updates! If you are interested in volunteering to assist Susan at 8:30am, please click here to email.

Montrose Beach, Chicago

In these uncertain times, it is by gathering in the spirit of hope, peace and love that we can surround ourselves with the positive energy we are offering, creating a circle of powerful remembrance. Please join us!

Full Moon Women's Medicine Circle

Facilitated by Susan A. Lipshutz, LCSW

Lunar Lammas

Sunday, August 10, 2014, Lunar Lammas
Chicago, IL

Come bask in the light of the full moon and love from your sacred sisterhood as we gather on the evening of August 10, 2014, for release, restoration and inspired mirroring of our beautiful souls.

Our theme for this gathering will harmonize with the Aquarian super moon in the sun sign of Leo: strengthening authentic, heartfelt self-confidence and rededication to our personal calling.

This medicine circle is open to any woman who has participated in events, circles, retreats, Thirteen Moons or other activities with Susan A. Lipshutz and our Everyday Medicine Woman community. As we all know, just about every woman is feeling over-worked and under-nourished. Time is at a premium and it is becoming increasingly difficult to make on-going commitments to multiple programs or events; especially those that our heart is yearning to explore. Yet we need moments to remember our profoundly beautiful essence and be fed the spiritual elixir of our tribe and the divine feminine guidance that flows once we are awakened to our own divine nature.

We hope that this circle will serve to support that intention and be meaningful no matter where you are on your path and process. We have found that whoever shows up to the call always weaves a solid container for our mutual healing and growth.

This medicine circle will include our usual elements of sacred practices including a talking circle, journey, ritual and prayer in support of our individual and collective work.

Please bring a medicine piece (stone or crystal) to create our community altar for the evening, a stone to work with for our journey and a rattle if you have one. There will be yoga mats available. Please bring something to sit on the floor if you prefer and water in a spill-resistant bottle only.

Please read the logistics carefully so you come to the correct location as we hold events at multiple locations:

Date: Sunday, August 10, 2014, Lunar Lammas

Time*: 7:00 pm- 9:30 pm
6:45 pm, check-in; 7:00 pm, circle begins


*Please be prompt as there are other events at the same venue.

Location: Yogaview (Lincoln Park), 2211 N Elston #200 Chicago, IL 60614 [ map ]

Important: Please enter the building at the Webster Street door, not the one on Elston. Ample free street parking is available.

Cost: $50.00 pre-pay; $55.00 at the door as space permits

My heart is bursting with excitement to offer this circle as a means to support each woman's remembrance of her beauty, grace and powerful gifts. We have grown into a super circle of amazing goddesses just like the super full moon. May we enter into the magic, mystery and deep wonder of this evening, creating a space that allows for not only our personal reconnection and reunion, but also for the collective feminine voice, heart and empowered wisdom throughout our beloved planet.

Together anything is possible!

Susan

GRANDMOTHER FLORDEMAYO IN CHICAGO!

Friday, October 12 - Sunday, October 14

We're excited to bring you a series of events during a visit to Chicago by Grandmother Flordemayo, universal healer and member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Join us for a workshop, a teaching circle and a screening of the film For the Next 7 Generations directed by Carole Hart with a Q&A session.

Grandmother FlordemayoAbout Flordemayo
Born the youngest of 15 children in the highlands of Central America, Flordemayo was found at an early age — like others in her family — to have the gift of Sight. By age four, she was being trained in the art of curanderismo which had been handed down from mother to daughter for many generations. Flordemayo's mother was a midwife and healer and taught her daughters in the use of herbs, women's medicine and how women are to honor and care for the Earth.

Flordemayo now lives in New Mexico. She is a frequent presenter at international conferences. Since 1999, she has been part of the Wisdom of the Grandmothers' Foundation. She is the recipient of the Martin de La Cruz Award for Alternative Healing, a prestigious honor given by the International Congress of Traditional Medicine. Flordemayo is also a founding director of the Institute for Natural and Traditional Knowledge. This organization has many active projects, including the establishment of an organic seed bank and educational outreach in support of traditional agriculture.

"Humanity is at a crossroads, we can only go one way, as one can't go in two directions at the same time. We do not know what we need to do as a human species, there is only one place to go and that is into the light, as one tribe."

- Flordemayo
