[In the colored part of the Newsletter below, it seems some little bug has sneaked in to play tricks on us with the blank lines. It happened in our last blog post too, and all ideas of how to resolve this aesthetic issue are of course welcome.]
Here we are, a bit more than 1½ years after the start of the Child of The Earth movement. And we’re still trying to figure out exactly what it is all about.
For now, let’s call it a Family Movement.
It all started with a man (Shanto) meeting a woman (Maya). They fell in love, and in the fall the idea of the book Maya – Child of The Earth arose. And an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign was launched to realize it.
The book project was the first baby of the movement – a baby who is now doing just fine, growing slowly but surely towards completion as she is. Presently at 12 chapters long.
Next, Maya’s and Shanto’s daughter Leah was born. Love was embodied as a New Being!!!
This birth of Leah was a Wave of Love so great that it pushed Maya onto an entirely new path: the Path of the Doula.
Meanwhile Shanto started a new business in his new country, as a Writer and Life Coach.
And… perhaps… the next step of the Child of The Earth movement might be…
…some kind of cross-fertilization of Maya’s and Shanto’s creative paths – giving birth to… some New, Never-Seen-Before Expressions.
Doulaship + Writing + Life Coaching = …….???
A first concrete example of what is emerging to the right of the above equal sign is the new service of Birth Story Writing which Maya & Shanto provide together.
A second example?
Well, how about… Freddy’s & Betty’s organic, no-shit-added, works-amazingly-well deodorant? Or Maya’s homemade soap, or Shanto’s woodcarving creations & gardening experiments, or Maya’s & Shanto’s passionate delvings into the world of unschooling, or their many adventures on the path of Family Harmony, along with Maya’s three wild sons, an even wilder dog, and an unlimited supply of wildly growing dreams…?
Do you find it difficult to see how any of this would equal Doulaship + Writing + Life Coaching? No wonder – for so do we. 😉
But THIS is just as should be in any Really Creative movement – isn’t it…!? Such a movement moves at its own will – towards a wholeness that is much bigger than the sum of its parts.
