- This is cross-post to the various groups in San Diego who might find
the "Shakti Rising" organization interesting.
Shakti Rising helps women heal & grow and has an integral (including
spirit), whole-life approach to that process. They believe personal
healing and activism in the world go hand-in-hand. They have a
beautiful house in Golden Hills (with room for 10 women), and are
planning to expand onto a rural property (with room for 100 women),
and to assist men in starting a similar organization.
I attended the orientation and feminist forum they had last Friday
evening, and there is a good chance I'll be at the next one that men
can attend, the first Friday in December.
If you decide to RSVP to any of their events, don't bother using their
email address-- Call their phone number.
I believe the relevance to all the groups I'm posting to is apparent
from the description above. Except for the carfree group: if any of
you from the carfreesd list want to meet and talk about carfree stuff
at their first Friday meetings, let me know. The house is 1 mile or so
from the C-street/city college trolley station.
The feeling I got there (while certainly premature) is the closest
I've found to the community/ecovillage feeling I got from being at
Earthaven Ecovillage ( http://earthaven.org )--and it is here in San
Conceivably, it could be or become a place that could foster the
various activisms all these different lists represent.
