THE RITES OF PASSAGE RESILIENCE COLLECTIVE
Tools of Resilience + Re-membering for Times of Transition
13 BIPOC artists + healers
13 offerings each month
We are an online collective of 13 creators from within the larger 20/20 Vision project, offering monthly classes, meditations, writing and art for women + femmes for 13 lunar cycles from August 2020 to August 2021.
We recognize that the world and our shared humanity within it are in a massive collective "rite of passage". The Rites of Passage "Resilience Collective" is emerging as a response to these times; as a way forward, together and through.
As old structures based in separation and control are being exposed, challenged, and ultimately dismantled, we need new, remembered ways that can sustain us in embodying our human potential for collectivity, compassion and mutual-respect. These are ways founded in connection, reverence for the Earth, and the circle of relatedness in which every being is a teacher. We believe that resilience is the foundation for building a just and regenerative world in our true likeness.
The Resilience Collective asks: What does collective and personal resilience look like? What nurtures it? And how can we support each other in building it? Together we are co-weaving a basket of medicine, remembrance and truth for these times. We believe that a basket woven together in this way is stronger, more beautiful and of course - more resilient:)
HOW IT WORKS
Starting monthly at $3 for BIPOC // $9 sliding scale for non-BIPOC on PATREON:
*Each New + Full Moon, you'll receive resilience offerings in your inbox which we've crafted for that lunar cycle's theme.
*Become part of a virtual community for women + femmes dedicated to honoring our unique personal + collective rites of passage, and to discovering + cultivating adaptive resilience in these changing times.
*Support the voices, wisdom + artistic expression of women of color in the world at this pivotal moment in our human history. We believe that transformation happens simultaneously inside + outside of ourselves, and that resilience thrives in collectivity. As a Patreon member, you support both the creation of "20/20 Vision"- the next live iteration of Rites of Passage, as well as the Resilience Collective itself.
*With 3 sliding scale tiers (for BIPOC + non-BIPOC), you choose how you'll exchange your financial capital for our cultural + spiritual capital. We offer guidance on deciding what tier is right for you on our Patreon site.
PERSONAL + POLITICAL
We offer personal practices and the vulnerability of our own stories to support
us all in continuing to heal and liberate
the wounded places within us and our world. Our offerings range from movement to music, integrated self-care, herbalism, rituals, writing and visual art to nurture and restore ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and politically.
We believe that the unique wisdom
of female / femme,
+ Black, Indigenous,
and diverse People of Color voices
are the leading edge in the collective movement for co-creating an equitable and regenerative future.
We believe that within each of our ancestral lineages, lies wisdom waiting to be reclaimed.
Each month, our 13 offerings are created around a shared theme and
the energy of each month's lunation, and are released before each New + Full Moon. In this way, we hope to support women + femmes in connecting more deeply with the natural cycles of the moon, the stars, and Earth.
re-connection = decolonization

“the ability to thrive by mirroring nature's
adaptability, limit damaging impacts, and evolve in the face of turbulent change, while nurturing
healing, pleasure, and joy.”

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
