What an amazing Time to be alive...

I AM GRATEFUL FOR A WORLD WHERE…

I AM GRATEFUL FOR

A WORLD WHERE…

we recognize we live on a planet in transition and collectively set to work to collaborate and cultivate the capacity for solving the enormous challenges of this time, deepening our response-ability in Interbeing with Earth.

AND WHERE…

AND WHERE…

and that our collective cultural art, foods and traditions are honored and respected.

creating from heart and hands is worthy of fair compensation.

Indigenous resilience practices (like Yoga and Mayan Time Keeping) are remembered along with our ancestors that kept the sacred practices alive despite their greatest struggles.

AND THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE…

AND THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE…

people are generous, compassionate, empathic, and just.

curiosity, authenticity, honesty, play and lightness of being are valued as a path to dialogue and understanding.

JEDI Edgewalkers are doing the daily work to decolonize and reclaim Time so they can show up with integrity in their service to the world.

TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS
By addressing toxic late-stage capitalism, colonialism, the industrial food system and the burnout, dis-ease, addiction, brain fog, autoimmune issues and general unmitigated stress that these Systems create.
WHAT WE ARE FACING TODAY
If you’re struggling with your health. If your nervous system is overburdened. If you find yourself longing to make the difference your soul incarnated to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more money. If only I felt better.” I want you to know one thing:
IT’S. NOT. YOUR. FAULT.
There are social systems and structures in place that are designed to keep you exactly where you are, precisely so that you cannot make the changes you came to make.
AND
I can show you how to work under, around and through these systems so that you can come out on the other side healthy, whole, empowered and free to get on with your Soul’s Mission.

Together

we can stitch a new garment by…

Dreaming our way out of systems of brutal productivity emblematic of late-stage capitalism, white supremacist colonialism, big pharma and big ag (that cuts us off from the medicine and food given to us by Earth), and the burnout, dis-ease, addiction, brain fog, autoimmune issues and unmitigated toxic stress that these uninitiated systems create.

What we're facing today…

If your health is overburdened by toxic stress. If your nervous system is on tilt. If you find yourself longing to create greater impact your soul incarnated to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more resources. If only I felt more focused.”


I want you to know one thing…

It's. Not. Your. Fault.

There are social systems and structures in place that are designed to keep you exactly where you are, precisely to prevent you from implementing the culture making you came to create.

And…

We will learn how to work under, around and through these systems so that we can come out on the other side initiated, focused, resilient, and liberated to Dream in our Wild Presence.

...and I know what’s possible when we give ourselves Time and Space for Rest

I come to our work together from the intersection of on-the-ground organizing and political work; from deep training in ancestral spiritual practices and plant medicine; and from 35+ years of consciousness exploration. For nearly 3 decades I’ve committed myself to social justice work, organizing for communities of culture and serving in local politics.

My first twenty years I learned it wasn’t safe to be seen as I fought to survive in a world where I felt I wasn’t invited and didn’t belong.


“Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, Grow, Grow.”

— The Talmud


Yet through conscious daily practice in the company of many angels in differing forms over the last thirty-five years I discovered strength in surrounding myself with the community of others (including people, plants and pollinators) that helped me feel a sense of belonging — re-membering how to feel safe in my skin and embedded in the natural world while being ok with the discomfort of dismantling systems on the daily.

“We are the ones

we’ve been waiting for.”

quoting June Jordan

HERE’S WHAT ALL OF THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

I have developed a keen sense of centering justice, emergence, decolonizing, interconnectedness. I view the world, our bodies and our Work as emergent as we create new, just ways of thriving. I can help you dance with the cycles and flow in your life, helping you deepen your leadership capacities from this space of integration and interconnectedness too.

  • I was the first Latine Vice-Mayor of my city, I learned to become comfortable being a first and only in the room, taking the opportunity to hold the door for more BIPOC leaders to enter.
  • With decades of tech experience as a web deva and political activist and organizer, I co-founded the Tech and Telecomm Committee for my city.
  • Between 2009-2013 I was appointed to serve on two San Francisco Bay Area government boards where I enacted progressive social and environmental policy for approximately 11 million people, including shifting stigma to sway my colleagues on the Board of Directors to fund the suicide net for the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • In 2011-12, I even ran for congress.

A little more about me…

  • I was raised and bore children on the the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Coast and Central Valley Miwok (colonized as Petaluma, CA) and Nisenan (colonized as Sacramento and Fair Oaks, CA), past, present and future. I also write, work and live in the highland jungle, the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Matagalpa, past present and future, in what is known as Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
  • I also hold a Masters degree in Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness from the California Institute of Integral Studies (with a focus on Integral Ecology) and a B.A. in Gender + Women Studies from Mills College, and a Permaculture Design Certificate. PLUS, I am Fellow of the Leadership Institute for Just and Resilient Communities.
  • I’m a permaculturalist, I love growing herbs and plant dyes for the bees and butterflies (I wrote book on it), and making alchemical herbal medicines.
  • I like to spin yarn, and avidly collect indigenous textiles. I ran an ethical pashmina business in Nepal.
  • My Spanish is terrible, and French is a lingering memory, thanks to my parents assimilation. But I speak several coding languages and Astrology and I’m learning my Indigenous ancestors languages, K’iche Mayan and Runasimi (Quechua).
  • At a mighty 4’10”, I’m a light-skinned, Mestiza Indigiqueer (Mayan, French and Scottish), vision-impaired and neuro-distinct woman. As a survivor of significant childhood trauma, (ACE-Q score is 10+6), my life’s work is infused with JEDI activism (Justice-centering, Emergence, Decolonizing, Interconnecting).

Here’s what all of this means for you:

I have developed a keen sense of centering justice, emergence, decolonizing, interconnectedness. I view the world, our bodies and our Work as emergent as we create new, just ways of thriving. I can help you dance with the cycles and flow in your life, helping you deepen your leadership capacities from this space of integration and interconnectedness too.

All that to say…

I weave together Anti-Racist Decolonial Feminist business practices (this is NOT white woman feminism), initiated leadership strategies and the best of neuroscience together to help Edgewalkers like you decolonize and reclaim your time, skip the burnout and liberate your Flow.


This dyadic process isn’t prescriptive. You’re not learning what worked for me. Cultivate your rituals around how Flow works for you, your cycles, your biology, while unlearning the colonial systems that disrupt your natural states of being. Why? Because Biology scales (h/t Steven Kotler).

And when your biology scales… so does your impact.

My Ancestors

I am the mother of Zara and Zoë, daughter of Lauri, granddaughter of Beatriz and Emma, great-granddaughter of Rose, Maria Dolores, Glacel Helen, Luta Maude, Rebecca, Victoria and Maria Rosario.

Beatriz Withrow de Lunar

Land Lineage:

My ancestors are from France by way of Quebec (1600s) and Baja California (1800s) to Carmichael, CA; Scotland by way of the 13 colonies (including serving in the Revolutionary War, Wars against Indigenous, and the Confederate War -deserted), to Oklahoma and then Fresno, CA; and from the Andes (middle to late pre-classic BCE), by way of Central America to Perupecha settlements in Michoacán, Mexico (500-150 BCE) to Santa Barbara, CA (1910s).


I was raised and bore children on the the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Coast and Central Valley Miwok (colonized as Petaluma, CA) and Nisenan (colonized as Sacramento and Fair Oaks, CA), past, present and future.


I also write, work and live in the highland cloudforest of the traditional, unceded and stolen lands of the Matagalpa, past present and future, in what is known as Matagalpa, Nicaragua, with the two-fingered sloths, boas, and toucan tribe above me and a German Shepherd, salchicha dog and torty cat at my feet.


I do not own land.

Climate Lineage

“…so we can thrive with a planet in transition.”


My feelings are that I want to ground our lives in consideration of not just surviving but thriving. When Google invented gmail I made my email thrivalist because so many people I knew were survivalists, permies, etc. It came out of discussion with Elizabeth Sahtouris’s class back in the day at CIIS. Surviving isn’t the goal, thriving is the goal. Thriving requires relationship with Earth.


I come at climate chaos a bit different than many because of an innate trust that despite the human destruction, the planet, Gaia, Mama-pacha, Earth will prevail and adapt — even without us or this current iteration of “us” humans. I’ve resolved my fear of death, my lack of future blood lines after my children because I’m not alone in that. Earth will thrive and so many of us are the last of our future ancestors as the population will decrease from the chaos.


And so I want to reflect that in relationship building with the planet in my work. And also I’m always seeking to de-center the human and re-center the basins of relation as Brock Dolman so eloquently describes the ecosystems contained by watersheds. Humans caused this, but the extinction of life right now is 6th greatest in Earth’s 4.5 Billion years.


It’s also why I call it a land lineage rather than an acknowledgement. The places I’ve lived are a part of me, they wired my neural networks. They literally made up my cells and ability to transfer (copy) my DNA into the future in the foods that were grown there, the air I breathed, the water I drank, and the energy that was consumed to keep me warm.


So my Land Lineage is a both/and reflection of the people that lived on the land for millennia before me, now and after me in the future and the lands. It’s an affirmation that both the land and the Indigenous will remain despite the colonization.


So my thoughts are that a climate statement must include the land where you are and vice versa. It’s intertwined.
