Call to the Mothers

Regenerating Lives through Reimagining Possibilities

About


The Dark Births The New


Necessity is the mother of invention

Desperate times call for radical solutions. The mental illness and addiction ‘situation’ is rising to an epidemic level. We aren’t going to quote causes nor statistics because everyone knows of at least one tragic story that is unfolding right now. The pain, hopelessness and powerlessness are overwhelming to those who are experiencing these conditions but also those who are caring for them.

Not only are the current systems broken and beyond capacity, but they are further traumatizing many who come into them. And there are those who are just falling through the cracks.

But the solutions exist all around us. A Call to the Mothers is a deep cry to put these solutions to work. ‘Mothers’ represents people who put care first and life as the bottom line, people who see love and nourishment as the foundational soil for any garden we want to grow

It begins with the belief that those who are deemed to have a mental illness and addiction are in fact the pioneers of a new era of wellbeing whose purpose is to clean up the widespread and deeply systemic intergenerational and collective traumas so we can co-create a better world for all.

The change is actually very simple – an opportunity for those who are experiencing mental illness and addiction to reimagine and regenerate their lives. These brave souls sit at the centre of a diverse ecosystem of resources that include indigenous wisdom/shamanic practices and the new brain sciences, ancient practices and state of the art technology, releasing intergenerational trauma and hidden potential.

Call to the Mothers aims to be a vital player in the regenerative movement in which life and the wellbeing of all is the beacon for action. It begins with a Taste of Wonderland.

TASTE OF WONDERLAND

 

Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland

We are on a journey to clearly see the current reality facing those with mental illness and addiction, and to uncover possibilities that have been deemed unimaginable. We have chosen the story of Alice in Wonderland as a framework that inspires the imagination and curiosity – vital tools for reimagining lives.

This process of reimagining begins with the Hallway of Doors, where Alice struggled to get through the doors. Our Doors help to identify the struggles in the form of cracks and breakdowns that are currently happening in the mental health and community systems and in our lives. The cracks and breakdowns open up the breakthroughs and possibilities for the new.

The next step in the process surfaced out of Alice’s incessant crying at not being able to get through the doors which ended up causing the Pool of Tears. It is here that we explore what we are grieving and need to let go of. The grieving process is vital. It is here that innovation is born.

Once we have identified the indicators of change in the cracks and our pain points, we are ready to explore ‘what’s new’ by tapping into exciting new arenas of discovery — the microbiome, epigenetics, the biofield, equine and sound therapies etc. This is our Looking Glass, which as in Alice in Wonderland, is an alternative reality. These aren’t conceptual ideas; they are living innovations that reveal a whole new vista radiating what’s possible for our expansion, healing, and a much needed ray of hope for the journey ahead.

What makes the Taste of Wonderland truly unique, is the next step: The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Here is where the ‘magic’ happens through the blending of ingredients from the Hall of Doors (cracks and breakdowns) The Pool of Tears (Pain points); and the Looking Glass (WOW ideas) into new concepts and opportunities. From here a new paradigm of wellbeing is emerging and concepts that are ready for testing and piloting.
