What is natural time? What if the nature of time is a spiral?
Why does the moon matter? Why does menstruation really matter?
How are people individually and collectively influenced by the cycles of nature? How can we integrate this knowledge to grow as individuals, and come together as a society?
These are some of the questions that fascinate me. In 2005, I conceived of the Moon Cycle Timepiece, a timekeeping tool that anyone could use to connect with the vital forces of the moon, menstruation, and a spiral interpretation of time. As I bring my work into the world, I know that beyond offering a tool, I want to create a space for conversation, and a resource for change.
Moontime Rising is the expression of my dedication to moving forward the integration of the masculine and feminine, a reintegration of humanity with the planet, and a co-creative society in which we all have the power to thrive and realize our highest potential.
I am seeking to cultivate though direct personal experience a greater collective appreciation for these fundamental aspects of our humanity. To encourage respectful and resourceful dialogue, I will strive to create a space in which people from a variety of backgrounds and experience can find commonality in connecting with the temporal and physical nature of life on this earth.
I look forward to lively discussion and informed dialogue. I would rather expand the center than polarize, and foster mutual support rather than estrangement. I hope to collectively glean insight and inspiration for us all to grow in our own vital rhythms, (re)connect with our earthly selves, and build sustainable communities through continued dialogue and action.
