Birthing Body as Earth

An offering in service to rebalancing the whole.

Body as Earth is the meeting of ourselves as nature. From that meeting place, may we unfold into the deep belonging that we all seek.

We are witness of the climate collapse, the violent forces of our humanity and collective shadow acting upon the earth – recognising that this violence is linked to capitalist – colonialist conditionings; especially the prioritisation of profit over planet. 

Body as Earth aims to counter this narrative through intentional experiences that can transform our worldview by working with the body, mind, and soul.

By changing our perspective, we can change the way we live, and by changing the way we live, we can change the way we work and impact others.

The initial inception of Body as Earth was a small weekly gathering of women in 2019 sharing healing practices together. Those initial sessions provided a fertile training ground for what Body as Earth is today, being rooted in a politics of care. 

These digital spaces are a fragmentary node of the broader Body as Earth. We are more active on the grounds than in the digital realm – working directly with native healers, being an indigenous ally, and living in a way that centers earth-based wisdom.

2019 Gathering

Body as Earth is intended to live beyond the I.

I owe all I am to all those around me,
especially the beyond human.

I give thanks to the brutality of cities for shaping my undying love for nature.

I honour the moths that have slept beside me to keep me company.

I welcome the ancestors and allies that guide the path.

I notice the signs and omens along the way, no matter how small.

As we walk further into the destruction of climate collapse, and confront the powers that refuse to yield to the earth as a living force – I will to deepen my practice and my prayer.

Thank you for listening and for being here.
I appreciate you and this space of shared stories. I honour this relational web we continue to weave together.

“Cellular intelligence, the wisdom of the body, is intimately connected to the conscious and unconscious processes of mind and emotions. 

The body can reveal the secret, hidden, or forgotten areas of experience. 

As we learn to listen to the body in its constantly transforming expressions, we learn to know ourselves more deeply.”

Body as vessel for transformation.

Earth as an ancient ancestor.

Body as Earth is the meeting of ourselves as nature.

As a response to the climate crisis, Chloe hopes this space will offer humanity applied interconnection.

Within the creative labour of multi-disciplinary fields; from building a community, to programming for spaces centred in collective care; to designing soulful retreats; Chloe works with the pillars of racial diversity, inclusivity in community, localised support, and equitable and imaginative futures.

She moves from a deep willpower and a soulful belief that intentional creative labour rooted in harmonic balance of all elements and peoples involved will be worthy, meaningful, and impactful.
