All Hearts on Deck virtual sittings are a deep collective inquiry into topics pertaining to awakened service. They are geared towards mature Trillium practitioners (including mentors and teachers) who are ready to express their awakened brilliance in service to all beings.
Awakened activism is action on behalf of the wellness of all beings, sourced in the love and trust arising from a conscious, embodied union with all of Life. Awakened activism becomes most fully expressed as spiritual, social, and ecological awakening mature in an individual.
~~ Margit Bantowsky
Topic – Body of Love: Embodied Awakening in Action
Industrialized culture, deeply disconnected from body and soul, values reason and believes in control. But the mind alone is incapable of getting us out of the perilous predicaments facing us today. Reason will not save us.
These fleshy, vulnerably, imperfect bodies when saturated with consciousness and rooted in radical inter-beingness, can become portals to a very different and much needed kind of intelligence. When deeply and consciously connected we can listen for and receive the seeds of action – prompts of Being – Life gifts us with, tailored specifically to our uniqueness, inviting us to liberate our love into the world. These tender soul-seeds of love-in-action defy logic and require reverence, and can be crushed by our dissociative, hypermasculine impulses.
Sacred Seeds of Divine WillThe raw silk of those low voices,murmuring mysterious magicjust below earshot,require a different kind of listeningfor words spoken in a deeper,more primal tongue.Bring your empty cupto the hidden grottoand fill it with wet murmurings.Raise this brimming chaliceto your lips and drink deeplyof these rumbling, patternedwaters.Let their secrets wash you clean of conceitand grandiosity,and ignite Sacred Seedsof Divine Will.Your purpose,your meaning,your fulfillmentis in these given seeds’flourishing.They are not “your” seeds –they came to you from elsewhere,they were gifted into yourcare.You are a gardenerwhose job is to bring seedsto bloom and fruit,to grow into their magnificence,to extend their branches up and outin wide reach,and draw down their roots into dark, rich soil.Be grateful for yourset of seeds,cherish your small handful,and by devotionlet Love pour through youinto formthis way.Tend your garden,and let the Goddessdo the rest.~~Margit Bantowsky(Note: The first line, “The raw silk of those low voices,” comes from a poem by Don Freas, called After Dark)
Join us in an inquiry into embodiment, awakening, and action. Meditation and gazing are followed by a topic presentation, which sets the stage for deep, collective inquiry. Here are some questions we might contemplate together:
- What are some forms of embodied intelligence?
- How does your body speak to you?
- What interferes with hearing “the raw silk of those low voices”?
- How can we nurture the Sacred Seeds of Divine Will we’ve been gifted with?
- In what ways do you still feel separate?
- What prevents you from trusting your “seeds”?

Margit Bantowsky has been active in the Trillium path since 2011, and as a Trillium Awakening teacher is dedicated to helping people experience fundamental peace at their core and to delight in and express their unique brilliance. Margit has a private Transformative Coaching practice and offers workshops on creativity, leadership, and personal development. She is passionate about cultivating social and environmental dimensions of awakening.
Margit offers online group experiences for participants pursuing and integrating embodied awakening. She is a very skilled individual who side-steps the traditional role of teacher/instructor for the more artful role of “attuned facilitator.” She asks participants to explore intelligent and philosophically rich questions relevant to awakened life and then draws out each individual’s unique perspective to coalesce the greater wisdom of the group mind. Her groups feel very safe while sustaining a vital, evolutionary edge. I find Margit’s monthly online groups to be profoundly relevant to my Awakened life and I give them my highest recommendation.” ~ Dean Mott
