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.
Topic – Love Warriors: Healing the Masculine-Feminine Split
Healing into our wholeness involves involves recognizing and integrating aspects of ourselves that have been split off, held safely in our unconscious and our bodies until we’re ready to encounter them with compassionate awareness. Every culture defines acceptable behavior and characteristics, and by doing so relegates the unacceptable to the territory of taboo.
In most Western industrialized cultures there is an overvaluing of particular masculine characteristics and an undervaluing of many feminine ones. Recovering from this imbalance requires us all to become conscious of the ways the feminine has been devalued and exiled within us, and to encounter the specific suffering that this split has caused, both individually and collectively.
I whole-heartedly invite you to me in an exploration of this important and timely topic!
We need to highlight the role women play in perpetuating and sustaining a patriarchal culture so that we will recognize patriarchy as a system women and men support equally, even if men receive more rewards from that system. Dismantling and changing patriarchal culture is work that men and women must do together. Clearly, we cannot dismantle a system as long as we engage in collective denial about its impact on our lives.
Our work of love should be to reclaim masculinity and not allow it to be held hostage to patriarchal domination. There is a place for the masculine in a nondominator culture. ~~ bell hooks

- Feb 8 – Engaging the Sacred: Ritual and Activism
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
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
