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.

Topic – Goddess Rising: The Necessity of the Feminine for All Genders
Once upon a long time ago, early human civilizations valued highly the sacred power to give and nurture life. We honored life and death, and the cycles of regeneration. We honored the power, sensuality, and mysteries of our own bodies, as well as the body of the Earth and all her precious (our fellow) inhabitants.
Whole-being realization invites us to consciously occupy our bodies, and consciously relate to life in a radically new way. However, all genders of body-soul-minds have been deeply conditioned to devalue the Feminine and her life-giving gifts of cycles and timing, sensuality, embodiment, compassion, nurturing, and deep relatedness.
This is not to dismiss the necessity of the healthy masculine! However, we’ve all been subject to the painful, harmful distortions of patriarchal, dominator society for thousands of years, and perhaps some re-balancing is in order…
I’d like to suggest that not only is reclamation of the Feminine central to the embodied realization process (before, during, and after awakening, and for all genders), it can be understood as central to the project of reconfiguring humanity to live in a life-enhancing rather than life-destructive relationship with our beloved Mother Planet.
Dive Into the DanceThe Sun’s radiance would be invisibleif not for the darkness surrounding her.…Love the rub,delight in friction,rejoice in opposites –no one thing gets the final sayexcept Life itself.…And we,Homo sapiens sapiens,get to see and know and enjoythis singular danceof duality,of this-not-that,of up and down,of male and female,of inside and outside,of sweet and bitter,of soft and hard,of joy and sorrow.…Who knows what tomorrowwill bring?…One thing is certain:the dance will continue,the pendulums will swing,old forms will dieas new forms emerge.…Life will explore, evolve,discover dead ends,and promising possibilities.…What holds you back fromdiving in,all the way in,totally in?…Go for it!Surrender, submerge,skinless and willing,into this magnificent,miraculous,dance of matter.…Nothing more alive and fulfillingthan surrendering your entire Beinginto the Flow of It All.Ready when you are!…~~Margit Bantowsky
Join us in a shared inquiry into the Feminine. Here are some questions we might contemplate together:
- What aspects of the Feminine might be important for women to reclaim?
- What aspects of the Feminine might be important for men to reclaim?
- What aspects of the Feminine might be important for non-binary people to reclaim?
- What interferes with our ability to feel, embrace, honor the Feminine?
- How can we consciously cultivate the power of the Feminine in ourselves?
- How can we consciously cultivate the power of the Feminine in our communities/ organizations?

- Sept 12 – Deep Surrender: Going Beyond Greenlighting
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
