Hummingbird Water Women

The 1000 Hummingbird Vision:

"Just close your eyes and you'll see it,
Just cross the bridge and it's there,
Open your heart, that's the dangerous part,
the other world's there if you dare.

It's never been story or legend,
It's part of who we are,
It's never been myth or invention
We're the one's who go drifting so far..."
(excerpt from Julia Cameron's Avalon song) 

A People whose Voice is not being heard in just one contaminated groundwater situation;

Ohlone Woman in this state of distress gets buzzed (literally) by one little hummingbird who will not leave until she gets that there is something powerful and empowering to be done about the Water, and that women have a central role to play in what will be an utterly transformational Journey. This epiphany was duly recognized by her elders and ultimately instituted 1000 Hummingbirds Women's Council, to host initially, 4 consecutive years of women and girls coming together for Water.

And so the women and girls come, bringing their cross-cultural, inter-generational wisdom. In this extraordinary milieu, of story, song and dreaming, something is born anew.

 "Another world is not only possible, she's on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing."
Arundhati Roy

The mandate of the Council is explicit: CLEAN WATER and well-being for all; no exceptions; Everybody counts, everybody matters. {“All Our Relations”} - How we move mountains has everything to do with the magic that occurs when women of passion and courage converge in a milieu imbued with sacred intent.

Tipping Point Goal: $1,500

Total Funding Goal: $3,000

Hosting upwards of 400 women (our guesstimate for 2012 based on previous years) - in an open country setting, guided by cradle-to-cradle principles; composting and recycling everything that would be otherwise regarded as a throw-away waste stream. Funds are for infra-structure rentals, kitchen staples, trucks & gas. Hummingbird girl
