Alchemy of Womxn Manifesto
~I commit to being honest and straight in my communications and interactions with other womxn.
~I commit to treating myself and other womxn with respect and loving-kindness.
~I commit to walking gently and with awareness upon the Earth, which means being responsible for all my trash, cleaning up after myself, being conscious and aware of what needs tending around me, helping out with the use of composting toilets and consuming less.
~I commit to taking responsibility for myself, which looks like self-care, healthy boundaries, loving touch if needed and asking for support when I need it.
~I commit to asking for alone time when I need it and understanding that it means nothing personal to any other womxm.
~I commit to listening deeply towards understanding, not responding.
~I commit to keeping what other womxn share confidential and not gossiping about it.
~I commit to using words in an uplifting and encouraging manner only when engaged in conversation with other womxn.
~I commit to celebrating another’s unique beauty and gifts, which means being open and curious about other walks of life, races, orientations and lifestyles.
~I commit to being willing to look at internal racism and prejudice honestly. If confronted about an issue that has brought offence to another womxn, especially around race, I will apologize and seek understanding of the offence as testament of my commitment to improving myself as well as to prevent another unintentional offence towards another womxn.
~I commit to seeing the greatness that is in another as I see it in myself.
~I commit to not holding myself back to fit in and in supporting other womxn in doing the same.
~I commit to honouring the sacredness of the container that I am co-creating with other womxn.
