Earth Mother

Cultivating Rootedness, Presence, Trust & Belonging

Mother Earth - Earth Mother

Mother Earth.  Gaia. Prithvi Mata.  Pachamama.  Isis. Yemaya.  She goes by many names.  She is the source of life that nourishes us.  She gifts us the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink.  Her body holds our body, and yet, we also hold her within us.

When we root into Mother Earth and reconnect with her cycles and seasons, we reconnect with our own internal cycles and seasons.  When we re-engage with nature, we remember that we are members of an expansive and infinite family of life.  Not only do we begin to see ourselves in nature, but we begin to see nature inside of us.  And we remember we ourselves are nature.   We are natural.  We are instinctual.  We are the living embodiments of Mother Earth.

During this 4 weeks of the Worm Moon, March’s Blue Moon:
  • We’ll explore various ways to grow our rootedness, a deep and nourishing connection to place and time from which presence, trust and belonging arise.   
  • We’ll practice the art of Being, the ability to come home to the body and dance in the present moment.
  • We’ll cleanse, clear and activate the 1st Chakra, the Muladhara or Root Chakra.
  • We’ll reconnect to our instinctual rhythms as embodiments of the Feminine Divine and reflections of the Moon and the Stars, intimately connected to Mother Earth’s Seasons.
  • You’ll be fed, nourished, inspired.
  • You’ll be held in a safe and loving circle of women on the same path of becoming.

About the Pacing & Depth of this Circle:

The movement of this time together will be gentle and easy, truly reflecting the fluid flow of our natural feminine divine essence.  Imagine: Space. Ease. Breathing Room. Slowing Down.  Centering.  There will not be a list for Doing each week, but a variety of invitations to enter into Being, practices that can become integral tools in your life for cultivating Presence. 

Becoming

I sit on a weather worn wooden bench in a garden,
draped from head to knees by a large pale brown prayer shawl
adorned with golden Oms

laced through with shimmering silver threads,

a gift from a grateful yoga student reminding us of our connection.

Nearby stands a homemade beehive
emanating a low hum that floats through the air, a soothing sound
interweaving with the sweet smell of golden grasses warmed by the sun.

To me the bee's buzzing is not the sound of industry but of
unadulterated joy,
like the joy you feel when you slowly, sensually, savor raw honey
with devotion-like attention to
the satiny smooth and gritty crystalline textures,
as you take into your being the sacred life essence
of clover or orange blossoms or honeysuckle.

Or like when you chance upon a clearing in the woods where
a doe and her fawn graze on tender grasses amongst
those adorable tiny white flowers that emerge each year around this same time. 
You know the ones I'm talking about,
with their soft silken petals that bring a smile to your face
because they remind you of everything that is
new and fresh and innocent.
That's it. They look like innocence.

I become drowsy,
allowing the thoughts about everything I'm experiencing to
float like clouds.
I give myself completely to the moment. 
The Witness becomes the Participant.
  The Dancer becomes the Danced.

I taste the sweet nectar in the beehive.
I  feel the golden lifeforce of honey that flows through the center of me.  
Earth’s breath is dancing the flowers. 

Earth’s breath is breathing Me. 
A hawk calls from the sky. 
I soar into spaciousness as
my awareness roots deep into the warm womb of Earth. 
My body becomes Her body. 
Her heartbeat becomes my heart. 
An ancient memory awakens. 
 I sink, surrendering my grasping to what I am, and
rise up in my Becoming. 

~ Toi Lynn Wyle 

What Others Are Saying...

It was both profound and gentle…

I'm writing to thank you for the retreat, Awakening Shakti. I wasn't sure what to expect but felt drawn to your course because of your energy. It was both profound and gentle. Everyone came at different points, different ideas and you accommodated everyone seamlessly. I love that you encouraged everyone to go at their own pace, to take what they needed. Each mediation, each activity, every word and image built this safe sort of cocoon for my own exploration of my own desires and my own journey. Your obvious knowledge of this process made it seem natural and effortless but I know it went so well because of your expertise, hard work and ability to guide the circle. This is no small feat. I've done 2 different online courses in the past few years and none were as awesome as this one. I just didn't get to the same place. But in yours I discovered so much about myself. I actually felt a part of the circle (instead of looking from the outside). I felt the support of you and of the circle of wonderful women and I also felt comfortable to explore my own soul work privately. You allowed things to unfold naturally and gave guidance at just the right times. It was the perfect balance. I've been opened. Thank you, very deep gratitude to you. I look forward to the next!

“With the loving support and guidance of Toi Lynn, I was able to begin my healing journey…”

The Bliss workshop came at a time in my life when I was experiencing a personal loss that was consuming me.  With the loving support and guidance of Toi Lynn, I was able to begin my healing journey and feel the pain in my body begin to melt away.  I am grateful for every moment of yoga practice and the Bliss workshop was a reminder that the road to healing of the mind, body, and spirit is through patience and allowing myself to be.  Shanti (Peace)

The healing begins here.

The healing begins here, and it feels soooo good! Finally. Part of my undoing, and relearning requires a loving, smiling, playful goddess who understands my innermost feminine self, because she too is me. A goddess guru who not only guides but is guided by the Sacred Divine of Feminine Connection! Toi Lynn Wyle is unlike any woman with whom I have blended paths. Not only does she have a beautiful relationship with the earth, but the sky as well! With the day and the night. And the gifts she shares, and the way we grow all together ~ like old vines ~ as she waters us, feeds us, encourages us to keep reaching down deep and up high, is one of the most divine bits of the universe I have ever witnessed. Have I grown up? Yes. Have I grown down? Oh indeed! Still, I have only begun to learn I am complete. Toi Lynn has introduced me to my spirit guides (who knew I had one, much less, many!?) She has played, giggled, cried, listened, she has spoken and taken me on journeys I will never forget. My heart just keeps unfolding, it's endless. Nurtured by the winter retreat, I feel not only a deeper connection to my intuition and place on Mother Earth, but a strong bond between other women. The circle reaches far. It is safe. It's is beautifully nurturing. It is necessary. I am ever grateful to Toi Lynn.

“The retreat was incredible.”

This retreat was incredible and I so enjoyed Toi Lynn. She is facile and deep, but light and fun too. The group of women was loving and powerful, I am so blessed to have been a part of it. I will be doing more with Toi Lynn in the future. I also bought her spray"sacred" and am using it like mad. I really like it 🙂

“I was empowered by the commonality I discovered among all of us.”

As a woman/mother, there is always the hesitation to take a whole day off... and frankly, I don't know why we do that to ourselves! There is something magical in joining 20 women in the middle of their life, not always knowing who they are or what they go through, and offering each other the best we can. Ever been to a place where you don't have to explain, you just feel and "be" with other women? Laugh or feel sad? I truly enjoyed being in silence for 30 min while surrounded with others breathing and reflecting on their being. Respecting each other's space. And then I was empowered by the commonality I discovered among all of us. Why is it we all strive so hard to belong? Why is it that our fear of not being accepted undermines our dreams, our voice and our ambition? All I know now is that next time I feel that insecurity deep inside, I will also remember that 20 other women that weekend wanted to change that unpleasant feeling. I am not alone. Neither are you, if you are willing to share.

“She’s a pioneer.”

So here's the deal about Toi Lynn. She's a pioneer. She's been 10 steps ahead of us the whole way, from opening her yoga studio, to shifting gracefully from psychological counseling into Life coaching, to taking off on a cross-country pilgrimage with her hubby in a tiny trailer. She has spoken a language that many of us haven't understood regarding deities, callings, Spiritual and bodily experiences. She holds an expansive view of Life, leaving no stone unturned. But now is the time for you to connect with Toi Lynn, my friends, because there is a tipping of humanity toward the Light and clearly She has been sent here to lead us.  Having said all of that, she's also just a southern girl who loves her gal pals and can relate effortlessly with anyone and everyone in everyday speak. So reach out to her. Let her respond to you and your inquiries. You'll see. It will be very easy. And you will be renewed.

“A truly masterful yoga teacher.”

Toi Lynn is a truly masterful yoga teacher. It’s been my extreme good fortune to have begun my yoga practice under her guidance, and attending her yin and flow classes are the highlights of each week. Her teaching is transformational on so many levels. She encourages her students to cultivate curiosity, depth, joy, and honesty on the mat; all of which flow naturally into all aspects of my life. I also appreciate the fact that Toi Lynn has a solid understanding of yoga anatomy and teaches wisely and safely; always encouraging us to stay present in our bodies, in each asana, and move in and out of each with focus and intention. Because of Toi Lynn’s love of yoga and commitment to her students, I know what it means to be part of a sangha, a community.  A recent example happened just after the new year, when there were many new students in yin class. There was a lot of talking, restlessness, students coming in at the last minute, and I started to tense up. But then, I remembered it was a safe place, a precious time, another opportunity to be on my mat, in my body, in the community. Toi Lynn acknowledged the agitation in the room and calmly set about to ground us. As if by magic, the class came together, and when it came time for our opening "Om", it resonated with incredible unity and beauty. I loved hearing her blissful sigh when the last notes faded into...

“I truly trust in her healing offerings.”

I have known Toi Lynn since 2003 when I started my yoga journey at her yoga studio in Walnut Creek. This healing and loving place taught me to have a compassionate and deeply loving experience in my body. In her Yoga classes she started me on my journey towards also becoming a healer. I learned that my body was a pathway to wisdom and aliveness when it used to be a battleground of self criticism and shame. My husband and I were able to enjoy a silent retreat in 2011 with her as well. Through the silent retreat Brad and I both learned to listen more deeply to our selves and the world around us. I feel eternally grateful and honored to have known Toi Lynn. She speaks with compassion, honestly, and with deep respect for herself and others. I truly trust in her healing offerings.
