About this interview:

How do we flourish potential and change within our community?

“Let’s discover together all that we are, all that we are becoming, and all that is possible.” Amisha Ghadiali

We are emerging from a nourishing hiatus with a new name and new offerings, and are welcoming you back with a special episode; a collective message from our team.

Since we started this period of reflection evolving our vision for what the ‘The Future Is Beautiful’ might become, our team of femme has organically grown to hold all that we hope to unfold. From Britain to South Africa to Turtle Island, in this episode we will introduce ourselves sharing some of our deeper yearnings for the future.

We speak of our origins, how and why we connected with this podcast and with Amisha, our inspiring podcast host. We share which previous episodes inspired and touched us profoundly, for some of us igniting a call to activism, for some laying bare new and raw perspectives, and for some of us new journeys of embodying more of nature’s call. We share words and impressions that still resound today recalling episodes where we heard from Claire Dubois, Alnoor Ladha, Nasreen Sheikh and Tiokasin Ghosthorse; episodes which sparked our imaginations and stirred the deeper layers of our hearts in new ways.

We reveal our personal ‘medicines’ that kept us sane and our joy alive during these challenging pandemic times; for some of us filled with grief, visioning, re-orienting and new born life. We share our visions and yearnings for the future of your wildest dreams, revealing a beautiful chorus of our individual dreams and moments where their paths intertwine.

We reflect on ‘all that we are’, our new name and the offerings we have brought alive during these past months. Our new name celebrates us human beings, worthy as we are – and invites us to evolve into what is possible; the untapped potential that lives inside us. It invites the full power of the more than human world, plants, animals, our ancestors, our future generations.

‘all that we are’ exists to offer a space of sanctuary, where we share podcasts, a place where you can come and be in kind company; a place where you can learn, unlearn and connect to your own wisdom, where we celebrate, explore and deepen our perspective on all that we are, and on all that we are becoming.

“We can activate the codes of the new world in ourselves right now, and become a walking invitation for the emergence of that reality.” Clare Dubois
