Every quarter I give 10% of proceeds from my monthly online community
The Rebel Hearts Club to one of four charities.
Find out more about the Amazon Rainforest Conservancy and why I donate here.
The Amazon Rainforest Conservancy (ARC) is a registered Canadian Charity working to protect threatened tropical rainforest habitats in the Peruvian Amazon to conserve and restore the biodiversity of species and ecosystems for the benefit of future generations.
I first heard about this vitally needed charity through my friend Neil who runs plant medicine retreats and quite rightly sees the importance of giving back to the plants that serve us. The ARC currently owns and protects 1,416 hectares and is looking to expand upon that. They are a volunteer only organisation and employ no paid staff. The money generated also goes into research and education, with plans to build schools within the local communities, so that the next generation can learn about alternative forms of employment, away from mining and logging.
I have chosen to support the ARC because my own experiences working with plant medicine were part of my journey to discovering Menstruality and healing my period problems. It's also because I believe that restoring the rainforest and improving our connection to the natural world is an important part of the healing and restoration of the earth that we need. As I speak about so often, the yin yang balance is completely out in our own bodies and on the planet we inhabit. Repairing what has been destroyed or overrun by too much yang energy is the first step towards healing.
