COSMIC SISTER ADVOCACY WORK

Educational advocacy is a core concept in our approach to supporting ethical evolution. We have several interconnected advocacy projects in place that help spread the word about good work being done by women (and occasionally men) around the world. Our advocacy work includes the following projects that we've broken up into several main sub-sets, with plenty of cross-over and cross-pollination content.

PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM

Around the world, an exciting Psychedelic Renaissance is rapidly evolving in the mind + body + spirit wellness arena. Women’s voices in the movement are under-represented, even though they are doing important work helping to educate the public honestly about the risks and benefits of psychedelics and the responsible use of sacred plants in transformational consciousness-expanding work with sacred plants such as ayahuasca, cannabis, peyote, and psilocybin mushrooms.

Psychedelic Feminism wants to see more powerful stories about women’s frontline work in this pioneer field to the forefront of public conversation, and is helping to promote a healthy gender balance in this important, exciting frontier mind/body/spirit wellness work.

Our quartet of interconnected educational advocacy projects are; Cosmic Sisters of Cannabis and Cosmic Sister Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance educational initiatives, and the Cosmic Sister Plant Spirit Grant. The Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices Award supports individuals who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field of psychedelics (and cannabis) to strengthen their visibility in the community. We also offer Cosmic Sister Special Talent Scholarships for outstanding women to explore unique educational opportunities.

CITIZENS OF GAIA

Our love for this beautiful planet—and for the all the extraordinary living beings we share it with—inspires and sustains our passion for celebrating and protecting the diverse miracle of Life.

We develop and place articles and interviews with leaders and rising stars in true sustainability and natural products and curate product and services showcase features and articles about purpose-driven for-profit and non-profit entities, sustainable trade, earth-friendly and ethical practices for a variety of quality venues (preference given to women's expert voices and women-run businesses and organizations). Our breakout pages include Natural Products, Stewards of Tomorrow, and LifeSTYLE + Sustainability.

Through Love Warrior interviews, we educate the public about respectful cultural exchange + preservation + evolution through sustainable plant medicine trade and Indigenous arts, spiritual and medicine traditions and support Indigenous women and in-sync nonprofits that help Indigenous communities protect the environment they steward. We also directly support individual indigenous women and girls through this project.

Cosmic Sister cares deeply about the Earth. Our environmental educational advocacy projects include Women + Wilderness + Wildlife educational initiative spreads the word about the state of wilderness, wildlife and animal rights, with preference given to promoting women's expert voices on the frontline of this work. We promote organizations working to inform and protect as well as individuals and businesses that support those organizations by placing, pitching, producing and publishing quality narratives and interviews of experts and cultural influencers about “wilderness as habitat” issues such as plastic pollution’s effect on marine life and aggressive destruction of the world’s rainforests. We promote the work of experts who are defending the rights of threatened, endangered and critically endangered species.

ANCESTOR MEDICINE
