Green Women 2022-2023 Programs
The world will be saved by the western woman. – The Dalai Lama
Green Women Free Monthly Zoom Calls
The world needs women – to lead, to teach, to create, to thrive, to be empowered, to be healthy, to be fully engaged in finding the solutions to the many challenges that our planet, our nation, and our communities are facing.
Healthy Women Healthy Earth is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering women to take charge of their personal health and well-being through programs that teach and promote self-care, healthy lifestyles and connection to Mother Earth. We are currently in our 4th year of offering programs.
You are invited to participate: Women who care about the planet, the climate crisis and everything that links to it are invited to join Helene Van Manen for a monthly Zoom call where you can learn more about what is unfolding around us. Led by Helene, you will get information and support for digesting the challenges of living on the planet today. The design of this program is based on the feedback that we received about women needing more support to cope with larger issues, and also how to intentionally live Earth-centered values. This call will fulfill a need that many women have expressed – the desire to have a community of concern for regular information and support.
Choose from 2 monthly calls:
Daytime: 1st Wednesday of each month at 2pm EDT
Evening: 1st Wednesday at 9pm EDT (Adjust for your time zone.)
Monthly calls take place Sept 2022 – May 2023
The zoom number is: https://zoom.us/j/7196714181
There is no charge for the calls. Come to one or all. Together we are building a community of Green Women. Let’s use the power of word of mouth and invite other women that share our concerns. We will explore timely topics and feature guest speakers.
The program also includes the optional resource of a Facebook page for Green Women, which I moderate. The Facebook page is a place to share resources of interest to our group.

Green Mommas and Grandmothers Circle
co-led by Helene Van Manen and Sunder Michelle
Women with children struggle with the challenge of how to bring Earth-centered values into their daily lives. I hear women tell me this all the time, so I am pleased to offer a Green Mommas & Grandmothers Coaching Circle and you are invited!
The purpose of this group is to have a monthly place to share your hopes and dreams for raising children who love The Great Mother and are connected to the Earth.
Together we will explore ways to bring more awareness to your role as an Earth-centered mother and how to help support your family system to live green Earth-centered values. Grandmothers are invited to this group too so they can learn how to actively bring Nature education into their grandmothering.
We will explore the stressors and concerns of the climate crisis. You will learn ways of coping, including the “Active Hope” process as designed by deep ecologist Joanna Macy.
The calls are designed to be stand alone session-by-session calls and together we will build a community of Green Women raising children and teens who care about the Earth. There is no charge for the calls but your donation is greatly appreciated.
