The Sacred Feminine in Native American Spirituality

The Sacred Feminine in Native American Spirituality
Featuring Shirley Brim
Shaman Practitioner

Fee: $15 on-line, $20 at the door

Early Native American cultures often revered the feminine. Matriarchal cultures were common, where family’s property and inheritance followed the mother’s lineage. Their spiritual connection with the natural world (animism) gave natural reverence to the Mother as the source of all life. While animism saw the sacred in all of nature, rather than in god and goddess figures, strong women such as White Buffalo Calf Woman and Grandmother Spider are central figures in Native spiritual traditions.

In the mythology of the Central Plains tribes, early indigenous cultures tended toward matriarchy and a more balanced culture between the masculine and feminine. The history of the feminine in Native American culture is quite different than in the British Isles and Europe, with much less oppression and marginalization of women until the arrival of Catholic missionaries and Christianity. As a result, the sacred feminine retained a position of honor and respect, and of balance, with the sacred masculine.

Come hear more about these and other aspects of the sacred feminine in Native American culture and spirituality.
