The Sacred Earth Foundation's Women's Initiations Program is fun, intense and transformative. The ceremonies, traditions, songs and prayers from indigenous cultures worldwide fed my soul on the deepest levels. Pati's unflinching belief in miracles and the power of the human spirit buoys the group throughout the entire process. It will lovingly and joyously push you beyond your perceived limitations, guaranteed! Take the leap! -E.K.
Our meeting in January is an introduction to Ancient Paths to Women's Initiations. The actual process begins in February but it is important to attend the introduction before you make a commitment.
This is a six month commitment of one weekend per month
Patricia Turner is a biological anthropologist committed to sharing the wisdom of our indigenous brothers and sisters. She has 15 years of experience with ceremony, ritual, sweat lodge and the healing work of our elders. This is a deep commitment on the part of those who wish to feel a true life transformation. It is offered to women ages 18 and up and the process will lead to a vision quest during the final month of our work.
This work is not done according to one tradition but is inclusive of many traditions including Dagara of Africa, Huichol of Mexico, traditions from Bolivia, Peru and Guatemala. It is not about rites of passage in the traditional sense but about realizing your own immensity within. Please know that this will entail homework between our gatherings that will help you to shed old habits that no longer serve you. Experience the power of forgiveness, the power of Mother Earth and Father Sun and the beauty of the women who will participate with you. Re-member your connections with all that is!
The cost of the program is $125 per month for 5 months and $200 for the month of your vision quest. The introduction is free of charge but donations are greatly appreciated. Please contact me if this is truly beyond your means as I wish for everyone who is deeply called to have this opportunity.
The dates for all gatherings are as follows so you can keep your calendar clear: Except for vision quest we gather on Saturday beginning at 1:00pm and end on Sunday at 4:00pm each month.
July 25-28 beginning at 5pm on the 25th and vision quest 26-28 ending at appx. 4:00pm.
