Before we could read or write, women told stories. “Old wives tales,” oral history, and passing the talking stick at circle all speak to the way women shared information. Today, many groups similar to ours gather for community, celebration and learning. The desire to gather is in our DNA and it wants to come alive again because when women gather, history is not lost, consciousness and healing happen, and the medicine of culture changes from toxic to tonic. We’ll look at some of the history of women’s stories, sample the literature, and some unique ways we can work with and share story for healing, direction and clarity.
Following the discussion, we will take a shamanic drum journey to allow each woman to work on personal issues with her Spirit guides. Please dress comfortably, and feel free to bring drums, rattles or other instruments, along with a journal for recording any insights received on your journey. Doors open at 7:00 pm and close at 7:30 pm, and ends at 10:00 pm. Please RSVP to ensure your space. Suggested donation of $10.00 per person to cover the space rental. Come join us for a fun and powerful exploration!
We will be meeting in the Serena Room at Casa de Luz. Some backjacks, folding chairs, pillows and yoga blankets will be available. If possible, you might want to bring your own pillow or blanket to help make sure that you're comfy during the circle, especially if you plan to journey lying down on the floor. You might also want to bring a light wrap or sweater in case the AC is acting up! :) Several of us will be having dinner at 6 PM in Casa's restaurant, so feel free to join us for dinner before the circle! (Reminder: It is OK to park in the City lots across the street in spite of the "no parking" signs posted there. The City has an agreement with Casa, at least for now.)
