While at Heart Stone I was able to experience some beautiful Shamanic spirit journeying, which gave me a lot of wisdom and nourishment at the time. Additionally, through that six-month process of herbal school, I was surrounded by Wise Women of all shapes and was able to learn about my own wisdom and power and about the beautiful feminine and masculine balance of the universe. I really can't understate the importance of that experience to me, since it truly changed my life and my perception of the world, of women, and of my own self. Since then, I have kept up my own personal spiritual practice, but have sorely missed the community of Wise Women that I had in Upstate New York and am now seeking that in Austin. Your group seems like a beautiful place to connect with that community here and I would love to meet all of you and join in your practice.
I'm an Herbalist, so I'm interested very much in Earth-based spiritual practice such as connecting and journeying with plants and/or animals. I've recently become more interested in connecting with and learning about various Goddesses from various cultures, and "Goddess" as a whole, and I'm interested in group meditative practice surrounding those things. I also enjoy dialogue and discussion about women's issues such as personal health and empowerment.
