I would like to salute the photographer Bert Stern who passed this week.
The Gathering of Grandmothers was a wonderful success. We met in retreat to explore the past few years and share the challenges, sorrows, healings and wisdom gained from our many personal experiences. The public were invited to attend several events to hear the wisdom from Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala, from Australia, Columbia and Hawaii.
The people of Ojai showed themselves to be the loving and wise people that they are! All the nourishment was donated: the time, grace and energy it took to gather, prepare and cook the meals were all donated; local farms and orchards, health food shop, Rainbow Bridge, donated their produce; the beautiful young people created high vibrational food and loving atmosphere along with Margaret, Lynn and Malina who donated – incredible generosity! – their Casa de la Luna. We want to recognize Maxima, our Hawaiian Healer of Light who flew all the way here to offer her healing session to raise funds to help make this event come to fruition. Without all of these gifts, and without the help of Spirit, we would never have been able to make this happen. So much love and blessings to all of you from us Grandmothers: Bilawara, Elizabeth, Laura, Gail, Nancy, Cristina, Lani, Jill.
We will be making available the wisdom coming from our retreat in greater detail. But here is a taste:
It all comes to LOVE
There are no more teachers – we are all students and teachers together
Listen to the young ones for in their words we often hear the voices of our ancestors
More exciting news and events are coming, including our new location for events and meetings …. Stay tuned!
