Come! Sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, come to be nourished, held, and inspired by the community and wisdom of this Divine Sisterhood!

Come to rest your body on this land, bathe in its waters, dance and sing with the fire, and listen to the trees. Let us learn from one another, let us listen and share, and through this multi-generational collection of life experience, let us pass on the wisdom and gift it to our children.

Let us move together, diving deep into the layers and wilderness of the soul, let us explore vulnerable territory while being held in light, and let us dive deep into the richness of infinite love, expansion, and brilliance!

2:30-3:45pm ~ Choose among these Beautiful Soul Sister Sharing’s:

LOGAN Brookbank ~ So much of our limiting beliefs are programmed within us from an early age. To become the people we desire, in our most loving compassionate selves, we must make a leap of faith! When we are naturally transitioning (from jobs, relationships, hormones, new life experiences) it is the best time to have conscious mind and action to become these heart centered radiant beings! Logan will guide you through a mindfulness meditation and then lead discussion on breaking the paradigms that hold women back. Let’s empower ourselves to flourish into the most vibrant, loving beings we can be.

MOLLY Murray ~ a passionate mother, doula, and childbirth educator shares the power of SHIFTing perspective, finding PURPOSE,  and using the POWER of SONG, GRATITUDE and INTENTION, as a way to grow through difficult times and use the past as a CATALYST for a better FUTURE. Growing up surrounded by death, addiction, and a family history of mental illness, Molly is working on a way to break those chains and find a way OUT for herself and future generations.  She shares how continual connection with women in community can help every woman find her VOICE in any stage of life.  

JUDY & BERNITA ~ Stepping into and Welcoming the Wise Women Crone energy into our lives at every age!  Embrace the aging process and recognize the gems of becoming the elder of the tribe.
