Circle Session

“Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives” 
on Saturday, May 11th, 2013
2:30 – 5:30 PM

Every day we should honor the extraordinary women in our lives.  None of us would be here if it were not for our biological mothers.  Some of us have been saved by our spiritual ones.

We have self-actualizing bonds with sisters by blood or soul. Our daughters are the responsibility of the whole village as the future is alive and bright in them.  While the wives in the community have made unifying covenants that form rich roots that grow blessed families.

Join us as we celebrate, honor and bless our Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives through ritual, music, fun and food.

Women and Men are equally encouraged to attend.

The Peoples Monastery provides a safe space where all are welcome. This is a place for urban and nature dwellers alike.  It truly is a circle.

Hope to see you there.

Much Light!

Sankofa Bird

WHAT:           Circle Session: “Sankofa: Reflection to Arrival”

Come and explore the theme of Sankofa through meditation, music, universal ritual, discussion and food.

The symbol Sankofa is that of a bird whose head is facing the opposite direction of its body.  This is emphasizing the fact that, even though the bird is advancing, it periodically makes a point to examine its past.

We will come together to reflect upon 2012 then visualize the growth and blessings we seek in 2013.
