Awakening the Global Heart: An Evening Celebrating the Power of Ancestry
Everyday Medicine Woman® invites you to join us for a magical evening with esteemed elders Grandmother Flordemayo, Grandmother Mona Polacca and Grandmother Rita Long-Visitor Holy Dance, members of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.
The evening will begin with an informal gathering among new and remembered kindred spirits, followed by a screening of the powerful documentary"For the Next 7 Generations" by Carole Hart, which takes us into the lives of each Grandmother and how they came to learn about each other's lineage and culture.
After the film, the Grandmothers will share their extraordinary ten-year journey of walking in united intention on behalf of the global vision for the healing of our beloved planet and humanity. It will be a unique opportunity to be in the company of three lineage holders who carry the unbroken ancestral teachings at these critical crossroads in our turbulent world. They will each share comments and answer questions about what it has meant to serve this sacred assignment and become a sisterhood of love as the completion of the Council's original mission comes close to fruition.
