Sisterhood. Let me paint you a picture. Girls at the start of their journey through womanhood, wise older women, young women, mothers & those in their middle years sitting around a crackling fire beneath trees and next to a stream on a summers day. The birds sing in the trees, smoke rises and the water bubbles in the brook. The air is soft and warm and the scent of roses wafts towards you.
All are listening as one of us talks about a famous woman who inspires her. The talking basket moves round as we take turns to open our hearts, minds and voices. We give one another space to speak and be heard so our confidence in one another and ourselves grows. The dreams we dare to dream burst into seed and then take root.
This gathering will give you (and your daughters) the opportunity to be inspired by others and be creative. We will be harnessing the ancient healing power of herbs by making herbal balm to soothe stings and skin irritation. We will also be creating with our hands – sewing dream pillows filled with mugwort, lavender and chamomile that can then help us work with the intuitive wisdom that comes through our dreams. Working with herbs in this way gives us the chance to keep our relationship with our ancient grandmothers alive – the women who once used and shared this wisdom on a daily basis.
We will be spending time in the Red Tent too – a beautiful space filled with shimmering saris, comfortable cushions and feminine art. We will walk the land nearby and share good food together.
The day will be very child-friendly, and perfect for girls age eight and above. It will draw on our connection with nature and those of all faiths and none are welcome. There will be balance between active, creative times and time to chat, relax and make new friends. You will come away with a strong and lasting impression of the bonding and solidarity that comes from celebrating our connection in a safely held circle.
