Rekindling A Millennia-old Cross-Cultural tradition
Sacred Sister Circles
I sat in sacred circles in 1999-2001.
In sacred Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota pipe ceremonies and sweat lodges.
In a sacred Diné sweat lodge…my first sister circle, held by a Diné grandmother, for her adopted daughters and granddaughters.
And with my sisters around candlelight, on the full moon.
In 2004 – 2011, I sat in circles, often weekly or even more.
Spiritual healing circles, recovery circles.
In 2021, I sat in sacred circle again.
Initiated into sacred cacao ceremony.
Honoring Mama Cacao and the elders who initiated my own teachers with this sacred plant medicine.
Fucking powerful stuff.
In 2022, I sat in sacred circle again.
A sacred sister full moon circle, around my fire pit.
Sisters I’d just met gathered round, voicing their hunger for sacred connection.
Now many moons later, this sacred tradition continues…
