Gathering the Grandmothers returns to Rutland

Gathering the Grandmothers has been created to elevate the status of the Wise Women. Area women who see themselves as wise women and/or in the Grandmother stage of life are invited to speak their wisdom, be honored and celebrated. You do not have to have grandchildren to attend.   

Long ago the dreams and visions of the Grandmothers became counsel for the entire tribe. Major decisions that affected the tribe had to be brought to the Grandmothers. The ultimate goal in creating these circles is for the Grandmothers of our society to remember how important they are and reclaim their place as Wise Elders in their communities. 

The next Gathering will be on Sunday, Jan. 13 from 2-4 p.m. at Right to Wellness, 19 West St., Rutland. There is parking in back. New women are always welcome. Suggested donation is $15-20. The event is facilitated by Teresa King. Please contact her at 518-854-3313 or to RSVP or if you have any questions.
