For a great “Power Of We” example, here is the Grandmothers’ Mission Statement:
– We represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come.
– We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future.
– We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.
3 Indigenous women elders, shamans and medicine women from around the world, have been called together to share their sacred wisdom and practices. Can they light the way for us to a peaceful and sustainable planet?
When they first formed their alliance, the Grandmothers vowed to travel to each other’s homeplaces until they had gone all the way around the circle. This November, it’s Grandmother Aama Bombo’s turn to host the 12th Council in Nepal. This Gathering, “Praying for Peace in the Land of the Buddha” puts a strong prayer in motion at a crucial time for our planet, in a place where prayer really matters.
“Grandmother power” is now a global phenomenon. No longer relegated to the footnotes of history, grandmothers are finding their voices and their power to protect their traditions and their healing practices, in an effort to ensure the survival of the world for their children, their children’s children, and for the next seven generations to come.
Support the 13 Grandmothers Prayer for Peace in the “Land of the Buddha! IndieGoGo campaign” for the 12th Council Gathering in Kathmandu, Nepal – November 8-11, 2012, [sorry, this campaign has expired now].
