About the Event
With pleasure, we welcome you to the 2023 Gathering of the Gulf Coast Grandmothers at Camp Beckwith in Fairhope, AL (www.beckwithal.com). We will begin on Thursday, October 26th, with check-in from 8:30AM to 9:45AM and conclude on Sunday, October 29th at noon. Here is some important information that will guide you for your full participation in the Gathering.
Guided by the Sacred Feminine, we will gather together from Oct. 26-29 at Camp Beckwith in Fairhope, AL to explore this year's theme:
OUR JOURNEY OF PERSONAL DISCOVERY
𝘙𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘖𝘯𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴!
Many of us have felt the call to explore the nature of our life journey. We find ourselves intrigued with the spiritual aspect of our existence, and notice how we have become more conscious of the world around us. Collectively, this appears to make us feel more hopeful and uplifted about our place in the world. By embracing and pursuing these sparked interests, we may engage in some form of spiritual activity, such as meditation or self-study, which many report receiving profound insights from about the questions we have and connect us to the part of ourselves that is aware of greater spiritual truths.
Does making spirituality a part of our life today awaken our own inner guru? Does that nourishment help us realize that ultimately all our answers live within us?
Many find that the connection only strengthens our need to continually explore the aspects of our life that are spiritual in nature. Getting in touch with the part of ourselves that yearns for a deeper awareness about the meaning of life helps us to see our lives as a quest where the deeper we explore the layers of our existence the more we may understand the nature of our being.
By looking inside, we can enhance the understanding of our spirit and learn to believe that we are all ONE.
We invite you to sit in circle with us, where together we will share our stories and be witnessed by our powerful Grandmother sisters. We will connect with each other organically for inspiration and guidance as we walk our path of Spiritual Awakening with music, sound bath, meditations, ecstatic dance, journaling, and healing arts…sharing laughter, tears and more.
