OUR ANNUAL GATHERING
Over 50 women from near and far gather by the beautiful Weeks Bay in south Alabama each year in spring to connect with each other for inspiration and guidance, and to welcome the Sacred Feminine into our Grandmothers Gathering.
We invite you to sign up to receive our emails for information on our next Gathering. Together we will share our stories and be witnessed by our powerful Grandmother Sisters. We connect with each other organically, holding the rim while we sit in circle, in workshops, meditation, music, and healing arts — sharing laughter, tears and more.
THE GULF COAST GRANDMOTHERS 21ST ANNUAL GATHERING
MARCH 26-29, 2020 | CAMP BECKWITH, AL
It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of sadness that we had to cancel our 2020 Gathering that would have started tomorrow. As the time nears that our Gathering was to be we are missing you more than ever. We hope you are well and happy.
We are packing up the March 2020 Gathering, putting it in a box with the hope we may be able to open it when the world order resumes. Guided by the heartfelt belief that action taken sooner than later is exponentially protective of individuals and communities, our hope for all is good health and gentle times as we face life's challenges.
We have now issued refunds to all our attendees, and those who paid with a check or cash will be receiving their refund via check in the mail soon.
Please join us in looking forward to our next Grandmother Gathering, and we will keep you updated as those plans develop. It will be wonderful...it always is!
Be well. Love and blessings to all!
We invite you to sit in circle with us, where together we will share our stories and be witnessed by our powerful Grandmother Sisters.
MORE ABOUT THE GATHERING
Our overall goal for the Gathering, which begins with the Opening Ceremony and ends with the Closing Ceremony, is to open our hearts and minds and receive points of light into our lives so we can see ourselves and the world differently.
The incorporation of the The Circle Way process, including world renown principles, practices and agreements, allows the grace of heartfelt communication to manifest and heart connections to be made within each Gathering. Approximately eight women are randomly selected at the beginning of the Gathering to sit together in a small circle each day. Two women are co-facilitators throughout the duration of the Gathering and the discussion is focused around the Gathering theme which changes each year. The small circles are a safe place to share our stories, honor our voices and claim our empowerment as we soothe our souls and transform our lives.
Some of our recent themes have been “The Turtle Path—Connecting our Inner Lives with our outer surroundings”, “Living our Legacy”, “Dragonfly Medicine—Celebrating Transformation”, “The Sacred Feminine” and “The Evolutionary Woman”.
When we meet, we put our names into the Circle and close it around us, building a container of love.
At the Closing Ceremony we say, "The circle is open but never broken."
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
