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.
SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 2021 GULF COAST GRANDMOTHERS ANNUAL GATHERING
MAY 24-27, 2021 | CAMP BECKWITH, AL
Through our current evaluation and planning process, we have been guided by the Sacred Feminine to believe that it will be safer for us to plan our 2021 Gathering for May rather than March.
With that hope in our hearts, we have chosen May 24-27, 2021 as our new dates for the 2021 Gathering.
Please SAVE THE DATE for Monday, May 24th through Thursday, May 27th with early arrival available on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
We know how important it is for us to have a safe space to tell our stories, listen to our grandmother sisters, and to connect with each other. We are continually consulting with Camp Beckwith and at this time, we have hope that a smaller, safer, sacred Grandmother Gathering may be possible with social distancing practices put in place for the health and safety of all. With new procedures put in place for check-in, rooming, meals, ceremonies and circles, we believe it will still be our wondrous Grandmother Gathering. Our SPIRIT CENTERED SACREDNESS will not change.
With an abundance of caution for everyone's health and safety, we know that going forward may become impossible. We are prepared to stop planning and cancel the Gathering at any time if it becomes unsafe to gather. In light of that commitment, registration will be opening soon. The non-refundable deposit has been waived with full refunds for cancellations.
We will be providing more details as we get closer to the opening of registration so please keep a look out for our emails and Facebook page.
Be well. Love and blessings to all!
The 2021 Planning Circle for the Gulf Coast Grandmothers
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.
