Wise Women Resources
This is a place for call-out boxes for the circle way, newsletters, recommended books, films, and list of sister groups.
"A village without elders is like a tree without roots."
Our Council of Grandmothers is dedicated to supporting women of all ages in their quest for inner peace, wisdom, and whole-hearted living. As we uphold the Divine Feminine in each other and in the world, we have compiled a list of wise women resources to keep our Grandmother energy burning brightly. If you have a recommendation of something you have drawn inspiration and guidance from over the years, we would love to hear from you! Send us a message with your suggestions to add to this ongoing list of wise women resources.
