for Girls and Women Building Peace

Date: December 12th, Friday

Location: Ashfield Congregational Church on Main Street (enter side door)

Time: 6:30 – 8:30

Stories will be shared connecting us to the power of Our Lady of Guadalupe from Mexico on her traditional feast day to bring the strength of women’s ways of knowing and inspire each other in this era of change and challenge. Co-Presenter  Elizabeth Cordova from Mexico explains that Our Lady of Guadalupe is a force for overturning oppression. Mama Lupe arose 500 years ago as the Spanish destroyed the life of the indigenous people.

Led by: Satyena Ananda and Elizabeth Cordova and enhanced by contributions from others in the circle.

Women and men, young and old are welcome.

Satyena Ananda directs Starseed Healing Sanctuary in Savoy and is a retreat leader, holistic educator, and spiritual counselor. A descendent of the four root races, Satyena is widely respected for her empowering ceremonies on feminine spirituality and earth based healing. Along with Elizabeth Cordova of Mexico, she will explore the wisdom of Our Lady of Guadalupe within our modern lives.
