Gathering the Grandmothers comes to Rutland

On Sunday, Dec. 9, women will gather at Right to Wellness, 19 West St., Rutland from 2 - 4 p.m. for Gathering the Grandmothers.

Gathering the Grandmothers has been created to elevate the status of the Wise Women in our communities. One does not have to have grandchildren to attend. It is an ongoing group and forum in which women of a 'grandmotherly age' can speak their wisdom, strengthen their voice and connect with a deeper sense of themselves and the role that Women can have in our society.

Long ago the dreams and visions of the Grandmothers became counsel for the entire tribe. Gathering the Grandmothers is an attempt to reclaim this power so that Women will stand taller and know that they are part of something large and important.

There is a suggested donation of $15-20. Please call 747-0761 to reserve your space. The event is facilitated by Teresa King, who has been gathering women and facilitating workshops for 16 years. Contact her at teresaking1@live.com or 518-692-7806 with any questions.
