The Alchemy of Women’s Collection Wisdom and Power
We are excited to be part of this international anchoring event for women before the week of the Parliament of World Religions kicks off at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre!
Joan Jothi Saldanha is with Sacred Women International who is the Canadian host for this event.
It is our intention to provide an opportunity to prepare ourselves individually and collectively for the week ahead. We will meet one another in circle, experience the power of sacred space, deepen our skill of generative listening, discover resonance and reverence, and nurture the root system of women's spirituality.
8:30am Registration Opens
We will be holding a sacred water ceremony. We invite you to bring a small vial of water that feels spiritually significant to you to include in the ceremony. For some it might be from the ocean, a river, or a waterfall. For others it may be from a shrine that is special to them. Or, you can bless tap water yourself!
Our collective water will then be carried in procession to the water's edge and then to the Parliament.
Please register soon. Space is limited.
For more information on how you can attend this intimate and blessed ceremony, please contact us!
