"Everyone has an inner knowing, a gift and an ability to do things, especially if we open our hearts to God and work for Mother Earth."
With devotion to the Creator in their hearts, the 13 Grandmothers are once again gathering from the four corners of the world, in prayer for the Earth and harmony for all beings. For this 8th Council Gathering, we are respectfully joining together in honor of Grandmother Clara Shinobu Iura and her people, Brazilian by birth and Japanese by ancestry.
The Council Gathering will include sacred dancers and local elders coming to greet the Grandmothers to open the Sacred Fire. As they have done in previous councils, the Grandmothers gather together to offer teachings, prayer, and wisdom from their peoples. Grandmother Clara's great love and compassion is guiding this 8th Council to be a time of healing and inspiration for all of us.
