“We lose our souls if we lose the experience of the forest, the butterflies, the song of the birds, if we can’t see the stars at night.”
Solidarity Sisters is a 10-week conscious women’s group that takes place each Spring and Fall and is dedicated to exploring spiritual activism, feminine wisdom and transformational leadership. This is for women-identifying folks to gather in the spirit of sisterhood as we connect deeply to ourselves, to each other and to Earth.
We come together as we are, in a safe and honoring space to be held in sisterhood, to be seen and celebrated as unique and powerful individuals together on a journey toward deeper self-knowing, self-loving, mutual expansion and collective liberation. We call forth our gifts, our truth, and the aspects of self in hiding. We lift each other up and hold each other in loving awareness and recognize each other as divine reflections here to support one another to develop a deeper sense of wholeness, power and integration as conscious women. We seek to unveil our most intimate, human selves without shame or fear. We step into our courage and fierceness and cast spells of love upon one another.
Through this weekly emergent group process, we will actively participate in creating the kind of culture we long to see in the world through authentic, intimate, and healing experiences that transform personal and collective consciousness. We will build women’s power by sharing our stories, listening to and supporting one another, discovering our inner fire, speaking truth, and showing up for one another in ways that feels meaningful. We are being called to RISE as a collective. We are being called to come together and co-create new ways of being in the world that recognizes our ancient belonging to each other and to Earth. We must become who we are here to become and we need the support of one another to do it.
WHAT WE DO TOGETHER:
Through nature connection, group process, ritual & ceremony and organic free flow, we explore the following (this is a broad list of topics and does not mean that each session will cover these specific topics):
– Sexual power & liberation-
-Body love & inner temple cultivation-
-Women’s wisdom & earth cycles-
-Inner child work-
-Power dynamics in relationship-
-Deep nature connection-
-Anti-racism & anti-oppression-
-Mindful & intentional living-
There is no cost to join this group however we are looking for folks who are committed to the entire 10-week journey. To honor the depth of connection we’ve created, Solidarity Sisters is not a drop-in group. We ask women to commit to a minimum of 10 weeks in the sisterhood, though most women who join us stay permanently.

FALL SESSION: Wednesdays from Sept. 9th – Nov. 11th | 6:30m – 9PM

“The circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we’re weak, and sing with us when we are strong.”
Based on the work of Thomas Berry whose inspiration is central at Timberlake, the EP group has been meeting each month for several years now to continue to explore ways in which our personal evolution, or inner spiritual growth, can further develop and impact the collective evolution within the transitional times in which we live. Each month a theme, (Listening, Interiority, Community, Presence, Intuition, for example) is undertaken to which each one in the circle contributes a perspective from her own personal experience or interest, whatever that may be :a poem, prayer, journal , artwork, music, reading, etc… Each member of the group is encouraged to bring support and extend compassion to the growth of self, one another and to cultivate a deep awareness of the earth and the natural world as primary . Each month’s gathering of the EP group includes solo walks on the trails of Timberlake.

Bonfire nights bring us together in an intimate and casual setting once a month with the intention to connect in meaningful ways through conversation, laughter and silence. It’s all about getting back to the basics and enjoying the simple things that life has to offer. This is an opportunity to step away from the hustle bustle and step into the sanctuary of the wild. Listen to the cracking fire, the song of crickets, spring peepers, bull frogs, and the sweet sound of silence. Relax deeply into the moment, into your body and allow yourself the pleasure of being here now. We invite you to unplug to connect to yourself and to the healing biorhythms of Earth. You will walk away feeling rejuvenated, uplifted and ready to take on what lies ahead.
UPCOMING GATHERINGS: TBA
Example: A Mother Blessing Ceremony
This is an alternative to the traditional baby shower, which prepares a woman for transition into motherhood. It is a time for the mother-to-be to gather with the women closest to her, toward the end of her pregnancy, and cultivate positive energy for her upcoming birth experience.
