It’s Saturday morning as I type this, and I’m sitting at the kitchen table watching Master Chef Junior with my 13 year old daughter, Catie. One of the (male) chefs just asked an 11 year old girl, “Who makes a better chefs? Women or men?” “Women!” she said, “Because even in the olden days they were the ones who were cooking.”
It’s reminding me, this small thing, about how we pass things down from mother to daughter–the deep wisdom of our roots, the clever tricks and tips we share amongst each other, the things we’ve forgotten that other’s don’t know.
That’s one of the many, many reasons it’s important for women to gather. Not only to share our strengths, but to remind each other just how powerful and wise we really are.
This year–our first year–at Soul Sister’s we’ll be filling up on new ideas and old, even ancient wisdom. We’ll be soothing tired bodies in quiet hotel rooms all-to-ourselves, and in a beautiful outdoor hot pool. (Yes, I said hot pool. No wimpy little hot tub for us!) We’ll be reconnecting to joy with whimsical little surprises. And, AND we’ll be remembering how smart, talented, and skilled we are. So we can go beyond self care and (much needed) self-soothing. So we can step into our own power. So we can (sustainably and with self-love) shape the world.
(Yes, even the bit outside of the domestic sphere.)
I hope you’ll join us. I hope you’ll buy your ticket, then email me so I can give you one of the rooms I’ve saved, just for you, under my own name. I hope you’ll remember what you forgot you even knew.
You are powerful, sister. Come remember that with me.
