“I imagine that women and men are equal…”
What is the Red Owl Sisterhood?
The Red Owl Sisterhood is a Sacred Space of exploration for Women.
Its intent is focused on upholding, honouring and celebrating the Sacred Law stating; ‘All things are born of the feminine, receptive conceptive energy and sparked by the masculine, active conceptive energy’.
Within this sacred circle, we explore and experience the ancient roots of women’s wisdom and power, as we pursue our commitment to individual and collective mutual growth for all humans.
From this sacred circle, we aim to contribute towards creating a state of balance between women and men, as we exchange and co-operate with one another and with brotherhood circles.
We honour the previous seven generations of wisdom keepers and elders of all traditions dedicated to walking in the light. In gratitude for their contributions to our learning and understanding we strive to keep the integrity of women’s wisdom in trust for the seven generations yet to come.
We honour Nature as our teacher, learning from her infinite wisdom, teaching us how to live in alignment with the natural cycles and sacred laws of creation.
We align ourselves to the natural cycle within the calendar year through eight ceremonial celebrations.
We honour our monthly moonblood and give it back to Grandmother Earth to deepen and strengthen our connection with her.
The Sisterhood of the Red Owl Society provides opportunities to learn ancient women’s knowledge and experience ceremonies, initiations, rites of passage and rituals. We accept our responsibility to be role models of co-empowerment for women of all ages, within and outside of our sisterhood circle.
We practice heart to heart communication, speaking to each other openly and honestly, with respect and care.
We commit to support each other through the challenges of everyday life to the best of our ability without stepping into each others circles by fixing or rescuing.
We practice humour, pursue pleasure over pain and we act with the dignity and grace of the goddess within.
We are a circle of women who seek knowledge that leads us and all humans to the Light.
Sisterhood Teaching Circles…
Weekly Teaching Circles are held (in person at the Training Centre & via webinar) on Tuesdays from 13:30 – 15:00 (GMT+02:00)
Using the Medicine Wheel Teachings as our vehicle, we journey into the Great Mystery of the Benevolent Matriarchal / Patriarchal Energy to unlock our Sacredness. These Circles take an experiential approach. The more actively you participate in your own process the more you will gain from the experience.
You are encouraged to become your own disciple. To take the time to search and reflect within, so you can become aware of any dissonance arising through this powerful process and clear it away. Allow the knowledge to seat itself in your womb and dream with you.
As you do this, you will awaken to the knowing that you are the walking temple of Wakhan. It is your birthright to honour, celebrate and love your Self and the sacred female temple that is your physical body.
The more we can sit comfortably in our own skin and share from our naturalness, the more impact we have. This is our give-away to the world.
We are currently working with a 12 week teaching where we venture into our She/He-Ness, delve into the void of infinite knowing and limitless becoming and surrender to the Space of the She-Thoughts. We explore how each of these spaces unlock the door into deeper reflections of self, life and others as we hone our ability to be Magnetic, Attractive and Attentive so we can manifest our true desires.
‘Taking Responsibility through the SHE Thoughts’: Week 1: January 17th – Week 12: April 4th 2017
We will continue with Tuesday Teachings after April 4th, so watch this space.
Sisterhood Gathering Circles…
Monthly Gathering Circles are held on (or close to) the evening of the New Moon
These Gathering Circles provides an opportunity for women to come together and delve into the mystery and magick within us.
Each Gathering is different. Every time we come together to sit in Circle, we honour ourselves & each other for who we are and our current state of being.
We explore teachings, tools and guided processes that help us to align more intimately to ourselves and awaken more fully to our Sacred Feminine so we can feel vital, energetic, empowered & supported to be ourselves.
Come and join a movement of Sisters, Grandmothers, Mothers, Daughters, Warrior Women, Wild Women, Wise Women & Wonderful Women.
Women seeking to be a part of the solution, a Benevolent Matriarchal/Patriarchal Community, where we all find greater receptivity to the ebb & flow of our inner world & celebrate the fullness of our true nature.
These Gathering Circles are held on or close to the evening of the New Moon, a time when we have greater access into our feminine magick.
We gather from 6:30 to begin at 7pm SHARP. Due to the timing of this Gathering, it is suggested that you bring Feast Food to share for supper.
We come together on the following dates in 2017:
Tuesday February 21st

Sisterhood Purification / Sweat Lodges…
Sisterhood Sweat Lodges are run at the seasonal shift in March, June, September & December
Some of the Elders say the Sweat Lodge was created for men, so they may also have an opportunity to release their stresses, worries and burdens, as women have the opportunity to do during their time of bleeding – or moontime. Many of us are so far removed from our bodies, we have lost connection to our natural way of being a woman.
The Sweat Lodge symbolizes the Earth’s womb, introspection and the feminine. The door to the Lodge always faces the fire which represents the spark of life, our connection to spirit and the masculine. We use the power of this metaphorical symbolism to help us return to a state of balance.
When women come together in Circle and participate in a Sweat Lodge Ceremony, we cross over the chasm created by our modern lifestyle and step back into conscious awareness our bodies. We create a fertile space within us from which we foster and grow our self-worth, find more acceptance and embrace a greater measure of self-love.
This is a rain or shine event so dont be put off by wet weather. We gather at 5pm SHARP on the following dates:
Tuesday March 21st 2017
Wednesday June 21st 2017
September – I’ll be running this one in Toronto, Canada
Friday December 22nd 2017
