April’s New Moon Grandmother
My friend Tom Blue Wolf writes about this April’s New Moon Grandmother:
“Aprils New Moon grandmother, while deepening our love and the ability to receive love, will prepare us for the Green Grass Full Moon of April and our power to manifest. “The world will be saved by the western woman,” said the Dalai Lama during the September 2009 Vancouver Peace Summit. Western women of all ages are in a perfect position to speak out for justice and to take on the responsibilities of “the priestess” … to take loving care of the planet and its people.” The original meaning of the word “priestess” in indigenous language referred to a women with great powers who was responsible for the land, the waters and the people.”
While I had heard of Tom for many years through close friends in Atlanta, I finally met Tom last year through my dear friend and co-author in an upcoming book on Green Heroes, Laura Seydel (another Woman Saving The World). Since then Tom has become a very important mentor, guide and friend to me in my human and spiritual journey. The first day I went to Tom’s home in North Georgia, we spoke about the return of the mother. He has had a powerful impact on me with the topic of Women Saving The World. Since our lodge ceremonies are sacred, I will not speak of them in detail, but they have been was full of great honor to our grandmothers and women as a whole. I have met some remarkable men and woman through Tom. You can learn more about him on his website.
