Dear All Our Relatives:

 

 

We, Phoenixfire and Women’s Gathering, thank you with deepest gratitude for your donations, contributions, good energy, prayers, and support and your collective generosity which made it possible for us to go on our Flathead Lake “Wild Horse Island” Retreat 2014.  Collectively with our community and family support, we achieved our goals for our Women to “Retreat and Reclaim our Sacred Feminine as mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, grandmothers, aunties, caregivers, nurturers, etc.” 

 

 

Our 2015 Phoenixfire and Women’s Gathering Retreat on August 10-15 will be a time of sharing, cultural exchange and healing as we journey to sacred sites of the Makah Tribal Reservation to see the Whales “A Gift from the Sea.”  When our Women are strong and in balance, our families are strong and in balance.
