Desert Dreaming

2019 Annual Women's Gathering

Early Bird Special ends November 30, 2018 

The Star Nation Dreamers Sisterhood of Phoenix, Arizona, sponsors a Woman's Retreat every February to allow us to dream together to renew our bonds of sisterhood, share sacred knowledge,and restore our wombs to power and beauty.  We drum, sing, and do ceremony together as well as receive teachings from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path in a magical way that speaks to us as women. 

Our teacher, Barbara Brachi "Midnight Rose", travels from Canada to guide us into the Dreaming.   She is the co-founder of the Institute for Contemporary Shamanic Studies in Toronto, and is also the leader of Raven's Call, a sisterhood of 30 women, now in its 21st year.  We gather on a Thursday night in a magical landscape in the heart of Scottsdale, and continue our dreaming process until Sunday noon.  The meals are nourishing and we have our own gathering place in which to share our beauty and life wisdom so that it reflects back to us the power of who we are as women. 

We welcome women from all walks of life and spiritual/religious backgrounds to join us.  No experience of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path is needed.

About Barbara Brachi "Midnight Rose" In 1998, Barbara had a dream.  It was one of those  prophetic dreams that we all have from time to time.  A  full moon was rising at midnight over the desert, in a  magical landscape, and two ravens swooped in, landed  in front of that full moon, and cawed and cawed to the  east.  The message that presented itself to Barbara was, "It is  time to share your knowledge and all that you have  been taught by Thunder Strikes about the mystery,  beauty, and power of the feminine."  We will dream together with Barbara in this very special desert landscape. In this way, we will nurture the womb strength that our families and the world need at this time. As the "first teachers" we must continue to teach other women about this sacred knowledge.
