On March 8th, 2008 in the beautiful Sierra foothills with flowering trees and budding flowers, many women’s lives were transformed by the healing circle that was created in honor of International Women’s Day.
Suzanne Grace Rolle, a Women for Women International sponsor from Auburn, California hosted the event, “Gathering of Remarkable Women”.
About thirty women from all ages gathered in a circle and opened their hearts, shared stories, drummed, sang, cried and laughed together. After watching the video created by Women for Women International, they were moved to meditate on personal and global peace. They also symbolically put women’s names from all over the world into their circle.
Many of the women that attended decided to take action and sponsor women through Women for Women International – to change the lives of women survivors of war!
Thank you Suzanne and everyone that attended!
