The time for creating, reclaiming and rewriting rituals by and for women is now. Women’s ritual is the “extreme” notion that women can create and lead ritual without a middleman. It is the “revolutionary” consideration that we do not need a priest, rabbi, pastor, imam or any other human being to be the conduit to the Divine. By standing up and claiming our space, women are reclaiming positions as our own clergy and certainly as Priestesses of the Goddess, ministers, and spiritual leaders in our families and communities.
Importantly, Women’s Ritual is women-centric. It has created a call for and an answer to women’s needs to be in Sacred Space with other women; to share their women experiences and stories; to confirm that they are not alone. Societal masks may be removed in women’s ritual and in groups of all women; there is no need to filter what is shared. “SisterCircles that practice Rituals is currently the most important model for symbolic and therefore, psychic and spiritual change in women. Certainly ritual is an idealized microcosmic experience, but it may be an endurably important means of invoking a new order of things in the macrocosm. At the very least, it has been a useful mode for envisioning what a different world for women might ‘feel’ like.” -Kay Turner
Women’s Spirituality is teaching us the reality of Re-membrance and Transformation. By acknowledging the divinity within ourselves – the Goddess – we acknowledge the inherent power that is within us. We no longer need to stumble alone in the dark in pain and anger and shame – we can reach out and take the hands of our Sisters and acknowledge the pain, anger and shame; name it; feel it; and release it. We borrow our Sister’s strength to transform and then are ready to lend ourselves to her transformation as well.
Imagine a world where women are equal and respected; a world where our children are safe. If we can Imagine it, we can Create it. ♡
