Sisterhood of Planetary Water Rites Message

Grandmother Tonya Whitedeer, founder of the Sisterhood of Planetary Water Rites, recently wrote to let the members of the Sisterhood know that the Grandmothers Speak Organization will be sponsoring a Net of Light Workshop in Cork, Ireland, on September 11 and 12. You can learn more about the organization and the ceremonies in Ireland at www.grandmothersspeak.com


About: 2 day event will take place at the Metropole Hotel on Mac Curtain Street in Cork City, Ireland.

Time: Saturday 11th 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. and Sunday 12th 10am to 5pm

Guide: Sharon Mc Erlane will be holding the workshop www.grandmothersspeak.com

Sharon wrote and says, “It is possible to come for just one day but recommended as it is light work for the planet to try and attend the 2 days. The Empowerment is on the Saturday.  The workshop includes using the Net of Light, the Empowerment of the Grandmothers, raising the YIN energy in ourselves and the land, helping to awaken sacred sites in Ireland thus helping to balance the whole planet.”

COST: 2 days is 150 euro and one day is 90 euro.

Please email Louise Burke at louise.b75@gmail.com to register for this event and also if accommodation advice is needed.

Thank you for your love and blessings.


As a Council Member of the Sisterhood of the Planetary Water Rites, I am writing to invite you to attend and learn about the Sisterhood and the Nibi Wabo Water Ceremony at my Hospitality House in Minong, Wisconsin, USA, on Saturday, September 11.

 We will go to the sand dunes near the property  at sunset and perform a Nibi Wabo water ceremony. The work we do for Mother Earth and sending positive energy on this particular day is important to counterbalance the negative energy of stored memories of September 11 in the USA.

  As night falls we will make a sacred fire outside on the property and enjoy lifting our hearts to the heavens, on the third day of the New Moon.

We will send a net of light to the Grandmothers in Ireland who will anchor the net of light. We will be conduits of the net of light in different parts of the world creating balance for Mother Earth as she goes through this time of cleansing. Saturday is the day to empower YIN energy for feminine energy work. 

COST: $20 for those who need accommodations.

ACCOMODATIONS: Bring a sleeping bag and mat (hard floors).  We will need to shop for food and share food expenses as a group (evening meal and breakfast).

OUT OF TOWN ITINERARY:  September 11, plan on being here at 3:30 p.m. so we will have time to food shop, gather wood for a sacred fire, time to cook an outside evening meal and arrange bedding arrangements. On September 12, the sun rises at 6:26 a.m. I invite you to welcome morning’s first light as the sun rises over Peaceful Valley with chimes, bells, drums and clapping sticks followed by Yoga and/or Tai chi.
