The Power of Female Energy by Elena Creef

I didn’t know until I arrived at Agape how much I needed to be in the healing company of like-minded individuals in a community devoted to a shared vision of peace and unity.

Beatrice Menase Kwe Jackson and Peggy McNew were dynamic, amazing, while leading the beautiful water ceremony. There was a powerful female energy to this magical weekend, with Chief Arvol Looking Horse as the honored grandfather, humbly anchoring the center. The grandmothers show us all the way.  I felt the spirit of the blessed Water Protectors at Standing Rock.
