She Rises: The Global Sisterhood Movement

“The sun and moon they shine together
She moves the waters and dances with the heavens
In your eyes I see her eyes
In your eyes I see the giver of this life… Haseya, Haseya, Haseya.”

-Ajeet Kaur

“Haseya” comes from the Navajo tribe and means, “she rises” or “rise-up.” We have seen a rising of empowered sisters across the country with the recent #metoo movement and the modern surge of women in leadership positions. It is stunning to witness this new era of the Divine Feminine. As a man writing this I can’t speak from experience, only as an adoring witness and space holder. It has been a long journey and women have come so far in the last 100 years. It is strange to think that only a few generations ago, women didn’t even have the right to vote. Now, we have witnessed women like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama (all politics aside…) rise up to positions of power. These women have become major cultural leaders, a feet their own mothers could never have fathomed possible.

All this said, the work is not done.

Women are coming together to create waves of impact around the globe, and we want to highlight an organization that is taking the lead in the women’s empowerment movement. The Global Sisterhood is a movement of soulful women helping people shift from competition, comparison, judgment, and jealousy to respect, love, unity, upliftment, and compassion. They are creating a worldwide supporting Sisterhood of women devoted to healing hearts, empowering others, and transforming futures.

On International Women’s Day 2017, over 1000 Circles of women came together in over 80 countries with the synchronized intention to unite to transform themselves and the world. Stay tuned for International Women’s Day 2019! #freethefeminine on March 8th 2019. Since Global Sisterhoods conception in 2016, more than 7000 Circles of women around the world have been uniting both virtually and in local sister circles every new moon.

“A circle of women may just be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get Naked. Let them see you. Let them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love gentle. You will be changed. The very fabric of your being will be altered by this,
if you allow it. Please, please allow it.” – Jeanette LeBlanc

What is a sister circle?

A Sister Circle is a virtual or in-person women-only space. It’s a safe and sacred place where women share their journeys, insights, and stories, and are all seen and heard for who they truly are. Each Sister Circle is a unique experience influenced by the facilitator, the women participating, the location, and cultural traditions. When women come together in equality and acceptance, they allow magic to take place. When women are seen, heard, and held they can transform their insecurities, wounds, jealousies, competitive patterns, and claim their true radiance, unity, and power.

Women are standing together, celebrating how far they’ve come. They are showing the world that the Feminine will continue to rise, and rise strong. Imagine the power of women all over the world gathering in circles every month, sharing their hearts and unifying their intentions.

We have generations of ancestors to thank for the freedoms we have today, and we’re not done yet. Not even close. Our value is being acknowledged, and our voices are finally being heard. What we do next couldn’t be more important. Now is a time where we can step into our positions as leaders and help shape our world, so let’s consider how we want to do that. Do we want to perpetuate blame and competition, or do we want to encourage true harmony and unity? Do we want to create a world where pain is normal, or do we want everyone to feel safe, loved, and supported at all times? There is SO much power in a woman who feels truly seen, heard, and loved. When all of us feel that way, our world will be a better place. Let’s set a new example, together.”
