About the Event
Our theme for this circle is: The Sister-Wound
Simply put, the sister wound is the pain, distrust, or dis-ease that many women feel when relating to other women. Jealousy, insecurity, cattiness, comparison, fear— these are all ways that the sister wound manifests itself in relationships with other women. Instead of viewing the other woman as a sister, we see her as an enemy, competition, or source of harm.
This sense of alienation is designed by the patriarchal society to keep women small and fighting each other, rather than fighting a larger system of inequality and oppression. We feel like we need to compete with other women for jobs, for positions of power, for other men; we are so focused on these fights that we have no energy left to battle the bigger enemy. We don’t even have the energy to even see the bigger enemy.
Women have had sisterhood stolen from them. By branding the gathering of women as a dangerous act, we have been conditioned to believe what the patriarchy wants us to think: that other women are dangerous, are competition, are unreliable. By reclaiming our right to sit with other women in the community, we are able to heal and reclaim so much of what the sister-wound has taken from us.
We will join in circle to ground ourselves, meditate, journal, share and connect.
