Remembering & Honoring Our Spiritual Foremothers

 Remembering & Honoring our Spiritual Foremothers Sophia Women’s Circle

The holiday season brings memories of our mothers and grandmothers. Food, gifts, traditions, women are the center of many families' holiday times. At this time, do we also remember our female spiritual lineage? If you have moved beyond you family's religious, spiritual or cultural traditions, who has inspired you as a woman along your spiritual path?

While we remember and honor our role models and heroines from our earlier years, often heroines from afar, as we reach a "certain time of life" many times our inspiration and perspective shifts. We begin to appreciate women who had a positive impact on us, even if we did not recognize it at the time. They may include our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, impactful teachers, family friends, friend's mothers, or a woman in our family line from a few generations in the past. They are the women, who when we look back, give us inspiration, courage, helped us see ourselves beyond our immediate family role and identity, and helped point us in the way of our own spiritual path in life. These are the women we will remember and honor during this month's Sophia Women's Circle.


QUESTIONS FOR OUR CIRCLE:

1) Who are your inspirations for spiritually evolving women? Who do you consider your spiritual foremothers?

2) Do you claim any spiritual foremothers now, that you did not recognize as a child?

3) If you could be in contact with any of your women ancestors for spiritual nurture, whom would you choose? How has she strengthened and impacted your life?
