“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”
To foster a healthy and sustainable environment; promote social, economic, food, housing, and spiritual justice, and strengthen democracy for our BIPOC Elder Women/Grandmothers.
The Grandmothers Village Project is a not-for-profit organization founded to uphold and provide respect, honor, and care for our Elders, centering on our Grandmothers. By providing living spaces for a growing community of like-minded, spirit-centered, and health-minded Elders, we will provide the means for our Elders to live independently and sustainably, with ceremony and spirit at the core. The Wisdom Tree Village will be our flagship community of Grandmothers (and some grandfathers) that live a spiritually-based life, located in Massachusetts. Our community will build self-sustaining/eco-based homes, and be conscientious and considerate of environmental impact and health within our infrastructure. We will work toward being an off-grid community, as well as, growing our own organic food and medicine. Ceremony will be at the heart of this community. This will be a place where Elders are honored for their wisdom and will have ceremonial space to share their wisdom both within and outside the community. Diversity of traditions will be honored and welcomed here. At the center, and common ground will be a deep respect and love for the land and nature, a knowing that we are all connected: Humans, Animals, Plants, the Earth, the Waters, the Air, and all they contain; and a dedication to live in a manner that is good medicine for all involved.
The highest integrity in every endeavor and interaction. Honor and respect for our elders, the land, and all of nature. Commitment to diversity and Inclusion of all BIPOC-identified people. Commitment to the land, good health, zero carbon emissions. We hold a Spiritual, Animist, Faith Based philosophy.
