Int’l council of 13 Indigenous grandmothers to hold 12th gathering in Nepal

Renowned Nepalese healer Aama Bombo (Mother Shaman) will be hosting the 12th gathering of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, of which she is a member, in Kathmandu, Nepal from November 8th – 11th, 2012.

Born as Buddhi Maya Lama, Aama Bombo became a highly respected shaman following in her father’s tradition. Her seat on the Grandmothers Council and this historic gathering in Kathmandu is seen as further evidence of a shift toward feminine leadership in the healing of Mother Earth and all her inhabitants.

The Public Council gathering is set to be held at the Hotel Annapurna in Durbar Marg, Kathmandu.

Following the gathering, an extended 8-day journey to Nepalese sacred sites and wilderness expedition is also scheduled.

As, at all Grandmother Council gatherings, a sacred fire will be burning for the duration and participants are invited to join as each Grandmother offers prayers and rituals from her respective tradition. Nepalese dignitaries and other special guests will be scheduled to speak, and participants will be given an opportunity to address the Grandmothers at an open forum.

According to the organiser of the event, the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers represents a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, and all the children for the next seven generations to come. The Grandmothers Council was brought together by a common vision, set in motion by the Center for Sacred Studies (CSS), a non-profit organization dedicated to sustaining indigenous ways of life through cross-cultural spiritual practices, ministry, and education, and committed to peace and unity for all peoples. nepalnews.com
