13 Original Clan Mothers


I listed the 13 Original Clan Mothers as one of my interests. I did a blog search and found no one else who listed this as an interest. Branches magazine has a scheduled event listed on the west side of Indianapolis: A Clan Mother Gathering is held at 7 p.m. the Thursday closest to the full moon, near Cloverdale, to share the teachings of the 13 Original Clan Mothers. 765/721-0339.


I would like to attend this group sometime in order to meet new people, but it is farther away from me than the Turquoise Marble in Batesville where they are starting a study of the Clan Mothers in January. "Turquoise Marble Teaching Center is a diverse community
dedicated to teaching the sacredness and right relationship of all Creation
," and I have known the founder, Grandfather Warren Ramey, for over 20 years. I also have several friends who attend events held at the center and am looking forward to the teachings.


I became familiar with the Clan Mother teachings through a book study held at TMLC. For a better idea of what the teachings will be about, here is a book review by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat:


Jamie Sams is of Seneca, Cherokee and French descent. For the past 18 years, the co-author of The Medicine Cards has been developing an ancient feminine wisdom system passed on to her by two Kiowa Grandmothers. The 13 Original Clan Mothers is the result of her labors. Here she shares the stories, totems, and talents which come with each cycle of the moon. This poetic and soul-stirring volume probes the multidimensional aspects of feminine transformation.
The ancient teachings of the sisterhood encourage a respect for all relations, all worlds, and all mysteries. Women are challenged to seek the truth through dreams, impressions, prophecy. They must be good listeners and mothers of creativity. They are the guardians of the needs of the next seven generations. That means they must seek justice, self-determination, and balance right now.
In Native American tradition, a woman comes into her full spiritual powers around the age of 52. Those who want to bring to life the Looks Far Woman, the Walks Tall Woman, the Setting Sun Woman, and other interior aspects will be enlightened and emboldened by this extraordinary book.


And, a quick introduction to a couple of Clan Mothers: First, there is Wisdom Keeper. the Protectress of Sacred Traditions. She teaches us the arts of self-development and expansion and shows us how to honor the truth. Also, Clan Mother, Weaves the Web, the mother of creativity and the manifestor of dreams. She teaches us how to use our desire to create, bring our dreams into tangible forms, and work with the truth. Another Clan Mother, Listening Woman, the mother of stillness and inner-knowing, the keeper of discernment, the interpreter of messages from the spirit world. She teaches us how to hear the truth. Becomes Her Vision, the guardian of transformation and transmutation. She teaches us how to release the old self and step into the realized dream; how to be the truth. . . . Interest piqued? Join our group, read the book, become a role model.


By the way men are attending also. There will be teachings with men and women together, then we will divide up for further discussion.
