The overarching goal of this Gathering is to offer an event embracing the Divine Feminine energies from different belief systems to bring Wisdom and Compassion and a Healing presence into the capital city of the most powerful nation on Earth -- AND to also create a powerful Global Grid of ceremonies that day to truly anchor the Divine Feminine into the heart of our Sacred Earth. Another goal of the Gathering and Grid is to bring in healing energies to ultimately return Sacred Balance between the feminine and masculine back into our world.
This Wisdom and Compassion Gathering is founded on the ancient tradition of Wisdom Gatherings where elders come together around Sacred Fire in council to tune into the wisdom of the fire, and teach to maintain peace and balance in their village.
Gaia Communicator & Priestess, Healer and Award-Winning Author, Mare Cromwell, initially received the Spiritual Call from Mother Gaia to organize this event late in the fall of 2015. The original plan was for a large event to take place in 2017 at a rural retreat center in Maryland. However Mother Gaia woke Mare up at 5am in late July 2016, and informed her that the event needed to happen in Washington. D.C., before the elections in November 2016.
(Several rather gifted Native Elders have confirmed that Mare is working closely with Mother Gaia. Rainbow Thunder Heart/Bennie LeBeau called her the "Voice of Earth Mother". Another highly esteemed Hawaiian elder, Woody Vaspra, told Mare that her work with Mother Gaia is in the prophecies -- not her name but that someone would be surrendering to Mother to this level to get Mother's messages out via books and events, etc.)
