"A village without elders is like a tree without roots."

AFRICAN PROVERB

The AZ Council of Grandmothers is a group of women dedicated to coming together to honor and uphold the Divine Feminine in each other and in the world. We have compiled a list of resources that we have drawn inspiration and guidance from over the years we have been gathering together and sharing our stories.

Please note that AZ Council of Grandmothers is providing this list as a courtesy. Many
of the women who are contacts for these "sister" sites have participated in our past Gatherings, however, AZ Council of Grandmothers has no affiliation with their operation.
