Graduation Day is always extraordinary! This week we had 4 graduating classes with 86 new WISE GIRLS!
We want to give you a SNEAK PEEK at what happens on the last day of our workshops.
"The Girls' Prayer" ~ Words by our Wise Maestra, Arleth
It is the last module of the Wise Girls' workshop.
On this day, the Girls bring flowers and seeds to create their altar, "a matrix of flowers".
Each seed, flower, leaf, or carving carries an intention, a prayer to life, to the Girls of this earth, to the 4 elementals: fire, earth, water, and wind.
When it is ready, we circle around the altar to circulate the word; the Girls share what they liked best about the workshop, share a thank you and a commitment to themselves, and present a drawing as an offering.
A recollection is made of everything learned and shared in these 5 days of workshop with songs corresponding to each module.
This is an inspiring day. Finally, the Girls graduate from the Wise Girls workshop. There is nostalgia and joy, laughter and tears.
They receive their sustainable management menstrual kit (made by Days for Girls International) and dance around the great containing "womb."
As a final closure, the Girls raise the altar and choose a tree to sow their prayers and intentions.
This is how this closing day is lived, very emotional and rewarding for the Wise Girls and Wise Teachers.
