Review of WeMoon ’09 datebook:

At the Crossroads

by Flordemayo,

member of the International Council

of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers


This is the first time I have seen anything like We’Moon. It makes me feel very happy, very contented. It is an eye-opener for a beginner and confirmation for the elderly. All this information in a tiny little book! This is an incredible calendar of guidance and information. The beauty I received from We'Moon is from the giving of the heart. Every one put in a little bit of themselves: poetry, art, photographs, etc. So it’s about the beauty of the gift. There is such incredible information—on everything: on how we are walking in this beauty.


I showed the We’Moon to all the Grandmothers when we were in Spain, coming into Barcelona to do our water ceremony with 700 women. I showed it around when we were on the bus. Every Grandmother was able to relate to something. Wow! they were all saying!


There are so many beautiful things that touched me: the writing about the Path of the Little Sister, the Global Crisis art, the poem “I Cry Too,” Code Pink and Women in Black, the poem “Leap of Faith”, the Labyrinth Meditation, the Medicine Bag with Crow—I could go on and on. The beautiful Owl on the cover! I have thought about how the women who make We’Moon are able to compile so much information, that women know this is happening and send information. Like the cover says, rhythms for women: in this small book is guidance for life, help to not feel alone. The Spirit of the Feminine is there.
