Most of tonight's program is prerecorded, and next week we will be speaking much more with Abril.
Abril Mondragon. Taos Valley, New Mexico
Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez, Don Patricio Dominguez, Sequoyah Trueblood, Mike Two Bears Andrews and other men went into prayer together and received the ceremonial vision for the Passing of the Staff of Authority to the Feminine side. Part of this vision was for this “new/old ceremony” to go worldwide, to support and nourish the Grandmothers whom are called to the teaching, healing, caregiving of the Wise Ways and Life Ways of the Feminine.
We are grateful for their untiring dedication throughout their lives to prepare and educate the world for the Feminine’s return.
In February 2013, Grandmother Abril Mondragon was asked by Don Patricio if she would gather a group of grandmothers who would accept this ceremony along with her. Invitations were sent out, not necessarily based on who is most “visible” in our community.
The Vision is inclusive of Grandmothers from All Nations. The Ceremony is now passed to other Grandmothers by the Grandmothers who have have received this Ceremony.
Throughout the last 5125 years, Staffs of the Feminine that were passed with the cultural knowledge and power of the feminine were destroyed due to colonization. Many Wumyn have re-created other types of Staffs. May these Staff’s of Authority be nourished once again and be passed from generation to generation through the matrilineal birth-lines.

A Hopi Indian Prophecy says, " When the grandmothers are heard, the world will heal!"
A grandmother plays a major role is the raising of our children around the world and in establishing a peaceful planet! What might that look like?
She may have to take action by saying no to anything that is inappropriate or harmful for herself or her grandchildren or even her grown children.
She may have to courageously refuse to be a party to petty issues raised by others by taking nonaction.
She may have to think enough of herself to respect her home, her space, her body and her life with great self-care.

Sharon McErlane is a psychotherapist from Laguna Beach, Ca. who in 1996 received a vision that changed her life. The Council of the Grandmothers appeared as she walked her dog and revealed what must be done to bring the masculine and feminine energies on Earth back into balance. “Earth has suffered too long from an excess of yang and insufficient yin,” they said. “We have come to correct this.” Sharon has been sharing their empowerment into the energy of yin for over ten years. She will take the Grandmothers’ message and empowerment to Lithuania and the Netherlands in May and June and hold ceremonies in five cities there.
Each month she holds a Grandmothers’ Empowerment ceremony and meeting at her home in Laguna Beach, Ca. and passes on the Grandmothers’ latest teachings to women and men. At this time, thousands of women have received the Grandmothers’ Empowerment, many men have received the Cloak of Comfort and almost seventy Grandmothers’ groups have sprung up over the world. Sharon has written “A Call to Power: the Grandmothers Speak,” which describes her experiences with these wise women. To find out more about the Grandmothers’ message and a group near you, go to www.grandmothersspeak.com.

Education has taken my family from scrubbing floors, to managing a hospital. I am so fortunate that my grandmothers recognized the importance of obtaining an education and worked tirelessly to provide learning opportunities to their children. And for generations the value of education has been passed passed down.
I became an elementary school teacher, so that I could impart that same value in education and lifelong love of learning upon other children. When given the opportunity to receive a high-quality education, all students can achieve. I've witnessed first-hand students who come from some of the poorest neighborhoods and most challenging of circumstances grow up to earn college degrees and achieve greatness both personally and professionally. Every child deserves that opportunity!
Please join me on this BONUS episode of Mom Talk with Denise LaRosa, as I speak with Allies for Children Executive Director Patrick Dowd and Hear Me Project Manager Jessica Kaminsky about the need for fair education funding in Pennsylvania, and how parents, educators, children and caregivers can get involved!
You too can speak out for students across the state! To find out how to get involved, visit FairFundingPA.org!
Disclosure: I’m teaming up with the Campaign for Fair Education Funding to speak out for students across Pennsylvania. Although I am receiving some form of compensation, all opinions remain my own. #FairFundingPA
Violence Against the Girl and Child Marriage: Voices from Grandmothers Host: Dr. Ada Okika Co-Host: Mrs Chi Ezekwueche Research and News-anchor: Dr. Ifechukwu Anikpe, Ms. Amara Nwosu Discrimination and violence against girls and violations of their human rights still happen till today. The United Nations felt a need to raise awareness of the challenges that millions of girls face every day. In December 2011, the UN declared that it would annually observe the International Day of the Girl Child, starting from October 11, 2012. Just as Violence against women is a global course to the United Nations’ Community, the International organizations and working groups, violence against the girl child has much rooted concerns in the global pursuit on the Future Women Want. This calls for more serious commitment that in the end the future women want will include total eradication of all violence against the girl child that in the end what the girl child wants is equality between boys and girls.
