Soul Sisters was born out of the friendship of Rickie Byars and Greta Sesheta. Inspired by each other and a shared connection to the Divine through music, movement, and wisdom, they gathered a community of women transcending their differences and forging deep spiritual connections through creative expression, compassion, and empowerment.
Each year, since 1999, hundreds of women from all walks of life, preteens to elders, strangers and friends come together to laugh and cry, share their knowledge and insights, and change the stories that would deny their greatness to ones that affirm it. Soul Sisters Today honors these beginnings and assures its legacy by offering year-long opportunities for Soul Sisters to stay engaged no matter where they live in the world. We see this on-line community as a way for Soul Sisters to remain connected, and continue to grow in awareness that, at the level of the Soul, we are One.
By joining Soul Sisters Today you will immediately have access to an incredibly supportive community of women all committed to being their best possible selves. This site is filled with opportunities to grow and transform mentally, physically and spiritually. Through this network you will have ongoing access to inspirational live events, workshops and classes as well as real-time access to the entire Soul Sisters community.
Think of Soul Sisters Today as an extension of the love, inspiration and energy shared and experienced in our Soul Sister Retreat. A virtual place you can go all year long to connect, support and be supported by your Soul Sisters. Just like our retreat, this can be your safe space to commune with and care for one another.
To ensure success, these are our recommended guidelines:
Be supportive. Encourage and support your sisters. No one here is looking for your criticism, cynicism, advice, or judgement. (We can get those things on the rest of the Internet).
Be generous. Your stories and experiences may be exactly what another sister needs to hear today to solve a problem or seize an opportunity.
Be constructive. We’re here to gently nudge each other forward and lift each other up. Discover and share ways to help each other to think more positively, choose higher, stay curious and reframe challenges.
Be Respectful. Honor everyone’s privacy. Being part of this virtual sisterhood requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive, heart-felt discussions make our community great, but may also be sensitive and private- just meant to be shared here in the heart of our sisterhood. What's shared here should stay here.
Don’t spam, promote, or troll. This community exists to help you grow and stay inspired, encouraged and empowered. It is not a place to spam, promote your services, bully, intimidate or pressure anyone.
We believe there are easy but important agreements. If you think you’ll be unable to abide by these guidelines, let us know and we’re happy to release you from participating. If we feel that your posts are clearly not within these guidelines we will suspend your membership.
