We are blessed as a global community to learn from our wise elders, the beloved Grandmothers of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Each of the Grandmothers hold a lineage and within that lineage deep wisdom, knowledge and courage.

Below we share a message received from Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire, she speaks about the Great Mother Forest. We invite you to join us to learn more about this incredible source of wisdom, the great Mother Forest, who helps us connect and return to the natural order of life.

Grandmother Maria Alice will be with us for the fee online fundraiser April 23 & 24 teaching us about the flowers and the forest.

We hope you’ll join us (👉 link to register

“The Amazon Flower Essences convey the message of the Great Mother Forest – a message of peace, unity and cooperation. By observing the behavior of the species that make up the nature of the Amazon Rainforest, we can see the sense of integrity, all encompassing the same life, each performing its function as part of a single organism. This reality forms a field of consciousness that radiates through the essences of its flowers.

In the present times in which we live; the pain of separation, misunderstanding, discord, and disintegration, the use of the Amazon flower essences can contribute to internal harmonization through the mirroring of the virtues of nature. By internalizing this natural order, it is possible to rescue the memory of our own original order, and reconnect with inner peace.”

OYENANO'S WISH FOR PEACE In current times, the world is dictated by violence and separation amongst human beings. The re...


In current times, the world is dictated by violence and separation amongst human beings. The recent pandemic weakened the most deprived of us. Today, there is another war which is killing people and deporting millions far from their home. Even if the nuclear threat is back on the table, isn't it a sign to remind us that the future of humanity is at stake? On top of that, our planet is being destroyed by meaningless ways of life which impoverishes most of its population and creates profound natural imbalances. Humanity is sick, a victim of an excess of individualism.

We the women, Oyenano Grandmothers, say no to war, no to violence, no to the destruction of our planet. We are totally revolted by so much suffering and cruelty affecting the world. Nothing can justify these self-destructing behaviors. This is not sustainable and we can not continue to accept participating in this model of society without issuing a cry of alarm.

In Gabon, women have always stood up to warrant peace and we have never known war in our country. The wisdom of the elders must be heard and spirituality must remain at the center of our existence. That's how we have always functioned.

We all have parents, grandparents and ancestors who suffered for us, who fought in order to leave us a better world. For our children and for the common good, we must prolong their efforts, learn from the past mistakes, and bring back peace at all levels of our existence.

Today we are sending out our wish which is a call for humanity to wake up.

In our heart, we feel there is a place where we can live together harmoniously, a place containing an infinite healing power. We can all reach that place. Thus, each one of us can have an impact and participate in changing the world. By becoming better human beings, by living a life that has a meaning to our heart, by loving ourselves and others, we can move mountains.

Love, empathy and awareness can be shared without limitation. By self-cultivating these qualities and spreading them around us, we are keeping a fire always going within us and we can ignite more fires among our brothers and sisters. Serving this greater purpose is our duty to and it starts in our everyday life. By saying hello to our neighbor, smiling to a stranger, and taking the time to listen to a child, we can make a big difference.

That is why we believe that the mission of the Oyenano Village is so important. Our goal is indeed to help people who want to find themselves, to reveal their full potential and to radiate their light to the world.

We are at a crossroad in humanity's history. The power to set up a golden age on this planet lies within our hands and it is up to each one of us as individuals to take concrete actions toward it.

This is our prayer.

Whatever our life situation is, today is the only time to take responsibility for the future we want.

In Peace,

The Oyenano Grandmothers are sending all their Love to you.

“I ask you for Big Help.

Our Elders tell us not to pray for money. We pray for Big Help. Because that is what we need.

It is not enough to do ceremony as a cultural expression. We need to continue the healing process beyond that. We need to pay attention to our youth, not shame them. Honor and cherish them as we do in ceremony. If we take them through the Rites of Passage, teach them the protocols that define the 7 sacred ceremonies, then we have a chance.

As they experience ceremony, our youth must also experience what it means to put together these ceremonies. Purchasing buffalo meat and tending to the 12 month curing process. Traveling hundreds of miles north to gather the chokecherries that climate change has pushed out of their - and our - native lands. Finding the few who still cultivate the hominy corn that has been around for thousands of years, those few who resist the push to hybridize and somehow perfect the corn we eat. Making ceremonial dress. Preparing the arbor. All of this requires alliance building, networking, protocols and guiding principles. All of this needs to be taught to the next generations.

I ask for your Big Help so that seven generations will experience Rites of Passage that make them feel loved, cherished and needed.”

As we prepare for our upcoming free online event, GRAND MÄ OFFERING: A Circle of Support, we will be featuring each of the Grandmothers causes, projects and organizations as per their guidance and instruction.

At this moment, we are inviting you to circle up in prayer and support of our beloved Grandmother Aama Bombo and her family, as she prepares to transition to the Spirit world. We ask you to hold her and her family in your thoughts and prayers for her comfort and peace, in sacred reciprocity as she has devoted her life-long service to the healing of humanity. Funds raised will go directly into Grandmother Aama’s Life Legacy Fund, supporting her current medical expenses, care-giving, end of life celebration and funeral costs, and her Life Legacy Fund causes.

Aama Bombo is a founding member of the International Council of Thirteen indigenous Grandmothers, she has been a vital part of the council's mission. Buddhi Maya Lama, also known as Aama Bombo, is a shaman in the Nepalese Tamang tradition. In Tamang Aama means mother and Bombo means shaman. Tamang people are all of Tibetan origin. Grandmother Amma was born in a small village in Nepal. After she was married, at age fifteen, she moved to Kathmandu. At the age of 25, Aama started shivering strongly. She could not eat and kept shivering for fourteen months. After seeing a Tamang shaman she understood that her dead father was manifesting through her. She was on a long initiation path before she began to practice as a healer. She is one of the first female shamans among the Tamang people and sees around 50 to 75 people a day at her home, near the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu. Grandmother Aama teaches about the Tamang traditions, spirituality, faith and healing.

Please join the Grandmothers and our global community in prayer for our dear spiritual teacher and elder, Grandmother Aama Bombo.

Thank you to all that have supported so far we are so grateful! 🙏🏽

Hello!☀️👋🏽 We see many new faces who have joined our page! We wanted to take a moment to introduce this work to you and tell you more about who we are and what we do. The Grandmothers Wisdom Project is an Earth based community actively building a bridge to support the living legacy of ancient traditions that gives us deeper insight into the mystery of life and the importance of honoring the connection that exists among all beings, nature and the cosmos. We are a collective of women devoted to the restoration and continuation of the feminine spirit regarding peace, justice, human rights, indigenous rights, environmental protection, and the health and welfare of children and the elderly, for today and the generations to come. In September of 2019 the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers and mä creative launched the book: Grandmothers Wisdom: Reverence for All Creation, a ground-breaking portrayal of traditional spiritual women and an inspiration for all. The stories are ageless wisdom of earth-based cultures that can benefit all people in today’s climate of disconnection, preparing and opening pathways for the future generations. Grandmothers Wisdom is a call to action, revitalizing our connection to what is sacred. We welcome you to learn more about the Grandmothers and to purchase our book in support of this great vision.
