Pat Mc Cabe - Woman Stands Shining
Woman Stands Shining is of the Diné Nation, resides in Taos, New Mexico. She is a mother contributing four sons to the Sacred Men’s Nation and one Daughter to the Sacred Women’s Nation on behalf of Thriving Life. Trained to attune to the Instruction of the Mother Earth during menstruation, she has been enacting these Instructions for how to be and move at this time. Much of her work has been in the remembering and reframing of the spiritual capacity of Women’s Nation, largely hidden, misrepresented, or distorted. Her instruction led her to convene a healing ceremony to realign the “archetypal wounding to humanity” that occurred during what is referred to as “the witch hunts” in Europe. A primary interest at this time is in the remembering/recreation of the vocabulary, narrative, and understanding of the language of the Sacred Masculine. The second “archetypal wounding of humanity” she is called to consider is the healing of humanity’s head long dive into material science, reductionist thought, or “western Science” as our principal modality of knowing, and basis for participating in “reality.” This has been at the expense of the Feminine Principle of the ancient sciences of receiving understanding from the other/more-than-human.
