Invitation to Gather for Reflection on 10th Anniversary of 9/11

Women of Spirit and Faith
invites you to gather with other women
for reflection, connection and prayer
on the
10th Anniversary of September 11.

September 11, 2001 was a powerful moment in our human history,
one that continues to reverberate and echo in our hearts and minds.
The 10th Anniversary is the perfect time to gather with others to reflect upon the events of that day,
to honor those who died, and to affirm a hopeful future for our human family.

Women of Spirit and Faith invites you to join a local gathering
or to host your own circle gathering during the anniversary weekend September 10-12, 2011.

Your gathering can be large or small … a community event or an intimate circle experience …
indoors or out in nature …. in conversation or in silence…. joyful or prayerful.

Follow your heart.
Invite a circle of women to join you.
Gather.
Invite Spirit into the center of your circle.
Speak from your heart.
Listen.
Breathe in and out together.
Join you energy with the many thousands who will gather around the world.

We offer these questions to focus your circle sharing:

What has changed in the world as a result of 9/11?
What is your vision for a world of peace and compassion post 9/11?
How have you changed since that day?
What was born in you on 9/11?

We offer Circle guidelines and resources on our website
We also encourage you to join a new national movement
September 11, 2011: Empowering people to look within and reach out on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11.
In honor of those lost on 9/11 and in its decade-long aftermath, congregations and communities will commemorate the past, listen to one another’s stories,
and create a shared moral vision of a world that is better than the one we have today.

On the Groundswell site, you can post your event or search for 9/11 events in your area at
