This Crowfunding Project is dedicated to our beloved Crones, the Elders of the Clan, Sisters, Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, Wise Women who have committed to the Search of the memories of our erased past, to the Creation of new relationships among women, to the Imagination of a world other than the one they were born into. They have been working as Teachers in the Transmission of the knowledge they re-discovered along their paths, towards Caring, Healthy Sisterhood, the Weaving of Life and of the lives of blood and elective families, in the Construction of the Mother World and in Reclaiming the Wisdom of the Goddess.
In our western patriarchal time, these Women of Wisdom do not have the place they deserve. Instead of respect for their experience, value and countless resources, they are often kept on the sidelines, trying to forget their Being and to replace them with younger, more vulnerable and “productive” women. Sometimes they lack a satisfactory material or emotional support.
With this Project we want to draw attention and support to the knowledge and creative and educational humanity of the Elders, to the role of interior and practical guide they can offer younger people and all the components of families, groups, clans. A role and position that in matriarchal societies is widely recognized and practised, so much so that the Crones are the very center of society.
The creation of the fund Cauldron of the Crones will be an active and material support in the perspective of the Economy of the Gift, sustaining the Continuity of Life in the Crone phase.
Concretely, it will mean giving space to the ideas and activities proposed and guided by Crones, to make it possible for them going on in sharing their wisdom, competence, free gaze on the world without finding themselves in material difficulties, health problems, solitude, not “seen or heard”.
By collecting donations our aim is to involve an important number of Crones in teaching, creative initiatives, craft workshops, circles, conferences, seminars or to facilitate them in case of incidental subsistence needs.
