Volunteers went for a "giving and pampering Day" for the Lakota Women on the Rosebud, South Dakota Reservation. Energy Workers, Massage Therapists, Beauticians, Artists! We caravaned from New England on June 30, 2007. It took 3 days to get to Rosebud. People came from other locations, Barbara from Boulder, and Diane and Kelly from Hill City, SD.
We shared our talents there and pampered the women. July 4th was the magic day!
We put together gift packages for the women : Beauty products, jewelry, etc.
It was a shared vision of love and abundance! Thank You!
May Peace come more and more.
