Crafty Sisterhood Retreats

These workshops were created to offer members the opportunity to have immersion experiences with others working in the Private Domain. Come get educated on Applying Your Rights as a Sovereign Being, learn about Natural Law, take back your family heritage and study Ancestral Storytelling or build your own Family Council. These retreats are held in family trust villages where the government has not reach. We teach skill building and community sharing activities to strengthen ourselves and each other. To participate in retreats, we invite you to Join Alighten as a Member.
