Once again, I'm asking for help remembering the 'Names' of our Spirit Sisters. Every 6 months, I ask and always swear to myself I will never forget any name again but alas I do forget - I can visualize each but the name evades me and I feel so bad. The only ones that come to mind as I write are Moopy, MamaG, and Marine911's wife (lindsey I think). Help Please!
For the newer ones here, I go to a Women's Retreat (Ft. Meade VA, So Dak) every 6 mths that we have the option to start the Retreat with a Lakota Sweat Lodge which I do, I like to have each name in my mind when I enter the Sweat.
A little info about the Retreat on the possibility that it might be appropriate for someone in the future. The weekend is totally free (including food and lodging) but getting there is personal expense. Though it is on a VA facility, it is totally privately funded primarily by a very generous Grant from DAV and other donations. The Staff all donate their time and are VA employees. Each Retreat is different but the overlaying theme is PTSD. It is for women vets and the colleratorals (wife/SO/sister/mother/daughter/etc.) of Vets with a PTSD DX. If anyone would like more info for themself or a loved one I'll be happy to give you more info and who to contact. These Retreats have been going on since mid '90's and as far as the Staff knows - the only ones of the kind.
