Lori Dixon is the Creative Founder of Sawubona Sister Gatherings. The sisterhood was a dream that was discussed amongst some of our collaborative team for several years before coming into fruition in late 2019. We find women are seeking true connections, to be SEEN for their authentic self, to be valued for who they are and their own brilliance and to further grow into who they aspire to be. Our group empowers women to re-envision their authentic self, activate their strengths and embrace their journey in life. Our Mission and Vision were written with the rising woman in mind, so that they may be SEEN and welcomed! We SEE you and we are here to help support you along your life's path.
We welcome YOU to Sawubona Sister Gatherings!
Our Mission is to SEE others in their beauty and purpose and to be SEEN in the uniqueness of ours as we influence and impact the overall conscious collective of rising women.
Our Vision Statement is to be women who are:
Enhancing our ideas, language, and actions (thoughts, beliefs, and practice) to welcome in a new dynamic legacy of sisterhood.
Lifting our expectations to a higher level for connection and interaction.
Willing to look deeper within ourselves and be open to exploring behind our challenges and reactions.
We also have seven "Sacred" Agreements that all sisters align to, you can read those agreements here
Because our Mission is to SEE others in their beauty and purpose and to be SEEN in the uniqueness of ours, we will always stand for mutual respect, equality and acceptance. Our hope is for love, kindness, justice and peace for all.
Join our Sisterhood
There are several membership options within our Sisterhood. The "Sawubona Sister" membership is complimentary and allows for sisters to pay individually for any activities that they desire, while the "Sawubona Soul Sister" membership is an upgraded, monthly subscription and is perfect for those sisters that want access to everything that is provided at a discounted rate. For more details on each membership level and to join the sisterhood, please click here for membership information.
We call our monthly events "gatherings" because that means "to join and unite". Each month, we have gatherings for Sisters to interact and connect with each other while also learning, growing and discussing topics of interest. Sawubona Soul Sisters receive a ticket to our monthly on-line events automatically as a part of their membership. Individual tickets are also available here on our Gatherings page. We plan our monthly discussions for the third Sunday of each month as often as possible, only adjusting these on-line gatherings when they conflict with holidays or special events. For our international sisters, we try to provide a video-recording of the monthly topic on a secured members only site, upon request. We invite gathering attendees to join early for SisterConnect time. This allows for socializing and connecting just like would occur if someone shows up early to an in-person event.
In addition to our monthly gatherings, we hold occasional retreats and Co-Lab's (collaborative events). These events are different formats from our monthly gatherings and are priced based on the event offering. These events will be listed as retreats or Co-Lab in order to clarify the difference in these events.
Our upcoming gatherings for the first quarter of 2021 include:
January 24, 2021* - Dreaming Your Vision in 2021
February 19 & 20, 2021 - Sawubona Co-Lab - a collaborative gathering focusing on work/business on Friday and life on Saturday. Join us for only one day, if you'd like, or both days.
March 21, 2021 - Framing Your Life and Work in 2021
*Note: this is a date exception and is on the 4th Sunday of the month.
We look forward to SEEing you at an upcoming Gathering soon!
