Sacred Women International
Sacred Women International (SWI ) is an organization that Inspires individuals to realize their highest vision, live with purpose and influence change in their families, communities and throughout the world.
SWI focuses on building the emotional, mental, economical and spiritual well being of individuals who are ready and willing to embrace their power so they may experience their desires, lead from a place of inner power and “Be The Change."
Since 2009 SWI has been inspiring political and social activism through the teaching of Universal Principles and Ancient Practices to individuals in North America, the Caribbean and Africa.
SWI believes everyone can experience their deepest desires/visions if they have access to the tools, principles and practices that enable these desires/visions. SWI remains inspired by the knowing that emotional, mental, physical and economic wellness can most effectively be achieved when each individual practices peaceful and purposeful living- Spiritual Activism.
"I am so thankful to the ancestors that I found Sacred Women when I did. It has changed my life for the better and helped me to rediscover the magic in my life. I feel that good things have been coming my way and I affirmed my ability to manifest abundance."
