Dear Standing Women,

The unity that many of us feel when we stand together for a better world, is being cultivated by many global moments and gatherings. Standing Women is pleased to partner with Gather the Women to share some of the on-going possibilities for enhancing our sense of global unity and true relationship. Please read over GTW's July Newsletter and participate where you are called...


Women gathering is not a trivial action. It is a movement toward life itself, as we give ourselves the opportunity to grow and evolve more authentic relationships. And true and loving relationships are not only essential in these critical times, but also sweet respite and hope.

We are pleased to share with you the following summer happenings that call us into relationship, with ourselves, with each other, with the entire network of women arising... Notice how many ways women have found to gather... in person, on the Internet, in teleconferences, simultaneously in different localities, to meditate and pray, to grow, to inspire, to act...

Opportunities to gather in deep relationship:

  • GTW's web radio conversations this coming weekend, July 18-20, as GTW coordinators and friends gather in St. Cloud, Minnesota, to deepen relationships, gather our wisdom, and explore next steps.

  • Evolutionary Women's gathering in Baltimore, Maryland, "Freedom to be all that I am", Aug 15-17, co- creating an environment of trust to bring every woman's unique passion forward.

  • Telecall meditations with Vessels of Peace, every Sunday, transmitting peace and love to the planet.

  • Webcast and teleconference Women's Global Roundtable with PeacexPeace, every Tuesday, featuring dialogue with women around the world who are making a difference.

More details:

July 18-20. GTW's web radio conversation from St. Cloud, MN.

As GTW coordinators and friends gather in person, to reflect on past gatherings and future collaborations, we invite women to gather with us virtually, to call in and hear one another’s voices…as together we build awareness of what is being asked of women at this time on the planet.

We will be using an Internet radio connection for at least an hour each day, beginning as follows:
Fri July 18, 8 pm, PST;
Sat July 19, 8 pm, PST;
Sun July 20, 9:30 am, PST.
Go to, and click PLAY to listen to our daily excitement, and/or call in at 1-347-838-8753 to share your voice and perspective. We'll be waiting for your call!

Aug 15-17. Evolutionary Women’s gathering, "Freedom to be all that I am", in Baltimore, Maryland.

"Women all over the world are awakening to the desire to participate in what is emerging. In this weekend, we will look deeply into ourselves to free the qualities within us that are our unique contributions at this critical time. In a supportive and resonant environment of women, we will honor and expand our highest creative expressions to serve ourselves, our communities and the Whole. [See EvWomen flyer for more detail.]

Every Sunday. Vessels of Peace meditations for global peace.

"Our Sunday evening meditations strengthen our connection with Gaia/Earth and all her creatures. They are MORE than “just a meditation.” They serve as a vehicle to send love and peace wherever it is needed. Whether you visualize this connection as a net, a web or a prayer shawl, the image helps us see our planet as one entity." EVERY Sunday for a year (we began March 23, 2008). At 5pm PT/ 6pm MT/ 7pm CT/ 8pm ET for 45 minutes. No reservations necessary. Call number: 1-712-775-7000, pin: 408488#. See the July VoP Newsletter for more details.

Every Tuesday. PeacexPeace partners with UNIFEM in their Women's Global Roundtable webcast and teleconference.

"Join us each week as we celebrate the unsung “ordinary” women of the world and their extraordinary actions. Listen to their stories, learn about their challenges and triumphs, connect across cultures, and continue the conversation inside the Global Network." See more details at
