"Going Deep Within-- Sometimes we have to understand what is within us before we can make a change. How do we do that?"

Submit your exploration of our 2014-15 Tor Stone theme by answering this question in poetry, prose, fiction, song, photography, art, & more.

We are now accepting submissions on a rolling basis.
For specific details, please visit The Tor Stone.

The Sisterhood of Avalon has always been an organization that creates a safe space for women to seek their sovereignty and develop a strong connection to the Isle of Avalon and the Welsh Goddesses. In Fall 2013, the SOA updated our mission statement and bylaws to include more sensitivity across the gender spectrum, broadening our definition of "woman" to include transwomen. The announcement to our membership included the following:

"The Council of Nine and the Board of Trustees would like to update our community on recent changes to the SOA's membership policy regarding transgender and intersex women. We are pleased to announce that our policy on membership has been expanded to include any person who self-identifies and currently lives as a woman. This decision is the result of both much inner work and a continuing conversation between the Council of Nine and Board of Trustees that has been taking place over a period spanning several years.

As an organization that emphasizes healing and personal sovereignty we are proud to welcome all women to walk their path along the shores of this Isle of Healing, our Isle of Avalon."

Since this announcement, the policy has been met with overwhelming support from our membership. The Board of Trustees and Council of Nine hope to continue to provide a safe place for all self-identifying women to Remember, Reclaim, and Renew.
