Grandmother SaSa is a lifelong lover of the Earth and its People.
Recognized as a High Priestess, Dreamer, Seer, and Universal hands-on Healer. She was born in Central Maine to father of Abenaki, Scottish and Irish descent and to a Japanese mother.
In addition to her family lineage, as an Elder, Grandmother SaSa was blessed with the opportunity to gain much of her wisdom from other indigenous ways and follows the ancient and traditional ways of the Native ancestors.
As a child, Grandmother SaSa had many spirit conversations in dreamtime with a Grandmother. She knew one day that their paths would cross, and she would meet this Grandmother. The dreams became a reality when she met the elder Cherokee medicine woman Grandmother Nakai Breen (Rose of the River), who walked as a “Beloved Women of the People”.
Grandmother Nakai brought the Medicine Hoop of Life sacred ceremony into the world. The sacred ceremony came from the ancient ones, sent to humanity at a time that it would be needed for the healing of Earth and the people. It is a tool for our time, providing Humanity with access to cosmic, celestial, and universal guidance and healing.
After 20 years of mentoring and guiding, Grandmother Nakai entrusted and passed the Medicine Hoop of Life ceremony medicine on to Grandmother SaSa. Continuing the sacred legacy, Grandmother SaSa conducts the sacred ceremony twice a year, on the first Saturday of every June and every October. In addition, during the 20 years of mentorship and studying with Grandmother Nakai, Grandmother SaSa was compelled to evoke the remembrance of her own innate abilities.
Currently living in West Ossipee, New Hampshire, inspired by a vision received, Grandmother SaSa is the founder of The Rose and The Swan, a Center dedicated to healing the Healers. At The Rose and The Swan, she offers individual private sessions, group counseling, inspiration and sharing of wisdom. Encouraging all to remember, in order to fulfill that which they feel called to accomplish on this journey.
Grandmother SaSa and her husband, along with helpers also conduct sweat lodges, pipe ceremonies, the teachings of drumming, and beading in a traditional way. Grandmother SaSa has traveled internationally, throughout the United States and abroad, sharing her wisdom and depth of knowledge. Exemplifying her Trust in Spirit, Humanitarian work, Prayer, and Ceremony.
Filled with much love and compassion, she prays for all of humanity and the Healers of this Earth.
