Birth of the CD
This song compilation arises from the journey of 13 women to the mountains of New Mexico in 1985. Our focus was to celebrate and cultivate women’s wisdom and deep resonance with our wild selves and Earth. We called ourselves Diana Earthmission, a humorous reflection upon our commitment to life on earth, as compared to Apollo Space Mission. Diana was the Roman goddess related to the wilds, the moon, and to birth. Committed to a re-balancing and care taking the Earth, we dedicate these songs, and profits from this CD, to the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. Thirteen Grandmothers is an alliance of elders who strive to share earth-based wisdom in hopes of encouraging awakening in a world-out-of-balance, so that we may remember and renew our natural relationship between ourselves and Earth. Thirteen is an auspicious number considered sacred in many traditions.
