saving our souls one tribe at a time.

About May 11, 2009

“Soulsisters” is a coin termed by the unstoppable Jen Lemen and adopted by one of her many partners-in-crime, Rachelle Mee-Chapman of Magpie Girl. It’s used to describe someone who is simpatico with a certain way of be-ing. In this case soulsisters are creative women with sensitive spirits, an irreverent sense of humor, and passions which simply cannot be denied. (Are you feeling it? Uh huh…I know you are!)


In an attempt to gather these souls into pockets of encouragement, support, and the occasional friendly kick-in-the-ass, Rachelle is launching  her first Soulsister’s Retreat in July of 2009. This site is currently set up to support that retreat.


If you are one of the FABU nine who are coming to this first gathering, all the info you need will be here. And if you aren’t — we wish you were!  Hold on…we’re coming your your way!We’re figuring out the nuts and bolts so your very own tribe can get born.  In the meantime browse around for some inspiration, and check out the Soulsister’s 09 blogs and sites for inspiration while you wait.


It’s the soulsister’s hope that from this one retreat a movment of localized groups will grow to help keep us sane as we live, and move, and have our be-ing. So keep dreaming! We’re saving creative souls one tribe at a time!


Much Warmth,
