Lisa Thiel is a incredibly gifted singer...a visionary artist and ceremonial musician. Her healing
prayer chants and songs are among the most popular in the women's spirituality movement today.
Originally a Holistic Healing professional in the Los Angeles area, she began creating her music as
an expressionof her own process of growth and healing. As a result, her music is an authentic reflection of
her journey to self-discovery and spiritual transformation. The songs she receives are given to her as gifts.
She has had a fabulous journey into her own spirit which she shares with all of us through her
music. With a clear, dynamic and soulful voice, Lisa touches the journey part in her listeners.
Her goal is to awaken and celebrate the spirit of the Wise Women in us all.

Camp Sister Spirit News
We raised $5,000 of the needed $10,000 land
payment at the 8th Gulf Coast Womyn's Festival.
We will continue to fund raise the rest of the year
for the remainder of the money. June 1st we will
welcome a slide show from Lesbian Herstory
Archives. July 4th through the 6th we will have a
Giant "Family" Lawn Sale or Bozar Bazaar!
Other groups will set up with Camp Sister Spirit
as well as crafts persons. All are welcome.
We ask a donation of $7 to $13 for
working visits and $10-$20 for non-working visits.
The rates are per night and include meals. One
must call ahead at least three days in advance
for reservations. We now have facilities for men
and women, as well as acres of RV and tent
space (no hookups, yet!).
During September, we will offer jelly
making classes. In October, we would like to hear
from interested Moms for a "Mother and Son"
camp out. Our mission to Isla Mujeres, Mexico
(our 8th trip) will be in November. We need folks
(all welcome) to help carry in needed supplies to
the Red Cross outpost. Isla Mujeres (Island of
Women) is off the coast of CanCun. Flights,
rooms and food are most affordable. We will go
Thanksgiving week. There are two double beds
and a single in each room. So five folks to a room
could be possible if you wanted to be that close(!)
and cut costs. For more details on these
adventures or to be on the mailing list contact

Brenda Henson was interviewed in the
Hattiesburg American, March 31,1996. "Sister
Spirit, Inc will be 7 years old November 1996.
Camp Sister Spirit will be 3 years old July 1996.
Sister Spirit Inc. is a charitable, IRS-recognized
organization committed to providing people
counseling, information, education, referral,
advocacy, and meeting space to address social
issues... We are working to create a cooperative
space for learning non-oppressive lifeways. We
have a sister 6-year-old project at Isla Mujeres,
Mexico. Volunteers travel to this tiny island each
fall, taking medical supplies and making available
self-sufficiency, skills-building and education
opportunities. We work with the Mexican Red
Cross Outpost, distributing supplies and teaching
classes. Last year we taught carpentry; this year
we will teach advanced carpentry."
Impact, a New Orleans lesbian gay
newspaper featured a review of the Gulf Coast
Womyn's Festival by Marilyn McConnell. "From
April 4-7 women from all over the world gathered
for lesbian entertainment, to hear lesbian authors
discuss their books and poetry, to attend
workshops led by lesbians who are authorities in
their respective fields or just enjoy the nurturing
company of women. The azaleas and dogwoods
are blooming after an unusually harsh southern
winter. The creek is full and running fast through
"One of the proudest additions to the
Sister Spirit Complex this year is the library. Now
housed in its own room, the library contains every
lesbian/feminist/women's book you've ever read
or want to read. ...The weather at the festival was
unusually cold this year, but the warmth of seeing
old friends, meeting new ones, watching the
. children grow over the years, watching the land
develop, and seeing the buildings and new
programs is what you take away with you, and
what stays with you throughout the year."
