Sedna’s Daughters: Healing from Family Estrangement

Families in patriarchal cultures often mete out similar types of domination and oppression on their daughters that women experience in the larger world. For many daughters (and sons/trans/genderqueer folks), this includes scapegoating and rejection. Sedna’s Daughters provides a safe space for discussion on earth-based, spiritual approaches to healing from the confusing experience of family estrangement and recognizes all people's inherent belonging to Mother Earth, the human family, and the cosmos.

  I have a Ph.D., am a college-level educator, and was shunned by my maternal biological kin and their family friends over a decade ago. I have built an international community of daughters committed to supporting one another and thriving despite the aggression of our relatives. “Sedna” is the EuroAmerican name of a revered Inuit Creatrix who was violently rejected by her parents and cast into the sea to die, but instead survived to create otters, seals, and whales. “Sedna” is also the name of a star, which has aspects in every human’s astrological chart. She is one of the original Mothers of the Sea and is a vital cultural component of some Indigenous nations of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
