Soul Sisters was born out of the friendship of Rickie Byars and Greta Sesheta. Inspired by each other and a shared connection to the Divine through music, movement, and wisdom, they gathered a community of women transcending their differences and forging deep spiritual connections through creative expression, compassion and empowerment.
Each year since 1999, hundreds of women from all walks of life, preteens to elders, strangers and friends, have come together to laugh and cry, share their knowledge and insights, and change the stories that would deny their greatness to ones that affirm it.
Soul Sisters Today honors these beginnings and assures its legacy by increasing the number and types of gatherings and creating online resources that provide year-long opportunities to celebrate, engage, connect and grow in awareness that at the level of the Soul. We are One.

Byars dedicates much of her time to social activist causes including Voices 4 Freedom, an abolitionist organization that works to free the70-million modern-day slaves around the world, and Kuumba in Motion, a non-profit educational initiative that empowers children to discover their inherent gifts and talents through exposure to nature, the arts and creative sciences.
