Andrea Menard is Grandmother Wind


Humanity is entering the time of the Sacred Feminine. As a proud advocate for Mother Earth, gender equality, rematriation, reconciliation and unity amongst all nations, Andrea was born to lead others through this transition from the Sacred Masculine to Rise of the Sacred Feminine. 

Andrea aspires to find balance and meaning in the simple, natural things in life. Always a spiritual student, her work as a spiritual teacher was born the day she accepted her traditional Cree name, Notigwew Yutin, which means Grandmother Wind in English. 

As Andrea gradually came to terms with the depth and responsibility of this name, she began connecting to her ancestral Grandmothers from the Spirit realm, whom she lovingly calls the Patchwork Grandmothers. 

Grandmother Wind uses her grandmotherly wisdom to help both women and men embody qualities of the Sacred Feminine. Through honouring, receptivity, inclusion, emotional release, sound healing, and prayer, Grandmother Wind teaches you how to connect more deeply with Mother Earth, your authentic Self and the Goddess within. 

“I can personally attest to the healing that took place in the wake of Andrea’s participation in the New Sun Conference.”
— Dr. Allan J. Ryan, New Sun Chair in Aboriginal Art and Culture, Associate Professor, Canadian Studies/Art History
