There is an experience in the United States that we remember because the women involved define themselves as beguines, but their adherence to beginal spirituality is not evident.
Sisters of the Valley, Kate and Darcy, live in Merced, California. They consider themselves “Beguines revivalists” because they product and sell online marijuana for therapeutic use, which in California is allowed but discussed. By this, they intend to alleviate the sufferings of many people and renew the ancient care of the beguines for the sick (today especially suffering of cancer). They claim New Age and consider themselves outside of any religion.
