Come for a blissful weekend filled with magic, sisterhood, and deep connection to the rhythms of the Earth!
Once again, women will gather together in the coastal redwoods of California among the enchanted energies of Mother Nature to honor the Goddess, ourselves, and one another. For three days we live together in this sacred setting, partaking of powerful workshops, rituals, singing, drumming, dancing, and the dynamic vitality of female-focused intentional community.
Guided by world renowned Priestesses and leaders, you can learn to identify and use herbs, hone your skills in the ancient Amazon art of archery, contribute your voice as we pass the rattle, develop ritual skills, empower yourself through the sacred archetypes of women, and much, much more.
Each day we offer a variety of workshops and opportunities for learning. Choose to attend as few or as many as you like, or simply relax, swim in the pool, hike through the woods, listen to the music, enter into deep discussion, shop with our hand-selected vendors, or just sit quietly and meditate in this sacred space.
Evenings are reserved for us to come together in the Gaia Bowl, our sacred ritual space of "Fire & Light." It is here that we call to the Goddess and weave our magic; honor and invoke our Foremothers; hold Initiation and Ordination rituals; and drum, dance, and sing our prayers for ourselves and the Earth!
All of nature is just a step outside your cabin door. All meals are prepared for us. There is no work duty, no food to cook, no dishes to do. Your only responsibility is to come with an open heart and open mind, find connection through Sisterhood, and share your energies in this movement for social change.
Come and meet us Between the Worlds, outside of mundane space and time, to find rejuvenation and renewed purpose!
