Gaia's Womb

Gaia's Womb Changes Lives

Welcome to the Sisterhood!

Imaging the Divine as intimate partners helps to balance consciousness of the sacred and heal the distortions of the current, rigid patriarchal systems in both our religions and our governments. 

On this site, you’ll find weekend experiences for women, with presenters we love, whom past attendees have suggested, and whom we hold in great regard. They have made, through one medium or another, a resonant and lasting impression, which is not an easy feat in these times in which we live.

You'll find Rites of Passage that honor the phases of womanhood, from First Blood to Croning, and that attune to the Divine Feminine as a creative source both immanent and transcendent. Gaia - She who constantly gives birth to Herself.

We present our weekends in the spirit of learning, laughter, and a longing for connection and creative thinking with other human beings. We invite you to bring your heartfelt curiosity, your skepticism, your sadness, your fears, and your joy to any one of our wonderful, interactive weekends.

We want to know you. We want to know how you move through the world.




Celebrating Our 20th Year

Gaia's Womb Presents: A Long & Winding Road

A Winter retreat for women

February 23, 24, 25, 2018


For 20 years a 'long and winding road' has led thousands of women to, and through the door of  Gaia's Womb. Together we have celebrated the Divine Feminine within ourselves, and recognized Her within our sisters. We have acknowledged the Rites of Passage that are unique to women, among them; First Blood, Mother Blessings, Childbirth, Menopause, and Cronings, and we have created a safe space for the individual to embrace her own experiences, and the shared experiences that come along with being female, in a world that often views us as second class citizens.  

We have lived and learned together, laughed and cried with one another, welcomed a new generation of young women, and said the final goodbye to those beloved sisters who have crossed the veil, and journeyed on to other realms. 

This year, we we stand at the crest of 20 years. We look back across the landscape of what has been, and forward to what will be, and we invite you to come to the respite that is a Gaia's Womb weekend. 

Join us for a joy-filled weekend of drumming, dance, and song! We are welcoming back Drum Mistress, Helen Bond; co-founder of Gaia's Womb, and much loved presenter, Barbara McGraw, beloved wise-woman and sister,  en-Chantress, Shel Skau, and Guardian-Cat-Herder, and Founder, Angie Buchanan.

Let the long and winding road of your life lead you to our door.
