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.

Gaia's Womb Presents: The Mothers of Change


She goes by many names; Gaia, Isis, Hera and Cybele, Ishtar, Astarte, and She is also the nameless one. She is Earth as Mother, an embodiment of the Divine Feminine, great symbol of the Earth’s fertility, the creative force in all nature. She is the mother of all things; ‘She who constantly gives birth to Herself.’

Throughout the centuries she has been the catalyst for change. Today, her words of wisdom still echo through our blood and our bones. Her voice still travels on the wind and the waters, and she whispers her secrets and her mysteries to those who know how to listen.

Join us as we call the sister tribe together this summer, bringing along two powerful presenters to remind us of who we are, and to teach us how to reconnect with the power of the Divine Feminine that resides within us. We'll be back at Dekoven Center, on the shores of Lake Michigan, in Racine, WI
