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.

Hallowed Halls Featuring: Ellen Lorenzi-Prince and Jacki Smith

  • Dekoven Center Racine, WI USA (map)

In the hallowed halls of the Temples of the Moon where things exist outside of time, the priestesses wander in contemplation. Bare feet on marble floors, these are the guardians and the guides of the sacred and the long forgotten. Here in the belly, scented with mystery, are the chronicles that have been in existence since since the singing of the song of creation; the holy records of all that has been, all that is, and all that will be.

And in the shadows of ancient columns She waits. She of many names, She of power and suffering, of sovereignty and transformation. The Dark Goddess. She has a message just for you.

Join us as we gather on the shores of Lake Michigan to introduce and welcome two new presenters at our 18th annual summer gathering for women.
