Sacred Feminine, San Miguel de Allende retreats, spiritual journey, Women's circles, Women's empowerment, Women's Retreats
Join us for this inaugural women’s gathering in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico as we connect with the essence of goddess wisdom, learn from women considered inspirational leaders in their fields and explore topics that include sacred feminine spirituality, ancient matriarchal cultures, ritual, creativity and the visionary path into this new time. Let us come together to nourish and transform ourselves and our world at this time of deep awakening.
I’ve been inspired, motivated, moved to organize this gathering of women. This idea has been with me for a number of years – pre Covid, even. Why, you might ask? As an artist, educator, spiritual seeker, pilgrim to sacred sites around the world, I have dedicated my work to celebrating the sacred feminine and women’s/feminist issues. Once I learned of our ancient matriarchal past and visited sites like the Temple of Knossos in Crete where there were priestesses and women were on an equal footing with men, my eyes were open and I saw the world differently. As a young woman, reading books like The Chalice and the Blade by Ryan Eisler, When God was a Woman by Merlin Stone, and Language of the Goddess by Marija Gimbutas I was astounded to find out that patriarchy has only been our social system for 6000 years vs 30,000 years of matriarchy. That’s when I began traveling to visit places like the paleolithic caves in South of France and Newgrange in Ireland to walk in the footsteps of our grandmothers – to feel the connection to ritual and cultures who revered women and Mother Earth. I’ve been inspired by my journeys, in my artwork and my life, to raise the voice of women – to shout out our power. (I will be sharing my journeys at the Gathering!) To imagine a future when women are given the same rights as men is a beautiful thing and a noble cause. My books, Art and Sacred Sites: Connecting with Spirit of Place and Symbols of the Spirit: A Meditative Journey Through Art chronicles my work into the Sacred Feminine.

“When women gather and call a circle, magic happens! It’s a time of connection and sharing, teaching and learning. Women have always gathered and women’s circles have always been around—whether at the kitchen table, stirring the cauldron, or at a quilting bee. Calling the Circle: A Sacred Feminine Gathering will be a joyful meeting of minds and hearts sure to inspire and empower. I’m honored to have such an amazing circle of women to help create this special event.”
