Hello and Welcome!

I’m Marianah Jade {Patrice Marianah Jade Montesano Bacal}.

I find myself in the potency of Middle Age, with over two decades of sincere, thorough, devoted, passionate, and relentless study & practice of Women’s Embodied Spirituality; and well over a decade of experience as a facilitator of the beauty & safety of Women’s Ways. I’ve inspired, taught, and created sacred spaces for thousands of women all over the world, both in-person and online. 

I’m also the Land Stewardess at Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary, my family’s homestead & community retreat space. As wife to my soul-mate, mother of a truly extraordinary 12 year old coming-of-age girl, Herbalist, Celtic Folk Harp musician, avid baker, I’m also now a woman in the midst of my peri-menopausal Metamorphosis.

Like all conscious women who make it this far, I carry a substantial, multi-flavored Cornucopia of Women’s Wisdom to share. I’m proud of my harvest, as I’ve courageously weathered many fierce {and some downright frightening} storms to gather it. It brings my life into full circle and color, whenever I get to share it…especially with those who are thirsty for something real…

I believe that I can make a difference in our world, if I just keep living into what I love with a passion.

I love that moment in the midst of our Women’s Ways, when the Circle. Breaks. Open…

One woman moans with a longing so old and so deep, it may just be the voice of an ancestor…Another falls into the lap of a sister and weeps tenderly, remembering for the first time what mother-love really is. And yet another woman’s voice breaks into the kind of laughter that makes you wonder. We all begin to glisten in the moist, life-giving beauty of Womanhood. And it spills over into the room, and into the soil of the land, making our vegetables sweeter. It goes back home to husbands and kids, and love-mists the skin on their faces. It fills up our community cups with compassion, and quenches the creative thirst at our work places, and on and on, and beyond…

Pulsing. Tapping the Source to drink deep. Ahhh…We’ve arrived.

SO, HERE I AM. Will you join me?
