Return ~

SISTERS, IT’S TIME AGAIN TO Come Home TO THE WOMEN’S GROVE.

I warmly, invite you to join me this Summer, under the big Colorado Sky ~ at majestic Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary. During 3 Land-Based Women’s Retreats, we will invoke, cultivate, recognize, revitalize, honor, and ritualize ~ how to resource ourselves through Women’s Community, and the ways of our Foremothers, in these burning times on Planet Earth.

Together, we’ll reconnect with in the many medicines of this land, and drop in to what is true ~ both personally and collectively ~ in the moment. As always, we’ll go deep, do our Healing work, and explore the embodiment of who it is that we are meant to be in the times ahead.

We’ll bathe ourselves in the honied unconditional love of Sisterhood ~ as vital, necessary resource for effectively showing up. Utilizing Herbal Allies, the elements of the land, women’s healing ways, female embodiment practices, and the magic of women’s Ritual ~ we’ll come home to our bodies, the Earth, and each other.

Welcome Home to The Women’s Grove ~

THE WOMEN’S GROVE IS A Safe AND Sacred SPACE, WHERE WE’RE FED THE ESSENTIAL SOUL-FOOD OF WOMANHOOD. 

Here, we Practice ~

  • Instinctual & Expressive Movement
  • Herbal & Earth-Based Healing, and…
  • The Art of Women’s Ritual

Our time together is ~

  • Soul-Nourishing
  • Body-Centered
  • Female-Empowering
  • Nature-Sourced, and…
  • Infused with Beauty, every step of the way.

Our Ways are rooted in the recognition of ~ 

  • Our Birthright to Reclaim our Female Body Wisdom.
  • Our Responsibility to Reconnect with Nature. 
  • Our Pleasure in Rebirthing our Creative Female Power, in these times. 

Here, we remember what we need in order to thrive, and courageously commit to who we are becoming. Again and again, our posturing, effort-ing, masks, resistance, and inhibitions fall away. A deeper sense of purpose emerges, and our experience of female empowerment takes root.

In the Grove, every flavor of YOU is welcome. This compassionate welcoming creates a unique alchemy ~ one of deep intimacy with yourself, the other women in the Grove, and The Great Feminine…

Embracing the Medicine of this Season ~

It was a long, dark Winter. Yet, the height of the year has returned, with its heat and power.

We gather in The Women’s Grove this Summer, to synchronize with the life-giving Light, and abundant power that Summer brings. What will we grow? 

WE’LL COLLECT FRESH HERBS FROM THE LAND FOR OUR HERBAL Healing BATHS. WE’LL MOVE & SING WITH WHAT IS, AND SIT WITH THE SACRED FIRE, REIGNITING THE FLAME OF OUR COMMITMENTS. 

Together, we’ll listen to the bird’s songs, the wind’s song, and the symphony of the Creek waters that flow so abundantly here in this season. We’ll open our eyes to the green light of the plants, and open our hearts to each other. By firelight and starlight, we’ll fill ourselves with the creative power of Women’s Wisdom.   

Through Embodiment Practices, Land-Based Healing, and Women’s Ritual, we’ll explore ~

  • Synchronizing ourselves with the rhythms of this season of Heat, Growth, and Power.
  • Receiving support and guidance from the land. 
  • Utilizing Herbal Allies for empowerment, on all levels.   
  • Reconnecting with, and harenssing the resource of Women’s Community. 
  • Healing ourselves so that we can keep showing up. 
  • Harvesting the Elemental Medicine of the Season.

The Ways of The Women’s Grove ~

WOMEN’S EMBODIMENT PRACTICE

Using the female body as our Temple, Portal, Teacher, and Guide, we practice ~ instinctual & expressive movement, vocalization, womb self-massage, subtle internal pelvic awareness, and more. As we enter the genuine, in-the-moment embodied experience, we learn to befriend and welcome what is already here. We practice feeling what we feel, and coming to know consciously, what we already know intuitively, instinctually ~ as we drop-in, below the busy-ness of the mind. The body never lies. And from this place of honesty, our essence is more authentically expressed from within. Our own, direct, genuine, felt experience becomes the source of our wisdom. Rather than looking to scriptures, patriarchs, or dusty dogma, we learn to find our way with the fresh, alive pulse of the Here and Now.

HERBAL & EARTH-BASED HEALING

Synchronizing with the rhythms of the land and utilizing the gifts of the plants, Moon, and Sun ~ we reconnect with our own inherent wholeness. This is what Healing is. The foundation of Land-Based Healing is the fact that we are all, undeniably, earth-centered beings, and that as women ~ through our Blood Rites ~ we embody a phenomenal connection with the Earth. Together, we’ll receive the medicine of Eagle Prairie’s many Herbal Allies, both cultivated and wild, as well as the big sky, flowing waters, and sacred fire. The pulse of the Season when we gather, is central to our exploration, and is in this case ~ the Bounty of Summer. Through our Earth-based practices, we come back home to the infinite support and guidance that is always here.

WOMEN’S RITUAL

Ritual ignites our collective wisdom and fortifies our inherent Creative Power as women. For thousands of years, women have gathered in sacred space, at auspicious timing ~ to honor, worship, and reconnect with the source of The Great Feminine. Unlike other spiritual practices, Women’s Ritual is a non-dogmatic, timeless, ever-evolving Art & Technology. In the old ways, we gather with a shared Intention to ‘open the door’. With your expert Guide, the skillful container provided will assist you in stepping through that door. We’re all encouraged to ‘bring what we’ve got’, authentically in the moment. Who we are is our offering. Ritual elements for these gatherings include Plant Brushing, Herbal Healing baths, movement, singing, and evening fire circles.

Meet Your Guide ~

Hello! It’s Marianah Jade here. I’m a Hearth-Keeper, Co-Founder at Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary, Founder of The Women’s Grove, wife to my soul mate of 15 years, mother to an extra-ordinary 13 year old girl, Folk Herbalist, Celtic Folk Harp Musician, and baker.

As a masterful Craftswoman in the timeless art & technologies of Women’s Circle, for the last 15 years, I’ve guided thousands of women all over the world through practices, rituals, retreats, and teachings focused on Female Embodiment and Spirituality ~ both privately and in groups, in person & online.

My greatest qualifications as a Mentor and Guide, are born of my own life experiences and Initiations through the Rites of Womanhood. I have given birth on my hands and knees ~ in all of my female power ~ on my own bedroom floor. I’ve faced a life-threatening pelvic injury… and prevailed. I have healed myself of chronic illness, with the help of my Plant Allies. And I’ve created a life that is aligned with my deepest Purpose, as I know it to be, even as it’s changing. I’ve placed myself at the center of my life, and have courageously let go again and againin service of growth and evolution.

Like all conscious women who make it to mid-life, I carry a substantial, multi-flavored Cornucopia of Women’s Wisdom to share. I’m proud of my Harvest, as I’ve weathered many storms to gather it. It brings my life into full circle, when I get to share it with you.

I owe many of the tools, skills, and wisdom that I have in my life ~ to the guidance, care, skillfulness, safe containers, and transmissions that I’ve received from my Wise Woman elders. Now, it’s my turn to give back what has been gifted to me.

Stories From the Women’s Grove ~

Martha Hartney
Attorney and Counselor at Law ~ Hartney Family and Estate Law

“…Here I discovered that I’m not alone as a woman and that my internal guidance systems are not unique to me but are shared by all women. I found that the inner voice speaking truth to me all along, is heard by all of my sisters in one form or another. I found myself willing to submit more fully to this knowing…I found compassion for other women’s ‘lost-ness’ in a world dominated by the masculine, and…a woman whispering our secrets back to me, reminding me of what we know. Gently, sensually, sacredly inviting me into my body, into my femininity, my creative center. I found a guide, Marianah Jade, who has devoted herself to understanding the subtle rhythms of the feminine that float under everything that is, often without our notice. She helped me see that in those subtle waves exist a vast, thronging passion of love and devotion and acceptance. Patiently, oh so delicately, she reintroduced me to my magical core, calling out my true nature and showing me places where I can tap into my subtle powers, my cycles, and the wisdom of our foremothers. My wish would be for all the women I love to experience this tribe of womanly power and love that Marianah Jade nurtures. Here we find a home for the weirdness of our womanhood, and give time and space for our powers to heal, process, transform, express, create, and develop ~ so that we all experience the divine feminine within us, and allow it to change the world…”  ~ Martha

Lesley Glenner 
Owner, Founder ~ HoloBeing Holistic Wellness Institute 

“Marianah Jade…offered me a reflection of myself that was beautiful, whole, and goddess-like. She assumes the best and honors those in her presence in ways subtle and grandiose ~ creating a container of sacred intimacy, feminine attune-ment, skillful transformation, and fun. As a bride to-be, I can think of no better way to step into an embodied feminine experience of myself. The practices Marianah Jade offered have continued to serve me in my life and relationships. I have been more aware of my power as a woman, I have been more available to my partner when I honor my needs for feminine practice, and I have helped other women in transition, to remember their feminine obligations to their truth. I would not hesitate to recommend this to ANY woman who wants to feel good in her world.” ~ Lesley

Katie Wise 
Singer, Songwriter ~ Katie Wise and Bhakti Explosion 

I found Marianah Jade’s groups to be the one space where I could let my shoulders fall, my guard drop, and my true emotions surface. I felt that I could say and feel anything, and it wouldn’t be deemed “wrong” or inappropriate. I loved connecting with the other women, and knowing that I am not alone. It is wonderful to find a space where authenticity is appreciated and tears are seen as a sign of strength. I am grateful to have crossed paths with such a wise, compassionate, and deeply spiritual teacher at this time in my life. ~ Katie

“This work is authentic, deep, magical, true, profound, and transformational. Marianah Jade calls forth the depths from her students and allows the beautiful and painful truths to emerge and transform in healing ways. She is an incredibly skilled facilitator who is intuitive and able to work with powerful energy, welcoming both the light and the darkness.” ~ Danya

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up…and it was exactly what I needed, infusing me with grounded-ness and joy. Marianah opened my eyes to the power of the moon, which is something I’ve rarely even considered before…and oh the power of the moon! With her loving guidance, I felt it’s open reign like never before and connected into an altered state of receptivity, truth, and raw power. Marianah Jade is a true master at what she does. She is earth mother, female connector, woman empower-er, spirit guider, and leader. This is an experience I want again. Thank you for leading such a necessary event!!!” – Cynthia

Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary ~

The Women’s Grove Summer Retreats take place at Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary, Marianah Jade’s family homestead in the beautiful Niwot area of Colorado.

Eagle Prairie is just a scenic 10 minute drive from North Boulder, on 4 acres. With sweeping views of the majestic mountains, we’re surrounded by hundreds of acres of cow and horse pastures and wild, Boulder County Open Space. Everything that we do here, is informed by our deepening relationship with the life and seasons of the Land. 

We’ll gather outdoors for these gatherings, with incredible views of the Flatirons ~ near the Creek, out in the wild prairie with abundant wildlife, and/or at one of the Fire Circles. 

I look forward to welcoming you Home.
