THE WOMEN’S GROVE Experience

A LAND-BASED, HARVEST SEASON WOMEN’S CIRLCE

6 Retreats | Sept. 19th – Nov.1st  | AT EAGLE PRAIRIE LAND SANCTUARY ~ NIWOT, CO

It’s Time to Shine ~

WOMEN, IT’S TIME TO Shine…

When a woman is in her power ~ connected with her instincts, intuition, and inner voice, fully expressed as who she is, at home with herself in her own skin, resourced in body, heart, and soulShe becomes a beacon of light, even in the darkest times.

In this unusual moment in history/ herstory, it’s going to take everything we’ve got to stay grounded and show up for the changes, while cultivating our innermost gifts.

In the midst of all of the instability we’re facing, in the coming months ~ pumpkins will ripen, apples will fall, and the light of the Harvest Moon will shine for all.

SO WILL WE. 

Welcome Home to The Women’s Grove ~

THE WOMEN’S GROVE IS A Safe AND Sacred SPACE WHERE FEMALE LEADERS ARE FED THE ESSENTIAL SOUL-FOOD OF WOMANHOOD.

Here, every flavor of you is welcome, creating a unique alchemy of deep intimacy with yourself, the other women in the Grove, and The Great Feminine. Posturing, effort-ing, masks, resistance, and inhibitions melt away. A deeper Purpose emerges, and our experience of female empowerment takes root.

During 6 Land-Based Retreats, in this intimate Harvest Season Women’s Circle, we’ll drop-in even deeper together, cultivating/ generating/ growing/ and rediscovering our Light ~ those innermost gifts, the radiance of who we are, our wisdom-voices and inner truth, and more.

Embracing the Medicine of the Season ~

In this unusually dark and fertile time, we gather in The Women’s Grove this Harvest Season, to synchronize with the life-giving Light that is within each of us. Together, we’ll take our place as the leaders and mothers in these changing times, and co-create new ways of being.

We practice, heal, and ritualize for the benefit of ourselves, each other, our families and communities, and the world. 

TOGETHER WE’LL DRINK MEDICINAL ROOTS FROM THE LAND, MOVE & SING WITH WHAT IS, SIT WITH THE SACRED FIRE, AND REIGNITE THE FLAME OF OUR COMMITMENTS.

We’ll listen to the leaves falling, and allow Autumn’s magical winds to change us. We’ll celebrate the fruits of this harvest that has grown us through a very challenging year. We’ll open our eyes to the golden light of the season, 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 Surrender, Roots, and Fruits.
  • Receiving support and guidance from the land. 
  • Utilizing Herbal Allies for empowerment, on all levels.
  • Reconnecting with, and utilizing 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 movement & expressive dance, vocalization, womb self-massage, subtle internal pelvic awareness, and more. As we enter our 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.

LAND-BASED HEALING

Synchronizing with the rhythms of the land and utilizing the gifts of the plants, Moon, Earth, and Sun ~ we reconnect with our own inherent wholeness. This is what Healing actually 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 Herbal Allies, both cultivated and wild, as well as the big sky, trickling waters, and sacred fire. The pulse of the Season when we gather, is central to our exploration, and is in this case ~ Harvest Season. 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 shared 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 to the Sacred Fire. Ritual elements for these gatherings include Plant Brushing, movement, singing, Land-based practices, 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

Danya Underwood Rivlin

“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

Cynthia Stadd

Chief Empowered Eater ~ Eat Empowered

“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 Experience takes 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 as much as possible 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. We will also gather {masked} indoors, in the luxurious Big Barn Temple for dance, ritual, and Embodiment Practice. The Temple is equipped with 3 sets of french doors, and huge barn doors, with an indoor/outdoor feel, and abundant fresh air flow. Replete with velvet and sheepskin rugs and a wood burning stove, you will feel right at home here!

I look forward to welcoming you Home.

XO ~ Marianah Jade
