A  Women’s Pilgrimage 

GLASTONBURY, SOMERSET, ENGLAND | JULY 9TH – 14TH, 2021

Receive ~

Glastonbury/ Avalon is a place where time folds away, a container for the profundity of our intimacy with Mystery to –

Unfurl.

Here we receive clear guidance and instruction for the most tender, unresolved mysteries of the heart.

Blessed by ancient frequencies of Light reaching forward and dancing us into the magnificence of our true destiny – this sacred land catalyzes, progresses, and catapults us into The Now. 

But this is The Now that includes both who we once were, and who we are most longing to –

Become. 

Our individual purpose is whispered on the wind by the ancient Priestesses who have gone before us. 

They are still here, as the keepers of this sacred land. 

You will hear them, as you remember how to listen.

Welcome Home ~

R E M E M B E R I N G  A V A L O N –  A sacred Invitation for women who long to experience profound spiritual support and satiation.

Glastonbury/ Avalon kisses off the dust of our harsh, uprooted modern society, tenderly unfolding the petals of your being.

Bringing you into a state of profound relaxation in body, heart, and soul, this place is one luscious discovery after another – an embodied invitation for you to rest completely, into the lap of the Mother.

With our shared intention to Re-Member our world into wholeness, and to clearly see our individual roles in this endeavor – together we will pilgrimage to the sacred sites of Glastonbury, Somerset, England.

Excavating our deeper knowing from the recesses of Feminine Cellular Memory, we will be changed forever.   

Hip to hip, in the basket of this unconditionally loving Women’s Community – we’ll laugh, cry, feast, dance, play, and pray – turning our grief for this emptying world into the gold that we spin together.

Join us for this unforgettable journey of a lifetime – in Glastonbury/ Avalon where you will know immediately… maybe you already know… that this is a place of your Soul’s Belonging.

I am so very honored, delighted, and excited to welcome you Home. 

Her Living Altar ~ 

Just a few hours drive from London, Glastonbury is worlds apart. 

As the Mystical home of A V A L O N, they exist as one – Glastonbury/ Avalon – each hanging on opposite sides of the veil.  

No special experience or spiritual merit is necessary to receive the benefit of this holy place. 

She is here to receive all. 

I warmly welcome you, Sister., to join us for this deep dive, this softening, this sweet opening – as we fall together, ever so gently, like blossoms on the breeze, into inner Peace. 

Here, we’re surrounded by a unique kind of quiet, in this Sanctuary where angels converse and the devotion of Mary Magdalene fills the streets. 

This land is so welcoming, so feminine, so yumwoven with real magic, ancient myths, sacred ruins, and Healing Wells.

While the sun-kissed English gardens bloom in their glory, overflowing with herbal allies, the hills roll with beautiful, wild, medicinal plants.

These are the plants that our foremothers used to uplift, align, fortify, heal, and cure themselves and their people.

We will Ally with them once again.

In this place of palpable Her-story, we experience profound existential relief. Here we can finally stop digging for and ‘translating’, in our search for the teachings of the Goddess.

The search is over. 

Her teachings are tattooed on the body of the land, right here in plain sight – at every sacred place we’ll visit together.

This is a living altar to The Great Feminine. Alive and well, pulsing as –

 

Heaven on Earth ~

Glastonbury, Somerset, England… 

A V A L O N.

She Who Re-Members ~

Here, in the Mystical seat of A V A L O N, we reunite with with the cellular memory we carry, of a time when we were Priestesses together.

A Priestess is She Who Re-Members. 

She puts back together that which has been divided. 

She bridges the seen and the unseen, the ancient past and our shared better future. 

She reweaves the frayed threads of our world, back into its own wholeness. 

This act of remembering is very personal, original, and unique to each one of us. 

To approach the journey of Womanhood itself, consciously, as a holy endeavor – is to be a Priestess… to re-member what we already know.

Joining together in this way – for an unforgettable Women’s Rite of Passage – we excavate this knowing.

And our time together reshapes and strengthens it, to be most useful in these times of change – for the good of all.

A Women’s Pilgrimage 

 

.:. AN INTIMATE CIRCLE OF 13 WOMEN, JOURNEYING TOGETHER FOR 6 DAYS, FROM THE INSIDE-OUT.  .:.

In addition to and during our visits to the Sacred Sites of Avalon, we’ll explore –

 

Embodiment Practice

.:. R E W E A V E  .:.

Through Embodiment Practice, we experience our bodies & emotions – as doorways into something greater. Dropping-in below the mind, beyond the intellect, a vast reservoir is discovered – containing abundant inner resources. Together we tap this source of our feminine superpowers, experiencing ourselves just as we are. In Practice, we are untied from the harsh habits of the inner patriarch, revealing a more authentic, radiant, and fully expressed state of being. The teachings of Emotional Alchemy are central to our Embodiment Practice, empowering us to harness the elemental potency of our feelings – as they live and move inside the body. Learning to utilize emotions as an effective healing tool, we reweave ourselves back into the fabric of truth. Through this primal and foundational women’s work, we harmonize with the raw, alive physical & emotional forces. And we become The Medicine of The Real, which our whole world needs. 

Women’s Circle

.:. R E T U R N .:. 

At the center of this extraordinary journey, is the loving heartbeat of our Women’s Circle. Together, through the timeless women’s ways of honest inquiry, Council, nurturing touch, and much more, we welcome all parts of ourselves home – to be felt, seen, and known. In this skillful container of growth, rest, and soul-inspiration, we experience a profound sense of belonging – with ourselves, the earth, and each other. The vulnerability, intimacy, and depth of the Women’s Circle challenges us to bring forth more of our presence, truth, and genuine experience, into the whole. This befriending and integration Returns us to the Beauty that we are. And through the process, we learn to see ourselves and each other with new eyes. These are the empowering, all-seeing eyes of the Matriarchy that we create together. This unified, compassionate consciousness ripples out into our world, shaping us as part of The Solution humanity is waiting for.

Earth-Based Ritual

.:. R E M E M B E R .:.

Earth-Based Women’s Ritual is a group attunement to the innate wakefulness of the land, ourselves, and the relationship between the two. Utilizing the natural elements, and seasonal + lunar energies, we enter an altered state of deeper presence, in which our interconnection is apparent. From here, we gather the gifts of the Earth’s support, our personal knowing, the ancestral voices of the land, and more. Becoming intimate with the local wild plants, the moon, the sacred sites, the cycles, and the sun – we embody the Re-Membering {putting back together of things} that is our shared intention for this journey. In doing so, we restore our phenomenal connection with the planet, as the keepers of her cycles and wisdom. Synchronizing with this auspicious time of change when we gather – The Autumnal Equinox and the global reorganization – together we harvest The Cure that is always here, under our feet, so that we can share it with our people and our world.

Meet Your Guide ~

My name is Marianah Jade Patrice Montesano Bacal, AKA Marianah Jade. I’m a modern-day Priestess, old fashioned hearth-keeper & homesteader, spoken-word poet, mother of a teen daughter, wife, land-listener, Celtic Folk Harpist, Herbal enthusiast, Co-Founder at Eagle Prairie Land Sanctuary {in Colorado, USA}, and Founder of The Women’s Grove.

I’ve devoted the greater part of the last 20 years of my life to the practice, teachings, and most importantly – embodiment of The Great Feminine. Leading thousands of women all over the world through Rituals, Circles, and Retreats {both in person and online} for the last 15 years, I’ve discovered one common purpose.

In these isolating times, we’re all hungry for home. We long to Re-member ourselves back into something whole. The intention for this Women’s Pilgrimage is just that.

Here, we’ll find the real connection we crave and need – with ourselves, each other, and the all-powerful presence that shapes our lives. We’ll cultivate a true sense of belonging with our bodies and our own souls, the like-minded women of the Circle, and the very real magic of the Earth in this sacred place – which is something much greater than us all.

During my own recent Pilgrimage to Glastonbury/ Avalon, without any effort at all, a very simple and pure mystical experience unfolded. 

A healing that I’ve longed for without even knowing it, instantaneously resolved itself. 

A tension that I’ve held for lifetimes, Just. Let. Go. 

I was held, so sweetly, in the lap of my Mother, the Earth. 

She enveloped her loving arms around me, and the pain of living in this patriarchal world, just drained right out of me. 

Oozing from every pore of my being, it was licked up by the garden. 

And I knew as I laid in her lap, that I was finally Home.

I want to take you home too. I want you to know your own magnificent existence, outside of linear time and space, in a place where the Great Mother is alive and well.

She is here, ready to welcome you too, into her loving lap. To witness you fall into Her Beauty will be one of the greatest pleasures of my life.

Thank you for this opportunity to be your Guide.

I’m bursting at the seams, in anticipation of sharing this Unforgettable Journey of a Lifetime with you! With love,

Praise For These Ways~

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… 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
