The Woman Soul Gathering was initiated by the vision of Barbara “Bobbie” James Snyder, a Washoe Paiute woman who travels throughout the United States to sacred sites where she conducts healing ceremonies to renew the Spirits of the land and keep alive the very nature of the web of life that connects us all. Over the course of several phone conversations, Bobbie inspired several women to say “yes” to bringing forth the Woman Soul Gathering, now in its third year.
The vision of Woman Soul Gathering is to provide an opportunity for a woman to be seen and witnessed by respected elders who listen and encourage her in stepping more fully into the unique gifts she carries that are so needed in the world right now. This circle of honored elders are the foundation for the Woman Soul Gathering. These elders witness and listen to the stories of each woman in large and small groups, and individually over meals or on walks through the 120 acres of forest where we hold the gathering.
In the tradition of respecting and supporting our elders, Woman Soul does not ask for payment from the elders for the costs of this 4-day retreat, and Woman Soul also provides transportation support, including airfare for the elders, and scholarship funds for women who are called to attend and do not have the financial means.
If you would like to make a gift to the scholarship fund for our elders or others, you can do so when you are registering. If you are not able to attend and would like to support our elders and others with a gift to the scholarship fund, you may do so below. Thank you!
