Woman Soul Gathering is an annual gathering of women connecting with their soul’s purpose through ceremony and elder teachings. It is an opportunity to connect and share deeply in a community of women committed to a just and peaceful world and to living their full life purpose. Days are filled with ceremony, ritual, drumming, dance and elder teachings in the lush forest of the Pacific Northwest.

We have traveled unique paths to arrive at this moment to remember who we are. You are invited to join our circle of community to show your true self, your soul, your spirit, and come to understand the value of your light in the world. You may say you are not ready, that maybe someday you will face your doubts and fears, your pain and sorrow. Truth is, there never is a “completely ready.” There never is a right time. If that were not true, we would not have created the words heroine, hero, or courage. Now is the time. The collective WE need You. Our Mother Earth is asking for your voice, your story, your creativity. One of the most peaceful but powerful forces in these times is to stand firm in a community of peace and love.

Angeles Arrien tells the story of the Ancestors on the other side looking upon their grandchildren and saying, Oh, maybe this one will be the one who will bring forward the good, true and beautiful from all the past generations and the generations to come. Maybe this one will be the one that will bring the end to all the harmful family patterns, maybe this one will be the one.
