Why Woman Soul Gathering?


We come from different parts of the world, join as one with our commonalities. We sing, we dance, we pray, we listen, we speak our truth. We heal wounds from generations past, as well as the present. We find our voices and we hold our ground. We support our sisters. We love.

“Because of the Women’s Gathering in 2016, I knew I needed a community of like mind and spirit. So I have made Port Townsend my home after being away for 10 years.”  — Katherine (Kat) Zecca

“For me, it was exactly what I needed…a purging and cleansing…and a call to keep loving myself with all it’s fragile and broken parts. A safe, open Community that I could call Home. I carry that with me even now, and am inspired and strengthened by it! Empowering and Intense…”Julie Kundtz

“To be called upon to be an Elder for this Gathering has been an honor.  It’s a Great Dream manifested into beautiful physical form:  to be in Sacred Circle, sharing and listening, experiencing ceremony with such courageous, heart-full, gifted, questing sisters on the Path to Wholeness and Holiness.” — Starfeather Marcy (Starfeather’s bio is in the Welcome Honored Elders post)

“The Women’s Soul Weekend 2016 came as a complete surprise to me.  What I thought was going to be a fascinating weekend, turned into a life altering weekend.  The depth of connas going to be a fascinating weekend, turned into a life altering weekend.  The depth of connection with nature and my own womanhood was absolutely profound for me.  I’m really committed that my sister and mother attend with me this year as I believe it will bring us a deeper and more intimate level of relationship with each other.  Truly a loving and heart-opening holistic experience that I wish was available every season.” — Debbie Bailey

“The smaller group that went into the water the second morning was a big experience for me, with really feeling connection, not only to the earth, but others too. Even though I didn’t know these women that deeply, it created a deep connection that I will forever have with that small group of women that went into the water with me.” — Sierra Barrett
