Eighth Annual Gaia Gathering for Women
May 2 - 4, 2014
Welcome to our Eighth Annual Gaia Gathering. Gaia is the Greek name for the Primordial Goddess of the earth. Today this word represents the truth that our Planet is our Mother who is alive and pulsing and beating and swaying with the rhythms of the universe.
A tradition at Gaia is to change the theme and focus of our weekend every three years. We are continually cycling from self, to family to community then back again. This year our theme is Honoring Family – birth family as well as that one that we have chosen or has chosen and blessed us. We will celebrate this through our classes as well as our Saturday night Beltane ritual where we will celebrate the truth that the meaning of family moves beyond expected boundaries.
This weekend fills quickly as we are limited to only 100 Women. Fee for the weekend is $295. This includes Friday night to Sunday afternoon classes and activities, rustic lodging or camping and four gourmet, organic meals. We pride ourselves on wild, organic, outrageously wonderful food. From nettle soup, fermented beets, carrots and ginger to damiana brownies….well, just extraordinary. So while most other events will charge the fee and then food and lodging costs, we are truly working towards accessibility through our all-inclusive fee.

While there is no childcare, you are welcome to bring your daughters of any age and your sons under four years old. We ask that you respect all classes and invite them to come with you if they are able to sit quietly. There is plenty of space for them to play yet they must be supervised at all times. We really encourage young girls and teens to be a part of this gathering.
Children under 2 are Free. Children 3 - 16 are $95 for the whole weekend.
Vendors are very welcome and encouraged to join our marketplace.
Please contact Suzanna Stone at email@example.com
Note: No pre-registration needed for specific
classes only the weekend as a whole.
Online registration via Paypal now available!
Where I Come From Chlorophyll is Queen
Where I come from chlorophyll is Queen
She has always been the undisputed champion of the people
One without challenge or vying contender
Spring of Springs
Holder of the living Scepter
We like it that way
She is Monarch
Conqueror, warrior and midwife
Delivering and protecting us
From sickness, pain and evil
Chlorophyllia the 1st since creation conception
The Divine Deity of Interceptors
Empress without dispute or correction
We call her the Green Queen
The Jade Reconciliator –Consigliore
En Domini Veritas Christos
Bringing peace and equity to the nation
As written in the manuscripts of her botanical scriptures
We are her progeny
We are her seeds
She is our milk
Our daily bread
The root of our existence upon which we lay our head
She is the God of Light reflected
In every thing on earth we see
In every living, breathing plant
In all the herbs of nature’s fields
In every tree that bears fruit
In every fingerprinted leaf
To chlorophyll we humbly kneel
And from our hearts
We give our thanks and praises
