An Online Workshop to Support You in Planting and Nourishing the Seed of Sovereignty.
She is the Tree is a 6-week online workshop created to help you plant and nourish the seed of your own personal sovereignty.
In the first 2 weeks we will use the stories of Mary Magdalene and The Tree of Life to explore the anatomy and power of divine feminine sovereignty.
During weeks 3-6, we will support the integration of your personal sovereignty through intuitive movement, guided imagery, and community discussion focused on how to show up with greater sovereignty in your relationships.
Through these experiences we hope each of you will bring more of your divine sovereign identity and its gifts into your life and out into our ailing world.

Why are we doing this?
Whether it was a long slow journey, or a momentous experience in time, we at WOMB, along with Amber Richardson, have all born a great shift within our souls.
Our mind, body, and spirit have been rent in pieces as we unearthed our own trauma, sorrow, confusion, and anger. But from these pieces a seed of self-governing power and authority sprouted.
As we nurtured this seed, we could hear our inner voice for the first time. We grew in our understanding of the divine feminine and we began to regraft our mind, body, and spirit together again.
We found the tools to navigate faith crises, to restore relationships, to set boundaries, to fight for social justice, to heal from trauma, and to find true joy. Through this journey we have rooted ourselves in sovereignty and realized our dreams.
The She is the Tree workshop is your opportunity to realize this dream. We are doing this workshop because we know what it is like to stand at the precipice of intense change.
We have been to the darkness and back many times and we can offer you safety, guidance & solace as you begin your own journey. This retreat will be a safe space for you to explore the cognitive dissonance, the heartache, and desire for change you have been feeling.
We are doing this to help you develop the skills to nurture and nourish your own seed into a tree that will bear unique and delicious fruit.
Through the archetypes of Mary Magdalene and sacred trees, joyful movement, guided meditation, and community discussion, She is the Tree will help women reclaim their power, nourish and strengthen their sense of identity, use their voice to bring about good in the world, and find joy in the work they feel called to do.
