women connecting to the fertile ground within
Are you longing for deep personal and spiritual
connection in a chaotic world?
What is Deep Roots?
Deep Roots is a nurturing circle for women like you who desire to deepen their spiritual practice, connect with their inherent feminine wisdom, and nurture their authentic desires, gifts and dreams during this time of profound change on the planet.
As roots reach down into the fertile soil of the earth for water and nutrients, so will you be invited to reach down into the fertile soil of your inner life and tap the resources you may not even realize are there. In a similar way to the roots of trees, plants and mycelial networks of fungi intermingling, this Circle provides a rich space to connect and share with other women on similar journeys of self-discovery, expansion and embodiment of feminine wisdom.
The Deep Roots Circle is focused on supporting you to:
- awaken to your power
- nourish your WHOLE self
- trust your inherent enoughness
- embody your sovereign divinity
In the chaos of our rapidly changing world, we can easily forget (or not even realize) we have roots; that we have the power to consciously strengthen them; and that those roots are enough — they are all the seed of our soul needs to absorb the right nutrients for timely and stunning growth. As we emerge into the light of our soul’s purpose, we have the opportunity to fully own and embrace the outward expression of our divine gifts, knowing those roots keep us steady and secure through all of life’s storms.
We will explore themes of spiritual awakening, empowerment, nourishment, self-care, trust, abundance, compassion, authenticity, and embodiment as perspectives and values providing a framework to guide our learning and enhance the full flowering of our gifts and lives.
Experience the magic of women in circle!
What the world needs now is an infusion of
the kind of wisdom women have
and the form of the circle itself
is an embodiment of that wisdom.
– Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen
Why would I participate?
You know something is calling you to a deeper, richer life.
You have a sense of what nourishes you, yet don’t make time and space for it.
You know there are changes you want to make.
Having a loving circle to inspire and support you will make it easier.
You are quick to doubt yourself and want to shift that pattern.
You desire more peace, connection, playful expression, inner strength.
You probably have many more reasons a mini-retreat with supportive women would serve you right now!
Feed yourself what you are hungering for:
- relaxation and healing
- deep nourishment on all levels
- inspiration, guidance and soul activations
- being seen, heard and accepted just-as-you-are
- connection with women on a similar spiritual journey
- personal insights and breakthroughs
- new relationships
You will strengthen your relationship with yourself through solo activities (i.e., meditation, journaling) and build relationships with others through interaction in pairs, small groups and the whole circle. You will deepen your connection to Mother Earth and draw nourishment from her wisdom and the fertile ground of your own soul.

“The time for the lone wolf is over.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
~ Iriquois elder, shared widely by Chumash Elder Choqosh Au’ho’oh
(often quoted with and attributed to the Hopi Elders’ Prophecy)
What previous participants had to say…
This is an opportunity to gather support and grow… to be in a comfortable space that allows you to be who you are and not worry about saying, doing, feeling the “right ” things — to BE in the space and open up to YOU; to come into communion with yourself. It helped me to become more aware of who I am and what my needs are. ~ Donna B.
Andrea created such an inviting circle of women that felt so immediately accepting because of the way she shared her knowledge and passion from the heart. The sacred space she created had me thinking “this is what’s been missing from my life.” I love the rituals and exercises that we participated in and created together. Each one added to a depth of connection with both myself and the group of women. Looking forward to more! ~ Robyn J.
My experience helped me be more self-aware and enabled me to move forward and be more authentic in my life. Go and relax…it’s great. You’ll be glad you did! ~ Angela T.
