Matriarch Rising in 2023: The Recap

"It was a magical experience. Gathering with so many women, hugging them, loving them, and genuinely listening to them, feeling heard and seen, held and supported, sitting in a circle, laughing and dancing and having our children witnessing the matriarchs rising."

"This women-only gathering offers safety and liberation. An invitation to surrender, learn, connect and remember how powerful and healing it can be to just be yourself, in the company of a strong community of women."

What started as a dream, became an event where hundreds of women gather on sacred land in the Blue Ridge Mountains each year to revive authentic sisterhood.

The Matriarch Rising Festival is an exclusive women-only event that cultivates a sanctuary for mothers, daughters, and sisters to celebrate womanhood year after year.

Our mission is to preserve the practice of sharing woman-to-woman wisdom and inspire one another to claim ownership over ourselves as sovereign and spiritual beings. Our core design of community is woven throughout the entire festival. MRF is a coming home to ourselves, a safe and playful arena for the wild-hearted woman to let her guard down, find deep kinship, and return to her daily life renewed. 

Workshops

Here you'll find a one-of-a-kind, women-only immersive experience spanning topics from energetic pelvic health to playful twerking, self mastery tools to herb walks, homeopathy to breast health, yoga to village prenatals, broom-making to kava ceremonies, and so much more.

"Leaving from my week at Matriarch Rising Festival was like waking up from a past life. A past life where women come together to dance, move, heal, birth, and mother. A past life where we learn from and sing with our sacred elders, share precious skills like crafting and postpartum care, and receive nourishment in every way. The best part? It wasn’t a dream! This space was real, the experiences were life changing, the friendships made were authentic, the memories were precious moments we’ll carry with us. MRF was a remembering, a remembering of the community we can have and the world we can build today, together. 

I left feeling so inspired and fulfilled. This experience is like nothing else and I will keep it close to my heart and cherish it."

–Josephine Hayes

"I've been to many women's gatherings and circles, but never one that was so focused on pregnancy, birth, motherhood, community, and sovereignty. 
It was so beautiful to see so many pregnant bellies, breastfeeding mamas and wild children running around so freely, to see everyone dancing their booties off with babies latched onto the boob.
Receiving nourishment and wisdom all day long, women supporting women, so much beautiful art and song. 
This gathering was a remembering of what's possible."

–@guidedbylove

"This last week at the festival  was pure magic and my heart is still doing a happy dance after being blown open by the amazingness that I experienced: daily morning song circles, liberating topless yoga and rain dancing, sound healing, reiki, wild woman ecstatic dance, naked babies and pregnant ladies, walking barefoot, foraging for plant medicine, a releasing and powerful grief circle, soul voice singing and other incredible womens circles.

I felt immensely supported, held, seen, heard, connected, loved and authentically me. This is how we heal. Love, self-expression and holistic connection. Connection to ourselves, connection to others, connection to nature.
