“Gaia Girls has, truly, felt like a gift from the heavens. In the wise, creative, fierce and loving care of the Gaia Girls aunties, I know that my daughter is seen deeply and honored for who she is, and equally as important, is being taught to see and honor others, and the natural world, in the same ways. I consider Gaia Girls a sacred community, in which my daughter is invited to connect fully with herself and her unique expression, joyfully, in the playful and caring company of other girls.
The effects of this kind of connection, and of being seen, known, held, and honored in these ways, I believe to be profound, and life-impacting; also, a powerful antidote to some of the less caring and honoring experiences girls have in our general culture. I am abundantly grateful to Gaia Girls, for what it’s making possible – both in my daughter’s lived experience, as well as in all of our newly-inspired imaginations of what life can look like, growing up as a girl”.
