What parents are saying about Gaia Girls Passages

“Sophie has found her tribe!  She loves connecting with the earth, learning about nature, and meeting other women and girls.  It has been an experience that I never could have given her on my own.”

~Jenny Beck, mother of Sophie

“I see my daughters are using, seeing, and connecting to nature in a more profound way.  It has helped them with their confidence at school & with their peers.  I really like how they are learning the power of sisterhood.”

~Deirdre Murphy, mother of twins Aoife & Socha Shen

“Gaia Girls was incredibly positive for Aili, me and our whole family.  Our family has applied the tools we learned about nonviolent communication and that has been very helpful and healthy.”

~Emilia Sumelius-Buescher, mother of Aili Buescher

“After a really hard day recently for our country, my daughter repeated over and over again, how perfect it was to be at Gaia Girls on that day.  She said that it was exactly what she needed to be able to cope, to be outside in the woods with a bunch of girls talking about our feelings around a fire. She has been quietly singing the gentle heart song that she learned at Gaia Girls over and over, and I keep coming in on her singing that to herself as this calming, empowering mantra.”

~Gwen Loeb, mother of a Gaia Girl

“One of the things that my daughter has struggled with has been stepping out and sharing her voice.  After a year of being in a Gaia Girls group I can see that Kayla’s confidence is growing.  I was so proud of her when she recently made a petition at school and spoke up in front of the entire 4th and 5th grade classes.  I really believe that these seeds that are being planted in her and the support she is receiving through Gaia Girls has helped her to find her voice.”

~Lori Hess, mother of Kayla

“Gaia Girls is so central for my daughter.  It is a place where courage and power are supported in a really fun and playful way.  I feel that her spirit really gets fed.  When she comes home her eyes are shining bright and she feels happy.  It has also been really special for her to have older girls who she is close with to be positive role models for her.”

~Alyssa, mother of Kiara

“Gaia Girls has provided a space for both my daughter and I to experience community.  As newcomers to the area, we cherish the opportunity to find friends who share similar ways of thinking.  I love the ways in which Gaia Girls conveys its values to the girls, and I especially love when the mamas get to play a role in it.”

~Camila Loew, mother of Olivia

“Gaia Girls has been such an incredible experience for both my daughter and myself.  I have seen my daughter come into a whole new side of herself since starting, a side that was much more dormant before.  Gaia Girls has opened her up to a new community of like minded girls, and she is being guided towards deepening her earth connection, honesty and authenticity, and doing creative projects that actually draw out her unique gifts, kindness, and courageous individuation.  These are virtues that I am not seeing nurtured and encouraged very much anywhere else.  At this tender age, when so much is about to change, for her and also for me, I do not know what I would do without the support of Gaia Girls.”

~Melita Silberstein, mother of Leilah

“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.  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 honoring experiences girls have in our general culture.  I am 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 girl.”

~Tanya Pearlman, mother of Ayla

“At her core is a sense of security, self connectedness, love, groundedness and earth connection, that Gaia Girls has been instrumental in helping her develop.  She’s so ready for her independence.  And at this point it is a given that we, as mother and daughter, are intimately woven into this Gaia Girls community.  It’s really cool.  And it has been great for me as well – because Megan has guided me into an amazing community of women (the other mothers) who I feel so inspired by!”

~Laura Amen-Kroeger, mother of Megan

“Our experience at camp was profound and utterly magical. In a culture that can be stressful and disconnected, where raising children and staying connected with your family can be forgotten in the midst of survival and materialism, I have prayed to be part of a village of loving, caring and conscious individuals who understand the importance of honoring the earth and each other as well as the sacred magic that we are. This camp and Gaia Girls Passages has strengthened my bond with my daughter by plugging her into the energy of her source and the knowledge of who she is, as a girl emerging into a woman and as a human being.”

~Amy, mother of Skye Manley

“If I’m into something, she’s more likely to resist, but if it comes from Gaia Girls and it’s cool, then she’s into it.  In that way Gaia Girls is giving her a connection to the earth that would have been hard for me to give her as her mother.  I really want this for her and I can see that through meeting the plants and relating to the natural world she is gaining a sense of freedom and security in the world.”

~Laura Atkins, mother of Cassy

“After a year and a half of Gaia Girls, my daughter now wants to roam free when we arrive in a forest.  She used to be scared and stay close to us, her parents.  Recently, when we found her on a redwood path, she welcomed us to be silent and follow her.  She led us to a fairy house she had built, complete with a food offering to the spirit of the woods.  This is the only antidote to the direction the world is heading, with media grabbing hold of our children.”
