Maiden, Mother, Creatress

Embracing and Healing Our Female Lineage

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

We are all daughters, whether born wanted or unwanted, welcomed or scorned by our mothers. In our cells we have the cells of our mothers, and those of their mothers, along with their burdens of hurts, betrayals, and trauma.

Without awareness, we pass these heavy energies to our daughters and the young women around us, unknowingly setting up the next generation to struggle with low self-worth and high self-abuse.

Join spiritual guide and best-selling author HeatherAsh Amara for a dynamic, playful, ceremonial weekend of deep transformation and the reclamation of our maiden, mother, and creative selves.

We invite you to bring yourself—and your daughter, your mother, your sisters, your friends—for a healing mothers weekend. In this circle of support, you will:

  • Gather with other women and enjoy time together as daughters of mothers, dedicated to healing yourselves and each other
  • Discover your capacity—and your calling—to heal yourself of traumas and embrace the powers passed down from mother to daughter through the ages
  • Reclaim your feminine power, purpose, and pleasure and reconnect to the larger web of women’s matriarchal wisdom
  • Discover how as each of us heals, we help heal the wounds of our ancestors—and we help heal all the daughters, granddaughters, goddaughters, sisters, and friends in our lives.

She is dedicated to inspiring depth, creativity, and joy by sharing the most potent tools from a variety of world traditions.

Sarah Marshank

Sarah Marshank is the founder of Selfistry, a system for mastering the art of being human. Selfistry is “smart spirituality” for these times, offering a map and a method for effective self development.

Integrating Eastern and Western philosophy and psychology with meditative and somatic practices, Selfistry prepares practitioners for a deep encounter with life.

Selfistry was born out of Sarah’s personal 10-year retreat, where she lived a simple ascetic lifestyle, separate from the fast-paced craziness of the western world. While isolated she studied the teachings of numerous lineages and spent her days practicing meditation, yoga, silence, and fasting. You can read her story in her memoir: Being Self-ish, My Journey from Escort to Monk to Grandmother.
