The 8th Annual
Red Earth: The Mountain West Women’s Herbal Gathering
August 2nd - 4th, 2024
13 Moons Ranch in Carbondale, CO
Camping and meals are included!
Red Earth is a sacred ceremonial container created by and for women to honor and activate our inherent life-nurturing power. We gather together to learn from and inspire each other through ceremony, workshops, deep healing and community building. By recognizing the beauty and power of what it is to be women doing our sacred work, our life’s calling, we step into our collective potential to support the great turning of our planet at this time.
*Red Earth Herbal Gathering welcomes boys from newborn through the end of their 7th year.
2024 Red Earth Intention
This year is incredibly special as we deepen into connection with the land of 13 Moons Ranch and with our amazing chef Jenna and her team of kitchen witches. The trinity of the three of these potent energies converging is laying a beautiful matrix of healing and grounding and love. We are excited to welcome the women and children of the mountain west to Red Earth 2024!
As we deepen together this year, we hold the intention of community. We lean on last year's intention of connection as we begin to more deeply understand that it is our sacred connection that builds our magical community. Year after year we return together with intention and ceremony, to learn and grow and transform. What a gift!
With this intention it seems so fitting to call in Aspen (Populus tremuloides) as our plant ally. Aspen is Colorado's most widespread deciduous tree. One of my favorite aspects of Aspen is her ability to regenerate by sending shoots up from her roots. Often when we walk in an aspen forest, we are walking amongst many trees sprouting from the same root system. I think this is a beautiful metaphor for the women of red earth. It is our root system, our community connection and strength, that will keep us strong and able to continue forging our individual and collective path forward.
Let us see what wisdom Community and Aspen will bring for us this year.

Red Earth 2023 was a dream come true! Thank you to each and every woman and child who circled together on this sacred land in prayer and celebration!!!
Red earth is a magical place that brings women together in community and revives rituals that are much lacking in todays society. Being in community with women and feeling supported to open up to others. Also you get to open your mind to new knowledge and new ideas. This retreat is a release, reset, revive for your own soul. Highly recommend!!
