We thank all of the forces, family, and friends that have enabled us to celebrate life together in this way…in Hong Kong, no less. Our 4th Garden Gathering happened upon the New Moon on December 7-9 2018 at Sai Yuen Farm. It was an immersive 3-day weekend in natures surrounding with over 80 Wisdomshares on offer. Dedicated women gathered collectively from all over the world to share their modalities of craft & creation, embodiment, earthen ways, plant medicine, sacred sound, sensuality, spirituality, womb wisdom, empowerment, kids culture, and a conscious kitchen. Meet the GARDENERS and WISDOMSHARES from GG4.
WHO WE ARE We are a community of inspirational, compassionate, and supportive women who have united with the common purpose of fostering conscious evolution and leading with gratitude and respect for our mother earth. We honour and call forth different ancestries, lineages, cultures, teachings, and practices, to share, to learn and transform together, and most of all, to connect at a soul level.
WELCOME HOME The Garden Gathering is a place for all, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or body size. We are committed to providing a nourishing and safe environment. Let us be non-judgemental, profoundly kind and open to all the diverse women we meet. With grace and humility, we tend to the Earth, ourselves and each other, to discover our dreams and new ways of living in harmony.
SHARE IN SISTERHOOD We are offering something toward the betterment of our world, as we each carry a voice, a gift and power to discover and share. Sisterhood is harmonious integration regardless of where you may be on your path. We celebrate the feminine. Tending to this garden of vision, we awaken to the felt sense of belonging to that of which nourishes our spirit. May our harvest be shared and planted in communities and beyond.

VICE FREE The Garden Gathering is not without intent as it is an opportunity to retreat into nature and realign to natural ways of living. We disconnect from everyday attachments such as being on our phones and laptops and rest into a journey of self-love. Honouring the process of purifying our relationships with the earth, each other, and ourselves we kindly refrain from the use of alcohol and substances for the duration of the Gathering.
