We train women and the gender minority to lead Mentoring Circles ... so that girls and non-binary kids may thrive on their journey to adulthood.

Although our focus here is helping adults raise and mentor girls and non-binary kids to be attuned, confident, grounded, radiant, JOYW's work often expands beyond that. We are rising together in mutual support across all ages, all genders/orientations/identities, races, and abilities. We believe that it's everyone's highest purpose to become more free and conscious and whole ... and that each individual's good-hearted efforts nourish the collective.  

Our Journey by Gaia Orion

Our Journey by Gaia Orion Art

I offer to you the sum total of everything I’ve learned as an engineer, world traveler, Waldorf-inspired educator, circle facilitator, Zen "Sunday School" Director, leader of Girls’ Circles and Coming of Age Circles and Rites of Passage, and mother.

The learning journey of the JOYW community  - together with a stunning array of elders, youth, pioneers, sages, explorers, activists and truth-speakers -continues ever on.  Sometimes surging, sometimes struggling, always exploring and connecting, we are determined to release limiting stories and beliefs and to co-create and embrace an inclusive, life-serving, earth-honoring ethos and way of life that celebrates the feminine in all its beauty-full forms as well as the healthy masculine.

It's an honor to meet online with so many amazing people from all over the world, learning and growing collaboratively. Thank you!

Rising as one!
