“In this Tribe, I discovered that I’m not alone as a woman and that my internal guidance systems are not unique to me but are shared by all women. I found that the inner voice speaking truth to me all along, is heard by all of my sisters in one form or another. I found myself willing to submit more fully to this knowing, in a circle of women who yearn for connection to one another. I found healing for the wounds created in my sisterhood of origin, compassion for other women’s ‘lost-ness’ in a world dominated by the masculine, and openness to welcome new sisters into my inner spaces. I found a woman whispering our secrets back to me, reminding me of what we know. Gently, sensually, sacredly inviting me into my body, into my femininity, my creative center. I found a guide, Patrice Mariana, who has devoted herself to understanding the subtle rhythms of the feminine that float under everything that is, often without our notice. She helped me see that in those subtle waves exist a vast, thronging passion of love and devotion and acceptance. Patiently, oh so delicately, she reintroduced me to my magical core, calling out my true nature and showing me places where I can tap into my subtle powers, my cycles, and the wisdom of our foremothers. My wish would be for all the women I love to experience this Tribe of womanly power and love that Patrice Mariana nurtures. Here we find a home for the weirdness of our womanhood, and give time and space for our powers to heal, process, transform, express, create, and develop ~ so that we all experience the divine feminine within us and allow it to change the world. I feel a deep trust in the women of this Tribe, and clarity that they hold the space for me to become the woman I want to be. I am surrounded by the beauty of the feminine light and I am home.” – Martha

“I found Patrice Mariana’s groups to be the one space where I could let my shoulders fall, my guard drop, and my true emotions surface. I felt that I could say and feel anything, and it wouldn’t be deemed “wrong” or inappropriate. I loved connecting with the other women, hearing the similarities, the differences, having a laugh, being acknowledged, and knowing that I am not alone. It is wonderful to find a space where authenticity is appreciated and tears are seen as a sign of strength. I am grateful to have crossed paths with such a wise, compassionate, and deeply spiritual teacher at this time in my life.” – Katie

Melissa Geiger
Wellness Coach, Founder ~ Nourishing Our Radiance

“I honestly felt so deeply moved by my session with Patrice Mariana, that I don’t quite know how to put it into words. She brought me right up to my soul’s growing edge in a way that only traditional indigenous ceremonies have done for me in the past. Her very presence is like medicine and it is an absolute honor to work with her. I had forgotten how deeply transformational a single hour can be. Patrice is a truly wise and skillful guide. She creates such a beautiful, sacred space. I felt deeply supported and honored as I faced a major life transition. She illuminated some of my blind spots, which helped me to navigate this transition with more clarity, ease, and strength. She also offered suggestions of feminine embodiment practices that have brought so much beauty and poignancy to this time in my life. I can’t recommend her work highly enough. Right after our session, I opened to and experienced a potent synchronicity and twist of fate that lead me to manifest my new dream home! I’m feeling blessed and grateful and I am really looking forward to more sessions in the future!” – Melissa

Lesley Glenner
Owner, Founder ~ HoloBeing Holistic Wellness Institute

“Patrice Mariana, creates a living, breathing priestess-like experience every step of the way. She offered me a reflection of myself that was beautiful, whole, and goddess-like. Patrice, assumes the best and honors those in her presence in ways subtle and grandiose ~ creating a container of sacred intimacy, feminine attunement, skillful transformation, and fun. As a bride to-be, I can think of no better way to step into an embodied feminine experience of myself. The practices Patrice Mariana offered have continued to serve me in my life and relationships. I have been more aware of my power as a woman, I have been more available to my partner when I honor my needs for feminine practice, and I have helped other women in transition to remember their feminine obligations to their truth. I would not hesitate to recommend this to ANY woman who wants to feel good in her world.” – Lesley

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the Women’s Lodge, and it was exactly what I needed…infusing me with grounded-ness and joy. Patrice Mariana opened my eyes to the power of the moon, which is something I’ve rarely even considered before…and oh the power of the moon! With her loving guidance, I felt it’s open reign like never before and connected into an altered state of receptivity, truth, and raw power. Patrice Mariana is a true master at what she does. India is earth mother, female connector, woman empower-er, spirit guider, and Leader. This is an experience I want again. Thank you for leading such a necessary event!!!” – Cynthia eatempowered.com

“I had the honor of working & healing with Patrice Mariana for 4 months privately. I highly recommend her to any women that wants to do really deep, transformational heart + soul work. …Deep…deep! Patrice Mariana is an amazing, wise, and present intuitive. Her medicine is magic. She’s able to shed light on and see things that you can’t. I have so much LOVE for Patrice and her work. She is pure love medicine. Our work was amazing and it changed my life. A ‘thank you’ seems so small compared to what I feel inside my heart for what India offered me…a new beginning. I feel healthy and whole and present. My MoonTimes have all been regular…this has not been so for a long time. And I loved the recordings she made for me. They were brilliant! Patrice Mariana soothes and nurtures and guides. Working with her is pure bliss. I’m in tears.” – Willow

Beth Burcham
Psychotherapist, Retreat Leader

“This was a very powerful and meaningful experience for me. I felt great transformation during and after this sacred gathering of women. It was so beautiful to have a group of women come together and hold a space for each one to do deep, healing work. Patrice Mariana is a true sacred space holder. She was strong, present, and also vulnerable with her own truth. She inspired me to dig deep in my heart and speak the truth that lived there. We moved through music, prayer, story, song, ritual, healing touch, and sisterhood. My tears were shed in a safe space, my voice heard, my story witnessed… I encourage all women with any longing for authenticity, connection, and healing to partake in what Patrice offers. The power of a circle lead by her, is a true gift to every woman’s soul! – Beth

Tracey Holderman
Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor

“The power of the feminine cannot be underestimated, nor can the power of Patrice Mariana’s ability to coax latent moxy out of the critical centers of the female experience. She possesses a knowing that goes way back to the root of the great mother, intelligence that makes more room for spirit to live in my body, and a seemingly eternal gentleness. She is a hybrid of the rarest kind ~ a true jewel in the healing community of Boulder.” – Tracey

Psychotherapist, Mama-Blogger

“As the evening unfolded, Patrice Mariana skillfully guided us through a ritual that felt very tailored to my needs, while also honoring this life transition in a deeply collective way. I was supported in being completely true to myself, grounded, and present, and reminded of how I am also a part of something much larger than myself. My own spiritual beliefs were honored, and I felt supported in being open and receptive. The evening felt like a perfect blend of intimate connection, playful laughter, and emotional support. I left feeling my fears and hesitations were transformed into power and strength. It was exactly what I needed to be present, radiant, and open for making the commitment of marriage.” – Ellen
