“Women of the Forest is truly a unique experience. Not often in this society do girls get a chance to connect to their feminine power and authenticity in a community of other girls – it was an empowering and wonderful way to spend my teenage years.‚Äč Julie and the other instructors who lead the program over the time I participated created a supportive, honest, and open environment for us to feel comfortable with one another, with ourselves, with the world around us, and with nature. I speak for myself in my praise of this program, but I know that others would say the same – I made lifelong friends and so many good memories over the years and will carry the experience, the knowledge, and the connection to the earth with me wherever I go.”
