Founder of Gaia Sisterhood
Gaia Sisterhood was founded in 2016 by Jennifer Harvard, a Nashville, TN native. Founder of the Wise Women Full Moon Retreats, Gaia Circles and the Goddess Craft Markets, she has cast a wide net of openness and inclusivity, welcoming as many women as possible into her Divine Feminine work.
"My background in Natural Health and Holistic Healing spans over 30 years. I was inspired by my mother who was a Reflexologist while growing up, which spurred me to seek alternative approaches to healing, work in a health food store during the 1990's and become a licensed massage therapist and energy healer.
After Recovering from Alcoholism I looked for a community and a spiritual practice that met my needs. Along my journey I became a Tibetan Buddhist Practitioner, studied some Yogic Philosophy, and dabbled in Other Nature Based Religions but found my true spiritual path and home in Nature Based Spirituality or Shamanism. From these traditions I have learned that if one of us is not liberated, none of us are truly free.
Much of my work today involves using Ritual and Ceremony to create Safe space for women to gather in community and honor each turn in the Celtic Wheel Of the Year. "
One of Jennifer’s greatest passion is creating. She is a Jewelry Designer, Macramé Artist, Aromatherapist, dried flower enthusiast, and more. With that she has brought the Goddess Craft Market to Nashville featuring her designs as well as those of many woman artisans in the community.
