Gail on Lindsay: "We met when Lindsay came for a solo retreat in August of last year, which began a like-minded connection and friendship. The healing work we did was pivotal to my healing process, life changing even! I love our relationship and what it has provided to others in my practice. I am taking the Art of Facilitation online course. It's the finest explanation and treatment of trauma that I've encountered. Look forward to the upcoming workshop here on October 14."

Wanda Waddell

Wanda Waddell lives on a historic property she is renovating in the Ohio River Valley, near Cincinnati. She found herself, after 16 years of marriage, navigating a new life as a single mom. For seven years she has focused on personal growth and fulfillment, rediscovering herself by studying and learning the way of the Crone. She has made it her life’s mission to share her journey and to thereby empower other women.

Experiencing Wanda: "Wanda is a tremendously inspired and capable person who shares her stores of creative loving energy with those around her. She writes and sings beautifully, loves to photograph women in nature, has vast knowledge of plants and animals, designs and builds healing  gardens, and has a huge appetite for beauty and rightness.  Her essence is contagious. Being with her is profoundly enlivening. She articulates her visions with great clarity. What she brings to Galleywinter is pure gold - wrought from within of her own deep awareness and healing work." - Gail
