Sacred Groves

Sacred Groves is a ten acre forest sanctuary on Bainbridge Island, WA, a little eco-retreat where you can reconnect body, heart and mind as you deepen your relationship with Mother Earth and Great Spirit.

Sacred Groves is owned and co-directed by Thérèse Charvet, a former midwife and midwifery school director, and Tere Carranza, carpenter, cook and all-round “Big-Hearted Being.”  They welcome guests to the land for overnight stays, personal retreats, ceremonies and events that open hearts in the healing green of the woods. Lodging and most events are open to men and women. Women’s Mysteries School events are for women only.

The Womens Mysteries School includes our monthly Red Tent and Earth Mothers Circle, a “Welcome to Womanhood Ceremony” for women of all ages, an apprenticeship path for women who facilitate (or hope to facilitate) womens groups, and Holistic Pelvic Care appointments offered by Thérèse. Read more at
