About QueenEarth & Friends: Portland!
A Women’s Retreat
This is an intentionally women’s centered event and a safe space/retreat for female empowerment.
QueenEarth & Friends, a networking creative events movement, has joined forces with We’ Moon Land, (reinventing itself, open to We’moon of all ages visiting and helping steward womyn’s land practicing earth-based spirituality, consensus, natural healing, organic gardening, permaculture, eco-foresty, earth-friendly building ) in Estacada, OR! Pack your bags for a weekend of women, camping, and creativity. Enjoy activities, workshops, and sisterhood on the We Moon Land of Oregon. Featuring a special QueerCore performance and open mic hosted by QueenEarth. www.queenearth.com/queercore #qefriendspdx
Traditionally homogenous communities, there is a larger movement to redefine and reinvent the perceptions of Women’s Lands. For Showpony, reinventing meant bringing more ethnic cultural diversity. For QueenEarth it meant bringing creativity to new intentional communities. Femininity comes in many colors, sizes, sexualities, ages, and representations. Let us come together and build a community closest to the Earth in the beautiful forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. All women are welcome here. We will kick off the weekend with a fireside chat about celebrating diversity and unification, inclusivity and exclusivity, solitude and community. Our hope is that you will leave feeling closer to yourself, closer to a new sisterhood of women, closer to the Earth.
We are asking ask women to share their time to help out with initiatives on the land. What does that mean? We will be offering over 15 hours of workshops and community activities from yoga, songwriting, to reiki, and more! The open mic will also involve a community art project! We want you to spend your time enjoying yourselves, in whatever way that means for you. Some of the better parts of the weekend will be the conversations with your sisters, community yoga in the beautiful green spaces, gardening for the evening meal, building a new structure for the land, cooking with the nutrition team, collecting wood for the bonfires, etc. As time approaches, women will be provided with a list of activities. Your time is not mandatory, but it is encouraged. Women are also encouraged to find solitude on the hiking trails and woodlands.

About We’ Moon
We’Moon Land is a picturesque 55 acres outside Estacada, OR, where only womyn have lived since 1973. The houses, cabins, workshops, sauna, and yurt that dot the partially forested landscape were built by the womyn residents, and it was this community that started the now famous, and incredibly beautiful, We’Moon Astrological calendars as a successful cottage industry.
