Colorado women and waterways alike are suffering under the stress of systemic and prolonged damming, diversion, pollution and misuse, resulting in internal and external environments that are too hot and too dry.
Women of the Water seeks to provide relief from these sources of suffering while building resilience within women, communities and watersheds to prevent and mitigate future harm.
Women of the Water offers creative, holistic, intuitive and nature-based programs and services by and for Colorado women to help us restore our relationship with water so we can feel relief and connection with the primary flow of Life.
We accomplish this by remembering the ways and wisdom of water and well- tending our relationships with death, dying, grief and loss.
Together we become embodied well women - wild, willing, and whole sources and stewards of water, circling shoulder to shoulder and eye to eye in generous service to generations past, present and future.
Lisa Cheney-Philp is the founder of Women of the Water. She belongs to the world as one who rewrites history, one who dwells in river canyons, one who vows to the Women of the Water to listen, practice, and serve and one who dreams of the river meeting the sea.
Lisa is guided by an insatiable curiosity and, as such, is trained to support others as a death doula, river guide, coach, and creative facilitator among other things.
Lisa has been embedded in Colorado communities and watersheds for over 20 years. She currently calls Fort Collins and the Poudre River watershed home with her husband, Joel, and daughter, Juniper.
