About Vicki Noble:
Vicki Noble, cocreator of Motherpeace, is a radical feminist healer, author, independent scholar and wisdom teacher. Born in 1947 and raised in Iowa, she awakened to the Goddess and Women's Spirituality on her arrival in Berkeley, CA in 1976. Through a shamanic healing crisis, she opened psychically to the healing, art, yoga and divination processes that led to the creation of the Motherpeace tarot images. Since then she has written numerous books, including Motherpeace (1983), Shakti Woman (1991), Ritual and Practice with the Motherpeace Tarot (1998/2003), and the Double Goddess(2003). With Miriam Dexter, she recently co-edited an anthology, Foremothers of the Women's Spirituality Movement: Elders and Visionaries (2015).

Vicki has developed a powerful public ritual healing process, in which participants perform hands-on healing in the context of drumming and chanting. She teaches and lectures internationally, and has led tours of women on pilgrimage to sacred Goddess sites around the world. She taught for two decades in Women's Spirituality Masters Programs at CIIS and New College in San Francisco, and finally at ITP/Sophia University in Palo Alto,CA. Since 2006, much of her time has been spent teaching regularly in Italy, where most of her books have been published in Italian and she has developed a following of women who study and practice her adapted Tibetan Buddist Dakini practices.

About Dos Rios Artist Retreat and Performance Center

Dos Rios Slide Show

Dance Brigade has launched a summer retreat, workshop, and performance center. Located between the towns of Covelo and Laytonville in Mendocino County, our ranch in Dos Rios is nestled in the enchanted hills of Northern California. The Eel River weaves through the property, which is filled with old oak trees and lush gardens. This space offers a peaceful place to relax, while simultaneously providing a fertile ground to create, study, and lay the foundation for future projects. Nature inspires!

The land includes: an open air barn for dancing and drumming, a house for cooking and bathing, a yurt for yoga, access to the river, indoor sleeping areas and plenty of camping ground.

For the past ten years, the retreat center has hosted the Grrrl Brigade youth summer dance camps, various residencies, workshops, and dance camps for adults, as well as private events, such as weddings. Dos Rios programming also includes Summer Feast, a site-specific performance that is held throughout the property.
