matriarchy now!

Know your body. Take your medicine. Claim your power.

The world is waiting for us to step back into our power.

The world does not need us to give in the selfless way we’ve been fooled into behaving and performing. The world needs us to heal ourselves and fully embody what it is to be nourished and alive.

Our survival depends on our wholeness.

All of us that embody the varied aspects of WOMAN – whether that be through our identities, our archetypes, or our gender – have massive amounts of healing to do. The time to come into wholeness, clarity, and influence is NOW. The survival of our communities and our planet depends on how deeply and fully women are SHOWING UP.

We deserve to be the experts on our own experience.

The experts on our bodies. On the way we feel. On what we deeply desire and what we will not stand for.

This power is important. It is sacred. It is perhaps the most sacred thing. 

who am i?

I'm Stephanie Lynn Tanner... bear mama of three, fierce protectress of the earth, and keeper of spaces for all of us one juicy mistake and revelation at a time. 

My work and purpose on this planet is to debride the wounds of the world so that healing can occur. My medicine is a tender fearlessness towards suffering, a been-there-done-that approach that is both comforting and sobering. I'm passionate about going to the scary places and showing up in my raw, imperfect wholeness to heal them and to embolden you to do the same. 

I have ten years of experience holding intimate spaces for women and genderqueer folks. I am a full-spectrum doula, a registered nurse, and a community health worker. I am a life-long student of the herbal arts and integrative reproductive and sexual health.

I believe emphatically that every single person holds the power and wisdom for their own healing and that part of the path to remembering our power is being witnessed deeply. 

So I am here to witness your healing. I am beyond honored that you're here.
