People We Love


Our 2015 RVA On Site Graduating Class!

The Matrona has had an influence world-wide since it’s birth. We have created a compilation of folks that ‘We Love’ who represent and offer gifts to humanity that are in alignment with the Matrona. This includes authors, wise-women, elders and even some of our graduates!

If you would like to be added to this list, or if you are searching for someone in a particular area not listed below, please email jaydeematrona@gmail.com.
