Gertrud Mueller Nelson was a Montessori teacher and a high school teacher before
raising three children. She also studied at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich. As an artist she is known
for her stained glass, clip art, and silver design. She has published seven books, many articles, and has
illustrated eleven books. As a speaker, she gives retreats, keynote addresses and workshops internationally.
Her books include:
- To Dance With God/ Family Ritual and Community Celebration
- Here All Dwell Free/ Stories to Heal the Wounded Feminine

Ms Nelson's emphasis is on the cycle of seasons and festivals as opportunities for the
grounding of spiritual life in both established formal ritual and in the humble personal rituals of daily living.
In her book, Here All Dwell Free, the story of the Handless Maiden is her source for
images of the wounded feminine and it's healing.
