Sacred Goddess Circles coming to Adelaide

Since 2007, The Goddess House has been hosting devotional circles where the Divine Feminine, the Great Goddess, could be honoured through the acts of meditation, offering, song and ritual.  During this time, there has been an increasing number of requests for specific women-only circles where Goddess myth and lore, as well as aspects of feminine life ("women's mysteries") could be shared.

Riding the Wave of Life

Avebury Stone Circle, England
For the last five weeks I have been travelling the lands of my ancestors and as such, have been lucky enough to visit a number of wonderful ancient sites that are at least 3,000 to even 5,000 years old.  These sites were built by people for reasons we are yet to understand and probably never will.  A number of them however were built to align with astrological and astronomical occurrences, and when we find ourselves standing amongst such monuments we can't help but wonder "what were these monuments really built for" and "why were they built in the first place"?
In order to help ascertain insight into these questions, and many more, a moment of stillness always comes in handy.  And as I take a moment to collect my thoughts, I would like to share this essay from Madisyn Taylor about "Riding the Wave of Life".

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
