2014 Australian Goddess Conference

At this year's Australian Goddess Conference, to be held over the weekend of 24 to 26 October in Sydney, the theme is "The Wellspring" - a place of community gathering, exploration of wise ways, and the celebration of the receptive waters of womanhood and the moon.

It is within these receptive waters that the wisdom of the ancients, the primordial mothers, can be found.  As such, I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting a workshop at this year's Goddess Conference on two such "mothers" from the ancient lands of Mesopotamia - Tiamat (the primordial Creatrix) and Ereshkigal.
As the Goddess Conference will coincide with the Moon transitioning through its 'dark" (hidden) phase, this presents the perfect opportunity to delve within and enter our deep subconscious where these ancient Goddess often reside.
Mesopotamia was referred to as "the land between two rivers" by the ancient Greeks, and it is here that we will immerse ourselves into the watery Sumerian depths to meet the great primordial sea serpent, Tiamat, She who created the heavens and earth from Her own body. From here, we will then journey deep into the Babylonian Underworld, through the seven sacred gates to "Great Below" to meet Ereshkigal, the Goddess of Irkalla (the land of the dead or underworld) who striped Inanna to the bone in order to expose the True Self - will she do the same to you?

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.
