Encountering the Dark Goddess
During the July waning moon, on Saturday, 30th July 2016, this informative and interactive one day workshop will focus on four Goddesses who are often associated with the "shadows" and reflect aspects of our own selves we would rather hide from or ignore instead of embracing and accepting. 
 
During this workshop we will meet the Keeper of the Secrets and the Cauldron of Inner Knowledge, the Life Transformer, and Mover and Shaker, the Sorceress ... and all the other names by which the Dark Goddess has been referred to.
 
Facing our shadow, the inner aspects of our selves that we hide from view and refuse to acknowledge, is often a very painful experience - but it is necessary in order to liberate ourselves from the past and to embrace all what the future has install for us.
 
Through myth and magick, we will journey into these hidden depths to face our shadows and open ourselves up to be transformed under the protective guidance of the Dark Goddess.
 
The four Goddesses that will be explored during this workshop are Kali, Medusa, Ereskhigal and Hekate.
 
Attendees will need to bring pens/paper (for taking additional notes) and their lunch.

Great Goddess Isis

Great Goddess Isis

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.
