Goddess Workshops for 2015

This new year sees a number of exciting new events as well as the return of some favourites (albeit in differing locations).

On Sunday, 1 March 2015, Frances (the Priestess in Residence of The Goddess House and author of In Her Sacred Name: Writings on the Divine Feminine) will be bringing her ever-popular Encountering the Dark Goddess workshop to the beautiful Barossa Valley (north of Adelaide).  This information and interactive 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. Four Goddesses will be explored with during this workshop - Kali, Medusa, Ereskhigal and Hekate.  At positions are limited, please contact Frances with respect to registration and booking details.

Plans are also in place to bring this workshop to Sydney in May, just after the Southern Samhain.  More details will be made available when they come to hand.
On Sunday, 15 March 2015, Frances will be sharing her Embracing the Goddess at the WEA Adult Learning at 223 Angas Street, Adelaide. 

This workshop has been specifically created for those people who are unfamiliar of the concept of the Goddess, the Sacred She, as it takes participants on a journey across the ages from the Goddess temples of ancient Malta and Turkey to the "living" ones of today, particularly found in India. Participants will also be given a unique opportunity of discovering for their own selves what it means to be a priestess of the Goddess in our modern computer age.
Bookings are essential for Embracing the Goddess which can be made through the WEA Adult Learning by telephoning them on (08) 8223 1272 during business hours, or through their web site.
Later in March, Frances will be attending the Seven Sisters Festival (a three day festival for women that will be taking place at Mt Martha in Victoria), where she will be providing an informative lecture on Who is the Goddess?, again to assist those who are unfamiliar with the concept of a Divine Feminine.
Further events are anticipated to be held later in the year, including a workshop that will focus on the Gods and Goddesses of ancient Mesopotamia that will include Inanna and Erishkigal in The Land between Two Rivers to be held in August.  More details will be made available when they are at hand. Alternatively, email Frances to be personally notified of such details.

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.
