The Goddess & Me

9 Months of Circling & Ceremony

considering joining us?  please come play at ‘the goddess meet & greet,’ sun jun 6 @ 10am

hi folks!  I’d love to connect with you at the meet & greet.
we’ll circle together, learn about the program, ask questions,
and have a direct experience with the goddess herself.  welcome!

Many Goddesses

live circle: 3rd sunday mornings via zoom, 10am-1pm
9 month experience: three sequential 3-month cycles
exchange: $333/mo for 9 months (scholarship available)

 

‘the goddess & me’ opens pathways to build strong, living relationships with the goddess and her many wondrous faces.  she has guided you here…welcome!

goddesses of every frequency – joy, courage, sovereignty, ferocity, forgiveness, prosperity, wayfinding, surrender, creativity, love – are waiting to teach, support, and love us.  there is a matron goddess for every human experience, and chapter of living.

this work is juicy, fun, and potent!  you can join the ever-turning wheel as any 3-month cycle honoring maiden, mother, or crone begins, and then stay for 9 months of circling, healing, crafting, lunar rhythms, living altars, prayer bowls, ceremonies, community.  think magic, mystery, and home.

the goddess is alive and thriving – trust that her perfect faces will reveal themselves to you, as you activate priestess aspects within.  there is no ‘set’ path – only the beautiful one you are already on.  welcome!

One Circle

included: ‘rhythm of the cosmos’ on new & full moons
included: guidance for DIY quests, crafts, ceremonies
special: altars, prayer bowl, ceremonies, healings

 

one of the most unique things about this program is that we each ‘bring our own goddess.’  this means we can learn about and meet lots of different goddesses in circle, while doing our own deepening work with the goddess who speaks to our sacred hearts.

another lovely thing about this circle is how it connects us with antiquity – seekers and mystics have followed the call of the goddess for 32,000 years – and also brings the work alive in our dynamic times.  through all of time she has been here for us…and she is here for us now.

real alchemy is available, as we welcome ourselves home via the magic of circling together and sacred ceremonial work.  we’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll celebrate, and we’ll deepen together.

our container is strong – we honor lovingkindness, respect, vulnerability, and generosity.  we hold our lives as living ceremonies, as we walk with the goddess as kind teacher, loving sister, wise elder, and beloved friend.

‘BYOG’

the wheel is ever turning.  our circle opens to newcomers at the beginning of each 3-month maiden, mother, or crone cycle, for a full 9 months in the container regardless of where you enter.  each of us will quest to discover which maiden, mother, or crone aspect is aligned for us to travel with – think ‘bring your own goddess!’

there is real richness here, as we share our experiences and learn from each other about the goddesses we’re walking with.  33 of us in circle might bring 33 different goddess aspects for crone – she may strengthen you as elli and roar to me as sekhmet.   in this way, we deepen with our many chosen goddesses, learning from and connecting with each other while working together in larger circle.

each of us brings to circle our unique backgrounds, heritages, star origins, and lived experiences – a juicy cauldron, indeed!  there is such deep magic in engaging with the goddess with a full and open heart – this ride is wild, deep, and sweet.

The experience

depending on where we enter the wheel, we’ll each quest for an aligned goddess aspect of maiden, mother, or crone.  once the goddess reveals herself, we’ll each perform an opening ceremony before attending first circle and beginning our goddess studies.

each 3-month segment moves in a similar pattern: we open and circle in our 1st month, create objects of power and engage in study in our 2nd  month, and have a direct healing experience from the goddess herself in the 3rd month of every maiden, mother, or crone cycle.

full and new moons bring ‘rhythm of the cosmos’ emails, which introduce 18 goddesses over our 9 months together, in addition to ideas about working with each lunar theme.

at every circle, we’ll share what’s going on for us in our lives.  we don’t offer advice – we listen, learn, and love each other with simplicity and kindness.  each of us tends a community prayer bowl, offering support requests from circle to the goddesses we walk with.

Priestess Aspects

on a pilgrimage to a desert goddess temple, I was graced to spend time with the temple priestess.  she embodied dedication in word, thought, and deed, whether she was tending the labyrinth, feeding the temple cats, picking up laundry soap, tidying offerings left from seekers, answering emails, or leading ceremonies under the stars.  she performed each task with love and reverence to the goddess…

…this is the role of priestess.  this circle may activate priestess aspects within…and what that looks like is up to the goddess, and you.

Rhythm of the Cosmos

the moon is such a powerful force in our lives – she shapes oceanic tides, offers powerful support for ceremony in her many phases, and guides the flow of women’s bodies and cycles.

the ‘rhythm of the cosmos’ emails arrive on new and full moons, to help keep us in connection with the moon mother, and also introduce 18 different faces of the goddess over our 9 months together…here’s a peek from early 2021.

Goddess Altars

part of ‘the goddess and me’ is learning how to live and embody your own version of goddess spirituality. as such, we are asked to live in a magical way, whether we’re carrying out the compost or crafting a powerful ceremony.  one of the ways we can embody our friendship with the goddess is to create and tend a living altar.

here’s an article about living the work, and creating an altar for circle.  each of our altars houses a community prayer bowl, and everyone in circle is welcome to offer prayers that each of us and our matron goddess tend to.

Program Nutshell

the goddess will call to you in divine timing, and the circle opens to newcomers as each 3-month segment of maiden, mother, or crone begins, for a 9-month adventure in the wheel.  we circle together one sunday morning a month for ceremony, healings, and community, learn about 18 goddesses in our twice-monthly ‘rhythm of the cosmos’ emails on new and full moons, tend our altars and community prayer bowls, and also connect outside of circle to support each other.

In thanks

I’ve felt the kind hands of magic and the goddess my whole life.  many years ago, while living in santa fe, I had a spontaneous and dynamic awakening that sparked a conscious desire to deepen with her.  that’s led to many amazing adventures, and I’ll share one here.

for 13 moons, I set aside 3 days every month for personal retreat with the goddess, stepping completely outside of my daily life to live the work.  moon after moon, I wandered in labyrinths and under starry skies with my little travel altar, candle, and journal.   in that container, beloved sekhmet revealed herself to me in powerful ways, appearing in dreams, books, magazines, visions, signs, and omens.  as I began to know her through extended study and direct revelation, I came to understand and deeply love her as a goddess of awesome ferocity, and also love without limit.  sa sekhem sahu!

Blessings to you

may the goddess, the divine mother,
the wild one, the shy child,
the fierce warrioress, the grinning crone,
lay blessings at your feet like roses,
and shower miracles down on you, like rain

love, anna
