Embodying the Goddess:
Rise Up, Reclaim, and Embrace Your Power!
October 11-15, 2017
A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow
just as abundantly as her laughter.
A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and
A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world. – Ritu Ghatourey
This year the Divine Feminine comes into Her full shining power to create positive change on the earth and in the universe. Now is the time too that we all must embrace our own power and embody the Goddess. During times of uncertainty and despair, the Goddess and Womyn have been the ones to truly change everything they touch with compassion, intellect, and strength.
For our Fall 2017 Event, we will explore the power we bring to this world when we engage all we touch with the Power of the Goddess. Gaia herself is unleashing her mighty powers to sweep away that which no longer serves us. We must be in service during these turbulent times, each of us bringing our unique abilities as we aid in midwifing this evolution of energy. Now is the time for us to examine and develop our strengths as individuals and as the collective.
Come stand tall in your Divine Feminine Power with your sisters! Come be in community, ritual, and worship at our beloved Mountain. Let the Goddess remind us of who we really are. Allow Her to kindle our creative fire, and inspire us to action in every facet of our lives during this time of planetary awakening.
We eagerly await your track/workshop proposals exploring the different aspects of power, integrating passion into our lives, and using our power for change in our own lives and community. Please send these to Facilitate Event Track or Workshop.
