Meet our Goddess Guides
Meet the EXTRA-ordinary Women who will be facilitating the activities and sessions of your Goddess week. As a team we are passionate that EVERY-woman has a powerful voice and the time has come to speak up …
- We recognize that the term Goddess has been distorted and reduced to sexual fantasy and marketing tag-lines. This reduction has put limits on women in society and the results have been devastating to all people regardless of age, gender or culture.
- Reclaim the unique expression of Goddess that is YOURS and break through the limits that have constrained you.
- We are the stand that healing gender, age and cultural relations brings harmony to humanity.
- Gain access to healing the relationships in your life bringing harmony and peace to your experience of living.
- We are leaders in the movement calling for women to step out from behind the curtain and take leading roles.
- Embrace your natural wisdom and leadership.
- We assert that there has been a diminishment of the divine within us. Violence and fear thrive in the absence of the divine. We reclaim the divine.
- Recover your divine connection casting off fear, violence and victimhood.
- We declare a new era of interdependence. A strong connection to our divine feminine brings balance and harmony with the divine masculine.
- Be unrestrained and open to receive and dance with the masculine (yours and his).
Now is the time for us to transcend these limits and to take our natural place as full and equal partners. To do this we begin with ourselves, healing our rifts and reconnecting to our authentic power.
As Goddess Guides we provide a safe place to inquire into the experiences that distort and distract women from our connection to our higher purpose and joy. We have discovered for ourselves those experiences which leave us in a world of shame and guilt disconnected from who we really are … GODDESSES! Ready to leave shame and guilt behind?
