Woman Shaman

I have been looking forward to meeting Max Dashu ever since I knew that she was making her first visit to the UK to attend the Goddess Conference. Today fifteen of us had the privilege of meeting with her for a workshop on Woman Shaman. She definitely lived up to the expectation with her scholarship and sheer depth of knowledge about women as drummers, dreamers, oracles, healers, ecstatic dancers, shapeshifters and spirit-riders across the continents and the generations. A fascinating slide presentation was followed by the opportunity to engage in ecstatic dance, to cast off all that holds us back and to receive healing. To learn more take a look at her website The Suppressed Histories

Today has been a special day, meeting Max Dashu, the Lammas Ceremony at the Goddess Temple, a flame day as a flamekeeper of Brighid and now the moon is rising just past its fullness but utterly beautiful in the night sky. Tomorrow the Goddess Conference itself opens.

A blessed Lammas to all.

Lovely short write up! Hopefully, you'll give us details of the conference, too.

Hope you don't mind--I've taken the liberty of posting this entry to MetaPagan, a selective blog aggregator. I'm hoping more people will enjoy reading it (and the follow-up? Please, please?) too.

Hi Cat,

Yes that is fine, I have just got back from a very wonderful day, very late, hope to find time to write it up tomorrow.

Blessings
