Nourish the garden of your soul with goddess stories. Dust off the tales lurking within you that have healing powers. In a fun, creative and respectful environment we will come together in a circle of women to explore the energies and tales of the juiciest goddesses. We will walk in their footsteps. We will listen to tales of the Goddess from many traditions in all her phases: maiden, ripe woman and crone. We will unravel and explore the divine wisdom encoded in these myths, focussing on the story of Innana.
