Unmasking the Goddess
The Divine Feminine Alchemy Gatherings
“What is the mask I wear
that I present to the world as ‘me,’
obscuring my authenticity?
The Sacred Wound that binds me
becomes my Medicine to heal,
becomes my Gift I wield”
Steeped in the richness of Feminine Mystery, Creativity, Heart-Healing Ceremony, and the Soul Bond of Sisterhood
Umasking the Goddess
Four Divine Feminine Alchemy Gatherings Invoking the Power Within and Stoking the Fires of the Mystic Divine Feminine Intelligence
-Saturday, May 19 (Boulder Center for Conscious Community (BC3), Boulder) - The Mask – In sacred circle we enter into deep meditation to connect with our “Mask” – the false face we present to the world – and learn its lesson, embrace its pain, and begin the healing process. We will journal our experience and create a physical representation of our Mask. Using blank, primed full-face masks, we will paint and adorn them to represent the mask we present to the world – the fake “me.” Attendees are encouraged to bring special objects, feathers, paint, stones, found objects, etc. to adorn their masks to make them a true personal representation. These masks will be worn during the Embodiment Ceremony and Fire Celebration on June 16 (10 am – 4 pm)
-Saturday, June 2 (BC3, Boulder) – Wound, Medicine, Gift - Entering into deep meditation, we will uncover our Sacred Wound. We will dialog with it to discover its purpose, we will paint its picture and create the alchemy to transform the Wound into the Medicine that heals us. The final step is embodying the Gift that is birthed from this Medicine – our own special “healing” we bring to this lifetime to assist others. As a potent reminder of this Medicine and Gift, we will design our own special Power Goddess Pendant – a Goddess face (pre-made) with semi-precious stones. (10 am – 4 pm)
-Friday, June 8 (Private Residence TBA) – Preparation Meditation – Writing our Story and our Vow (Private residence TBA) Writing our story of our Mask, our Wound, our Medicine and the Gift we bring to the world. Writing our vow of Embodiment of Divine Feminine Power. These will be shared at the Embodiment Ceremony and Fire Celebration. (7-9 pm)
