The great secrets and teachings of the 'Women's Mysteries' - the wisdom of the cycles of the Earth, the Moon, our lives and the menstrual cycle; how to live according to the seasons, the moon phases and your menstrual cycle; understanding and flowing with the transformational potential of the menstrual cycle, of pregnancy and of birth. Connecting with the Divine Feminine and the shamanic journey of the feminine cycle - menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause.

The Goddess Conference, Queensland, Beltane 2009


"There are many Avalons"
She said through the mic, the embodiment of Vivienne addressing the circle of priestesses.

We'd gathered to honour the Magdalene at Beltane at Mermaid Waters in a Temple.
We remembered again.

The GAIA (Goddess Association In Australia) Conference was a beautiful gathering of beautiful women from all around Australia.

The conferences have been going for 6 years, the first 3 in Melbourne led by Avril Web and the last 3 on the Gold Coast led by Patricia Corner, High Priestess of the Pomegranate Grove.

There was much to be learned, healed, heard, honoured and celebrated.

I gave a session on Healing Previous Childbirth Experiences and as Shamanic Midwife facilitated a journey for the women visiting the five altars of Mary Magdalene - Voice, Truth, Self Love, Dedication and Maturity.

Magdalena was a scapegoat, desecrated by the patriarchal church, restory-ed into a whore. Before the lies were told, she was a priestess, in full connection with her power, an equal to Jesus. She represented feminine power that the Church sort to control and was made the sacrifice. And it was a long long time again before strength, power and equality to men was given back to women. And in some places it still hasn't happened. Known as the biggest cover up made by the Catholic Church, this story was the feature of an ABC Compass program recently and it was reported that not long ago the Catholic Church made a public apology for the lies they told about Mary Magdalene.

In the Temple we danced, sang, laughed and cried.
Hard to leave.

Replenished, refueled and realivened
I returned to Avalon.
