About this Course
"She is the egg and the seed of the world ... She is darkness as well as light. Her cycles encompass all moods and all phases. She is queen of the Bright Night and of the Darkness, guide to the lost traveller and pathway to the Underworld. She brings creativity and visions; she also brings, sleep, darkness, and death ... She is the home of the souls of the unborn and of the dead waiting for rebirth." ~ Anne Kent Rush
The Dark Goddesses are the Initiators, the Psychopomps, the threshold Goddesses between our world and the otherworld. They mediate our consciousness, expose our shadows, and accompany us through the underworld – through our unconscious. Many of the Dark Goddesses are Creators and Destroyers – they hold sway over the most powerful moments in human lives: childbirth, initiation, death, dreams, and both shamanic and psychic experiences. In this course, we will meet and connect with a few of the Dark Goddesses, experiencing them through ritual practice and meditation.
Delve into the realms of the Dark with two experienced guides: Priestesses Brandi Auset and Kimberly Moore. Explore each Goddesses myth and practices and connect deeply through guided meditation. Open to what the Dark Goddesses are poised to reveal for your journey this season.
