The Path of the Goddess

Many of you who have traveled with me over the years have asked me, “When are you going to Greece?” With the rise of the Divine Feminine awakening all over the world and the different archetypal energies of woman being increasingly unveiled, I feel the time is night that we travel to Greece and look at some of the Goddesses who have epitomized the different qualities of the divine feminine energies for centuries; who have carved out of history the talents, wisdom, abilities, beauty and power of woman, and who deserve to be honored for their examples.

We have a beautiful journey planned for you who have wanted to experience the beauty, culture and magic of these archetypes of the many different aspects of the Divine Feminine and the role Greece has played in honoring the Goddess.
