Grandmother Selina will be leading the Opening Ceremony.
In her own words..
"Long ago I sent a call out to Creation Seeking Truth.
The Ones to respond were the Divine Intelligences in Nature. Initially it was awkward and then got better....and better still until this relationship became Co-Creative in its purpose.
I enter into the Stillness bringing Sacred Drum and call forth the Divine Intelligence Of Earth (Mother Earth Mu) and the Divine Intelligence that is the Council of Trees...
They have shown me how to present them to individuals or groups in order to align the Frequency of Love they wish to share with Humanity.
Together we will enter into the Stillness and connect with the Frequencies Of Nature and their powerful ability to realign us and bring Balance, Peace, Oneness and Joy.
And So It Is."

Shakti Goddess Ritual: Shakti is one of names that symbolizes the creative power of the Divine Feminine. It represents the force that sparks the flame of existence in all its infinite manifestations. By honouring Shakti, we align ourselves with truth, beauty & divinity on Earth. We become a sacred instrument; a channel that brings Spirit into form. In this ritual, we will celebrate the Universal Mother within each of us by honouring the light of our being, the voice of our heart, and the wisdom of our soul.

Mary and Michelle will be offering a Goddess Kirtan.
GODDESS KIRTAN: "Close your eyes sweet soul sisters and surrender inward, into the very Heart of Life and Creation. Ride the waves of mantric melodies, vibrations and rhythms into sacred silence and inner stillness. Let us weave the joyful instruments of our voices until they merge to become the One Infinite and Divine Song. Enter the Goddess Temple of the Heart – a place of love, refuge and delight – and let us be reunited with the Divinity that resides within all of us."

Reagan is offering an Aromatherapy Ritual at The Goddess Gathering
Using pure, therapeutic grade essential oils we will dive into an aromatherapy ritual to balance the body's electrical energy, ground, and assist us in setting our intentions. Blending the frequencies of the oils with our own unique energy we will align and harmonize our will to the greater good and our true heart's desires, surrendering to the process and our own divine wisdom and power within.

Courtney will be the guiding us through the closing ceremony.
Love Life, Live love, these are the words that guide Courtney through her life as Mamma, Yoga Teacher, Lover, and Wild Woman. As a worshipper of the natural world, she has spent hours tucked away in the solitude of long Prairie grasses watching the endless blue sky roll on above her. She comes alive at the smell of the forest, the saltiness of the Sea air, or marvelling at the wonder of the mountains. A mix of an old soul and a perpetual child, Courtney's passions are varied and deep. Poetry, writing, painting, playing with children, being with horses, pregnancy and birth, caring for others, sunshine, moonlight, moss, music, and exploring her ever changing roles in this Earthly journey are all things that light her up inside. A creature of constant metamorphosis she works to deepen her understanding of the beauty and power in the cycle of Life, Death, and Rebirth. A gifted holder of space, she creates a vessel of transformation in which you are invited to wake up to the full potential of your Spirit.
