About the Minoan Snake Goddess: Mother, priestess, life giver, She is Nature embodied. The caves are her wombs; the sea, her birthing waters; the ancient groves of sacred trees, her original temples; the twin peaked mountains, her breasts; the labyrinth, the meandering path of life. She represents birth, death, regeneration; the sun, moon and fertile earth; and our ability to self-heal as we journey towards our own inner Truth.
May 2014 – Island of Malta: Step back in time as we journey to the ancient island of Malta! It is said by some that no where on Earth is the Goddess more present than the Maltese Islan
ds. Infused with mystery and wonder. Malta was once filled with Goddess devotees and fertility cults. Their temples, built before even the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge, are said to be the oldest largest standing structures on Earth. They actually resemble the curves and abundance of the Great Mother; one can easily imagine how one once entered the ‘womb’ to commune with the Goddess and then was ‘reborn’ into the sunlight.
The Maltese islands, located between Italy and Africa, vibrate with sacredness and power. This ancient Goddess culture, characterized by peace, creative expression, and spiritual devotion, lingers today. We hope you can join us on this transformative pilgrimage, where the Mediterranean sun promises to reveal the treasures that lie deep within, where the azure waters will heal, where the local food will nourish, where the symbols etched in ancient stone will speak of your own sacred truth. And where, with the loving arms of the Mother energy holding you, you cannot help but emerge reborn.
