& Walking An Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth
Location: Malibu - At the Sophia Temple of OLANDAR
3PM - 6PM
(No one turned away for sincere lack of funds)
Discover the Feminine Face of God through the art of sacred pilgrimage, coupling two emerging popular trends: the desire for purposeful travel and unearthing the long hidden and empowering aspects of the Divine Feminine found at her sacred locales across continents and cultures.
Sacred or purposeful travel, the contemporary version of ancient pilgrimage, is undertaken for many of the same reasons as in times past. Humans still yearn to connect with ancestral roots, curry favor with their deity, or participate in meaningful activities that uplift their spirit or nourish their soul. Travelers may be called to seek healing for their body and mind or broaden their horizons about cultures and peoples in other places, ultimately feeling more a part of the global family.
Are you an armchair traveler and would like to see pictures of Goddess sites around the world? Have you been curious about the energetics of sacred travel and sacred sites? Are you planning or dreaming of going to sacred places anytime soon? How is the essence of Goddess different in her ancient sacred places? Do you want to learn what other devotees of Goddess have experienced during these sacred pilgrimages?
