Divine Feminine 101: November Circle
4 Tuesday Mornings, November 9-30, 10am-Noon
In this 4-session circle, we will explore the divine feminine. We will learn about ancient goddesses, dating back 30,000 years. We’ll also explore our own goddess profiles, reflect on what they mean, and how those archetypes and myths can help us make sense of our lives today. You can discover your own profile by taking the Goddess Quiz at www.goddessgift.com This assessment will be required for the circle discussions.
Topics for the four weekly sessions will include:
- When God Was a Woman
- Eve Was Framed
- Who’s Your Goddess
- Claim Your Power
You can access your Goddess Profile by taking

Sacred Circles are offered to women 50+who are seeking new ways
to claim and celebrate their wisdom, in the company of other wise women.
In all circles we will read poetry, listen to music; practice mindfulness through guided meditation, written exercises and a bit of homework. Each session will begin with Celebration and conclude with Discovery & Intention.
Potential Circle Topics
New circle ideas are always percolating in my brain; here are a few for your consideration. Let me know if something here sparks an interest for you.
Maiden, Mother, Matriarch and Crone are four major Feminine Archetypes that we will explore in this 4-week journey. We will use Jean Shinoda-Bolen’s book “Goddesses in Older Women; how to be a juicy crone” as a guide. We will explore the many aspects of the Crone, like Wrath, Laughter, Compassion and Wisdom; we will also have the opportunity to discover and share our unique and personal Goddess Archetypes.
The Feminine Face of God
What do you see and feel if I say “God?” Now, what do you see and feel when I say “The Feminine Face of God?” What if God is a woman and you could more easily identify with her? In this 4-week class, we will explore the feminine aspects of God, and of Jesus, and in ourselves. Holy Wisdom, or Hagia (aye-ya) Sophia, is one aspect of the divine feminine that we will discuss.
Life by Design
Don’t let your “shoulds” get your down!
Death & Dying with Dignity
