Ishtar and the Golden Egg; Re - Birth and Re - Generating a True Love
Join Us as we delve into the exploration of the Goddess Ishtar. Known as both Queen of Heaven and the Mother of Harlots brings up questions as to what kind of Heaven we are talking about. Are there "harlots" in Heaven and when and how did this title come about? In my experience, Ishtar lifts one out of any form of prostitution. As we explored last year in the rewriting of many Greek Goddess myths, the original versions of the story were much darker and the stories included rape and other forms of violence not found in the originals.
Since Ishtar was a fertility Goddess, She was associated with sexuality and sensuality, with some accounts of ritual sex practices in temples. This is not the Goddess I have come to know, and perhaps this is an evolved version of Ishtar which is incredibly powerful but also with a highly sacred and light filled and clear energy frequecy. She holds the energy of fierce truth with an element of justice (karma) as well.
In terms of sexuality we'll explore what can happen when we allow ourselves a greater depth of experience of intimacy, if we haven't already, by consecrating this area of our lives to True Love, to Spirit, going beyond casual sex to deeply committed partnerships and sexual union within a spiritual context and intention.
This and other aspects of Ishtar will be brought through as we redeem what has been lost, or, evolve what has been taken off course, and allow for faces of the Feminine to arise which are aligned with values we would aspire and hope for our children to embrace and embody, and which can restore harmony and balance to humanity.
Our first session is on the evening of Easter Sunday at 5pm pacific. Come to this sacred circle ready to embrace and re-birth a natural aspect of yourself you feel that you have lost or repressed. You can also use this month to resurrect a project you had abandoned. We'll use the initial time to clarify intentions and bring forward what is ready to be brought forward from within.
All calls will be recorded for future listening/viewing.
For each session bring a white candle to light for our time together.

As always with the Goddess, there are multiple associations and similar aspects and interweaving with other Goddesses.
If you can be with Her in a less linear and scientific midset and with more of an expanded and creative flow kind of way, She can reveal more to your Heart.
