Voices of the Goddess - Caitlin and John Matthews Fri 01 Dec - Sun 03 Dec

  • Spirituality


Every country has its voices who speak for the spirit of the land. Britain and Ireland have their own tutelary goddess, appearing in many forms to inspire and guide: Cailleach, Queen of the Wood, Scotia, Britannia. Those poets most tuned to her voice address us prophetically from their communion with the land. Our exploration, including poetry of David Jones, Charles Williams and W.B.Yeats, transcends national and political divides, speaking from the deep land of our common heritage. We invite you to our magical 32nd Mystery School, where the way to the deep lands opens through myth, meditation, ritual and poetry.
