Call of the Ancient Sisterhood
teacher of esoteric wisdom & ancient mystery school traditions
24 Coburg St, Saint John, NB E2L 3J5
In this workshop, Cynthia shares fascinating and relevant information and mythology about an ancient and forgotten epoch of prehistory when the Goddess, the Great Earth Mother, was revered as deity. It was a time when life was holistic in nature, ritually celebrated, and the Sisterhood was an inherent part of daily life. It served as the wellspring of wisdom and unity within the community. Women understood the changing of the seasons, the cosmic cycles of time, and the rhythms of their own bodies.
Changes occurred and external forces of domination and control through fear began to pervade the peaceful Goddess culture. The knowledge, ceremonies and earth-honoring ways of life were not only forgotten they were forbidden, methodically perverted, desecrated and annihilated from historical memory. Women were severed from their innate wisdom, their connection with the earth and from each other. Her voice was silenced and the teachings and rituals of the Goddess were forced underground into the realms of the subconscious for thousands of years.
But the flame of the collective soul of the ancient feminine was never extinguished. It burns, still today, within the very depth of our being and flows within the cellular memory of our own matriarchal lineages. It is time…the prophesied time of the return of the Divine Feminine. The light of the Sacred Feminine and the violet flame is returning as the way-shower for a humanity that has lost its balance. The call is sounding for women to reawaken to their birthright and recollect the wisdom and ways of the Sacred Feminine…to bring restorative healing to ourselves, our children and future generations to come.
In this introductory workshop into the feminine mysteries, Cynthia will be sharing teachings on:
THE ANCESTRAL WISDOM OF THE SISTERHOODS – The old wisdom and ways of the ancient feminine have been preserved through mystery school traditions and passed down through matriarchal lineages. Elders and earth keepers of indigenous world traditions have safeguarded ceremonies, sacred dance, songs and stories that are lovingly shared with women of this generation.
CEREMONY and RITUAL – Ceremony is the language which connects us to the unity of all things seen and unseen. We will learn simple but powerful ceremonies which you can immediately begin to practice and make part of your daily spirituality.
THE PATH OF BEAUTY – to walk the path of beauty is to walk the path of the Divine Feminine, seeing past the illusion to the heart of the truth. It is to live from our highest potential and inner knowing, to resonate from the heart and choose in the present moment. Beauty is the highest frequency attainable.
SACRED DANCE, SONGS, & SOUND – These are powerful forms of expression used for communing with nature and the unseen forces. They are tools to balance the energetic field and to reach higher states of awareness and in this workshop we will celebrate our connection with sacred dance and song handed down through oral tradition.
This workshop serves as a beautiful introduction into the mysteries and ways of the ancient feminine, but it is only a beginning point. To mend and reweave the tapestry of knowledge, ancestral wisdom and solidarity of the ancient sisterhood is a life process. To re-member and deepen into the true meaning of sisterhood which serves as a support and foundation of trust and mutual respect among women is a new, yet ancient concept.
After the workshop, you will have the opportunity to meet with Cynthia and other members of the Circle of the Ancient Sisterhood to discuss possibilities of creating a circle in your own community or joining an existing circle. These community circles meet on a regular basis (approximately twice a month) to deepen into the wisdom teachings of the Divine Feminine, to practice and learn new ceremonies, songs, movements and holistic practices. Most importantly, in these circles we take the time to be with other women in a sacred way … to dream, to create, to make all things beautiful!
