The Deer Goddess is an ancient figure, one who personifies the great mother in many cultures. Come join us on Sunday 19th April for an introduction to this primal figure.
You will receive a workshop resource pack emailed to you before the workshop with readings, articles and a copy of my article ‘Ancient Mother of Loch Lomond’ (featuring the Deer Goddess and the Cailleach) published in Sage Woman. Your invited to bring a story or image to share that calls to you.
You’ll receive a deer charm or antler charm to incorporate into your art piece
In sacred circle we will share stories and thoughts from the reading – is the Deer Goddess actually a goddess? We’ll discuss what mysteries she offers and look at other deer figures throughout different cultures – from the tattoos of the preserved body of a woman from Altai Mountains to Elen of the ways and to the goddess Artemis.
Then a guided meditation will set the scene leading into a shamanic journey which will take you between the worlds accompanied by live drumming. There will be time after the journey to record your impressions through art and journalling. Then we will share our journeys.
In the afternoon we will create a wall hanging, inspired by our journey, allowing the essence of our connection to flow through into our artwork.
No experience needed in shamanic journeying or needle felting – all art materials will be provided.
