Women's Empowerment Workshop
All women are reflections of the Divine Feminine (though sometimes we need to be reminded of this fact). Early man honored women for their ability to create life and give birth. Indeed, early humans paid homage to the “Great Mother” – our first monotheistic deity. Over time, however, society began to dismiss and even suppress the Sacred Feminine, causing women to lose touch with their direct connection to the Divine. Now, it is time to relearn, reclaim, and rejoice in the history, mythology, power, and presence of the Goddess!
