They understood that each season change was also a gateway of Spiritual Initiation. Their lives were intertwined with the growing seasons, tilling the land, planting the seeds, and different seasonal harvests. This was a part of the survival of the community.But the times are now different. We cannot turn back the clock. We live in a contemporary time. How does one honor the Goddess in this time? The Goddess needs a new face and an open voice to deal with the issues we are faced with as women, mothers, grandmothers and businesswomen.If the Goddess would have a new message for us what would that be? It is up to us to discover Her Voice within ourselves and let her speak. We have become a global community. We also have become cross-cultural, so it is also important to honor the Goddess in other cultures. This gives us a wide range of Goddesses to choose and learn from.The idea of this project is to inspire you to awaken to the Voice of the Goddess inside of you. Each seasonal holiday can be celebrated within small or larger groups. You can perform dance, do yoga, create sacred ritual, sing, or be inspired by poetry or music.
