The Mistress of the Beasts, the Lady of the Animals, is a figure who is known from the Ancient Near East and the Mediterranean world. She is depicted as a woman flanked by two animals, often lions or other big cats. Gallic Epona also takes on this stance, but with horses. We’ll also be looking at the Goddesses and animal connections in a wider way. Animal associations with goddesses cross cultures, from the earliest emergence of the divine women.
Welsh Goddess Ceridwen shape-changes into beasts in British myth, and there are many aspects of other goddesses and their attendant animals all over the world. Some goddesses are even represented by an animal themselves. This can be in symbolism, it can be emblematic, or representations of the goddess and her attributes.
Join us for a day of Illustrated talks, magical attunement, magical crafting, practical guidance and ceremony.
We’d like each person attending to bring a presentation of 5 minutes if they wish, this is optional. This would include your chosen goddess, and her associate animal. Beasts can include mammals, reptiles, fish or birds. Please also bring her into our closing ceremony with an invocation to her In general discussion, we’ll be looking at.
Who are the well known and lesser known goddesses and animal pairs? How can we relate to these goddesses today? How can we invoke their animal powers and in which situations are they helpful? How does the perception of these animals change through the centuries? through art history and changing symbolism, art history, religion, scientific observations, and societal attitudes? We’ll come together for a ceremony where each participant will act as a priestess of their chosen goddess, and bring the attributes of the animal to the ceremony. If you have a statue of your goddess, and/or an ornament of the animal, please bring it with you.
Please bring packed lunch and join us for wine or tea and good cake afterwards. Weather permitting, we may have some outdoors magic.
Places are limited. Please note the venue is a private home with cats. All welcome who come in good will.
