This group is an off-shoot of The Goddess Gathering Spiritual Awakening Support Group. This group is more experiential, hands-on, and will dive deeper into topics and concepts presented in the Goddess Gathering. This is soul evolution and personal exploration through immersion in metaphysical studies, spiritual exercises, and activities. This is a safe space for Awakening Women to gather and learn about metaphysical, esoteric, and deep spiritual topics without fear of being judged or ridiculed.

Space is limited! Registration for attendance at the july group closes july 15, 2021

Please note: Though these experiences will dive deeper into topics presented in the Goddess Gathering Spiritual Support Group, you do not need to attend the Goddess Gathering Spiritual Support group to attend this Study Group (Though you are invited and very welcome)!!  The Goddess Gathering Spiritual Support Group is a live online support group for women experiencing the surreal and often unexplainable. Participants are those who are living and actively participating in the real world, but are spiritually waking up to something much more. This group acknowledges that many may have experiences that might sound crazy and impossible to “mainstream society.” No experiences are judged in these gatherings. The Goddess Gathering is a support group, discussion group, and sacred space for women looking for guidance, understanding, meaning, and connection on their spiritual awakening journey. In this support group, members in similar spiritual situations come together for self-exploration, to share coping strategies, to feel more empowered, to find purpose, and for a sense of community. The support group discusses relevant metaphysical & esoteric topics, which we will then further explore in Goddess Gathering: Metaphysical Study Group. Open to women anywhere in the USA and Canada. 

 

Who is this Goddess Gathering: Metaphysical Study Group for? Open to modern mystics!  Spiritually curious! Opened-minded! Women experiencing the surreal and often unexplainable. The Goddess Gathering is for women sensitive to others’ energy/emotions (Empaths), women looking to understand & develop their intuitive/psychic gifts, women undergoing a spiritual transformation/awakening, starseeds, lightworkers, walk-ins, shamans, witches, Indigo/Rainbow/Crystal/Diamond Children, women who have had near-death experiences, mystical experiences, kundalini awakening, healing crisis, spiritual emergencies, ascension symptoms, past life experiences, experiences with the divine, peak experiences, dark night of the soul, crisis leading to personal transformation, intuitive/psychic/medium experiences, and other hard to describe spiritual experiences. The impossible is possible! Any woman who has had spiritual experiences (such as those described above) and is on a spiritual awakening journey is welcome – no matter if they are a “beginner” or more advanced. 

 

Please note: This group should not take the place of regular mental and physical healthcare. You must be at least 18 to join this group.

Animal Communication.  A deeper discussion of the topic introduced in the Goddess Gathering Support Group: Animals and Spirituality: Animal Spirit Guides, Animal Totems, and Animal Familiars. Your animal companions….dogs, cats, birds, etc are very welcome at this workshop!!!  Christina is proud to host Psychic Medium Brenda LouAnn for an animal gallery reading! Since an early age, Brenda has been blessed with the gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and an inquisitive mind. These talents have lead her along numerous paths in life that few seldom trod. The best way for Brenda to describe her “gift” is the intense intuition and ability to read people, animals, and personalities; both those in the physical world and those in the realm of spirit.  Participants will receive messages from their animal companions…living or in spirit OR from their animal totem/animal spirit guide.  Please have a JPEG photo handy if there is a specific animal you would like to communicate with. Then, learn about the different types of animal communication and intuitive abilities. Learn all about telepathy, how to tune in to your animals and connect heart to heart, mind to mind, energy to energy and tap into the universal language of all species. Christina will then facilitate intuitive development exercises and activities as well as a guided meditation/hypnosis for you to tap into your intuition and communicate with your pet companions. Fee: $55. Register at the bottom of this page. Please register by July 15, 2021.

Faery Magick Workshop. A deeper discussion of the topic introduced in the Goddess Gathering Support Group: The Elements, Fairies, Gnomes, Phoenix, Pixies, Mermaids, and other Elementals. Faery Magick is the act of asking the Fae to assist in your spells, ceremony, and rituals. It is divining, communicating, and channeling them and listening to the lessons they have to teach. The foundation of Faery Magick and working with the Fae is Trust. The Fae don’t trust humans easily as humans have destroyed nature. Therefore, we will discuss how to build rapport and relationships with the Fae, how to become better stewards, and protectors of nature. We will discuss ALL the different types of Fae, building a faery altar, communicating with the Fae, where to find the Fae, ways to protect yourself when working with the Fae, and Faery spells & rituals.  Christina will also guide you through a guided meditation/hypnosis to meet and communicate with the Fae.  Fee: $55.

This class covers the history of magical and spiritual herbalism from different cultures.

2pm to 5pm CST ONLINE VIA ZOOM
Psychopomps, Death Doulas, Exit Guides, and Soul Midwives
. A deeper discussion of the topic introduced in the Goddess Gathering Support Group: The Veil, Samhain, Halloween, Mediumship, and Sensing Spirit. Psychopomps are a concept originating from Greek mythology. Psychopomps are soul guides that escort and guide newly deceased souls from Earth to the afterlife. Their role is not to judge the deceased, but simply to guide.  Modern Psychopomps are called Death Doulas, Exit Guides, and Soul Midwives. Death is one of life’s most potent, transformational, and sacred passages. It is also one of the most denied, ignored, and feared. We will discuss examples of Psychopomps throughout history, soul guiding techniques in different spiritual traditions, deities/gods/goddesses that are Psychopomps and how to work with them.  We will discuss ways that you can facilitate this sacred work (with family, friends, clients, patients, as a volunteer in hospice) and ways to tap into the veil. Death is a journey we all will take when it is our time….there is nothing to fear. Fee: $55. Register at the bottom of this page.

 

November 20, 2021
2pm to 5pm CST ONLINE VIA ZOOM
 Ancestral Healing WorkshopA deeper discussion of the topic introduced in the Goddess Gathering Support Group: Working with the Ancestors and Ancestral Medicine. Ancestral Healing allows us to make peace with the members of our family, forgive them, and help them heal their unresolved emotional issues, problems or trauma, going back many generations. In so doing, it releases you from any energetic patterns and energetic cords that link you to them – patterns that can have a disruptive influence on your life today. When we have an ancestor from our past that needs healing, they hang on energetically to our family line and create negative energetic structures. This causes us to have a harder time letting go of things that no longer serve us and leaves us feeling like we are stuck. We may notice that we repeat the same patterns over and over. We know that this is causing us pain, but feel like there is no way out. Ancestral healing is extremely beneficial for many people because when we release and heal these ancestral patterns, any blockages we have in our lives clear and heal. This too can clear the way for our children and future descendants. And don’t worry, you don’t need to know anything/everything about your lineage(s)/ancestors or even be in a good relationship with them to do this work. Fee: $55. Register at the bottom of this page.

 

More dates/topics to be announced. Stay tuned!!!
