The Glastonbury Egyptian Grove
Thursday 3rd August – afternoon
Workshop: Meet the Goddesses of Egypt
We, the Egyptian Goddess Grove, call you home to Egypt: remembering the fertile Black Land and Her Goddesses in a ceremony where we sing our offerings and receive individual blessings from the Mothers. Meet the Ladies of the Stars – Nut: Magic, Isis: Love, Hathor: Sovereignty, Mut, and Healing: Sekhmet. We will also honour the lesser-known Goddesses of the Egyptian Pantheon, such as Tefnut and Ma’at. Speak the ancient words of the ancestors and hear Her echo in your life today.
The Glastonbury Egyptian Goddess Grove is a group of individuals from numerous spiritual backgrounds who all meet monthly to learn, celebrate and connect with the Egyptian Goddesses, Gods and Ancestors. We welcome all different traditions, structures and fluidity in connecting to these ancient memories, so that can teach one another, grow and experience all that we can!
Among our members are:

Anna-Saqqara has been developing a soul-centred way of working with horses since dedicating as a Priestess of Rhiannon, researching other horse Goddesses such as Epona, Demeter, and Maccha, to create the Way of the Horse. When combined with natural horsemanship and equine-assisted learning this creates a grounded, therapeutic experience for both horse and human.
