Conference begins in
Welcome to the Glastonbury Goddess Conference
In 2023, we will honour, celebrate and welcome the Crone Goddess in the 28th Goddess Conference in Glastonbury UK. This is the last part of what has become a six year cycle of Goddess archetypes we started in 2018, and in 2023 we will connect deeply to Her as Lady of the Otherworld.
For the 2023 in person Goddess Conference in Glastonbury, we will once again raise the great magical Temple of the Goddess. Here, where we may see and know Her in some of Her forms, we can offer Her our love, our grief, our longing, our joy, our beauty, our pain, our stillness, our many gifts and our hearts desires. We will take the threads of the directions that weave our way back to Her, and together enter the portal of Her Otherworld presence.
Come and join us on this journey, Come make pilgrimage to the Otherworld of Avalon and answer the call of the Crone Goddess.
For many are Her names and forms, and all of them are ancient.
The Crone Goddess
The Crone Goddess, perhaps the oldest and most revered of all Female forms of the Divine, is the primordial Ancient Mother of Earth, of all of Life, of Death and of the mysteries of Transformation.
As Crone-Bone Goddess, She might appear as frightening, but is the treasure-gateway of rebirth and empowerment if we are open to listen for-, and follow Her guidance. As Hag-Crone, She defies convention and surpasses limitations.
Her magic runs so deep, it sleeps in marrow and magma, yet rises in every breath, in every act of kindness, co-operation and compassion, to fly and touch the constellations, and whisper wisdom on the wind.
There are so many forms of the Crone Goddess in the world. She is loved by people in many different ways, in all lands and places, and we want to acknowledge that in the 2023 Goddess Conference.
She is the Reaper, the storekeeper of memory, the Great Comforter: Light in the dark.
She is Mistress of the mystery of death and rebirth, Mother of Scars and of Healing Hands.
She offers wise council, She laughs at confusion, She pierces illusion, She gathers the broken and nurtures authenticity.
She teaches by giving us fiercely challenging initiations and softest safe places of belonging.
Her cauldron of transformation brews the medicine of Love for us all.
Shape-shifting, She is Ancient One who sparkles with iridescent mirth and dances wildly, telling roaringly rude jokes.
She is Spirit Bird Woman of many different feathers, Fairy-Good-Mother who grants us our wishes, and Dark Mistress of the Night.
On our 2023 Goddess Conference wheel, the Crone is the Ancient One, the Grandmother, the ‘Wisdom beyond our years’ that resides within us all. Old silver head, She who opens Herself to let us pass through into the Otherworld where She will gently guide us to that which we need to find, retrieve, claim, release or see.
Our Lady of the Otherworld is a Wise Medicine Woman, many eons old, yet ageless. Goddess of the Wheel of time, Sister of the Circles of Nine, Goddess of the witches, Dark Mother, Stone and Bone Woman. Do not mistake Her as feeble. For She is powerful and unavoidable! She will appear to us at specific times, usually to test or guide, and always to initiate us into Her wisdom ways. The Crone Goddess comes to us to ask us for that which is ready to die within us, ready to be let go of in our life, ready to be changed. And ready or not, She will take what is Hers.
We find the echo of Her presence in so many of our European fairy tales, in which the Goddess mythologies and initiation wisdom of earlier times were hidden and preserved. For our Goddess Conference in 2023, She is in the wild wise ancient places that call our soul and make us step up and forward into the unknown to meet Her. She offers us the portal through which we may enter Her mysteries, Her realm of the Otherworld.
