Tressy Driver


Tressy Driver is a Priestess of Avalon who has been active in some form at the Goddess Conference since 2009, as Melissa, participant, workshop holder, and circle priestess. She is passionate about carrying Avalon and Goddess out into the mainstream world, and is one of the weavers of the Goddess Temple of Oxford, together with Anneli Lähdetär.


In addition she’s a devoted feminist, works with women who’ve experienced sexual violence, and dabbles in painting and writing. She loves dreaming as a sacred activity, exploring that magical state between meditation and dreaming in which all boundaries fall away and deep truths are revealed.



Dreaming with the Otherworld Crone

Tressy Driver, Kia Kotsanis, Anneli Lähdetär

In ancient times, tribal shamankas and shamans used dream states to hear the messages of the Gods. Between sleeping and dreaming emerge the states of dreaming and liminal trance – these are potent magical times in which we are close to the Otherworld. Without our conscious rational mind interfering, we are sensitive and more open to divine inspiration.

You will spend a full night Sacred Dreaming in a dedicated space, held by Dream Priestesses. Let yourself relax into the Goddess’s arms, and hear the messages She whispers to you.

We will prepare for our journey with a sharing circle, Dream Goddess stories, and a sacred sound journey, preparing you to meet Goddess while traveling through the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds. Near midnight, you will be guided into a deep meditative state, which will phase into sacred dreaming.

Dream Priestesses will hold the sacred space throughout the night, weaving the Dreaming Temple in which you will receive your messages and blessings. In the morning, a guided journey will help you reconnect with the essence of your dreams, and you will have time to reflect and journal, before we share breakfast and talk about our experiences.

Please bring food to share for breakfast, a journal and pen, an item for the Dream Altar, comfortable clothes to sleep in, something to lie on and under (sheepskins, blankets, and cushions will be present in the space), any medication and toiletries you need. There are a kitchen and limited washing facilities available.
