The Golden Lady Priestess Queen Lineage in Herstory
- Nikoletta Pozsgai
From the era of the Ordos Empire to the Saka-Sarmatian-Scythian-Hun tribes a plethora of Asian and Eastern European artefact has been researched and in the talk a collection of which will be presented to follow up the Golden Lady Priestess Queen lineage. The queen and leader of the tribe, The Golden Lady, was the wisest, the most able and gifted from the so-called Blessed Women (Rima). All the blessed women got their training in priestessing, healing, were shamankas and were all warriors – in the skies and in the physical when that was needed. Later on the Patriarchal Greek called them ruthless warriors, the Amazons. How much more they were than that. The unearthed Golden Treasures of the Carpathian Basin, Sub Ural and further Asian regions will speak up for the tribal queens in our herstory who apart from being skillful warrioresses were priestesses and wise leaders of their tribes. Let them tell their stories of the real strengths, skills, life-centered wisdom of the feminine through changing times. Let them tell their message of feminine leadership: we are their daughters who are to step into our very own powers, awaken our priestess, warrior and queen archetypes to protect the flame of life and create our path to a MotherWorld based new Golden Age. A legacy. Our legacy to take over.
A Journey that reaches from the Weaver Goddesses myths to the motives woven on to the Anatolian Kilims
- Gülçin Önel (Mavi’nin Sesi)
If we will be talking about a Star Queen, for me that would be the Weaving Goddess spinning her spindle in her place above the stars. The threads that are tied to one another, foreseeing where the threat that will be knotted in the next step and within the bigger picture; all of these processes tells us the story of why weaving has been attributed to the feminine energy all this time. The process which begins with a knot, a thread takes use from mother and baby to weaving the knots that are established in a relationship. From a cultural and mythological perspective, we see that Weaving always happens in the hands of a woman. The webs woven are many and their material equivalents are rugs, carpets, knits, knots, lace and much more. That is why first and foremost I will go into the roots of the Weaver Archetype, talking about its mythological counterparts mentioning the Weaving Goddess of the Sumerian Cult, Utta in Anatolia. I will explain how the symbols carried on from the Weaving Goddesses to our day were woven on rugs(kilims) and the fact that rugs(kilims) actually tell us a story of many facets I will explain over the Goddess Symbols on rugs(kilims) from Anatolia. Remembering the Weaver inside us will remind us that we are the ones weaving the fabric of life each day with what we have in hand.

Venus - Bright Queen of Heaven
- Annabel Du Boulay
Named ‘Bright Queen of Heaven’ by the Babylonians in 1600BC, the planet Venus, the third brightest object in the sky at maximum elongation after the Sun and Moon, is also known as the Morning and Evening Star. The 8 Year Cycle of Venus inspired not only the Rose Lineage mythos as far back as Ancient Mesopotamia in 3500BC, with the Myth of the Descent of Inanna and her rebirth as Queen of Heaven being founded on its 19-month synodic period of 7 waning moon and 7 waxing moon conjunctions, but archaeological evidence also reveals that the Cycle of Venus was followed by the Neolithic and Celtic tribes of Britain and Ireland. In this presentation, I’ll be exploring the influence of Venus on the ancient tribes of the Rose and Celtic Lineages, and her archetypal embodiment as ‘Bright Queen of Heaven’.
Temple Dance Along by Sophia Paola Blanton

Prayerformance Move-Along: “Catch a Star – the Magic of Gesture & Intent” Since time immemorial, the celestial bodies have fascinated and inspired us. The upward glance is the embodiment of hope, discovery and the soul’s higher purpose. In Isadora Duncan’s repertory, a core movement is the gesture of “capturing a star and bringing it down to Earth”. In Prayerformance, we add sacred intent to this simple gesture and perform it to inspiring music. Symbolizing the cycle of manifestation, we express our dream and its pathway into manifestation.

Embodied Mythology ~ Rooted in the Living Goddess
- Chameli Ardagh
The doors of Goddess mythology invite you in to the living landscape of your body. You are yourself a living, breathing myth, a ceremony unfurling and evolving. You carry memories and visions in your bones, in your heart and hips, which have never forgotten, never for a moment dropped the thread of your part in the greater story. Myth initiates you into web consciousness, where past, present and future weave into each other in cyclic correspondence; where the eternal story of evolution unfolds. Here you remember your belonging. You remember that your life is part of a continuum, a story vast as the universe, yet anchored in a breathtaking simplicity, here and now. Through storytelling, reflection and embodied practice, we will activate a fundamental restoration of our “web consciousness,” learning to see with “mythical eyes” and restoring our place as wisdom keepers in the Great Story of the Living Goddess.
Queen Guinevere and a Journey to the Stars - A Crowning Ceremony
- Jennifer Sundeen
Since time immemorial, Goddess was the epicenter of human life. Long before recorded history, the Great Mother reigned over three realms: As the unseen mysteries and wisdom of the Innerworld, as the sacred body of the Earth, and as the celestial light of the Heavens. The ancient rite of the crowned King marrying the Goddess Queen is testimony to this reverence, which has been passed down to us through the ages in poetry, music, song, dance, storytelling, and in the traditions of the seasonal turning of the wheel. Over the past few millennia, these myths and legends of the Goddess have been banished to the shadows and replaced by Patriarchal representations of the masculine through stories of gods, kings, heroes, warriors and knights. Yet all is not lost, for as we sift through the layers of both ancient and modern literature, an older Truth emerges: The Great Mother has never left us, and we see her underneath the surface, alive and ever-present. Through this lens, the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table unveils Queen Guinevere in her enduring role as Sovereign of the Realms. The archetype of Guinevere the Wise Woman reawakens our inner mysteries of healer, priestess, protector and lover. Guinevere as Sovereign Queen reminds us to take care of our sacred Earth-bodies. Guinevere Queen of the Heavens places a crown of STARS upon our heads, a symbol of the divine light that dances in all things manifest, and of our sacred connection to that light. It is imperative that we revive the Matriarch and rewrite HERstory. Join us for this ninety-minute on-line Queen Guinevere Celebration. Allow Her to guide us in discovering ~ and Crowning ~ ourselves as Sovereign Goddess of the Inner Mysteries, of the sacred Earth-body, and as Heavenly Queen of the Stars. Our time together will include: - An exploration of the myths and legends of Queen Guinevere as the Triple Goddess - A movement/invocation to reawaken the Great Mother energies on our planet - A guided journey to meet the Sovereign Queen within ourselves - Altar-work for creating sacred connection - Rituals and for nourishing, protecting and empowering our Inner and Outer Realms - A community Crowning ceremony
