Women’s Spiral Dance – A Multi-Cultural Celebration of Our Beloved Ancestors and Crones
September 26, 2011 in Uncategorized
We welcome all women and girls to join us for the Daughters of the Goddess Annual Spiral Dance on Friday, October 28, 2011, at the Orinda Masonic Temple, 9 Altarinda Rd. in Orinda, CA. The Marketplace with beautiful goods and services for sale will open at 6:30 and the ritual will begin at 7:30. The ritual will be led by Daughters of the Goddess High Priestess Leilani. The ticket cost is $23.00 if paid in advance by October 24th, or $29.00 if paid at the door. Student and Crone discounts are available. Please bring your drums and rattles, as well as pictures of your loved ones who have passed on for our Ancestor altar!
The veil is thin and once again women come together on this cool Fall night to celebrate those who have crossed over to the other side. We honor and offer reverence to all of those who have passed before us. Pictures of loved ones and those who have influenced our lives cover the walls and the altars. Each woman comes up for her own sacred communion with the dead. Some women’s grief is fresh and obvious while others have moved to a place of celebrating the lives of those gone from this world. As Sisters, we hold, honor and celebrate each woman’s journey. We dance the Spiral Dance to once again remember the cycle of life and celebrate together in sisterhood.
Established on the Summer Solstice in 1996 by High Priestess and Kahuna Leilani Birely, Daughters of the Goddess is a Dianic Temple and community that is dedicated in the Spirit of Aloha to the preservation, perpetuation, and promotion of multicultural Goddess culture, public ceremony, ritual, and Women’s Mysteries. Of European and Hawaiian heritage, Leilani holds a Master’s Degree in Feminist Spirituality from New College in San Francisco and dances hula with Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu.
We look forward to celebrating and dancing with you! She of Ten Thousand Names welcomes you with open arms on this day of magic and reverence!
