Weekend Recap

Well, here it is, Tuesday, and I've not yet set down in words (keystrokes?) the weekend past. My, it was FULL. :-) Full of goddess women, goddess energy, goddess altars, discussions, feedback, all sorts of wondrous things. Saturday's evening circle was centered around reclaiming our "bitch" personas. When a man is aggressive or assertive or the like, he is "manly"...when a woman behaves similarly, she is called names. Why is that? Aask yourself, see what you come up with. You might be surprised. Anyways...back on topic... the Orisha we invited in was Oya, and we invited the Goddesses Kali, Medusa, Pele & Lilith. Earlier in the day, I presented an altar to Isis as I am attuned to her. Funny, did a random card pick on a website earlier today & got the Isis card. :-) After lunch, we got to hear the actual non-patriarchal stories, poetry, etc on several of the Goddesses, and personal stories relating to them as well...just an AWESOME reminder of who we are, as women, in today's society. Did some brainstorming as to what the world might be like had patriarchal religion ("churchianity") not taken root 2500 or so years ago. What would a matrifocal world consist of? Oh, the ideas!! In the beginning, women were acknowledged and revered as the spiritual keepers - pregnant women especially were enshrined, the gift of life being a sacred mystery. Every culture globally knew and accepted the loving rule of the goddesses. Today, that is not the case :-(
