July Goddess Gathering: ATHENA

July Goddess: ATHENA
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply
gives you courage.” ― Lao Tzu

Join us for our monthly gathering of the Goddesses for an evening of festivity and celebration of the divine feminine. These events are always guided by the Goddess we invoke and this evening we will be communing with Athena, the Grecian Goddess of Wisdom and War.

Athena is a force to be reckoned with, strong, wise and capable, helping us to choose wisely when to take a stand. Yet, this façade of strength can often create a well of loneliness within her soul. Athena-inspired women know no fear, or at least that's the face they present to the world. Rest assured, Athena;s can be tough, independent, clever and resourceful women. However, the soul call, now that the skills of strength and wisdom have been honed, is to go back and take adventure in the exploration of her weaknesses. For it is often in her very “weaknesses” that the seeds of her true greatness lies dormant. Athena needs to learn how to trust her incredible strength, enough to become truly vulnerable. For in fact, it takes great strength to reveal such tenderness. And it is this display of tenderness that will balance her outer shell of perfection and bring her into her own.

Athena is truly the last step for the Goddess becoming in each of us. She has proven that she can succeed. She has the strength, the wisdom and the courage.  Now all she has to do is trust it and let go! Dare to fail! Dare to feel foolish! Dare to make a mistake! Understand that mistakes are actually a part of every creation and are always a pivotal point to even more successful outcomes. Athena reminds us to open up to our softer side. She reminds to kick-butt and take names.....WITH LOVE. She wants us to know that we are creator Goddesses and that we are the embodiment of the divine feminine!

Come and celebrate being a woman. Dress as befitting a Goddess. Working with the energy of the Divine Feminine is a powerful way to bring great powers of love into your life. Discover who you really are...
