First Spiral

Daughter/Son of Mother Earth

Awakening into Her Presence, Love and Wisdom

Start Date 17th – 19th September 2021

Covid restrictions and Glastonbury Goddess Temple Teachings

This training will begin in person if Covid restrictions allow, but may begin online if this is not possible. The Training will move to in person in Glastonbury as soon as possible. You will be informed before the training begins which option is taking place.

The first spiral is about remembering our relationship with Mother Earth and Her nature and rhythms. How to find our deep connection, gratitude, love and our own rhythm with Her. As we heal and remember, we can begin to feel ourselves being from Her, a part of Her and all our natural surroundings. We learn how to fill ourselves with the light of our soul and root our spirit into Her bringing in Her love, wisdom, presence, holding and energies of each of Her seasons. With Her we grow, receive nourishment and create being the fullest expression of ourselves. We serve Her and all of life by being sovereign and true to ourselves whilst being rooted and connected to Mother Earth. We will experience the main elements and seasons here in Avalon and the surrounding natural beauty and environment. You will also be encouraged to connect deeply with your land where you live and the energies of it. We are encouraged to have fun and commune with Her in Her nature and learn how to grow, nurture and care for plants/herbs a long side caring for ourselves with the energy of the seasons.

When we remember that we are Her children, we begin to see ourselves differently in relationship with Her. We see ourselves not only from but of earth, not just visitors. First Peoples of earth carry this earth wisdom and we can also gain a greater understanding of our connection and interdependence with all of life here on earth.

Aspects of Mother Earth

In this First spiral training you are invited to deepen your relationship with Mother Earth and to access earth wisdom which has been forgotten due to seeing ourselves as separate to Her and forgetting her natural patterns rhythms and our connection with that through our own rhythms. This is an offering to dance on Her land, embrace Her trees, immerse in Her waters, breath in Her air more deeply, let go in Her caves, feel Her presence in all Her embodiments including ourselves and to heal our relationship with Her and remember how to nurture the earth and be nurtured whilst growing gratitude for all that She gives. We accept the invitation to awaken into Her presence, love and wisdom by experiencing throughout Her seasons for ourselves. Guest speakers will be invited every weekend accept dedication to share their expertise and service of Mother Earth, such as activists, healers and teachers.
