Discover the secrets of goddess-worshiping women as we trace their patterns and the remnants of their lives at the Ancient Artemis Temple & School at Vravrona, the Acropolis of Athena and the Sacred Sanctuary of Elefsina, home of the Eleusian Mysteries.
See the ruins and artifacts accompanied by an herbalist and goddess-scholar guide, enjoy delicious, healthy meals by the sea and bring home some of the powerful tools that women in Greece have used for healing and strength since ancient times.
The tour is led by Greek-American herbalist Rachel Thomas, long-time resident of Costa Rica, who specialises in the relationship between cultural conservation, plants, spirituality, nature and survival, supported by professor of Psychology Carmen Ivakovich as co-hostess and spiritual navigator, offering private counseling, group ceremony, warmth, emotional support and traditional space-creating as an elder.
We will also enjoy a day with Goddess scholar and researcher of Women’s Ritual Dances Laura Shannon, who will introduce us to the magical movements of Greek women’s circle dances and their roots in the ancient Goddess cultures of Old Europe, and the symbols of the Goddess hidden by women in their costumes, songs, and even cooking!
