The Goddess Rocks is for women who are ready to step outside of the box of modern society, and into the sacred circle of community. When women gather, magic happens!

There will be regular themed gatherings where we’ll use various methods of connecting to the Sacred Feminine: movement, ecstatic dance, journeying, ceremonial work, full moon gatherings, etc.

Our world needs the power of the Sacred Feminine now more than ever. The Goddess within can rock our lives and reboot the world – care to join the revolution? ; )

Love Notes from the Heart of the Raven

Creating community around the Sacred Feminine… and relevance to women in the modern world (May 25, 2016)

Venus 2

Recently, I received a big surprise. Last week I had started up a Meetup group (Goddess Paths in Toronto) for exploring and engaging with the Sacred Feminine in community. I was expecting perhaps 12-15 people to join out of curiosity, and that only a few of those would attend events in the future. Much to my delight, 40 members have joined in the last week! There have already been a few reservations for events I have coming up this weekend, even with such short notice. This really does my heart good to see such an interest!

Since beginning my studies through the Glastonbury Goddess Temple a year and a half ago, I have been telling my teacher and fellow students that England and other areas of Europe seem far more resonant with the Divine Feminine than North America. There are permanent temples, pop-up temples, mystery schools and Goddess ceremonies galore. One of my sisters from the program just opened a public temple dedicated to Venus in Rome – the stronghold of Catholicism! I couldn’t be prouder of her!

But I began to despair that what I was learning would have limited avenues of expression back home. Yes, in Toronto and throughout North America, there are many people who have been involved with Goddess communities, pagan traditions, Wicca, witchcraft, etc. But it felt like this interest was limited to very specific groups and individuals, and it was as far from the mainstream as you could get. It feels like there’s a long way to go before the Goddess path is as known and accepted in the Western world as a spiritual system like Buddhism or yoga. But, from what I’ve seen, it’s already begun.

There are programs popping up like never before, as well as circles, seasonal celebrations, and workshops. When I was in university and for years after, it was very challenging to find either a teacher or a group to work with. To see more opportunities arising for people to experience the Feminine face of the Divine is something I was worried I would not see in my lifetime… So I’m feeling pretty pleased as punch at this moment. : )

My experience of the Sacred Feminine is the creative life force of the universe- lush, powerful and loving, and carrying the energy of healing, transformation and inspiration. Many of us have some kind of experience with Spirit, be it:
-some unseen and benevolent force, guiding and helping us through dreams, signs, synchronicity
– something powerful and bigger than us that comes through us in our creative self-expression
– something uplifting and healing that we experience through love, compassion and kindness

This ‘something’ can be experienced in many ways, but to experience it as the Sacred Feminine is so incredibly significant for women. Actively engaging with the Sacred Feminine has helped me and so many women:
– release a lot of baggage and negative energy from growing up in a world that has not been particularly supportive of women, or a feminine approach to life
– experience our feminine selves as beautiful, powerful and important in the world
– understand the sacred nature of sensuality, sexuality and embodiment, i.e. being fully present in our female bodies, and not rejecting any part of them for not being ‘perfect’ (ha!)

I believe most of us crave a lot more of this in our lives, and some long to taste it for the very first time. Are you thirsting for this kind of world as you read this? I surely am – I hope you’ll join me at a future event to experience this for yourself, whether it’s for the first time or the hundredth!

Fair warning: one taste may lead to another and another, until you find yourself drinking deep. Goddess energy is an intoxicating elixir, and it will change you!
Side effects include:
– powerful, inspiring thoughts and ideas leading you to something new and exciting in your life
– speaking and living your truth
– feelings of beauty, enchantment and sacred, sensual embodiment
– fierce optimistic devotion to your life and your truest self

The first 2 events are happening this week- On Friday May 27 there will be a Goddess Circle, and on Sunday May 29 I’m very pleased to be presenting a Celebration of the Sacred Feminine known as the Festival of Bast. Please check out event details on my News and Events page. You can also find me on Facebook (Raven Heart Healing Arts) and Meetup.com (Goddess Paths in Toronto). Hope to see you there, Goddesses!

The Birth of Raven Heart Healing Arts (Oct 6, 2014)

Hi everyone,

I’m very happy & excited to be starting up my healing practice at long last! I combine various healing arts that I’ve learned (Reiki, Sekhem & shamanic healing) into a unique and powerful healing system.

I also plan to teach workshops in different topics: Reiki, seeing faeries, dream work, working with spirit guides, and different aspects of the pagan arts (for seekers who are interested in the Goddess, faerie craft, and so much more) . I also feel that ongoing groups can be the best way to learn and have support as you heal & grow, so I plan to offer this as well.

The world is changing, because it needs to change – people are opening up to new possibilities and ideas, like never before. I’m excited to be a part of that change in any way I can. I look forward to sharing what I know about the world of healing and transformation – and it’s a hell of a ride. ; )

Hugs & blessings,

Evdokia LaFey
