Symbols of the Sacred Feminine
A Workshop with Deb Swingholm
There was a time – not so long ago – when humans saw the Divine as a woman. A wise, protective, nourishing Goddess. All around the world she was honored and today her symbols remain. They are consistent. Recognizable. Powerful and magical.
These symbols form a sacred vocabulary that evokes plants, animals, creation, transformation and all the cycles of the Earth. Goddess symbols appear in Renaisance paintings, gothic cathedrals and stone grottos. They show up in folk art like weaving, handmade carpets, basket-making, pottery and other women’s crafts.
In this workshop, you’ll get to know some of these symbols and find out how they were used. Then you’ll work with them to create a keepsake to take home.
This ancient imagery will…
- connect you more deeply with the natural world
- add layers of meaning to your favorite fairy tales and myths
- help you see the Goddess as she appears in various forms
- activate your creativity in new ways
