The Goddess Study Centre has been set up to celebrate the return of the Goddess to human consciousness at the beginning of the 3rd millennium.
The Goddess takes many forms and is known as 'Goddess of Ten Thousand Names'. Most importantly She represents the wholeness of life, the connections between all life forms, and the legitimacy and value of all beings. Understanding and acknowledging the Goddess in our lives today enables us to build the foundation of a joyous culture for future generations.
The Goddess Study Centre is an educational resource dedicated to women’s culture. It has material on: indigenous cultures, Goddess traditions, women’s art, Feminism, issue based material, women writers, women’s history, and women’s language. If you have any books or other publications on these topics that you would like to donate to the Goddess Study Centre, then please contact me.
At the moment the Centre offers a small range of day & weekend workshops, participation at the Hearth of Sulis & Nemetona, and occasional events.
The Hearth of the Goddess Study Centre is dedicated to Sulis & Nemetona. It is the focus of daily devotional work, meditation, and seasonal rites. In Heide Goettner-Abendroth's book, Matriarchal Societies, the Hearth is tended by the Priestess, or by the Hearthwoman. It is the sacred centre where women meet - and for the Goddess Study Centre, it is a Creative Hearth, inspiring the Arts.
