Dancing with the Goddess
August 25-28th 2022
In honoring the feminine, our vision is to create a time for transformation and a space for fun, healing, and rejoicing in our womanhood through Earth-honoring traditions, ceremonies and teachings. We are a multi-generational circle of women dedicated to walking gently on the earth and providing a safe, supportive, and sacred environment for growth.
Oh, the seduction of
Dancing with the Goddess~
imagining can be so colorful~
Yet, reality of the dance can be groundbreaking, painful
Painful like when you first walk
your tender winter feet on the granite rock
Painful like the first cramps of the beginning of your womanhood
The Dance can stir awe, worry, uncertainty and simultaneously
stir magnetism, passion and attachment
Even, laying completely still
My warm back on the cool spring earth
I watch the night sky
Dancing, stars, shooting across the sky
Planets, following step by step,
The dance they’ve done for our brief
The dichotomy is the singularity
My breath, simply in and out, keep my consciousness ANCHORED in my body
The dance is so simple
And so difficult to remember
We all lay our backs
seeing the swirls in the starry night sky
We dance, in every darkness,
With Kali, with Ursa Minor and Major
We breath the same patterns and the same air, we bear the scars
As has EVERY being on the Earth
Sharing the Earth plane, resources
Dancing with Pachamama
Looking outward to the milky way for guidance
And being yanked back into the body…
Just this one breath…
this ONE warm breath ?
THIS is all we’ve EVER had.
Well, that was our imagination all along
The Dance with EVERY Goddess is always now… only now
And will forever be

“Join us on Trout Pond for a weekend of sacred ceremonies,
fun teachings and gentle friendship…”
For the last 33 years the council girls in Maine (and travelers from lands beyond) have gone together to camp every August. Over the years there were different camps, and now for the last many years the Maine Council of Women have found a home at Camp Susan Curtis in Stoneham, Maine.
If you’ve come to Council before you know this rural camp has the most amazing private lake and surrounding land, with a lovely sandy beach on Trout Pond. It’s completely quiet here. (Except for our laughter and excitement which overflows the land, and the lake and the o-so blue sky.)
