Presentation 1: Images of Goddess from Ancient Times to the Present Day
An introduction to some of the many thousands of Goddess figurines and images created by our Goddess-loving ancestors across Europe and Asia from the earliest times. Of all the figurines found by archaeologists 99% are female images. Why is this and what does it tell us about the beliefs and understanding of your ancestors about the Source of all Life? How do these ancient images connect to our ideas about Goddess in the present day?

Presentation 3: Goddess in the Sacred Landscape of Glastonbury Avalon
The Isle of Avalon is the Sacred and Ever Present Land of Goddess. The small country town of Glastonbury in Somerset, England is a gateway to that enchanted land, the Isle of Avalon.

Presentation 4: Bringing MotherWorld into Being
MotherWorld is the society which places Mother Earth, mothers and the values of mothering and caring in the centre of our lives. In these changing times everyone is recognising the importance of all those who care for other people, who give of themselves, for the good of others. We have a powerful opportunity now to not return to the old ‘normal’ ways of living, but to change how we do everything as individuals and as communities. This presentation is about the future we can create together.
