Re-Membering the Divine Feminine

Dr. MaryCatherine Burgess

March 3

Meeting Room, Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria Terrace, Edinburgh.
Registration: 9.30am-10am. Day Workshop: 10am-4pm.
20/15 (Concessions). 10 (Students).


This experiential workshop will provide opportunities for both female and male participants to help create a sense of community as they draw upon myth and mythological figures to re-member and call forth potent Divine Feminine qualities they consider important for healing in their own lives and in the world. The day will bring a sharing of ritual, song, dance, story and fun. Participants are welcome to bring a small object sacred to them; a drum, rattle, or other small instrument; and/or an item of clothing they find special for ceremony.

In her approach to the Divine Feminine, MaryCatherine Burgess incorporates her extensive experience in group facilitation, retreat work, feminist spirituality, psychodrama, Shamanism and Shamanic healing, music, and co-creation of rituals using expressive arts. She currently works as Associate Chaplain at the University of Edinburgh - focusing particularly on spirituality and multifaith. MaryCatherine has a PhD in Religious Studies and masters degrees in Religious Education, Human Relations, and Celtic and Scottish Studies. Her book, A New Paradigm of Spirituality and Religion, will be published by Continuum in April.
