Serpents & Dragons have always symbolised Hidden Wisdom, personal energy (Kundalini rising), sexuality, protection, fertility, Healing and transformation.
From Python the Dragon who guards Gaia the Earth Goddess, NagaPooshani the Hindu Snake Goddess who removes Dhoshas & curses, to Wadjet the Egyptian snake goddess who adorns the crowns of Pharos & deities, Minoan Snake Goddess of Knossos, Cernunnos Lord of the Beasts, Myths and religious stories are full of deities who wield serpent power!
This is a first in a series of workshops that introduce working with the new energies of 2016 and onwards, embracing change and facilitating self-transformation.
Topics covered / explored (tbc):
- Snake Goddesses
- Kundalini energy
- Fertility & Sexuality
- Sacred Dance
- Personal Transformation
There will be an opportunity to have contact with a real Colombian Rainbow Boa (snake) during this Introductory Workshop, as well as witness an example Fusion/ belly dance with snake (performed by Melanie). Workshop will culminate with a ritual invocation of serpent Goddess, brief oracular reading (akin to Priestess of Pythia), and a small snake-skin gift for your own personal work.

Further workshops will be aimed at exploring, healing,empowering and initiating transformations – in the realms of personal energies, Kundalini & sexuality.
