–Using the imaginative and creative resources of ecstatic matrix to kindle the indomitable and intuitive part of women, is one of the main characteristics of this path of the Sacred Feminine. By opening the doors onto these potentials we may obtain, first of all, new means of communicating with the natural world, and thus harmonize our body cycles and sexuality. We can bring, as Mary Daly put it, acts of Outrageous, Contagious Courage into our life and the world, applying the just measure of assertiveness, centering and compassion.
Most of our meetings focus on the Animals that have been aiding potent expressions of the Mistress of the Universe for thousands of years.
However we may chose to call and invoke Her now, be it as Mother of Life, Goddess, or Primordial Ancestress, She has often been depicted and imagined as the Lady of the Animals, her body half woman and half animal, or else in human shape surrounded by animals. Our own vision of the human goes back to such images, which are amongst the most ancient we know of. Furthermore, these images continue to reveal essential functions of Sacred Feminine shamanism.
The basic seminars are SIX and are collected in a training divided into two cycles of annual duration: the RED cycle and the BLACK cycle. The two colors refer to the two aspects of the Goddess, Red as Life Giver and Black as Dark and Regenerating Mother. You can start indifferently with one of the two. The completion of the two cycles gives access to the advanced and intensive seminars.
The RED cycle will be take place in Padova from September 2020. It includes the seminar on the Ancestress, which is the root of the practices of Sacred Feminine shamanism, the one on the Bear focused on the theme of healing and protection and the seminar on the Fox, burlesque and disruptive energy that brings us closer to the theme of sexuality and death.

To participate, bring your drum or rattle. The instrument should be your own, and not lent by anybody else. If you don’t have a drum yet, it is advisable to consult Morena for advice and indications, in order to take one suitable for the proposed practices. A detailed list of further required equipment will be promptly furnished before each seminar.To better understand the path we recommend reading the sections of the site Ritual Art, Sacred Feminine Shamanism and Drum.
Each year will include three basic seminars (3 weekends), a dedicated Facebook group to exchange experiences and research, a Zoom meeting with the teacher on a bimonthly basis, another one-day seminar dedicated to review and feedback.
