                                             A Timeless Journey to the Mother

Long long ago our ancestors fashioned sacred images of the Great Mother Goddess. Their hands shaped Her ample form, a symbol of abundance, protection and security. She was the deity worshipped around the world, before history, before civilization, before cities, before Gods, and Shaman, before all others, we honored Her, the ancient, the eternal, the indominable, bountiful, Goddess Mother of All Life.


 



Ancient caves are filled with images and symbols of the Ancient Goddess. Painted and carved caves have been found throughout France, Italy, Africa, Spain, Mexico, Australia, Yugoslavia, Switzerland, Russia, the Middle East, Greece, and Asia. Each year, more caves emerge from the long forgotten darkness of obscurity, revealing their ancient splendors.  More ancient sites are being discovered all the time. 





Ancient Mother
Miracle bringer of birth
Bringer of food and shelter
Ancient One who is All

Guide us to remember
Help us to be truly human
Teach us to stand in Awe of life
To honor the miracle of it all

We hear you in the wind
We feel you in the rain and mist
We see you in a flame's flickering light
Let us build your Grotto in our hearts


)



     In coming to honor the Ancient Goddess, we honor our own common human heritage. As we move into the future, we must fully understand that we are all of one origin, one family, one race, the human race. The commonality of our ancestors' beliefs and rituals for living, hunting, worshipping give us powerful clues to the universality of the human spirit. Long before there were idealogical divisions, there were shared beliefs and symbols.

      The power of the Great Mother was alive in the ancient human heart. They saw Her in the world around them. She was both benevolent and fierce, honored and feared. Life for humans has always been challenging, and it still is today. We no longer fear the cave bear, the dangers we fear are often not those posed by wild nature, but those posed by civilization.

                      





It is in reclaiming a reverence for Nature and our common human symbols that we

will reclaim the sanity within our own culture. The Ancient Goddess will show us

the way, all we need to do is listen for Her in the wind, the rain, and the stillness of

Nature.  The Goddess lives in the forests, the desserts, the mountains, the ocean,

the rivers, the marshes, the cities, the plains, and the fields. Listen......She is speaking.

The miracles that are Nature and the ancient human experience are celebrated here in the context of our Human context to the worship and reverence for the Great Goddess and other indigenous Goddesses.  We all view the world through the filters of our own belief systems,, it is hoped that the Spiral Goddess Grove will provide a different approach to looking at the history you once learned through filters that did not honor the Goddess or the scredness of Nature..
