Healing the Burning Times
The European Witch Hunts of 1450-1750, or the Burning Times as they have become known, is the history lesson we were never taught at school but should have been! Through extensive research into what happened and why, and a journey into ancestral healing, Cali discovered that so many of her own wounds were rooted in the lives of her Witch Ancestors. In her talk she shares how this exploration took her on a 13 moon pilgrimage around the UK and Ireland, gathering women in ceremony each full moon, and tells the story of this piece of our history which led to one of the deepest wounds in the psyche of women. Our Witch ancestors may be dead but they live on inside of us. And through us, the witch hunts continue! Understanding our past holds the key to unlocking our the Burning Woman of the Future! It’s time to set ourselves free!

Finding your Sweet Spot: Where Food, Faith and the Feminine Collide
What do a disordered relationship with food, a conservative religious upbringing, and a typical ‘workaholic’ lifestyle have to do with each other? Kendra weaves together her story of all three. Growing up as a straight-A student and a high-performing athlete in a conservative religious community, the seeds were planted for a huge dependency on controlling mechanisms in order to achieve physical and spiritual perfection. She developed an eating disorder, which of course was the opposite of perfection; a failure on so many levels. As she found her way out of a chaotic relationship with food and shameful relationship with her body, she began to connect with herself and the world in a way that was never taught in Sunday school. She was hooked. Her continued exploration helped her realise that the same drivers that led to an eating disorder were also driving the bus in her relationship and business; and that ironically, the way to avoid disaster there included embodying her feminine self. And of course, this reclamation takes place in the part of her that was once so heavily shamed and punished; her body.

The Fall of the Divine Feminine, how we came to believe we are less than we are
Kathleen discusses the origins we have forgotten through race amnesia of the Divine Feminine’s fall into the belief that we are less than we are. Why do we berate ourselves with labels of unworthy, and not good enough, where did those labels begin? Why do we allow destructive undermining behaviour and a patriarchal society to have become the norm? What happened to our connection to our wisdom, to our planet, to each other and the Goddess within to create the dynamic of suppression? This collective wound of the Divine Feminine, through the pains of intergenerational inherited patterning is coming to the surface and to be able to heal it personally, communally, planetary and universally we must have the courage to face the origins of our wounds, to stop the patterns repeating for the generations to come. We stand as the gateway to the future and in our hands is the responsibility for the next seven generations and beyond.
