Des Moines, Iowa
Sisters of the Goddess, started Ostara 1998, is an eclectic group of spiritual women, based in Des Moines in central Iowa. Most of us follow earth-based religions or pagan paths, but other members are Christian, atheist or members of other world religions. We welcome new women to our events and to our planning meetings. Please join us; magic is afoot!
All women are invited to come celebrate the wild season with the Sisters! We will meet at Kate’s (if you don’t know where that is, please contact us through this page and we’ll get you directions). If the weather is nice, we’ll be outside, so dress appropriately. We will call in the ancestors, and do some on-the-spot scrying (folk-divination). There is no need to prepare except to come in the right frame of mind for sacred space, and there is no need to bring anything. After the ritual we will go to a nearby restaurant to celebrate together. Each person is responsible for her own check. If you have any questions, please contact us through this page or call 515-661-7063. Happy Hallows!
Whether you are a long-time community member of Sisters of the Goddess, or someone who is just discovering Goddess spirituality for the first time, this retreat will have something for you. All women are welcome! The weekend will feature workshops on the four elements - Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, as well as discussions that will help you explore the different facets of our rich and ever-evolving practices and traditions. On Saturday afternoon we will have a self-care activity involving facials and other spa treatments, and on Saturday evening we will have an Imbolc devotional ritual which will be an opportunity for you to devote yourself to whatever path or goal you choose for the year.
