In Goddess religion death is not feared, but is understood to be a part of life, followed by birth and renewal.

Join Amy Wright Glenn for the launch of the Institute’s new Goddess Study Group.
Each 6-hour Goddess Study Group session is 4-weeks long.
Participants can join for one or all three sessions.
The goddesses chosen for our study are uniquely positioned in their respective traditions/cultures to represent the liminal spaces of being. Participants will study and reflect upon their significance in terms of culture, myth, and psychology regarding birth, breath, and death.
Drawing upon her work as a scholar of comparative world religions, her travels in India, as well as her study and practice of yoga ~ Amy is uniquely positioned to introduce a new series of Goddess Study to the Institute.
We begin with Kali.
Kal means time. Kali represents the power of the divine feminine that cuts through the illusions of time, change, attachment, fear, and anxiety. Kali is the fierce mother ~ not less compassionate than other manifestations of goddess energy ~ and the study of Kali challenges so many of our assumptions about femininity, divinity, beauty, and purity.
What can the study of Kali reveal to you about your understanding of time, death, birth, fear, and faith?
All are welcome to join Amy for this 6-hour (per session) study.
Open to participants of all genders and faiths.
