Who is the Goddess?


 

 

Goddess is the feminine principle of the divine. All energy in the realms of duality are masculine and feminine. This is reflected all around us as sun and moon, day and night, outer and inner. This is not male or female, as in gender, but rather qualities of energy we all carry within us. We all have inner masculine and feminine. In ancient times our ancestors lived close to the earth and in harmony with the rhythms of nature.  Across many landscapes far and wide, they experienced the solar as the emanation of masculine energy and the lunar as feminine energy. Examples of this are men expressing their energy actively and outwardly as warriors or hunter-gatherers and women’s menstrual cycles being aligned with the cycles of the moon.

Before the advent of artificial light, women in community cycled together, bleeding at the time of the new moon. Many cultures related to Father as heaven or sky and Mother as the earth. Ancient Kings pledged allegiance to the feminine spirit of nature so that they might rule in harmony with the earth, receiving Her blessings and fertility. Many expressions of reverence were given to the Mother and Father of all life in different manifestations throughout different lands and cultures. Women were respected as they embodied the life-giving qualities of Mother Nature Herself. 

As time moved further into civilization based on class and ownership of property, the desire for hierarchical power over and domination — as opposed to shared power in harmony with the earth and cycles of life — took hold. Distorted religious teachings that denied and removed the feminine aspect of the divine were responsible for war, inquisition, and suppression of individuals who desired to worship outside of limited dogmatic doctrine. Men in power did not want to share with women and the view of women as lesser became more widespread. Equally as devastating, feminine values such as care-giving, nurturing, emotional expression, compassion, and intuition were seen as inferior. Men suffered from this too as they were shunned for demonstrating their feelings which profoundly wounded the expression of the collective masculine. These forces and teachings are still very much alive and at work in our world. 

This is relevant today as these memories live within the collective unconscious. Whether it is recent or an echo of the distant past, most of us fear being seen, of speaking our truth, of not being safe, feeling we are unworthy, or allowing ourselves to be who we are. Perhaps we feel there is more than what we have been taught by society yet we don’t know what or how to experience that. 

Remembering our ancient selves is not only relevant, it is crucial in these modern times. We desperately need to remember our connection with the earth, Her cycles and seasons, and all that she provides for us. Mother Earth is the great sustainer of ALL OF LIFE. If half the people on this planet began to treat the earth with compassion and respect, I truly believe everything would change! 

The Goddess can be experienced and expressed in all of our lives, regardless of gender, cultural heritage, or religious upbringing. The Goddess is the Mother of all of life who loves us unconditionally. 

My intention is to open a doorway so that you may experience your own divine nature, connection to your ancestors, awakening of your ancient self, the timeless wisdom of your soul, enhanced creative expression, embodiment, wholeness, self-love, and permission to be who you are. Thank you for being here.

Blessed Be!

Going on a retreat led by Taylor is going into the most beautiful parts of your divine being and giving them permission to be seen, heard, and loved. Let me change the word retreat to pilgrimage, because that’s what her retreats are. She holds the deep space for you to walk your way back home. To experience a love so deep that your life’s bar has been raised to match that love. She knows how to lead women. Hold women. Celebrate women. Create a safe space for women to unearth, to forgive, to release, and to surrender into the land and into the Goddess. My experience in Avalon and the magic places we traveled while together has been the greatest gift I have ever received. I connected into a sisterhood that can never be broken and the richness in my life is immeasurable.

Thank you again for the beautiful fertility workshop you shared with us, I have carried and integrated many currents that arose from your teachings into my life and daily meditations/honorings since returning and it feels wonderful. I’m really tuning into, honoring, and moving from that womb space in a way that I had never really been introduced to before. So thank you!!
— Erin Dougherty
Taylor’s retreats are transformational. Not only did I feel myself open and deepen to the magic of the land and the countless tea ceremonies and rituals that she guided us through, but also witnessed my fellow travelers shift in profound ways. Each day is a treasure of ritual, adventure, discovery and laughter, lot of laughter. I am grateful beyond words that Taylor crafted this heart opening retreat as a way to share her knowledge and connection with Avalon. I can’t recommend it enough. If you are curious about discovering the goddess within, and long to journey with a magical priestess as your guide, then you are in the right place. It’s pure bliss.

Taylor is a true gifted healer. I know this because being in her presence is healing. And you will know what I mean when you experience her at hello. My sessions with Taylor have brought forward deep healing every time. She is very intentional and intuitive which makes me feel protected and safe to open myself up to her. She truly embodies the maternal archetype with her clear understanding, gentle nurturing touch, and loving compassionate heart. Her wisdom into the realms of birthing, ancient teachings of spiritual truths, and sacred feminine inspires me to feel whole, present, and grounded in who I AM and as a woman. I very highly recommend working with Taylor if you feel inspired to awaken and make significant transformations toward the Light.
