Let your powerful, beautiful, and wise female soul
to emerge and blossom!
Embody your Femininity
Groups for Women
As women in our everyday life we embody a wide spectrum of roles, from the more traditional ones of the wife, mother, and daughter to the more independent, self-sufficient and alchemical models of leaders, activists, artists and healers. Some of these expressions are more familiar and comfortable to us, and some we struggle to fulfill the best we can.
This is a series of seven, 3h each, experiential workshops for women, in which we explore together, recover and celebrate the spectrum of our female identity. Women have traits that are colorful, multifaceted, strong and vulnerable, just like the rainbow qualities that we can find in the archetypes of the Greek Goddesses.
We use Greek myths, Authentic Movement explorations and Expressive Art activities to invoke the qualities of the powerful archetypes of the Greek goddesses in our embodied presence and gain insights to become a better “heroine” in your own life story.
As Jean Shinoda Bolen describes in her book “Goddesses in Every Woman”, the inner archetypes of the Greek goddesses can reveal intimate truths about ourselves. These archetypes are powerful inner patterns, forces within that influence what we do and how we feel. When we are able to understand them, we gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness.
Each workshop is independent and dedicated to one of the Greek goddesses to help you develop their unique qualities
(For full description see further below).
I appreciate the spaciousness of our art and movement practices in the workshops. I feel enough room and supportive femininity to let energy bubble up unexpectedly. It feels freeing and healing. These goddesses are rad.
The Goddess workshops with Maria are exciting, playful, creative, informative, and fun. I leave feeling more grounded and touched by the space we have created as a group. My inner child is grateful.

The Alchemical Goddess :
Aphrodite belongs in her own category as alchemical goddess that represents the magic process or power of transformation that she, alone, has, through love and creativity. She is present in all creative work and act of communication; whenever growth is generated, a vision supported, and potential developed, a spark of creativity encouraged – as can happen in different kind of relationships – then Aphrodite is there, affecting both people involved.
The quality of her consciousness is like the light of the footlights. It is centered, and also receptive; it incorporates the object that focuses but is also affected by it. Everything below her light becomes fascinating.
