THE GREAT GODDESS GATHERING 2020
“Keepers of the Earth”
A Gathering for women devoted to Mother Earth, Sisterhood and The Feminine Pathway.
Dear Sister, we are SO grateful and excited to invite you to our second Great Goddess Gathering held in the mystical lands of Mother Wales. There has never been a more pivotal time on Earth for us to gather in the loving arms of sisterhood and community, exploring our connection to ourselves, our bodies, to each other and explore ways to care and honour our precious Mother Earth.
Times of collective crisis and chaos breathe GREAT change for humanity and our intentions for moving forwards as a collective and as the one beating heart that we are.
We compassionately understand that the time we are in feels unsettling, and that future commitments may feel far from a grounding choice, but as our Great Mother is given this gift to BREATHE and humanity provided a container to reflect and reset, we have been deeply called to continue to share our light and provide a safe space for us to retreat to and nourish our connection to all that life provides at the end of Summer of 2020.
After the beauty, connection and sacred Sisterhood that was birthed from The GGG 2019 we are BACK to celebrate the Celtic Festival of LAMMAS on this powerful full moon weekend. Come and join us for another expansive gathering of women, connecting circles within circles - as we come together as ONE. A safe space to retreat, connect, nourish and fill up your cup in the ancient druid lands of Mother Wales/ Cymru.
A weekend devoted to Earth keeping, reconnecting with the elements, reclaiming our WILD nature, discovering what it means to be ROOTED & exploring the power of healing that is created when women unite to collectively honour the lands.
CEREMONY . RITUAL. CONNECTION . CELEBRATION . HEALING & CO CREATION
The word ‘Lammas’ comes from the old English for ‘Loaf Mass’, a celebration of the Earth’s bounty, traditionally held at the time of cutting the first corn crop. Lammas is also known as Lughnasadh, a name derived from that of the Celtic Sun God, Lugh.
Lammas festival is celebrated across the globe and dates back from our Druid and Celtic history here in the UK. It is one of the main cross quarter festivals within the Celtic Calendar bookmarked by Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.
Lammas is all about Gratitude. At harvest time feeling thankful for the abundance Mother Earth affords us.
During our gathering we will be deeply tuning in to this energy, to use it to set our intentions for the last part of the year up to and including Winter Solstice.
It’s a magical time to look back at the year so far and celebrate our achievements as well as sending gratitude prayers out for all we already have. Bringing the joy codes to the land for a celebration of all that is.
The Land :
The GGG 2020 has found a new home at the extraordinary lands of Tan Aeldroch Farm. Nestled amongst untouched woodland and bound by the river, surrounded by fairy glens, natural pools and in the heart of the lands where the legend of Merlin unraveled. We will wake up to and journey with the elements every day, honour the lands and the waters in ceremony and re-member that our bodies and the Earth are but one.
“As we journey into our bodies, we journey into the Earth.. And as we heal our precious Mother Earth - we heal ourselves.”
We will journey deep together in sacred circle , sharing our stories, gifts and insights.
Together we will reclaim our cyclic, wild , rhythmic nature through various practices and ceremonies devoted to the feminine and the Earth. A safe space for you to be truly seen, heard, held and loved - in all your shades.
We will roar, sing, celebrate and be held in the loving arms of TRUE sisterhood.
There will also be plenty of time between offerings to explore the lands, wild swim in the river and connect with both the nature spirits and other sisters.
This gathering is for ALL those who identify as women, no matter where you are in your life, your cycle or if you are new to Sisterhood.. You will be welcomed with open arms.
Our Intention is to provide a safe and sacred space for every sister to be celebrated in her truth and authenticity. We believe deeply in the magic of women empowering women, and the profound healing for ourselves, our sisters, the Earth and the collective that comes from us being truly seen, heard and held is profoundly powerful.. So please know that ALL of you is welcome dear one.
The tools, ceremonies and practices that are offered will be seeds you can continue to plant and water for your own growth, as well as for others AND for our precious planet.
There has never been a more pivotal time on Earth for us to re-member that together we can create undeniable MAGIC.. And TOGETHER we can BE the change that this world needs to THRIVE.

Jessica has visited many ancient sacred sites across the globe including Greece, Rome, Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu, Mayan and Aztec temples as well as many Druidic Celtic sites around Britain.
These pilgrimages along with working with many plant teachers and shamanic elders has imbued within her that Earth is a living breathing being herself and the symbiosis between her and us is a REAL thing.
Her work now reflects this along with following the cycles of nature, especially the Celtic cross. We will be sharing all these elements including some Incan teachings to create sacred reciprocity - Ayni - with the planet through Earth Keeping practices.
