Goddess in Melbourne : Welcome
Gaia's Garden is dedicated to Creating Goddess Community, through a deeper connection with the Divine Feminine.
Gaia’s Garden is both a sacred place, for ceremonial and ritual work, and an evolving community of women who are journeying with the Goddess.
We offer devotional and self-exploratory services, including workshops and study circles, readings, and more.
Our current location in Kew East, is available for hire by small groups and individuals. We have an extensive product range of clothes, jewellery and glass which we design and ship around the world. Gaia’s Garden also provides a B&B for women travelers who want a quiet space to recharge and connect with their sacred journey.
Blessed Be, and welcome.
Max Dashu in Melbourne
Gaia's Garden invites you to:
The true story about our past is an inspiration for our future.
The renowned woman scholar Max Dashu, who is the world expert on women's suppressed histories, will be in Melbourne in November presenting her stunning slide shows revealing the visual evidence of women's spiritual and temporal power throughout history.
An extra special Q & A session will be held at which you can milk Max's vast knowledge base and those with knowledge of the Goddess cultures, or who want to explore deeper, are especially invited to attend.
Max Dashu founded the Suppressed Histories Archives, in USA, in 1970 to document women’s global history and heritages. Her legendary slide shows use images to teach about female power, mother-right, ancient iconography, patriarchy, conquest, racism, and other systems of domination. She’s created two videos: Women’s Power in Global Perspective and Woman Shaman: the Ancients.
Her Facebook page Suppressed-Histories-Archives has 135,000 followers.
Her various shows in Melbourne are described in detail with prices and locations at:

The Sacred Drama group at Gaia’s Garden has developed and performed two plays and one ritual pieces which opened the GAIA Inc. Conference in 2012.
The group has been invited to perform this year at the Glastonbury Goddess Conference in July.
Goddess Sacred Drama Group
"The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul.
And creativity is what makes life worth living."
Calling all women interested in the feminine divine expressed through dramatic forms.
Come and try; stay and contribute
Actors, Directors, Writers, Improvisers and those who don't yet know they are any of these.
The group is facilitated by the members, with each contributing from her experience.
Explore mask-work; embodiment; the ritual/drama nexus; script work and improvisation.

website mission statement:
This website is designed to provide information about the work that we are doing and connect with women who are interested in the Divine Feminine and Goddess worship. We do this by posting papers and workshop materials as they are developed, offer resources for those interested in setting up Study Circles and provide a site for exchange and discussion.
Gaia's Garden respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri people past and present of the Kulin Nation. We also pay respect to all Aboriginal Community Elders and people, past and present who have held this land sacred and cared for it over generations.
