All are our vehicles for healing of our communities and our Earth Mother. In 2013 our theme for the Australian Goddess Conference was - 'Into the Wild'.

Australian Goddess Conference 2013 - 'Into the Wild'
In 2012 the GAIA committee fully embraced the energy of the world with ‘The Transformation’. It was an extraordinary year of change. Many felt like they'd been thrown into Cerridwen's cauldron and stripped bare, brought to the rawness of the Self... shown the power of this transformation.
As the committee talked of a theme for 2013 and birthed 'Into The Wild', there was a profound awareness of shaking off that last bit of snakeskin shed from The Transformation. There came an innate sense to be free, to be wild.
The Wild Goddess stirs within us and awakens our primal instincts. She brings with Her an untamed energy filled with the potential of what awaits us when we connect with our wild self, our wild feminine. She speaks of freedom, strength, trust, abandon, new beginnings, movement and a power of entering the unknown with an unfettered spirit.
Listen as She calls to our wild beating hearts, as she howls to the moon and runs uninhibited through this vast land. She is the essence of wild creatures, the wilderness of our earth, the wild elements of our country, wild dance, drama, art and song. She is the wild potent energy of the Goddess.
2013 Australian Goddess Conference – ‘Into the Wild’ invited you to step into your wild wisdom.
