Get These Goddesses to Glastonbury!

The Mothers of the New Time have been invited to present at this year’s Glastonbury Goddess Conference!

This is the opportunity of a lifetime - perhaps many lifetimes! While we are in Britain, we will visit as many sacred sites as possible, bringing our own prayers and petitions as well as making magic for our wider community.

Each Priestess has been saving money and creating fundraising opportunities to pay her own way, and the Mothers as a tribe have been joining forces and resources to keep our expenses as low as possible and ensure that no Mother is left behind!

Expenses to make this magic happen include airfare, accommodation in London and Glastonbury, transportation, food, and other necessities while we are in Britain, and admission to the Conference.  It all adds up to quite a sum, so we will also need to raise money from the wider community to cover it all.

The Mothers of the New Time welcome women to a ceremony in honor of Kali as we celebrate the Goddess Sabbat Solstice of the Goddess Rising.


We are the rising of the moon. We are the shifting of the ground. We are the seeds that take root, when we bring the fortress down! ~ Starhawk

How can we rise from the ashes of our current political destruction? We are hurting and need the nurturance of Kali as the mother of all creation. We will be working with Her destructive and creative forces to help transform the despair, anger, grief, rage, etc. of this year into a rising of the most powerful women's movement this nation has ever seen! We sweep our homes, lives, minds and hearts clean, preparing for the new year, the NEW NOW. Through Kali we learn that the cycle of life begins anew.

Please bring your practical and/or ceremonial broom to this ritual to be blessed.

Please bring a blanket to sit on, items for the altar, and any offerings or food you'd like to share.


Note: The Mothers of the New Time will be spending the next year re-structuring our practices, and we will not be holding public Goddess Sabbats in 2017.
