Linda Shreve is a ceremonialist and lifelong student of movement, stories, music and the sacred in everyday life. She currently teaches an online class “The Feminine Wisdom Series” immersing us into the Stories of various Goddesses at Minerva Educational and Wellness Treatment Center, LLC. Linda explores goddesses from the world pantheon in a monthly class called “Goddess Within Us Through the Wheel of the Year ” program at Twin Star Herbal and Energetics School in New Milford, CT, which is in its sixth year in 2022 and has covered over 50 goddesses to date. She is a trained community herbalist and flower essence practitioner, a singer and chant leader, meditator, Reiki Master and movement designer. Her books outweigh her crystals in her house, but that could change at any time. She co-created and led "The Sacred Path of the Black Madonna," a 14-day tour of France and Spain in 2019 and is deeply committed to acting as a spiritual midwife in this time.
Linda studied with Oh Shinnah, First Nations elder, for over 30 years, leading multiple moon circles during that time. She currently studies with Lupo Passero, Community Herbalist and owner at Twin Star Herbal and Energetics School, Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, a third-generation psychic who was for 50 years the director of the Servants of the Light School, and Achan Da and Achan Nipen - Thai Forest monks, studying Mahasati, a body-based Buddhist meditation practice. Past studies include intensive study in the Laban movement tradition, Reiki Master, choreography and dance in NYC, Ideokinesis movement training, years of singing and many others.
The Feminine Wisdom Series
Instructor: Linda Shreve
What do stories about Goddesses and Feminine Wisdom do for us today? The Goddesses of Feminine Wisdom are Spiritual Midwives for our time, with supportive narratives. In chaotic times when challenges abound, the Wisdom Goddess stories are powerful and life changing, steeping us in ancient stories filled with choices and pathways where gems can be found, and returning us changed and wiser.
This is a unique Zoom class with practical take-aways. You will receive a full-color multi-page digital handout just prior to each Zoom class with a Herstory of the Goddess, affirmation, songs, body-based pathways and short daily Wisdom Practices to continue after each class. This class features story-telling, movement, ritual, poetry, guided visualization and song, and herbal wisdom, each related to a different Goddess from the World Pantheon.
By understanding the Story of a Goddess, we Activate that Story in our own lives allowing different choices and options. Join us to understand the Ancient Bones behind the Story of each Wisdom Goddess. The Story of the Goddess dates back at least 30,000 years. We invite you to an exploration of your Feminine Wisdom within as a way of reclaiming and strengthening your own Feminine Power.
We welcome you to co-create with us, re-imagine our world and rebirth the Song of Creation for our Time. These classes are designed for women but are open to all.
