This online offering is an in-depth 9 module deep dive into the transformational power of goddess embodiment that you can complete in the comfort of your own home.

This course is accessible but stimulating.

While writing this course, I have utilized my degree in Applied Psychology and Women's Studies and my MSc in Consciousness and Spirituality. I have used the lens of Jungian psychology to discuss my experience concerning the divine feminine's transformative powers.

My background as a professional dancer and gardener and my meditation and yoga practice have facilitated a deeply embodied understanding of the divine feminine. During this course, I will share the essence of what I have learned over the years.

This Course Invites A Return To Grace

Many of us carry trauma, fear, abuse, and oppression; the goddess can help relieve suffering and help develop resilience in the face of adversity and help to facilitate joyful feelings. The attitude of mainstream patriarchal culture impedes connection with the Goddess, 

resulting in a humanity that is disconnected from the divine feminine, sensuousness, and the natural world. This course will highlight the  protective and revelatory aspects of the divine feminine

Through carefully guided exercises in movement, breathwork, Eastern spiritual practices of mudra, mantra, meditation, and devotional dance, you can invite the goddess into your life.

This course is suitable for both novices and experienced goddess seekers alike.

Women can be strong and successful while maintaining a feminine approach to work and life. This course encourages women to succeed in whatever they choose to do in life, whether that be a stay-at-home mum, a businesswoman, an entertainer, or an academic.

The nine modules will reveal powerful forces available to you when you invite each goddess into your mind, body, and soul. Goddesses are real; indeed, it often surprises those who are new to these techniques how they have the power to support personal evolution.

If diligently adhered to, this course has the potential to facilitate an increase in life force energy and can help improve finances, relationships, health, success, friendships, enjoyment of life, peace of mind, connection with divinity, and the flowering of gifts and talents. I have personally seen many lives experience positive transformation, which I believe fractals out into the universe and contribute to healing the Earth.

This nine-module spiritual journey will guide you through nine dimensions of goddess activation as they manifest in the world. The body is used as the receiver of goddess energy. These training sessions stand alone and also build into a sequential journey of discovery and empowerment.

Students will learn rituals and meditations for different aspects of the goddess. Course participants will see how goddess spirituality is present in psychology, feminism, ecology, archaeology, and anthropology. 

This course does not preach religion or a  'way'. The concepts can fit into the established religion of the learner or those with no faith; the goal of this learning is to gain an awareness of the sacredness of life and the divinity of the body and all living phenomena. 

This course encourages self-belief, an enhanced appreciation of the natural world, and an improved relationship with the physical body.

This is not a fluffy 'goddess for dummies' course. It is a deep and personal investigation that asks something of the seeker.

Miracles happen when you tune into goddess energy. She lends you her power and love and brings alive your connection to the evolutionary Self, to others, and to the physical universe. Once these channels are activated, you can continue opening and deepening the relationship with the goddess over time, infusing her enlightened qualities into your life in ever-profound ways.

By the end of the course, students will:

• Know a broad selection of goddesses, their magical and spiritual properties, their cultural origins, and their magical and spiritual properties.

What People are saying about Ishtar;

A switch is flipped as I begin to understand and even revel in my female power...... realizing that I have been well and truly inspired. I set off early on my journey home with a wonderful sense of empowerment, new companions, heightened self-awareness, and a stirring inner goddess.

Kindred Spirit 

Ishtar gently and respectfully challenges some of the harmful paradigms and assumptions underlying major religions of the Western world. In her capacities as artist and healer, Ishtar is able to raise our awareness on multiple levels of what we in the modern West have often lost sight of in our own history and ancestral sacred stories--the affirmation that human beings are part of a much larger Self encompassing all of life, Mother Earth, and the cosmos as a whole.

Professor Stephen Potthoff, CIncinatti, USA

About the goddess workshop -

I felt completely empowered by the positive energy it gave me. It helped me see I had a lot of negative energy that prevented me from fulfilling my potential, and it affected my confidence. I changed my whole attitude for good, and I was able to start changing my career prospects and become a happy, fulfilled person. Thanks a lot, Ishtar!

I loved all the activities, in particular, the sacred art of belly dance with a fire theme; performing our dances with masks around a fire we had all made in such a magical location was amazing...

Debby Dutton - Councillor

An excellent five days of exploring personal mythology and connecting with the natural environment. Brilliant setting, food, and company. The dance, yoga, and Jungian symbolism workshops made this a brilliant way to get away from the tidal forces of modern life.
