Artemis Sacred Journeys to Tinos and Delos
June 7th to 15th, 2018
I can hardly wait to put my feet in the sea and hands on the stones again on Tinos island. I want to repaint the Phidousa Serpent sculpture (see photos above) with others in this retreat given by my dear friends, Mary Rockwood Lane and Lisa Rasmussen, as a prayer and ceremony to reawaken the Shakti Serpent power of wisdom, not only within each one of us, but in the world at this time of forgetfulness.
