A Six Month Immersion into the Shadows
Join Ananda Divine and Amber Zeta as we serve as your guides and facilitators to commune with the Dark Goddess, journey to the Underworld to endarkening your life and ascend to enlightenment.
This course is devoted to exploring your connection to the Dark Goddesses and Her varied attributes, with a deeper dive into “Her-story” as well as your own inner world. The Dark Goddess represents the energies of the womb, the void, and the cauldron of creation as well as the realm of the Underworld. Death, rebirth, regeneration are all ruled by the Dark Goddess. Her’s is the realm of shadows and darkness, of where we hide aspects of ourselves because we deem them too scary, too much, or not okay or unacceptable. This is also the space where we hide vital parts of ourselves, traits and experiences that, if integrated, can bring healing and transformation.
This course is for anyone who is ready go well under the surface to discover their hidden treasure. Do you long to know the Dark Goddess in a more intimate and personal way? Would you like to harness the energetic aspects of the Dark Goddess in navigating daily life? This course is for you if you wish Her to walk alongside you as you journey to your own personal depths and inner truths in a supportive environment.
The journey to the Dark Goddess can be seen as a rite of passage.
The journey truly begins at the point of transitioning to the natural cycle of death, bringing the traveler into the liminal space where it appears that all has been lost. Death is most often seen as a transition that is negative. Yet, death is part of life and life cannot continue without many deaths. These transitions may be endings such as the loss of someone we love, a relationship that has ended, losses of employment and even illnesses that are life threatening. Death and endings are part of life. Without it, we would be stuck in those dead end experiences, be it a job, a relationship, a friendship, a habit.
The dark phase of the Moon’s cycle is a phase of ending; of closure, one where life appears to end with no signs of returning. However, in this phase there exists the cycle of transformation that offers the traveler strength and courage to grow and integrate a new phase of life. The Dark Goddesses are guides that we can look to when we are moving through the dark times in our lives. In studying myth, we come to understand that the purpose of challenging life transformations is to have faith in renewal. The moon’s dark phase was once seen as a time of fear and is associated with death and isolation. Yet, this is where the seed is planted, the soil fertilized for the next harvest. The embodiment of these energies is the Dark Goddess.
Known by many names–Lilith, Kali, Hecate, The Morrigan, and many more, archetypally She represents death, sexuality, wisdom of the body and soul, as well as the unconscious, the dream realm, the pysche; that which is least understood, and often feared aspects of life.
We begin the course with Her Descent Phase, spending the first session reacquainting with the Dark Goddess and will immediately dive down in the Descent with the second session. We will winter right along with Her and the Earth as we explore our own depths, mining for lost parts of ourselves. As Spring emerges, so will we, and we will spend the rest of the course integrating the lessons we learned from the depths and incorporating the new information and energy.

The Dark Goddess is She who calls us to express our inner nature and explore what has been repressed and forgotten.
