The Goddess Studio is dedicated to honoring the Sacred
Feminine and empowering women.
Our primary intent is to offer a sacred space
and opportunities for women to discover the Divine Feminine, learn Goddess
herstory, share meaningful ceremony and celebrate our passages, expand our self
esteem, express our creativity, and connect in a like minded community of
THE GODDESS STUDIO AS A SPACE: The Goddess Studio is an actual place on private property in rural Escondido, near San Diego, California, founded by Amalya and her husband in 2003. It is a beautifully appointed, sacred space that serves as a temple for ceremony, a dance studio for belly dance classes, a photography studio for Amalya’s Glorious Goddess Portraits, a sanctuary for women to be their selves in, and a place for workshops, concerts, "Red Tents", dance shows, and other delightful gatherings!
THE GODDESS STUDIO AS A COMMUNITY: Demographically speaking we are women of the San Diego area in our mid twenties to mid sixties, from a wide variety of heritages and backgrounds. Most gatherings are for adult women, but we do welcome maidens and men too as some gatherings. As a spiritual community, we come from many religious backgrounds and most of us find that the studio experiences expand or enhance our spiritual paths. We are an open community, this is not a religious organization or a non-profit and there is no membership structure or dues.
PHILOSOPHY: We advance ideals that celebrate all traditions of Goddesses and Earth honoring values. We encourage all activities that empower women and men to find greater self esteem, integrity and balance. And we honor all paths that affirm positive metaphysical, shamanic and magical practices in a non-hierarchical structure. (For an expanded article see "What is the Sacred Feminine" essay.)
If you are interested in learning more about the herstory of the Sacred Feminine, the legacy of the Goddesses, and participating in ritual, ceremony and events in a beautiful environment that focuses on healing and empowering women, then this is a great place for you. And if you know of others who share this vision, invite them to come play too...
