The “Goddess Studio Meetup” is an official group of the international web based networking assistance organization called “Meetup, Inc.”* As an official group, I have paid membership dues ($150 year) to “Meetup” in order to obtain online access to moderate a group.


The intention of the “Goddess Studio Meetup” group is to provide another way for Goddess fans to connect and chat online as well as to create more opportunities to actually meet in person. Also this group is about expanding the community of women who would like to share in any of the other activities offered at The Goddess Studio.

What is the intent for our gatherings?

Our intention for these Meetup gatherings is to empower women, deepen our spirituality, and strengthen our community by sharing about the Sacred Feminine and the mythology of the Goddess.

Since 2011 we've focused on honoring most of the eight sacred seasonal days of the year, called “Sabbats”. (See "Wheel of the Year" image below.)

These gatherings will be educational as well as incorporate ceremony, meditation, dialogue, and sometimes movement and craft making.  We’ll be focused on learning and understanding about the significance of the Sacred Feminine and the many Goddess archetypes throughout history as well as how this understanding can add greater meaning and purpose to our lives now.

1. OUR THEME is:  Honoring the Great Grain Mother!

It is time to celebrate the 1st Harvest of the year.

Lammas is the first of the three harvest sabbats and marks the beginning of the end of summer. It heralds the wheel turning once more from the time of planting to the beginning of the gathering of the harvest crops such as wheat, oats, and corn.


“The reaping of the first ripened grain was a great cause for celebration in honor of the Great Grain Mother who feeds us all. She has been known by many names: Astarte, Ashoreth, Isis, Demeter, Ceres, Op, Terre Mater, Tailltiu, Chicomecoatl, Green Corn Girl, Blue Corn Girl, Mother Quescapenek.” (Mamma Donna)


Lammas (Loaf-mass) is also seen as a time to salute the grain itself. Worldwide grain is seen as symbolic of the cycle of rebirth and death for it is planted, it grows and then it dies out.


Many cultures around the world honor this 1st harvest by baking and sharing breads and by creating tokens from the grain or corn such as braided wreaths or dolls made out of the dried corn shocks or sheaves of wheat. These dolls represent the spirit of the grain, the cycle of fertility, the embodiment of the harvest and the Great Grain Mother.


For our celebration this year, we will be crafting sacred Corn Dollies out of dried corn shocks (husks) and offering them to the Great Grain Mother as a token of our gratitude for her sustenance.

We will be experiencing a beautiful meditation and ritual drama and then crafting simple CORN HUSK DOLLIES as an offering to the Great Grain Mother.

Please bring dinner dishes such as salads, or cold casseroles/side dishes, or something in a small dish that can be heated in a microwave. Amalya will supply tea/coffee and drinks, and plates etc.
