Goddess Conference Australia 18/19/20 October 2019
CO-WEAVERS AND CAULDRON KEEPERS
Bilawara Lee and Anique Radiant Heart were at a Conference sharing a room and sharing their dreams and visions when they realised that they had similar visions for the Goddess Community in Australia.
This Conference is the result of those late night discussions.
“The reason I decided to work with Anique on this conference was to bring about a very important healing to the Goddess community here in Australian and to nurture women and girls – both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal to come together and have a life changing experience in the Devine Feminine.”
