A weekend conference taking place at the Athens Zen Center in the heart of Athens, where Powerful Visionaries and Spiritual Teachers will lead us on a journey of meditation and movement practices focusing on the Feminine Divine Power as it appears in different spiritual traditions.

How does Feminine Divine Consciousness appear in the Yogic, Christian, Buddhist, Ancient Greek and other Earth based Traditions? Or does this Feminine Divine Consciousness TODAY call for a new broader sense of religion and spirituality?

Men and women from all over Greece and abroad are invited to join this circle and open their hearts to different spiritual paths aiming at connecting us with the primordial power of creativity, compassion, and divine love. Let us generate enough positive power to uplift our own Spirits and Hearts along with the Heart of Mother Earth.


Zen Center Athens
Limpona 2 & Vasilikis, Agias Irinis Square, Athens

The venue holds about 150 people; this year we have envisioned organizing a smaller event, rather than a big scale event like our traditional Athens Symposium. So it will be a circle, a Kyklos in Greek, a more intimate gathering of men and women who are ready to embrace the call for the Awakening of the Feminine Divine Consciousness in our lives.


We will gather around a circle and listen to each guest teacher give a short talk about the Feminine Divine in their personal spiritual practice. Then, each teacher will lead us through a practice of physical movement, yoga, or meditation connecting us with that Feminine Divine Spirit.

Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Yoga Educator,Author of Yoni Shakti
