 Maureen is an artist & storyteller. She has devoted much time seeking out, the natural technologies of the Womb from different traditions and offers clues to them in her retreats. She introduces women to the once common New Moon Lodge practice (or Dark Lodge/Red Tent) that was once an essential global phenomenon revered by all. Maureen feels that reclaiming the power of the womb is a step away, 

Maureen is a draftswoman, colourist and sculptor. In her early years she enjoyed a career as a fashion illustrator and cartoonist for 2 canadian animation companies.During her 10 years of travelling to original cultures in Papua Nugini, Indonesia, the Australian Outback and the high Arctic, she was exposed to true indigenous art forms that were part of the rituals and ceremonies created to commune with nature .It was here she first witnessed the existence of  men and women’s sacred spirit houses as two separate sanctuaries, that complimented each other.

Dr. Margeurite Rigoglioso PHD, teacher, author, Seven Sisters Mystery School. San Fransisco. USA


We are honoured to have Marguerite  travel to W.S. from San Fransisco,in 2015,16 and 17 to share her discoveries and insights, in the world of  Feminine Spirituality. Marguerite has written 3 books on Divine Birth, from the Greek tradition and is continually pushing boundaries and reading against the grain in ‘his story’ to reclaim hidden truths of the Divine Feminine Principal, that have been distorted and dismissed.

We credit her with sourcing out actual practices of self conceiving, once common among trained practitioners, in the ancient world. At W.S. we continue to explore this path.

Powerful Images from the

Ancient World 

More powerful than words….let these images sink in to your memory banks and gestate them within! They are tools, frescos and carvings from the life of female Shaman and Priestesses and their people. Art can bypass the intellect and the modern mind.

Three superposed lotus flowers forming a “Sacred tree”. Ivory (open-work, fragment) Right: Lotus flower with 5 petals. Left: Ivory plaque with top and bottom border from Arslan Tash, ancient Hadatu, Northern Syria. 11.3 x 3 cm, AO 11481; 7.6 x 2.1 cm, AO 11482

This group is from Israel from the time of Queen Jezabel .These are some of her sacred tools she used as a high Priestess of Asherah. Asherah, the central deity of the time, is known as the Tree of Life-The Giving Tree. Her consort is El. Their child is Yahweh. Note the ivory carvings and the ceramic tower with 4 levels and aspects. These priestesses knew the art of self conceiving & more. Asherah was banished around 1000 BCE. She had been central for about 15,000 years or so. Jezabel, when an old woman, was murdered by Elijah. She was later demonized. We are beginning to reclaim her greatness and Asherah’s, through visioning.
