God­desses meet

Somerset Life - - SOCIETY -

For the last 23 years, in Au­gust, Glas­ton­bury hosts the an­nual God­dess Con­fer­ence. Three to four hun­dred del­e­gates travel from all over the world for a week of lec­tures, work­shops, art, dance, mu­sic and a fancy dress ball.

Each year a dif­fer­ent god­dess is hon­oured and this year was the turn of the Moon Maiden God­dess. The week cul­mi­nates with a pro­ces­sion that winds its way up the high street and to the Tor, to the ac­com­pa­ni­ment of drums, chant­ing, ban­ners and en­thu­si­as­tic high spir­its.N
