Keynote Event


 By Veda Austin

Author and Artist Veda Austin makes a quantum leap from the spring board of Masaru Emoto’s microscopic work with ice crystals, that allows us to view water as an intelligent force, with the power to respond to human consciousness in ways never before thought possible. In this talk Veda talks about humans as bodies of water, what that means for us, and specifically the Wild Waters of Women!

Don't Miss One Moment!


With 16 Women from four continents we appreciate the challenge of attending all the events. As a result all sessions will be recorded and a Facebook Group will be created for ongoing discussions

The Mushrooms Apprentice

By Shonagh Home

Sacred Mushroom: The Making of a Medicine Woman.

Of Celtic heritage, Shonagh follows the wisdom of the ancients and serves as a Bàn Draoi (dree), Gaelic for a Celtic medicine woman/seer. As a modern medicine woman, she brings her connection to nature and the spirit worlds into her retreats and private sessions. For the past 12 years she has apprenticed herself to the mushroom teachers, who have led her to profound connection with the spirits of nature and her ancestral roots. She is a seer who specializes in shadow work, delving into the rich territory of the deep psyche. In this talk Shonagh will speak to working with spirit intelligences through the mushroom.

Roundtable Discussion

Cultivating Sexual Ecstasy

Ecstasy is a technique highly developed by shamans, mystics, magicians and others with healing and psychic-transformation powers. It is an altered state of consciousness characterized by significantly reduced external awareness and expanded interior mental and spiritual awareness, frequently accompanied by visions and emotional euphoria. There are many ways to access it, but through this discussion, we explore how the cultivation and application of sexual energy can transform a physical act into a spiritual experience, deepening a connection with your partner and creating truly ecstatic experiences. Beyond that, we look at the application of sexualizing energies to fuel a longer life span, as well as the activation of human superpowers or supersensible faculties lying dormant in most humans.

Questions are encouraged at this exciting live panel discussion.

Roundtable Discussion

Is Magick Really Real? For real?

As Arthur C Clarke said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic”, and so with consciousness an enigma for today’s scientists, the idea of an advanced technology of Applied Consciousness fits right into the category of Magick! While the practice of magick is fundamentally about raising and directing energy to fulfil your intentions, there are two other Clarke laws applicable to the discussion of magick, and these are….
  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

Let’s explore the impossible together with the Magickal Women who live it!



By Laura Watkins

We all have experienced the effects of music on our souls. It can take us back in time to some of the most important occasions of our lives. But what if music could be used alchemically to heal, remove things that no longer serve you, or express creativity? In this workshop, Laura will take us on a journey into the alchemy of music and teach us how to use this powerful tool in our lives!


Other Ways of Knowing

by Vanese Mc Neill

Entering Pharaonic Consciousness

As the Magical Egypt Series producer, Vanese’s work has led to questions like, “How did the Ancients know?” “How were they so very smart?” “How did they do the things they did?

To answer these questions, Vanese has had to travel down many disparate rabbit holes researching topics like Kundalini, PSI, Imaginal Realms, Tantric Practices, and Entheogens, all congealing into an idea presented by Schwaller De Lubciz of Pharaonic Consciousness. In this stimulating talk, Vanese shares revelations from her team’s investigation of the archeological record that suggests that the ancients had a highly developed science of consciousness, how that reconfigures how we should think about our ancestors and how we can take advantage of what has been found today!



Celebrating Athon Veggi

Laura Watkins and Vanese Mc Neill spend time with Anthon Veggi’s as she shares adventure from her astounding life as a Mystic who has full memory of her life in Ancient Egypt. In this life she is an Italian author artist and architect.  Athon Veggi has conducted extensive research into the archetypal relationships between place, art, and architecture in Egypt, the Middle East, and India.

Speaks of Shonagh

I highly recommend Tina’s Rune Readings.    The readingwas really helpful and insightful.  Tina went into detail about the meaning of each of the three runes as she pulled them, and then discussed the meaning of the three together. Overall, it was a great experience and really helped me.

On Tina Kemp

A remarkable investigation.  Veda Austin has produced some interesting and impressive images which go way beyond what would be expected on the basis of conventional science.  I hope that her pioneering work will stimulate others to follow up with systematic investigations of their own”.

She received her BA and MA from the Pontifical Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, Canada, and her PhD from Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. As an active academic for over 20 years, she uses her scholarly training to investigate topics other academics often pass over, such as: Can spirituality and sexuality be experienced as one? Who was the real Mary Magdalene? Is there a lineage of Goddesses now resurfacing in our collective experience of spirituality?

Apart from her writings for academic publications on spiritual travel, Joanna has also had her short stories and essays published through various media and in many prestigious anthologies, including Best Australian Stories, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, She Rises and Rebelle Society. She is on the editorial board of the International Journal of Goddess Studies.


In this talk Joanna will cover the connection of Mary Magdalene with the Goddesses of Eros, We will look at Mary Magdalene as an Alchemist in Alexandria and the discovery of the Gospel of Mary Magdalene in Egypt, What does the Gospel of Mary Magdalene actually teach? Joanna will guide us through a short closing meditation.

Roundtable Discussion

The Magdalen Manuscript

The Magdalen Manuscript: The Alchemies of Horus & the Sex Magic of Isis is an enigmatic channelled work by Tom Kenyon in which Mary recounts the story of her and Yeshua’s love. The Mary Magdalene of that book tells us that she was an advanced initiate in the temple of Isis in Egypt, initiated into both the Alchemies of Horus & the Sex Magic of Isis. This roundtable will discuss the alchemical practices outlined in the text and personal revelations about them.


The Art of Temperance, from the Initiate’s Way

By Jade Maleny

Jade in an artist and author of the Initiate’s Way book and Cards

Jade will give an introduction on how the Initiate’s Way came to be. What it is. And how it can be used for healing and spiritual development.

The Art of Temperance pathworking is from a series of 22 Pathworkings that make up the system of the Initiate’s Way.

Jade created the pathworkings first, and the went through the awakening journey with a small magical group. The Arcana of the Initiates Way were painted after these magical spaces were brought to life, as healing spaces that can be visited for spiritual development and connecting with your true nature!

At the time of the Winter Solstice it is the perfect moment for putting ones self into the Cauldron of regeneration.

The Cauldron is the source of inspiration, creativity, wisdom and knowledge. Before you can put yourself in it you have to know where to find it! The Cauldron is the vas; the womb of the great Mother, and through her you can recreate your world from within.

In the workshop Jade will lead you through the pathworking, into the cave of the Initiates to meet with the masters and ancestors who have gone before you. To begin your rebirthing process along with the re-birth of the light!
