Cara from the House of Theia invoking the Goddess Amphitrite at Point Henry, on the land of the Wuddawurrug People. This chant is based on the song Aphrodite written by Ariana Lightningstorm. The House of Theia offers classes on holding space for Goddess, including writing and performing invocations and crafting transformative ritual.

With nine djembe's in our collection our vegan drumming circle is ready to roll.

And ... no animals were harmed in their making.

Such is the way of things Her titles significance and attributes changed over time with the ebb and flow of history.
