Tricia is co owner of Gaia's Garden and the organiser of the workshops/functions at Gaia's Garden. Her connection with the goddess has spanned over 25 years and now, through Gaia's Garden she is woking to spread the messages of the goddess to other women.
I have been on my journey to the Goddess for over thirty five years through the traditional church, feminism, women's liberation, social justice work and community activism. The birth of our daughter 21 years ago sparked the desire to create a spiritual community that would support us as parents and her as an emerging woman in a patriarchal world. Following the sale of my social policy consulting business three years ago I have been able to dedicate time and energy to Gaia's Garden, a sacred space for women in Melbourne and more recently to GAIA Inc.
Just to be sure that I have plenty to do, I make jewellery, felt and silk Goddess ritual wear and slumped and fuzed glass artifacts which I sell at festivals and online. I have written a published seven books on sexuality, gender, women's rights and group work and am currently completing three books: Seasons of the Goddess: Perspectives from the Southern Hemisphere; Blessed by Lakshmi: Living with Abundance and Integrity and a book on the Goddess community in Australia with Dr Patricia Rose.
Jenny Cameron is a Co-convener of Gaia’s Garden and the inspiration for much of our work. Her depth of knowledge and connection to the Divine Feminine is a sound base for exploration of new ideas and scholarship.
In 1979 Jennifer travelled for a year visiting matriarchal sites from Malta to Turkey and the Celtic sites of England, Scotland and Brittany - remaining evidence of a great goddess culture across the Western world. Since then she has been exploring ways to express her own spirituality within a feminist framework, informed in more recent years by a concern for Gaia, the Earth. Jennifer has been an activist, involved in organising feminist and then Goddess conferences, recently responsible for the She of 10,000 Faces art exhibition held in May in Melbourne, of goddess – women’s art. She is a member of a Divine Feminine Study Circle and is Co-Convenor of Gaia’s Garden, a place for learning and ritual for the goddess community.
Margaret de Kam
Margaret de Kam came to the Goddess over many years, initially not having words to explain and understand the deep resonance she had with the earth, the seasons, and the depth of feeling she experienced when in the natural world. Over the past 10 years she has participated in many Goddess events conferences and gatherings and has learnt many things and continues to ask herself many questions, she continues the journey now with new and good friends who are on the Goddess path, and through them and her own spiritual practice has developed a deeper understanding of the Goddess in the world. Margaret is a social worker working with children and young adults and their families who are troubled.
