Herstory

The Goddess Foundation began in Littlehampton, Sussex, having evolved from Circle of The Old Ways. COTOW used to have an esoteric 'charity shop' come spiritual centre where we held various groups such as meditation, discussion groups, spiritual and self-development, Pagan groups, Buddhist groups, and of course Goddess Circles. When the premises closed in 2007, the Goddess Circle moved venue with a regular group of women attending.

More and more women seemed to be interested in coming together in Goddess Circles so I decided to build on that. I then decided to form TGF and became immersed in the bigger picture.  The Goddess Foundation was officially set up on 1 May 2009 with myself (Annabell Alexander), Emma Orpin and Helen Oram. Due to other commitments, Helen and Emma had to retire from TGF, and for two years Marie Davenport stepped in to help organise events and keep things running. Sadly, Marie also had to take a step back when she returned to work.  With the growth of interest, The Goddess Foundation now has many women who take on various parts of the running of the organisation, events, publicity and even Zoe who very kindly helps with admin on Facebook.

This year (2014) saw our 3rd Annual Sisterhood Gathering at Avebury Stone Circle in Wiltshire.  We had a brilliant day and welcomed women from Milton Keynes, Greenwich,  East Sussex, West Sussex, Glastonbury and more.  We are looking to expand this idea as the interest grows.

The Sisterhood is growing!
