Welcome to the Goddess Pilgrimage to Crete with Carol Christ.  We look forward to meeting you in Crete.

Still pondering? An unsolicited letter from a participant may help you decide.

Dear Carol, You have modeled the importance of leadership and you have been generous and thoughtful. I thank you for:

  • the morning blessing—how lovely and satiating it was each day to speak and sing our gratitude to the earth;

  • the evening sharing circles—and your gentle insistence that no matter how hungry and tired we were, we needed first to reflect upon and integrate our day;

  • the Cretan people you incorporated into the tour—allowing us to learn from and appreciate each other;

  • riding up a mountain on the back of a farm truck—freeing us from any sense of lack of ability or pomp;

  • encouraging us to dance and sing—two things many of us thought we couldn’t do;

  • your wonderful, tender, and intelligent lectures and stories;

  • your low-key determination that we could climb into caves and up to the tops of mountains;

  • and finally, your knowledge and insights on the archaeological sites.

You personify how we can live our lives as women who love the earth and the Goddess. I have learned so much with you on this pilgrimage. I don’t want to say good-bye. Love, Margaret
