Ancient Ways Festival Panel, Harbin Springs, California, May 5-9, 1993
The Goddess Workshop is a panel discussion exploring the concept of the Goddess and its role in a matriarchal society. Holly Tanner jumps off the panel discussion with AUEPGWM (Ancient Universal Egalitarian Peaceful Goddess Worshiping Matriarchy) and its influence on conceptualizing the Goddess in modern Paganism. Current scholarship is explored including Marija Gimbutas’s groundbreaking early work and later work by Gimbutas and other scholars that tend to make “leaps in interpretation”. Facts will always need to be interpreted, but what are facts versus myth. Sloppy archeology up to the early twentieth century has led to sloppy interpretation.
