Goddess Conference Workshop 2020

Join Annabel at her Goddess Conference Workshop journeying with the Earth Mother of the Rose Lineage embodied in the Sumerian Queen Kubaba, Anatolian Cybele and the Black Madonna, with guided visualisation, drumming, chanting, dance and ritual

Earth Mother of the Rose Lineage: Kubaba, Cybele & the Black Madonna

Join me for my 2.5 hour Workshop on Wednesday afternoon at the Goddess Conference in Glastonbury

Worship of the Anatolian Earth Mother Cybele has its roots in the Rose Lineage cult of the Sumerian Queen Kubaba, who was depicted holding a tympanum (frame drum), the instrument later used in the rites of Cybele in ancient Greece and Rome. Known as ‘Mother of the Mountain’ in all Her primal, raw, wild nature, Cybele’s mystery cult featured loud, percussive music of frame drums and castanets with circle-dancing by women. On the mountain of Montevergine, where Virgil was once initiated at her temple in the area of Southern Italy where my novel The Serpent’s Tale is set, these rites are still enacted in honour of the Black Madonna. In this workshop, we will explore the ancient rites of the Rose Lineage Earth Mother Kubaba, Cybele and the Black Madonna through guided visualisation, drumming, chanting, dance and ritual for our healing and empowerment.
