Suppressed Histories Events
visual presentations by Max Dashu

Sunday, August 10, 7:00 pm, at Spirit House

Max Dashú screens excerpts from her DVD WOMAN SHAMAN: the Ancients
with commentary and discussion

Woman Shaman uncovers a rich cultural record of medicine women, seers, oracles, healers, trance-dancers, shapeshifters, and dreamers—on a global scale. To experience the beauty, power and wisdom of these spiritual legacies is medicine for the spirit, especially for women who were pushed down, marginalized, denied, and silenced in the name of religion.
These most ancient spiritual ways have immense value for all of us—however far back, or deep, we have to go to recover our human birthright.


We’ll view seven chapters from the double disc DVD, including Invocation, Drums, Serpents, Healers, Mirrors—and two audience choices: perhaps Shamanic Goddesses? Entheogens? Shapeshifters, Animal Spirits, or Shamanic Staffs? You decide...

Sunday, 24 Nov. Sydney daylong double shows

Breasts! visual presentation 10 am

 

Max Dashu will show ceremonial Breastpots from China, Tennessee, Nigeria, the Philippines, Central America, and Central Europe.
Rejoice in the symbolism of women’s life-giving breasts as depicted in wall murals, doors, pillars, funerary urns, even furnaces; and in votive plaques, figurines, megaliths, gold pectorals, carved drums, and stone fountains. A fun and inspirational exploration of this overlooked global iconography of the Female Divine.

Grandmother Stones of Megalithic Europe 1 pm

  The female statue-menhirs of France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Sardinia are Europe’s earliest monumental art, omitted by most histories. We’ll see these rarely-published monuments, with a few from Germany, Ukraine, and Greece. We’ll explore their recurrent symbols of breasts and necklaces, the “ancestor-face,” vulva signs, and note similarities to megalithic women in Algeria and Ethiopia. This hidden mother-right heritage lies at the foundations of European history.
