Greetings and Welcome to The Goddess Festival of Mendocino!

We are grateful that you chose to be a part of this exciting event.  A shift in consciousness is accelerating on and in our Mother Earth, Gaia.  Together we can assist this shift through gathering in intentional ways.  That is the purpose of the Goddess Festival of Mendocino.

The Festival

This festival is a celebration of the Goddess of Love and calls to restore the balance between the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine. The three-day event includes sacred ceremonies, workshops & play-shops, music, song, poetry, dance, yoga classes and art exhibits at various locations around the village of Mendocino.

Women and men are invited to celebrate, explore and enjoy the Goddess of Love and her Sacred Beloved.  In honor of the three flames of Isis, The Crone, and the Goddess of Love, please decorate yourselves in the colors of black, red (all shades) and white.


On November 11, 2011, around the world light-workers will gather to pray for a peaceful shift in consciousness. At 11:11 am, PST, the spiritual leaders of the world are calling for a world peace meditation.   There will be people connecting in with our circle from The Great Pyramid and Sphinx in Egypt, Stonehenge, Avebury (one of the largest standing stone circles in the world), India, Machu Picchu, the serpents mound in Arkansas, from Avalon, United Kingdom, from the Goddess Temples of Orange County and San Diego and many other communities and scared spots around the planet.

The Vision

In the summer of 2010, while in Glastonbury for the Goddess Festival I had a vision that led to this festival. In the vision, the Divine Feminine in the form of Gaia was giving birth to the New Paradigm of Love. The Divine Masculine in the form of a New Solar Father Sun energy came in and held her up while she birthed forth the new consciousness. His presence was an act of pure devotion and love for her AND her giving birth was an act of pure love and devotion to us.

At this time, the Goddess is emerging again, realigned with the frequencies of the new times offering herself to birth the transformed New Paradigm Energy of Sacred Love. We, her Children are being called forth to remember our Divine Blueprint and to open ourselves to the healing and transformative powers of Her Divine and Purifying Love.  We honor Her Sacred Beloved as the One Who Holds the Space for Her to birth the transformed New Paradigm Energy of Sacred Love. He is the holder, the initiator of the new transformed and realigned Sacred Masculine energy, the one who is lovingly honoring and supporting the Divine Feminine. It is time for a new vision of The Divine Mother and Divine Father working together in perfect harmony and love.  Bringing the Goddess back into the light of our Hearts, we will heal the wound of separation between the Divine Masculine and Feminine. Together we will anchor a vision of a balanced & harmonious Union of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within ourselves and in all our relations.

May we shift in grace, ease, joy and love.

Blessings and Namasté,

Shanti Balsé
