In a time of violence and hate, peace and love is more important than ever. The opportunity to feel accepted while practicing spiritual growth is the goal of the annual Goddess Fest, hosted in Boise's Julia Davis Park by the Golden Thread Grove Church. The event offers unique workshops, prayers, meditations and rituals all with the goal of "sharing wisdom, love, peace and joy freely." Learn to play the recorder, make a dragon's egg, practice laughter yoga and explore the women-only Red Tent Experience, which provides women the opportunity to learn about and connect with the goddess through "(mostly interactive) goddess altars." There will also be live performances of belly dancing, storytelling and uplifting music. Grab your henna and put some flowers in your hair; this event is sure to unleash the goddess in everyone.
