Behind the walls of our
physical world is a dimension of pure vibration. When we
sing, we enter that realm and can bring out what is
invisible. We will evoke mythical Paradise with our
voices. Andrea Goodman, singer, composer, voice teacher,
sound-healer, mythic astrologer and ceremonialist, will
guide our sonic exploration of the ancient garden, its
fruits, flowers and birds, the dragon who guards it and
the goddess who is the source of all its fertile beauty.
Paradise was lost when the dragon was slain and the
goddess deposed, but the stars hold its memory in the
constellations of Pegasus, Draco and Virgo.
This event will begin
inside the gallery with a sound workshop to open our
voices and find the specific sounds of the elements
of Paradise and will culminate in a sound
installation in the courtyard at dusk, the time of
transformations, where we become singing stars and
the walls of the city buildings will reflect the
vibrations of Paradise.

Not only does the Sun go into the bold, brave, energetic sign of
Aries as it always does at this time, but it is given an extra
boost from an exact trine to active Mars in
radiant Leo (Mars will be direct as of March 10th, after a
period of retrograde motion since the Winter Solstice). Winter
has been a period of gestation and internal activity. Spring is
a time for birth and new action. The Sun is also conjunct
Mercury and Uranus, so our unique, original voices must be
expressed. The Sun is also directly engaged with the current
Saturn-Pluto struggle. However these forces of form and
transform are working in our lives, this season is the time
to acknowledge them (Mercury), work with them (Saturn), and move
forward (Mars) from our authentic impulse (Uranus), to evolve
powerfully (Pluto). There is a big process in process! The Moon
in beautiful, earthy Taurus will help us stay grounded in our
nurturing communities, and with a square to Neptune and Chiron,
it will keep us emotionally connected to our deep healing

Saturday Dec. 23, 2006
I have just returned from the most enchanting evening. We are blessed
beyond measure in our circle--in our world--to enjoy in this now our
High Priestess, Andrea. Our blessed sister assisted perhaps 200 people
to celebrate the solstice this evening. With beauty and eloquence,
inspiration and skill, She invited in the entities of the directions and
invited the participants to connect with the Goddess and with All That
She shared the mysteries of Nut and Geb and
their offspring, we heard in beautiful detail the love story of Isis and
Osiris. She annointed us all in sound! She invited the participants to
sound. She invited all to celebrate the return of light...I would
love to tell you more, but it is 12:34 a.m. Yet, I knew I could not sleep
had I not shared with you all the joy and love and connection and
satisfaction and enchantment I had the pleasure to experience this
In the process of honoring who we are, we are
changing the world. Love, love, love to you lovely Andrea Goodman, High
Priestess in the Ministry of Maat. Love, and deepest gratitude.
And love to all of you my dear sisters, our love and support for one
another helps all of us honor who we are so that we may reflect All That
Is in this world. I wish a Blessed Solstice and coming year to all.
Warmly, Jane Solorzano

WOMEN'S MYSTERIES RETREATS,
with Revs. IONE & ANDREA GOODMAN
Wonderful news! We will begin to explore the lives, the stories, the
feelings and the thoughts of a new series of archetypes in the
coming year. We have deepened our relationships to Sekhmet, Het Hert,
Nut and Black Auset during our quarterly retreats over many years. A
sufficient number of apprentices have moved forward with great
consistency and it feels right to me that we now move on to delve
into the mysteries of six extraordinary female principles:

An opportunity to expand
your voice in every dimension
For singers and
with something you resonate with
This workshop will
explore vocal expression outside of traditional song. We will focus
on sound itself and discover our vast vocal potential. Approaching
the voice as an instrument, Andrea will introduce healthy,
liberating vocal technique as well as intuitive singing for
sound-healing and for improvisational, evocative music.
Andrea Goodman has a
32-year career of singing without words in a pure universal language
of sound, beginning with 17 years as an original singer in the
Meredith Monk Vocal Ensemble in New York City, touring world-wide,
recording and teaching. She has taught vocal technique since 1979
and practiced sound –healing since 1985. She has lived in Boothbay,
Maine, since 1989, performing with Figures of Speech Theatre, The
Resonance Residence and other musicians. She teaches Cosmic Harmony
class as well as private voice lessons at Ruby-Throated Spirit in
Boothbay. For more about her work, see her website:
