It was an immense pleasure to meet a goddess sister like Kaouthar. I just wrote a book called “The Future is Feminine”. Kaouthar is an important contribution to this future, and a benefit to all women that come to her, and to their men and children. I loved her work and wisdom, and so will you.Kirsten Stendevad
Kaouthar is not only beautiful, sensual, clever, funny, down-to-earth and sensitive but also really generous with her time and knowledge. She helps women get in touch with their feminity and their power with grace. She brings women together, as sisters. She helps us balance our feminine and masculine energies within. And much more! Ladies, sisters, join up as soon as you can, you won’t regret it!Jacqueline Rime
Below you can read information about the 7 different Goddess Archetypes.
Ishtar – Aphrodite, the Art of Connection Spirit-Heart-Womb
Do you love your body? Do you find yourself attractive?
Do you enjoy your sensuality / sexuality?
Do you use your erotique as a creative force?
Do you feel comfortable to show and play with your sensuality?
Or do you ‘worry’ about what the others would think of you?
The Alchemical Goddess Ishtar – Aphrodite is THE patroness / protectress of the Goddess dance. Through sensual and watery ‘Temple Dances’ you learn the Ishtar-Aphrodite Goddess Essence: the sacred art of connecting mind-heart-womb.
You feel attractive, passionate, sensual, in touch with that juicy and creative woman in you.
Dress code: attractive, sexy.
Artemis, the Compassionate Warrior and Supportive Sister
Can you stand up for yourself and fight like a fierce warrior? Can you be, at the same time, strong and vulnerable? Can you develop loving and supportive connections with other women?
Here you explore and dance the Warrior Goddess, known for her focus, courage and fearlessness. You dance and connect with that primal power in your womb, where life begins; but also the same primal power to help you fight and protect that same life if threatened. Fight like a fearless goddess.
And when not hunting, this dynamic goddess rests and relaxes surrounded by the warmth of her sisters. Through fun tribal dances you will explore the intimacy and solidarity amongst women.
You will feel strong, fierceful, fearless, supported, nurtured.
Dress code: Warrior Queen, Tribal Queen.
Persephone – The Child, Goddess of the Underworld
“The word dark has been used to scare her away from the fullness of her essence for a long time. She was programmed into a belief that only light is pure, and the dark is evil. She was allowed to live and experience only the ‘good’ girl. Her dark is nothing but her denied feminine. It not evil It is sacred.”
Do you suffer from anger, guilt and/or shame?
Do you like to please, seeking for recognition and acceptance?
Do you allow the naughtily little girl inside to play and experiment?
With the goddess Persephone we perform ‘Trance Dance Rituals’ to cleanse and heal our system from repressed anger, shame and guilt. We practice ‘Intuitive Dances’ to feel the ‘Yes’ and the ‘No’ intuitively (and not rationally). We also enjoy ‘Playful Dances’ to connect with the shameless free child.
You will feel reborn, healed, empowered, vulnerable, playful; radiating joy, optimism and lightness.
Dress code: your favorite little girl outfit.
Al Um – Demeter, the Maternal Goddess of Fertility and Regeneration
How to get out easily from the feelings of powerlessness, sorrow and depression?
How to move, via the dance, from the feeling of darkness towards that of light?
With this Mother goddess we will dance sorrow and pain, joy and the pleasure. With earthy dances we celebrate the natural cycles of life and death. With sensual and fluent dances we experience emotional warmth, a flow of maternal love creating a magical bond between you and your inner child, as well as between you and other women.
You will feel grounded, nurtured, nourished, caring, generous, resourceful…
Dress code: Fluent dress/skirt with earthy colours.
Hestia, the Dances of Ecstasy to connect with your Divine Self
Can you easily reach inner centeredness and inner wisdom?
Can you face the challenge of solitude and enjoy being alone?
Can you transform aloneness into a meditative experience?
Through Sufi dances (12th century), also called the ‘Dances of Ecstasy’, we go on a sensory inner journey into the mesmerizing world of spirit. These spiritual dances connect you with your inner light and lightness.
You will feel inner-centered, ecstatic, meditative, connected to the divine.
Dress code: a long wide dress or skirt, white colours.
Athena – Shahrazade, The Erotic Brain
Want to create a flow between your brain and your body-womb?
Would like to be assertive without being aggressive?
Enhance your masculine qualities without loosing your feminine essence?
The most efficient erotic weapon of Shahrazade in 1001 Night was neither her beauty nor her sexual skills or belly dance skills but her… erotic brain. She was like a wise enchantress focused on reaching her targets by using her brain in an intellectual, strategic, playful and sensual way.
We perform ‘Ethnic Arab Dances’ that bend the feminine with the masculine touch, the softness with the vigor, the intellectual with the sensual…
You will feel self-confident, assertive, flexible in body and mind…
Dress code: androgyny, masculine/feminine
Hera, Goddess of the Sacred Union
Would you like to experience the highest form of ‘Sacred Marriage’?
Would you like to get rid of jealousy, anger and manipulation? Of a nagging behaviour and addiction to perfection?
Would you like to enjoy the full impact of your natural authority and possess executive leadership ability?
Do you want to connect with your feminine archetype of wife and matriarch of the family?
Thanks to ‘Sacred Mating Dances’ we activate the Goddess Hera who represents the highest form of ‘Sacred Marriage–of Queen and King– concerned with partnership. She embodies the instinct to become mated and represents the uniting of feminine and masculine energies regenerating the cosmos with lovemaking.
Hera’s gift is her capacity to unite and commit to a successful man as her partner–one who will share his love and success with her; a god who will mirror her own inner goddess.
You feel like: the goddess of a god, uniting your masculine & feminine, a natural authority,
Dress code: Sacred Union outfit
Self-investment = self-care = self-love
