WORKSHOP 2: Cosmic Mandala: Creativity for children. ´Mandala´is a Sanskrit word which means ´sacred
circle´. Mandalas represent cosmos, and, when performed, they become active meditation. The real aim of
the course is to prompt creativity, widen perception and transform energy, instead of generating a fine arts
work. We will work with the method of Love, which transforms competitiveness, isolation and anxiety to be
the best, into joy, patience, sense of belonging, sharing, rejoice in oneness, and at the same time, we learn
essential values for our relationships. Conference delivered y Claudia Jiménez (Colombia); Psychologist and
Researcher on Healing Practice Shamanism.
Venue: Centro Español

WORKSHOP 3: MAGIC WANDS
An empowering creative Workshop under the Southern Cross; experiencing the sacred energy of the Goddess,
performing our magic wand and activating it through invoking the Enchanting Princess. We will manifest our
energy through magic and inner powers in the process of building our life, with clear intentions to achieve our
aims. This implies Sacred Art, and means to activate the ability to unify in a work of art, the spiritual magic
and at the same time, find a practical use in the modern world. Ladies and Maidens dwelling in both our
hearts and spirits are welcome. Come and meet your Magic Maiden. At the end of the workshop we will create
a powerful Magic Wheel of Renewal.

Materials needed:

(You may choose yours)

WORKSHOP 1: ARCHETYPES OF THE GODDESSES
Workshop with Silvia Selowsky (Chile), author of the book: "El Oráculo de las Diosas".
All goddesses dwell in us and our essence is made up from all of them. Their Integration in us irradiates to
the primal womb, reconnecting our contacts and life phases, and healing all  aspects. We connect to the
female archetypes to identify with them and recognize the inner powers of strength and balance we then
access.
Venue: Centro Español

WORKSHOP 2: ON WEAVING DESIRE
Workshop by Marisa Negri (Argentina); Poet, Teacher of Spanish, Literature and Latin, and Specialist in
Education and Art Therapy.
We will accompany a young maiden in a trip, while in search of her soul mate. Will her Prince be the answer
to all her worries? What will occur after the happy ending of a tale? How can fairy tales connect us with our
real desires? Be careful with what you wish, as this may come true.
WORKSHOP: La Morada de la Luna

WORKSHOP 3: Dancing with CHAK-ANNA, THE ÑUSTA, THE AWAKENING OF OUR INNER WARRIOR.
With Fractalia Warda, a sacred dancer.
Through ancient female dances, we will join the energies of yin and yang, in our own bodies to channel and
connect to the Ancient Fire of our tribe.
Venue: El Remanso

WORKSHOP 4: DAUGHTERS IN MADREPAZ TAROT CARDS, THE   ARCHETYPES OF THE INNER MAIDEN.
By Alicia Contursi (Mendoza- Argentins), Arts Graduate, Astrologist, Social Communicator, Writer and Poet.
Queens from every suit are goddesses who sacralize every element. The Daughters (who belong to the jacks)
focus on that role. They describe those who experience the energy of the Goddess from youth and portray a
sense of immaturity. They still need a deep learning. This workshop is both theoretical and practical; and
intends to deepen knowledge and contact through meditation, with the Archetype inside each of the Daughters.
Venue: Hotel Cerro Uritorco.
