Woman is by nature a shaman. 

- Maria Czaplicka (1914) Aboriginal Siberia: A Study in Social Anthropology

A lecture series on the historical context of women's religious experience

in ancient Europe and the Near & Middle East

In an academic and social climate that gives precedence to the history of war, conquest, and the lives of kings, many have begun to ask the question, “where were the women?” These lecture series hope to begin to answer that question.

You will be presented with some of the roles, activities, beliefs and practices of ancient women from Europe from approximately 60,000 - 1500 BC, who were once the intermediaries between the people and the gods. Their roles were considered essential in the maintenance of harmony, both social and ecological, and by uncovering their wisdom, we may be able to contribute to restoring balance in our own world during these troubled times.

These sessions are part lecture, part experiential practice and explore the worldview, teachings and practices of these ancient women.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Recordings will be sent out manually via email within 24 hours after purchase. 




A fantastic informative lecture on these ancient mysterious women and what we can learn from the evidence left behind in the land and through surviving artefacts. Gabriela delivers all this with humility and forensic scholastic dedication, mixed with her keen intuition which sets her apart. Plus a deep dive exploration of direct connection with these women through spiritual practice. LOVED IT!!!

Gabriela's teachings were profound and intellectually rigorous, and the practical elements very well guided. I will join future lectures!

The most amazing, thorough and deeply informative event. I was captivated, thank you!

Thank you for sharing your work and research last night. Always good to touch base with beginnings and access our bone deep knowings. And yes, I agree with you....leaving our sacred tools out in the elements as if they were nothing at that archeological site is so very sad. How much history has been worked into those tools through the hands of women, how many stories told, songs sung, bellies filled. Yet another example of how much work that needs to be done to restore balance to the world.

Gabriela’s lecture was fascinating and incredibly informative, and the journey afterwards eye-opening and soul-affirming (to say the least!). I look forward to attending many more sessions with her in the future. Highly recommended.

I finally had time to watch it this morning and it was great -- very powerful. I had a strong experience in the practice section, and your scholarship helped open up new understandings that will help with the novel I'm writing. Thank you!

What a great recording that was!  I will be buying the Palaeolithic and Neolithic recordings in the near future.  The shamanic journey at the end was very evocative and deep.
