Celebrate the Divine Feminine Message Board › EVENT ANNOUCEMENT--Pele, The Hawaiian Goddess of the Volcano, June 15
San Mateo, CA
Pele is the Hawaiian Goddess of the Volcano. Her home is Kilauea, an active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Because of her "fiery" nature which can be unpredictable and destructive, Pele is both respected and feared by the Hawaiians. Despite her capricious, undisciplined and almost wanton displays of emotions, Pele is also loved and revered. The molten lava spewed forth during her eruptions has the power to create new land. Therefore the Big Island of Hawaii is in a constant state of change.
Though Pele is well known, her sister Hi'iaka is less well-known. Hi'iaka is the counterpoint to Pele's fiery nature. She is the guardian of womanly rites and is a healer and brings beauty through the hula and her songs.
Join us for the In Her Name Circle as we celebrate the Divine Feminine in the manifestation of Pele. You will learn about the paradox of the Pele and Hi'iaka cycle and Hawaiian religious traditions, and you will hear several Hawaiian myths of Pele and Hi'iaka.
This sacred women's circle will be held Friday, June 15, at 7PM at the
Unitarian Universalist of San Mateo
300 E Santa Inez
San Mateo, CA 94401
