Ancient Greece Online Conference
W/ Unlimited Replay Access
When we think of the Gods and Goddesses, Mount Olympus and its uncanny clan of ancients springs immediately to mind! We are excited to invite you to a deep exploration of the mythical, magical and practical history of Ancient Greece and its city states at our upcoming Ancient Greece Online Conference. What was the origin of the Greek pantheon of Gods? Is there a connection in Ancient Greek history to the Yuga Cycles spoken about by ancient cultures across the globe? What were the great secrets of the Eleusinian Mysteries and their mother-daughter goddesses, Demeter and Persephone? How were these sacred rites related to divine conception and birth? Who were these people and the philosophers that came from these Greek City states? Is there a connection between the Oracle at Delphi and the Pleiadian constellation? Who exactly was the Oracle at Delphi, and what was their life like? Our presenters will take you on a journey of exploration that bridges the dimensions and offers fresh insight as to why Ancient Greece is relevant for us to know about today. This and more will be explored at this unpreceded and exciting online event, which is part of our ongoing Ancient Civilization Series.

The Eleusinian Mysteries celebrated the mother-daughter goddesses Demeter and Persephone and forever transformed the lives of initiates, making them unafraid of death. Scholars have puzzled for more than a century over “what really happened” in these famous rites, which participants were sworn not to discuss. Dr. Rigoglioso offers a vision –– based on the missing “piece” of divine birth –– that makes sense of them at long last, exposing surprising yet well-grounded findings. In this provocative presentation, she will explain that initiates of the Eleusinian Mysteries experienced a ritualized “rape/abduction” of Persephone into the underworld. She will show us how medicines and special implements shocking to the Christian fathers were used to facilitate the experience, and she will illuminate why men had to “become” women to enter into the sacred knowledge of Demeter and Persephone. She will also help us understand the culminating ritual as a divine birth sex rite between the priestess and a god, one designed to incarnate a “new” Dionysus who would become the future king.
Marguerite Rigoglioso (pronounced REGAL-yo-zo, for you non-Italians!), Ph.D., is the founding director of Seven Sisters Mystery School and a scholar/practitioner of the ancient Mediterranean mystery traditions. The world's foremost authority on virgin birth, she is the author of The Mystery Tradition of Miraculous Conception: Mary and the Lineage of Virgin Births, as well as The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece, and Virgin Mother Goddesses of Antiquity. These groundbreaking books reveal an entire suppressed history of holy women who engaged in the practice of divine conception throughout the ancient Mediterranean world, and cast Mother Mary in a completely new light. As a teacher and mentor with Seven Sisters Mystery School, Dr. Rigoglioso works one-on-one and with groups to help people develop their deep intuition, their unique spiritual path, and their sacred careers. She offers evolutionary online courses such as The Mother Mary Mystery Teachings, the Priestess of the Dove Oracle Training, the Holy Womb Chakra Teachings, the Divine Birth Mysteries Audio Series, the Awakening to Our Fairy Kin course, and more. As a scholar, Dr. Rigoglioso has taught unique courses in religion, humanities, and women's spirituality at various colleges and universities in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Dominican University of California, the California Institute of Integral Studies, Sonoma State University, and Sofia University. She was also a founding faculty member of the former MA in Myth, Cosmology, and the Sacred at Canterbury Christ Church University in the UK. Her research on female deities and women's religious leadership in the ancient Mediterranean world and beyond has appeared in various anthologies and journals, including the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, where her paper on the cult of Demeter and Persephone in Sicily received an honorable mention for the New Scholar Award.

Western medicine and psychotherapy originated in ancient Greece over 3,300 years ago using holistic methodologies combined with dream questing under the guidance of Asklepios, the god of healing. It resulted in thousands of "miracle cures" to intractable conditions of body, mind, heart, and spirit. The Greeks also used theatre as communal healing ritual, oracles for life guidance, and early philosophy’s dialectical method. These practices are the foundations of archetypal psychology and the modern depth therapies and are available to us today.
The ancients taught the key to healing is restoration of the soul and re-aligning with the cosmic order, the Logos. Their practices are especially effective in enabling catharsis, transforming identity, providing life guidance, revealing destiny, reconnecting to the sacred, and providing direct healing or prescriptions through the facilitation of "big dreams."
We will explore soul medicine and healing through dream pilgrimages and incubations, sacred theatre, and philosophy. We will study ancient sanctuary practices that are the blueprints of healing today and seek big dreams and oracles for holistic healing and life guidance.
