1,000 Goddesses on the National Mall: 10/22


Washington, D.C., September 29, 2016– The 1000 Goddesses Gathering on Saturday, October 22, 2016 is a visionary Wisdom and Compassion Gathering to transcend politics. Washington DC has never seen an occasion like this before. The free event will take place at Constitution Gardens west of the Washington Monument from 11 am to 5:30 pm.

The Gathering is based upon a Tibetan myth that when 1000 Goddesses or Taras gather, the divine feminine will rebirth through their combined energies, and the tone of the planet will shift from one of fear to compassion. The event will convene women, along with men as Sacred Guardians and members of the LGBTQI community, to bring healing Divine Feminine energies into Washington, D.C. so that they may ripple from there throughout the world. Corollary events are being planned in several cities in Mexico, France, Montreal, Toronto, Mumbai and throughout the United States. The numbers continue to grow. All will be linked in with the Gathering in Washington DC.


Elizabeth Kucinich will be offering welcoming remarks to open the Gathering. There will be ceremony, dancing, singing, sharing of grief, forgiveness, and visions for a beautiful future via participatory art spaces—along with joy & gratitude and personal pledges for action.

A nine-foot goddess statue will anchor the Gathering with healing stations and altars around her. In addition there will be chocolate stations around the site as every goddess needs her chocolate. Attendees will plant potent seeds at this auspicious Gathering to shift away from the destructive trajectory of our current socioeconomic systems to herald a positive arc for humanity to support our beautiful New World. The visionary of this monumental event, Mare Cromwell commented, “Now is the time for deep healing and to bring sacred balance back to Earth!”

This Wisdom and Compassion Gathering is founded on the ancient tradition of Wisdom Gatherings where elders come together around Sacred Fire in council to teach, tell stories, tune into the wisdom of the fire and maintain peace and balance in their village. 

Gaia Mystic and award-winning author, Mare Cromwell, initially received the spiritual call to organize the event late in the fall of 2015. The original plan was for a large Gathering to take place in 2017 at a rural retreat center in Maryland. However, in late July she received very specific spiritual instructions that the event needed to happen in Washington. D.C., before the elections this fall.


“This Gathering is not about any political platform or candidates. It is about invoking the Divine Feminine to help bring wisdom and compassion back into our chaotic culture to mid-wife a beautiful New World,” shared Mare Cromwell.

The 1000 Goddesses Gathering event has partnered with the following sponsors to make this event possible: Hestia Gaea Foundation, Roberta Reeves – Women of Wisdom, The Oracle Institute, Conscious Living TV and Spirited Woman.
