Crete Ariadnean Pilgrimage 2025

Crete Ariadnean Pilgrimage with Katinka Soetens

Come and follow the memory of ancestral Goddess loving people and Her priestesses, as well as the signs of the Goddess, in the sacred landscape of Crete.

The Late Neolithic and Bronze Age Ariadnean civilisation of Crete was the last pre – patriarchal culture in Europe, honouring life, beauty, women and men and living in the ways of Goddess.

This fertile land still holds the mysteries and offers a wonderful way to connect back into the Ways of the Priestess through the reclaimed libation rituals, sacred dance and symbolic movement, oracle tradition and deep underworld journey of the labyrinth.

The Cretan civilisation was abundant, amazingly advanced in arts and science, medicine and craft, agriculture and sea faring. The Ariadnean Goddess culture of Crete at this time was gift economy based, free trading and peaceful for over a 1000 years.

The beautiful landscape of Crete holds memory and allows easy access to the resonance of these ancestral times, temples and culture.

We will follow the memory of ancestral Goddess loving people and Her priestesses, as well as the signs of the Goddess, in the sacred landscape of Crete.

On this journey we will dance and create rituals in Her ancient temples, we will open to Her voice in magical Cretan nature, visit sacred caves and labyrinth, find beaches to relax into Her presence and connect deeply to the ancient Goddess Priestesses in priestess graves. We will explore Ariadnean temples, sites, musea and art as well as enjoy sunshine, beautiful sea and delicious food.

Throughout our tour, we will connect to our ancient heritage: of love between men and women, of priestesses and empowerment, of wisdom, sacredness of the body, sacredness of all life, and wisdom of the Goddess.

Come celebrate life together, with elemental ceremony and deep connection to the Ancestors and Goddess of this sacred land.

We’ll stay in simple, shared room accommodation, some of which have breakfast included, in some of the most delightful, and less touristic places in Eastern Crete.

Further specifications:

  • English spoken tour, reasonable mobility essential.
  • Walking sandals, and sun cream use advised.
