For New Englanders, my friend Helen recently recommended what she says is an excellent group: The Women's Well, in West Concord, MA. They offer courses and workshops in women’s spirituality, open equinox and solstice celebrations, and all women are welcome at their monthly "Circle of Circles," which meets on the first Monday of each month (except when holidays conflict), 7:00-9:00 p.m. “In circle, we share stories, make connections with the seasonal cycles of the Earth and invite our true voices to speak and be heard.”

Here's one of their workshops, about the Inuit Goddess Sedna:

"Sedna, Our New Planet and a Call to Deep Transformation

"Sedna, the Inuit goddess of the deep sea, is also the name of our newest planet (identified in March 2004). What meaning does this ancient goddess have for us, and what is the significance of the new planet named after her? In this workshop, we will explore the story of Sedna, the young Inuit maiden who seeks to follow her own path, is betrayed by her father, and goes through a deep transformational process in order to finally come into her true nature. We will also use astrology to locate this new planet in our birth charts and to see how she is influencing our lives as well as shaping the larger global cycle. Working with ritual, art and shamanic journeying, we will allow Sedna to teach us the wisdom of the deep and guide us to our deepest selves."

I know this goddess. She is awesome. However, astronomers are trying to demote her because they can't afford health insurance for another planet. Lately she has been called a "non-planetary orbiting object."
