The Temple's gates are opening.  

The Ancient Temples were a place of remembrance where high priestesses would channel the divine feminine; to heal, to love, to reignite the divinity in whoever would have the honour to sit and receive them in their connection and embodiment of the mystery.  

We are remembering these lineages. The Temples are landing. Dancing Eros is one of them.  

During this 10 day initiation we will dive into the temple arts and how the feminine in all her forms wants to express through us.  

As a collective, we will open ourselves up to expression of our true nature and essence through story telling, poetry, theatre, dance, music, singing and touch.
This initiation is about shifting out of old unsustainable paradigms of pushing, controlling and stressing, in order to create in the world and rest into our being. From there we have the potential to create a new world inside and out because what comes through us is in its most authentic and pure form.  

In this potent place, we are no longer continuing to seek more and more processes and practices of healing and fixing but live and move in the world with the true recognition of who we are and what we are here for.  

Over the past years the Dancing Eros body of work has been preparing us individually and collectively to land and reclaim the Temple of Eros for this purpose..  

This annual initiation will be held only once a year by the three Oracles of Dancing Eros.  

Vanessa, Laura, and Shaney are your Oracles for the Temple Eros 2020.  

Each been deeply initiated into the feminine mysteries for over a decade and many lives before.  

This a rare and special opportunity to come and be part of the beginning of a new era where the ancient and the future merge.  


The location for TEMPLE EROS 2020 is in the magical island of Ikaria in Greece.  

The Ancient Temples were based in various mystical sites around the world and Greece was the original land of the Priestesses and the Oracles.  

The Island of Ikaria is widely known for its wild beauty.  

The Temple of Artemis has been anchored to this land sine the 6th Century BC. Artemis, the Greek Goddess of the hunt, wilderness, wild animals, the Moon and the protector of sailors and hunters is an honoured Goddess of the Island.  

Ikaria is also a famed island of hot springs, folklore and some of the longest living inhabitants in the world.  

The location of our Initiation will be at The Egg Seminar House with shared and private accommodation will be at the nearby Karras' Star Hotel. 


This event is for those who deeply feel the call to be part of this. Beyond the mind or logical understanding there is a stirring inside and a pull of you to join us.  

This initiation will be like no other and is for those who are truly ready to step into the unknown and surrender into the feminine mysteries and your path as a creator in service to them.  

This initiation is for those of you who are ready to go beyond focusing and working solely on your own inner process and personal wounds and to move into utilising the potency and power of your own life force for pure creation.

We are calling in souls who can see beyond their stories and patterns of smallness, unworthiness, separation and contraction.  




The feminine archetypes will be the inspiration for our exploration and the muse for our creation within the time we spend together.  

Each day we will open a different portal of creation inspired by these potent and primordial feminine energies.

The archetypes are instinctual aspects of our psyche and collective consciousness and extremely powerful because they allow us to access and open sometimes hidden channels of our expression that we may not have access to within our own limited identity and personal conditioning.  

This initiation is to open the gateways of your voice, body, sex and creativity, so you can express fully.
