Women gathered together for International Women's Day drawing energy and strength from one another at Goddess Rising, a festival for girls and women on March 8.

Thanks to event organizers Rachel Cline and Tanya Malcolm, Goddess Rising has gracefully become an annual event in Fernie. “We'll fuel each others passions, dreams, and visions, and together we will become Goddess Rising.”

For over one hundred years women have gathered to celebrate International Women's Day. The pampering sessions in the Fernie Secondary School lobby mezzanine were hugely popular. Massage by Julie Gallant, mini manicure and pedicures by Fresh 10 Nails, hair styling by Lysh Hair Salon, and tarot reading with Typsy Gypsy were fully booked and much appreciated.

It was full day of empowering workshops, including an introduction to aromatherapy with Michelle Cubin from Healing Hollow. Ladies were treated to yoga in the library via a video link. The wine tasting with Emily Sauve was held at the BC Wine Shop. The silent auction had an abundance of goods and services to bid on.

There were two youthful dance performances by Creative Energy Arts Factory dancers. Musician Britt Meierhofer, sang and played her guitar and played at Infinitea T-Bar and Boutique later that evening. The Burn Betties Burlesque group performed an authentic hula to finish off the Goddess Rising event.
