Veleda (Celtic shamanic seeress), artist, history-keeper and cultural healer A founding mother of the Goddess resurgence, Max has participated in women's Goddess circles since 1971. Roaming the land, dancing and chanting to the goddesses is her passion. Her art has appeared in countless publications of the feminist spirituality movement, and in her own Witch Dream Comix (1975). Her paintings and drawings--The Wisdom Scroll; Womb Healing; The World Tree--adorn many altars and walls. Max Dashú teaches global women's history and spiritual heritages, using images and working mainly in the oral tradition. In 1970 she founded the Suppressed Histories Archives to research female spheres of power, shamanic arts, goddess veneration, mother-right, and the origins of domination. From her collection of over 15,000 slides, she created 100 visual presentations, which she has shown to all kinds of audiences over the decades, helping to shape today's reclamation of female-positive sacred heritages. In 2008 Max published her acclaimed dvd Women's Power in Global Perspective. Her posters Sacra Vulva and Female Icons, Ancestral Mothers draw together little-known images to show that the Sacred Female truly is global. Her forthcoming book The Secret History of the Witches looks at priestesses, oracles, healers, and goddesses, and addresses What Happened in Europe. Max is now working on a second movie, Woman Shaman, and teaching an online course on this subject of medicine women, prophets, drummers and dreamers.
