A goddess party is a gathering that celebrates what it means to be a woman. It aims to empower women and uplift the female mind and spirit. Its goal is to develop a culture of sisterhood instead of competition. It wants women to journey towards their inner goddess and find peace within themselves.
They are also fun celebrations that are good to incorporate in many different occasions. In fact, it has increasingly become popular as a central theme for many women-dominated occasions such as bachelorette parties, birthdays, new years, baby showers, etc. It is, after all, a celebration of a woman's transition from, for example, maiden to maid (for bachelorette parties).

Who Is The Goddess?
In our myths and legends, goddesses are women of remarkable beauty and power. They represent ideals such as purity, wit, charm, peace, abundance, etc. They existed long ago and even lived among men for a time.
Nowadays, goddesses refer to women who desire to find inner peace, lead an authentic, honest life, as well as empower their feminine self. If you want to look for the goddess in you, try to find the truly unique strength of femininity.
A goddess is someone who listens to and accepts her own feelings and emotions, thereby finding inner peace.
This seems like a tall order for a simple bachelorette party. But since we're women, we're all here for it anyway. In fact, you probably want to throw a goddess party of your own.
How To Make a Goddess Party
Here are some tips on how to host your very own goddess party:
1. Identify The Occasion of the Goddess Party
You cannot throw a goddess party without first identifying the occasion. Since goddess parties aim to celebrate and honor women, they can be part of almost all events. These events could include someone's birthday, bachelorette, a new year's eve, solstice, baby shower, etc.
Once you have identified the occasion, you can then think about how to incorporate the ideas into the celebration. In addition, you also need to think about how to bring out the transition as an important part of the event. It is, after all, one of the most important things we are celebrating.
2. Choose Your Goddess Circle
You don't want anyone who is disruptive or overly cynical in your group. Try to choose your circle by being careful about who you invite. Include only women who have a similar attitude about life to yours. Make sure they are open to this new kind of experience.
In addition, you also need to be clear about what the party is all about, and what you plan to do at the party. This should clear things up for them, as well as get them excited.t
3. Decide On Your Dress Code
If you like, you can ask your friends to come dressed as their inner goddesses. However, if you want to be more specific, you can also assign them a specific goddess. Make sure to be inclusive about your list of goddesses. So include African, Native American, Asian, and Latin Goddesses, instead of just sticking to one skin color.
If you like, you can also make it an 'ideal' goddess theme by assigning them goddesses for truth, beauty, courage, love, abundance, passion, etc. Once you have assigned it to them, let your friends interpret how to best represent them.
4. Choose Empowering Music
As we know, music sets the mood and the overall vibe of a certain event. If you want to host a goddess party, you have to choose women empowering music- songs that welcome being a nurturer, a survivor, and a beautiful, powerful woman.
You can also dance to the music. Let it flow through you, and have fun. Leave your inhibitions at the door. You can even have a drumming circle to set the pace and beat, and other instruments, of course.
5. Dance To The Music
Let the music lift you up. If you feel like dancing, swaying, twirling, skipping, swaying- do so. Do whatever feels best. Do everything that empowers you and makes you feel like you can rule the world. Be one with the music and move your body to it.
In addition to dancing, you can also ask your fellow goddesses to lead a yoga lesson or a belly dance, whatever they feel comfortable showing. If they consent, it means that they believe your setting to be a safe place for empowerment.
6. Serve Empowering Drinks
If you can, come up with a custom drink for the occasion. Make sure it's something healthy, fruity, and fun. Pour your empowering drink over ice and serve. If they ask what the name of the drink is, you can let them know that it is a crowd favorite called Athena the Wise.
Celebrating an occasion with an empowering drink and a good toast is a great way to start an event. It should become a success after that.
One of the most uplifting things you can do at a goddess party is the sharing of sentiments. It is as effective as a therapy, although way cheaper.
You can do this by asking your fellow goddesses to bring something meaningful (in a positive way) to them from home. It can be a throw pillow with their favorite quote in it. It can even be something they created from scratch, like crochet or cross-stitch.
Gather them in a circle and then ask them to share/ express their sentiments. Maybe you can ask them why they brought whatever they brought, as well as what the significance of those things are.
You can also set up a 'gifting circle'. If you choose this, though, make sure to set the parameters in advance and the theme.
8. Set The Stage
If you want to empower women, you should make sure that your venue is up the way it's supposed to achieve your goal. The feel of the space should resonate with your intent for women to support each other.
You can set the stage and the space by lighting candles (scented/unscented), diffusing essential oils, hanging some fairy lights, arranging for a herbal tea offering, and decorating the place with fresh flowers and lots of green plants.
9. About The Food
Even though there are no restrictions on what to eat during a goddess party, some considerations must still be made towards elements of the Earth, like serving only vegetables and fruits or deciding on a healthy or animal-cruelty menu.
If you want, you can even ground yourselves better by going outside to cook over fires. This way, everyone gets to help everyone else prepare dinner while sharing wisdom.
10. Be Worldly
You can also think about putting together a certain celebration of different perspectives, cultures, food, and traditions. You can start this one by incorporating it into the setting up of the place, the music, the food, the drinks, etc.
For example, you will only play music made by powerful African women and serve food that originated from Native American tradition. You can also include serving a signature drink for every significant city in the world.
Aside from these, you can also re-enact different traditions or customs and set up a henna station or an angel card reading station. This way, your fellow goddesses can decide on their diversion.
11. Hold Each Others' Vision
One of the most remarkable things that happen at goddess parties is this part. It makes the event more powerful and meaningful than the average get-together. How?
Your guests will have to stand and share the lessons she learned from this year, as well as her positive intentions for next year. Everyone else will follow and will have to hold their vision. It is extremely empowering.
12. Embrace Your Sexuality
If you want to empower your fellow goddesses, you should try making them feel desirable. You can even encourage them to embrace their sexuality instead of being ashamed of it.
If you're hosting a goddess party, try to arrange for some fresh, unique take on how to encourage sexual freedom by including pole dancing classes, lingerie parties, towel parties, or boudoir photoshoots. If this doesn't make women feel powerful and sexy, I don't know what will.
13. Ask For Help From Other Goddesses
Since these events encourage acceptance, togetherness, and support, you should ask for some help from your goddess friends. Once they consent, you can then assign them tasks. If they're real goddesses, they'll be very happy to assist you.
This is about women's empowerment. So don't go at it alone, and try to go easy on yourself.
Why Are Goddess Parties Popular?
Goddess parties are popular because it is a way to celebrate the spiritual journey. This means that a goddess has to find fulfillment within herself. She has to figure it all out without turning to vanity, greed, lust to sustain her. She has to learn to accept that she is what she is and acknowledge that her emotions are valid.
Women meditate to connect to their inner goddess to clear their heads from distractions. This should help bring about peace of mind and of heart. This, in turn, helps lower stress levels, decrease heart rate, build self-confidence, as well as increase creativity.
It is a way to connect with nature. This is especially important for people who spend most of their time inside a building or an office. They need to be reminded of the beauty of nature, as well as the importance of knowing where they came from.
An outdoor goddess party will be extremely helpful. It could potentially allow the goddess to walk barefoot on the ground, grass, or beach; be still with nature; be active outside by running, biking, swimming, etc. This is an excellent way to get out of one's head.
