Panacea: Goddess of Healing
Join me on this New Moon as we meet Panacea, one of the five daughters of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and his wife Epione, who represented the care needed for recovery. Women are nurturing. Their unique ability to soothe and care for one another has been documented for centuries. In Greek mythology, Panacea is the goddess of Healing. She's an early example of women's essential role as healers.
Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine, had five daughters. His daughters followed in his footsteps, representing a facet of health and wellness. Panacea was considered the goddess of universal wellness and is depicted in Greek mythology as a healer. The word Panacea is a remedy for all ills or difficulties. Let us meet her this evening on this New Moon to commune in her Presence.
