With an irreligious and unwavering devotion to the Divine, this nomadic, mystical bard and lone wolf lives and loves to share her gifts with the open hearted and open minded. She delights in running with other wolves when Love guides her and is ignited and brought to peace by the wildest of storms as much as by the light of the moon. Also after much resistance to and arguing with reality, the consequential suffering and a deep unquenchable longing to know the true meaning of this word, Love, has learnt to embrace and dance more freely with the darkest of nights.
Living a simple life, mostly alone, off grid, in the wilds, the ancient sacred sites, forgotten woodlands and sea shores ~ singing to, writing to, talking to, playing music to, her best beloved, whom she calls 'She'. Rehearsing and praying that even more poetry and song be entrusted to her, to share with those, who, like herself, long to be nourished by the fearlessly loving medicine of 'She', The Mother of All Mothers, who writes and performs through her with such High Grace.
Venus founded the Reclaim Love movement in 2001. This was in response to Valentine's Day commercialisation of Love. Venus insists that, "Love is not a commodity...now more than ever we need to draw on that strength inside ourselves to stay Fearlessly Loving." Venus' Reclaim Love event continues to this day with an annual world peace meditation and street party on the nearest Saturday to Valentine's Day.
Venus is currently excitedly working on a new album, book and show, all to be released in December 2019.
“Powerful guiding words....good”
Sabina and Michael D. Higgins, Mrs and Mr President of Ireland
“...it was one of the most memorable artistic experiences of my entire life time, and I weigh my words."
Pierre Pradervand, Author of The Gentle Art of Blessing
“Venus CúMara has a voice. You can trust her view. She means what it is she writes. She walks the path of the spirit. Her eyes have been open, I'd say since the day she came into this world. There are stories upon stories behind the poems and it truly is her integrity that adds power to her poetry - she has been there. She is there. Just listen to the poems with all the pain of your day and you'll only feel better for listening.”
Liam O'Maonlai, Artist, Musician, Hothouse Flowers
“Listening to Venus' poetry is like being warmly welcomed to swim in an ocean of devotion. She is a pure channel of universal love with a light joyful spirit that warms the heart.”
Naomi Francis, Organiser of Bhakti Fest UK
“Poetry was something I thought was for other people, however in Venus' inspirational workshop I found there was a poet inside of me.”
Angela, Poetry Workshop Attendee
“All my negative judgements and expectations about poetry disappeared and instead I found something in me I never knew I had and I am forever grateful.”
Natasha, Poetry Workshop Attendee
“I really liked your poems, especially the one “Have you heard the great news”. I listened to your album on the drive home, it was sooooooo relaxing! I hope to see you again one day.”
Maya Carveth, Aged 9
It's full focus behind the scenes to birth the powerful new album, the overdue book and an inspirational new and empowering show for women and men alike to raise The Divine Feminine to Her throne in You.
All to be released in Winter Solstice, December 2019.
