Excitement Is Building!

The sun sinks lower and lower to the horizon and begins to pause in her dance. Around the northern hemisphere, people draw inward and reach out to one another.
Our Circle of Woman (and friends) are making final touches with great excitement: readers and singers are polishing our lines, we're designing the altar with love and care, we are full of love and joy.
Please join us on Saturday evening. Arrive plenty early to be sure you're not turned away for lack of space.
Merry meet and merry part, and merry meet again.
Blessed be!

Wheel of the Year

The eight celebrations of the Wheel of the Year mark the cycle of Nature in the Northern Hemisphere.
Mother Earth is alive and sentient, both matter and consciousness. She holds out her heart to us, inviting us to deep partnership. We are of the Earth, not separate from her. Her rhythms are our rhythms. When we live without conscious connection to the Earth, we create stress and disharmony for ourselves and for all life on this planet.
One of the most accessible ways to engage this cycle is by aligning with the Wheel of the Year, the annual cycle of changing seasons. By observing the eight sacred holidays or festivals which mark the Wheel of the Year, we can begin to tune deeply to this foundational cycle and learn to work with rather than against the natural currents of life on Mother Earth.
