Spring Equinox Rituals 2020
March 19th Women's Moon Circle at Rare Bird in Oakland, CA
We are honoring the new life of Spring with a Giveaway. This ceremony highlights our interconnectivity and feelings of synchronicity and gratitude. We will discuss the Native American and other cultural roots of this kind of ritual and experience the spirit of giving and sacred connection.
March 22nd at Radiance Wellness Center in Lafayette, CA
The Spring Goddess will be our Muse and our Guide at this gathering. We will spend the evening in her presence, calling her in to show us her way. She will speak to us of new life and show us what seeds want to grow within. We will do a shamanic journey to meet her and we will adorn ourselves in her bounty using flowers to weave in our deepest wishes, shining our light upon the seeds each of us wants to manifest. Join us as we welcome the Spring Goddess into our circle and find out what truly balances our spirit on this day of equal sunlight and darkness.
Shamanic Journey Workshops
Experience the art of shamanic journey in a potent small group setting. We share our collective wisdom in these circles as shamanic work is for the benefit of the community.You'll learn about shamanism, take your own shamanic journey, and uncover ways to interpret the information you receive. Each shamanic journey workshop is based on a theme of awakening and growing.
A Blessingway is a ritual that marks a rite of passage. We gather together to witness and and support crossing through of portal into a new state of being. This is a transformational path where the group honors the courage and strength it takes to move yourself from one stage to the next. While the community shows up as a supportive weaving of support, each person must walk through their own gateway alone in their own wholeness. I create customized Blessingways for life events such as having a child, getting married, changing careers, graduating from school or a course, entering adulthood, coming of age, leaving home, and any other initiation.
Women's Moon Circles
Women's Circles are a place to come as you are and experience the deep communion, joys, sorrows, connection, and laughter that can be present in a group of women. Many women crave the sisterhood, healing, and sense of community that comes from being together and witnessing each other. Throughout time, women have gathered to support, heal, and lift each other up through life's challenges. All women are invited to join my ongoing Moon Circles held monthly to honor the cycles of the moon and the seasons in a way that enriches our lives. We always celebrate the Autumn Equinox, Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, and Summer Solstice with ways to deepen our connection to the Nature. Some women come each month and others drop in when they can. Each month has a new theme and the gathering includes writing, sharing, meditation or shamanic journey, and an art and ritual that correlates with our practice.
Circles are held at Rare Bird Boutique in Oakland, CA.
Seasonal Holy Day Workshops
Contact me to create your own ritual. Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox are powerful gateway days in our year. Each season ushers in a new cycle and we learn from Mother Nature what is called forth from us as the wheel spins. We learn from these timeless ongoing cycles of life that life continues, changes form, and the light always returns. We always honor these days in my monthly moon circles and I love to create special days for your private group.
