This solemn season calls upon us to reflect on the year which is soon to be behind us.
What did you do that you’d do differently?
What are you proud of?
How did you “be” in 2015?
It’s my thought that we’re moving away from our millennial self-help culture and into one which is more about village-help. I see it as part of the great welcoming back of the Earth’s divine feminine gift to us, our ambiguous nature, that sacredness which there are no words for. It is a call to gather the tribes.
Language and excessive mental stimulation require balancing. The paradigm of the masculine requires it’s counterpart Queen in order to move us forward into a more compassionate and responsible existence. Women all around the world are demonstrating how to hold this energy, and how to manage the suffering of the world now that we are quite deep in the dialogue of what still hurts and what needs mending.
I’m so eternally grateful for the pathmakers who helped us along to this place, and to the ancestors who survived so that we might learn to thrive. I’m so grateful to the women who are paving the way to a more balanced experience, and to the men, too!
Have a beautiful weekend prior to the big holidays, Winter Solstice (or Summer Solstice if you are in the Southern Hemisphere!) and Christmas.
I’m excited to welcome back the Light of the Sun with you here North of the equator, aren’t you?
Join me for the last year of SouLodge for three sessions of restorative soulwork with Wolf, Hawk and Owl while there’s still a huge discount over the per-session price. Use SOULODGE20 to save even more!
Sabbatical, you say?
I’m afraid so. And simultaneously elated! Funny how we can hold both, eh? Whatever will I do?? I will be writing, writing, and more writing, as well as painting. Getting it down in words and images, as I can. So much has come to light over the years, and the information tends to become dusty and forgotten on hard drives and in legal pads which litter my every corner and nook. I want to go out on a beautiful high note-so Wolf, Hawk and Owl stepped up to see us through our SouLodge circles in our last year together.
In 2017, I’ll be taking a writing sabbatical and not leading SouLodge around the Medicine Wheel as I will have done nearly 40 times when I put myself into semi-retirement. While I have an immediate sense of sadness about this, (because we gather so beautifully together in virtual circle), my path is slowly diverging in order to reorganize my life schedule around my new environment and this piece of Earth’s gorgeous demands for less time online and more time with the animals and the land.
I’m at the moment co-writing a book with a soul sister that’s an important piece of both of our legacies, and has been asking to be written for some time now. We’ve determined that it can’t wait any longer because the world needs it!
Thank you so much for your support and encouragement as I step away from something I’ve held so close over the years with so many of you. Please do make a point to come to this beautiful land in the Summer and celebrate our good medicine in the flesh!
