    Light of my Soul

    I AM THE LIGHT OF MY SOUL By Susan Morgaine In an uncertain world, one of the most important things we can do, as women, is to develop a soothing self-care practice. We were created by the Goddess, in Her image, and we carry a spark of Her radiant love for us. It is unfortunate, then, that the world does not see us as Goddess, nor do many even see Her, and so women, in our current society, are seen as “less than” we really and truly are. We must remember that, as Her daughters, we carry Her in our heart and, in so doing, project Her presence out into…

    Station of Confrontation

    The Station of Confrontation By Jhenah Telyndru The Station of Confrontation of the Avalonian Cycle of Healing is aligned with the festival of Gwyl Mair (Imbolc) in the Cycle of the Sun. In the Cycle of the Moon, Confrontation holds correspondence with the Dark Moon phase. This stage of the journey requires us to recognize the truth of our core issues — old wounds, active fears, embraced limitations. There is a sage saying: “That which is unconscious, controls us.” Once we see that which lies hidden in the unconscious, we can understand what has quietly been motivating our actions and guiding our choices without our knowledge, causing us to view people…

    Darkness in a Time of Light

    Darkness in a Time of Light By Susan Morgaine This is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year, is it not? We have the Winter Solstice, the longest night, celebrating the re-birth of the Sun; Christmas, the birth of the Christ child, bringing light into the world; Hanukkah, the Hebrew Festival of Lights, lasting eight nights, celebrating the rededication of the Holy Temple, and Kwanzaa, the African American Light Festival lasting for seven nights. celebrating the seven principles of Kwanzaa. Ironically, it is the Dark Half of the Year, a time for hunkering down, hibernating, sinking deep into yourself, descending into the Cauldron. It is a…

Breath by breath, continue holding your attention on the air as it flows into your body . You may find that at times your attention wanders, thoughts and feelings may drift into view distracting…

    A Visit From Gwynn ap Nudd Or ‘Twas the Night Before Solstice by Natalie Reed Upon the sacred Tor I sit A fire of Oak, Ash, Thorn is lit I close my eyes, ask what I seek Wisdom is not for the meek Tales of mystic hero lore Memories from the days of yore Look to the sky, what do I see? A spectre looking back at me Wild dark hair and eyes of fire A countenance meant to inspire Antlers crowned His noble head ‘Twas Gwynn ap Nudd, Lord of the Dead! Upon a huge black horse He rode The stallions’ eyes a ghastly glow A pack of hounds…

Find for yourself a comfortable,warm position seated or lying down, closing your eyes, take deep cleansing breath in and release. Now take in another gentle cleansing breath in and again release.

Then begin to imagine, begin to visualize a glowing circle of light…

    Renewing Branwen

    RENEWING BRANWEN SPEAKING WITH BRANWEN’S VOICE by Susan Morgaine   I know how hard it can be to have the ones you love disagree and fight, to know there is not much you can do, and yet know you must try. Because I know that, above all, Peace and Love are worth the tears and the blood you put into it. I know the heartbreak of talking to one, and then the other, to have them meet, find common ground But, yet, I know there are times when it is in vain, and at the end……. I know what you are left with – the sadness, the broken heart, the…

    Inner Child; Inner Queen (part 2)

    Meditation Journey for Healing your Inner Child by Lori Feldmann Sit in a calm, relaxing space. Take nine deep breaths, and let go of the cares and worries of the day. Continue this cycle of breathing until you have come into a relaxed and peaceful state. Find yourself in your childhood home. (If you had more than one, use whichever place you identify most with your childhood). Really visualize the space, and make it as real as possible. Pull as much detail as you can from memory. When you have made the home as real as possible, find yourself knowing with your entire being that your younger self – the…

    Inner Child; Inner Queen (part 1)

    by Lori Feldmann I recently had a friend remark to me that “you sure do use the word Sovereignty a lot”. I laughed, because she was right. But I’m unapologetic for my overuse of the word, and I think it lies at the core of what we are trying to do on this personal path of growth that we are following in the Sisterhood. All of us, as women in this world, have varying degrees of a lifetime of being told what to do, how to act, what to want. And we are all trying to undo the pain of that – so what more of an ultimate goal are…

    What is Body Sovereignty?

    By Sydney Bell I describe my work as supporting women in reclaiming Body Sovereignty.   You could simply say that I work with people to help them develop a ‘better body image’ and you wouldn’t be wrong, that is definitely part of it.  But over the years I’ve gravitated to the term ‘Body Sovereignty’ because I feel it speaks more to the depth and breadth of this work and the radical nature of resisting cultural pressure to engage in body loathing.  Instead ‘Body Sovereignty’ speaks to a peaceful and positive relationship with your body. The theme of  ‘sovereignty’ provides an opportunity to pause and look a little deeper… We start…
