    The Mirror Pool: Sights and Insights – Calling The Barge

    by Seer Matron Elisa Greetings as we look ahead to 2022, Sisters! Although the Avalonian new year, having begun at Calan Gaeaf, is well underway, it is impossible not to acknowledge that January is, for most of the world, the month that heralds fresh starts and the turning of the page on the past and looking forward to the calendar year ahead. We are now in the third moon in the Avalonian Cycle of Revealing, the Moon of Transformation. I personally love that this moon typically falls in January since January already lends itself to being a time for new beginnings. This moon, in this month, also gives us the…

    The Mirror Pool: Sights and Insights – Hearthkeeper

    by Seer Matron Elisa Greetings, Sisters! Riding the wave of last month’s full moon, the Moon of Initiation (the first moon in the Avalonian Cycle of Revealing), we now welcome the next moon, the Moon of Distillation, and draw a new card from the Avalonian Oracle deck to guide us. We also continue our work with Ceridwen. Ah, Ceridwen. Each of our Avalonian Goddesses has moons that she resides over throughout the year. Ceridwen’s moons can be the most challenging of the Cycle, as I’ve experienced them. Of course, difficult and even tragic events can occur in our lives throughout the course of any moons throughout the year; but I have found that…

    30 Day SOA Challenge – 1

    Editor’s Note: This 30 Day Challenge will run in weekly segments with 5 days per segment. Each subsequent segment will be linked to the previous one. THE SOA 30 DAY CHALLENGE Introduction and Days 1-5 By Robin Corak  Once upon a time, many many years ago, I joined the Sisterhood of Avalon. This, my friends, was before the days of Sisterspace and The Isle. While I didn’t have to walk ten miles in the snow each way to get to school, I did have to deal with the rudimentary dreaded technological beast known as Yahoo Groups. This was also before Jhenah’s book Avalon Within came out. I was initially overwhelmed…

    The Awen

    By Joanna van der Hoeven The awen symbol is based on an original design by the 18th-19th century Druid revivalist, Iolo Morganwg. It consists of three lines falling to the right, centre and left. Modern Druidry incorporates the original source point of three dots, which can either be seen as points of light or drops from the cauldron of the goddess Ceridwen. The awen symbol represents, among other things, the triple nature of the Druid path, incorporating the paths of Bard, Ovate and Druid. It is not an ancient symbol, but a modern Druid symbol, used widely by Druids the world over, regardless of their opinion on Iolo and his work.…

    Creating Physical Sisterhood

    Creating Physical Sisterhood By Sharon, the Community Matron There are many things about the Sisterhood of Avalon that set us apart from other spiritual organizations. One of the most important distinctions is our structure and our approach to community. We address hierarchy and priestess craft in a different way than most other contemporary spiritual organizations. We look at our service to community and to the Ladies of Avalon via the energetics and lens of the feminine. Our tradition is focused on personal transformation and internal processes and not external magics or ‘spell craft’. We do not ask to be given, but ask for the tools to see with clarity and live…
